We are a lovely family with two small kids that just purchased a wonderful farm house and gte (little cottage). We gave a beautiful flower garden and need some help with the maintenance of the garden and land. We have a cottage where you can be during your stay.

The cottage at la Vilatte, located in the heart of the Bourbonnais is a picturesque countryside home offering 1-4 persons occupancy. It provides a welcoming space for relaxation. It is an ideal destination for families or friends who want to explore Auvergne in a peaceful, comfortable and luxurious way. Indeed, our peaceful cottage is located in a countryside setting with no nuisances. Yet, it is accessible to most Auvergne tourist attraction for day trips since our place is located 5km from the motorway. Inside, our Cottage is tastefully decorated and offers all facilities and comfort.

The surrounding area is perfect for beautiful forest walks (at 10min walk from the cottage) or bicycle rides. A lot of lakes are open to public for walks and swims. Being in the heart of the Bourbonnais, you can also explore the rich architectural heritage from the surrounding villages with their festivals in the summer and lively markets year round. The Bourbonnais being the region of the kings of Bourbon, there is the possibility to visit numerous chateaux. In addition, at less than 20km, you will find a 18-hole golf, a casino and one of the oldest thermal resorts of France. Kayaking and canoeing is available at 45 min drive in the gorges de la Sioule. The cottage is located not far from a volcano region and therefore major Auvergne tourist attractions such as "le parc des Volcans" or Vulcania are accessible for day trips. In addition, in winter month skiing is possible at 2h drive from the cottage.

We look for motivated people that preferably have some experience with plants, fencing etc but if you are strong and motivated you can always apply. We want to re arrange some parts of the garden and fence part of the land. We would ask you to help for about 4-5 hours a day or a full day and one day off- this can all be discussed.
