Hi - we're Martin and Jane, and we own a group of old farm cottages just outside the lovely market town of Civray in South West France. Three of the cottages are rented out as gites and we live in the main farmhouse with our 15 year old daughter Amelie, our beautiful golden retrievers Sophie and Fleur, cats Minou, Thao and Loulou and 11 chickens....

We've been renovating, updating and maintaining the gites and grounds (and our own farmhouse when we get time!) since we moved here nearly 7 years ago, and we'd love some enthusiastic help over the winter months, mostly in the garden as well as some general decorating.

In return we can offer you a beautiful self contained and fully equipped cottage (L'Ecurie - you can see lots of photos on our website) which sleeps 2 (a double bed). We provide breakfast, light lunch and evening meals (lots of good home cooking), a very flexible work schedule, time to yourself and a relaxed, caring and fun family atmosphere (English speaking - although Amélie speaks fluent French and we get by....). We're also happy to provide you with bicycles and lifts and welcome you to join any of our family outings or expeditions. The cottage has a very fast, free wi-fi connection for you to use.

If you'd like to join us for a week, a fortnight or even longer - please consider us, we'd love to welcome you here. We have space between now and Christmas - just get in touch!
