Bonjour!

WE WOULD BE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE HELPER(S) FOR 2 WEEKS STARTING THIRD WEEK OF NOVEMBER APPROX. FOR GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND GARDENING.THANK YOU!


We are a french family, Christian (58), Rosine (48)and Lili (11) with 4 delightful pets: Jingle and Geisha, our enthusiastic dogs and Clark and Gable, our young cats.
We used to travel world wide and now have settled down in a 19th century old farm in the beautiful countryside of Pamiers, Ariege.
I work as a teacher and Christian is a data consultant. Christian plays the guitar and I am interested in modeling clay.
We are 'bons vivants' as we say in french. Easy to meet, we appreciate good company and love foreigners!

Our farm is mostly renovated. However, we have many ongoing projects: fence work in the horses fields, clear up the stables, renovate the poultry house, some gardening to embellish the premisses.

Professional skills are appreciated but enthusiastic, conscientious people that pay attention to details, a... more inside

There's a lot to discover in the area and the beach isn't far at all. you will enjoy the small swimming pool under the veranda when the weather becomes colder and the fire in the chimney in the living room.

Horse Stud in Chevannes, department Nièvre, region Burgandy (Bourgogne) in France.

In 2011, our stud is classified 2nd endurance horse stud of French top 100.

We breed horse barb, arabian-barb, anglo-arabian and arabian horses. Our four-legged family consists of 52 members, stallions, mares, foals and grown-up horses that we ride mainly to prepare them for endurance races competition. We are waiting the birth of 8 babies in spring 2014

My husband and myself host helpers having passion and love for horse.

In exchange of accomodations, and riding gratis (only if you are an excellent english style horse rider), you will share some activities with horses: feeding, mushing, cleaning stables, breeding. Could sometimes be a little gardening in the garden in season (rare).

The rider who wants to improve his technical farriery could look, learn and help my husband, who puts shoes (iron or plastic) to our horses, so may be you can become a beginner blacksmith !

To ride, you... more inside

For the remainder of this year we don't need any more helpers.
Next March we start again.

We are John and Patricia, a Dutch couple, who live in Normandy. We speak Dutch and English( and understand German) but from our French you get tears in your eyes.....
So for people who want to improve their French this is probably not the best place to come.....Or you take a 5 minute walk to the local village where ALL people speak French and are very friendly. There are some bars but no night entertainment.

Physically and mentally fit people wanted who like to ( help us) maintain a large exciting domain. Come and be part of our family, when we are busy doing our day to day duties. You don't live in our house but have a separate house for yourself, so lots of privacy for you and also for us ;-)
Due to some bad experiences with helpers who saw our place as a cheap resort we now only take helpers with former experience and references.
We like to welcome people with a healthy work eth... more inside

I am James, 63 years old, single!

I am renovating a pair of houses at the edge of the Lac de Guerledan although the renovation is on hold for the moment. I need help with mostly outdoor work such as tree cutting, log splitting, etc, therefore boys are preferred due to the manner of the work involved.

You will be rewarded for your hard work!

You don't have to be skilled, just willing and able.

The accomodation for helpers is a small caravan which is dry and very comfortable, with electricity, but in the small house there is hot water, shower, cooking facilities, fridge, washing machine. There is internet access and TV, in exchange for 25/30 hours per week. I am only able to accommodate 1 helper at a time.

The area is very popular for walkers, cyclists and canoeists. I have a bike for helpers to use. The property is right on the Nantes - Brest canal which in total covers 400km. The Lac de Guerledan is a popular resort especially in the summer months and will be emptie... more inside
