Hello everyone!

I'm 44, I'm French and I live with my 12-year-old son,in an old traditional norman farm, with several ancient buildings,3 ha of land and a river at the edge of the property,in Normandy. It's a very peaceful place and if you like calm and nature you will be delighted.
There's a Greenway(London-Dieppe-Paris) 200m from the house, where you can go hiking, cycling, rollerblading, etc... and the sea is at 25 kms (Dieppe).
I've got a dog, 2 cats and 2 horses.I speak French and English.

I need help to maintain the garden and the whole property, mainly for outdoor activities : mowing the lawn, cutting wood, strimming hedges, weeding, fixing fences, cleaning river banks..

One of the buildings has been renovated as a gite, and there'a also a bit of maintenance to do there,(cleaning on saturday, helping customers and gardening)

There's also a room I would like to renovate : cleaning and painting walls, floor and ceiling.

I 'm asking for 4 hours of work per... more inside

We are an English couple living in a beautiful little valley in Normandy with a few goats, basque pigs, hens, geese, bees, vegetables and fruit trees for our own consumption.
Chris is an artist but is currently working on rebuilding a barn to make a small house to rent. The walls, roof and windows are done but there is still a lot to do! We are using ecological materials and traditional building techniques where possible like lime hemp.
Laura is an English teacher and upholsterer.
Help needed depends on the building work in progress, the season, weather, and your skills. soon there could be a kitchen to build, floor to lay, greenhouse to construct etc.
We enjoy cooking, gardening, walking, travelling, swimming in the sea, watching movies etc. and would be happy to show you around.
The sea is 1 km away and 30 mins by car to Cherbourg (not many buses unfortunately)

We are an English family and have lived in France since the beginning of 2005. We are Richard, a retired forester, and Sue, a part-time teacher.

We live on a 5 ha small-holding and our intention is to be as self-sufficient as possible. During the winter months, we cut wood from the traditionally managed bocage hedgerows, to power our wood burners the following year. We have a small vegetable garden, that we are trying to enlarge and keep our own sheep, pigs and hens.

Richard and Sue have both worked in the countryside over many years and believe in maintaining a balance between their needs and the needs of indigenous wildlife.

Our own menagerie also includes two dogs, a cat (definitely 'The Boss"), a horse and a miniature horse.

The property is an old farm complex and has several outbuildings, including a gîte (a converted farmworker's cottage).

We realise that it would be difficult for one helper to provide all types of assistance, so we will gradually work t... more inside
