Location .

We live in a village near Vire (Calvados ), in Basse Normandy . It is well placed for main motorways and about 1 1/4 hrs from the main ferry ports of Caen / Cherbourg / Le Harve and St Malo . Beautiful beaches and charming seaside town Granville are 45mins drive , Mont St Michel and the D-Day beaches and Bayeaux ( tapestry ) about an hour away . Vire has a good main line train service to Paris and airports at Rennes and Dinard are about 1 1/2 hrs away .

The House .

We are curently in the process of renovating a 'Maison de Maitre'and would guess we are some 70% through the work . We would welcome any assistance in finishing the house and in return for work would offer full board - all meals etc and continuous supply of wine and beer if required , although it might be a good idea for most of it to be drunk after work .

The work .

All sorts really , the usual stuff from general light labouring outside, decorating / painting and general DIY inside to some remaining plastering , wiring , carpentry and plumbing etc . Tasks and hours etc could be negotiated and would be pretty informal , a suggestion might be to split the time 50/50 between work and holiday , however we are open to ideas and are pretty laid back over here .
