located on the south-west coast of France, we own an old farm which, back in these days was employing around 50 employees. Commercial activities stopped and buildings were then left to mother nature's rules. We bought that house in 1999, and are still renovating it. We, Daniel and Patricia, will host you in a convivial atmosphere. I breed great danes and jack-russels and work on renovating our house . Our English is not fluent(we are a french couple) so we'd expect you to try and speak French as often as you can, our English being here to help you in cases. You would notice that we do love animals as on the property are: cats, great danes, jack-russels, 3 horses, a 5yo stalion, donkeys, chickens, pigeons (and sorry for the ones i'd have forgotten).
We have 2 bedrooms with 1 kingsize bed and another bedroom with a single bed. House has a wireless access, and bedrooms have their own TV. There is a bike that you can borrow,and daily use of the internet.

Bonjour à tous (English version below)

Je m’appelle Alix et suis une mère de famille de 53 ans élevant seule 1 ado : garçon de 17 ans et une pré-ado : fille de 12 ans : 2 enfants adorables et attachants. Ma mère, âgée de 80 ans habite la maison mitoyenne. Elle est totalement autonome.

C’est ma 1ère expérience en temps que « host ».

Je recherche uniquement des anglophones car je
souhaite aussi (à l’occasion d’échanges entre nous) pouvoir converser en anglais pour améliorer mon niveau. Il en sera de même vis-à-vis de mes 2 enfants qui ont besoin d’être aidés en langue étrangère : notions d’espagnol et d’allemand souhaitées si possible. Une aide aux devoirs à partir de 17h serait pour moi d’une aide précieuse, car la motivation fait défaut. Sinon : tant pis.

Pas de souci si vous ne parlez pas le français !!!

Pour le reste, il s’agit de travaux de ménage à faire régulièrement sur les 2 maisons ainsi que la préparation des repas : française ou autre. Pas de végétariens... more inside

If you are planning a trip this year, we would love to hear from you.

English couple with 2 dogs.
We normally accept helpers for a minimum of two weeks.
Peaceful location in rural France.

During the winter months our projects include Carpentry, Plastering, decorating and wood cutting.
Then as the weather improves we will be looking for help with building a shed, laying paths and decking and installing a new fish pond and gardening.

We are not seeking helpers that only want to clean and cook.

We are non smoking and prefer helpers that do not smoke. Helpers should be happy to live as part of the team during their stay, we would expect this to involve helping prepare meals and the inevitable clearing away after.

We accept vegetarians but cannot cater for vegans.
We accept both skilled or unskilled people. We need people able to work on their own initiative. We will show you how to do the job and provide the necessary equipment and protective clothing although you need your own footwear suitable for outside work.

We are now looking for a couple or two friends ideally for a very long stay of around a year, or for a shorter stay of up to 6 weeks or so, starting as soon as possible. Ideally we would like to have a girl, to look after the kids and basically take on the role of an au pair and a boy, to finish renovating the new apartment which will be your living accommodation. Cooking the evening meal is part of the job and we a food lovers paradise, with amazing local products.

I have a second business so you may well be called on to help me with that too. A driving licence and an ability to drive a manual car are absolutely essential. If you both cannot drive please do not apply.

I will provide food and your own separate accommodation - although right now it needs a lot of work. It will be liveable in but still needs most of the finishing doing.

While we are a bilingual family we speak only English at home, but would be happy to have other language speakers as long as they are pr... more inside
