Hello !

We are a french couple and we are living in a small town near Paris (direct access to Paris with public transport).

We have a big garden and an old house and we are looking for people who can help us to maintain it.

We prefer to host one person at the time, you'll have your own bedroom where there is a double bed. You'll share meals and bathroom with the family.

Work won't be hard, probably some weeding but there is always plenty of different things to do depending on your skills!

We speak a bit of English, Spanish and German, so there'll be always a way to understand each other!!

We receive a lot of demands, sorry if we can't answer to all.

Organic Status: Organic sustainable permaculture

URGENT HELP NEEDED from 7 June 2015 from people who are young at heart and open-minded. LONG TERM help would be ideal.

We moved to France in 2008 from Scotland with the aim of living more ecologically and are passionate about sustainability. We live on the edge of the Perche National Park in a small hamlet and have an old house with barn and outbuildings together with 7 hectares (17 acres) of land. Our nearest village is 2.5 km (1 mile) away and the nearest town, La Ferte Bernard is 5.5 miles to the south with good facilities. From La Ferte Bernard there are easy, direct rail and road links to Le Mans (30 miles) and Paris (105 miles).

Accommodation would be in the house with us and food is sharing our daily repas. It's a bit mad and hectic at times as I am now on my own with my 3 very noisy boys and that is part of the reason that I need some help - the farm needs some TLC after being left last year. I guess I'm just looking to have a friend here, someone who would help with ... more inside

There is so much to do here on the Presqu'ile de Crozon if you like outdoor activities -hiking,biking, diving, wind-kite-surfing, horseback riding, kayaking and sailing. It really is a beautiful area. We love it here. I think you would, too.
