If you choose to stay with us, you will live in an old priory with foundations dating back to the XIIth century, in the middle of the countryside. Village 2 kms away and small town (Falaise, 10000 inhabitants) 6 kms away.
We can provide a bike. There is a small lake and a wood quite near for nature lovers.

We need help to maintain the property. We have an organic garden and a heated swimming pool where you can swim everyday if you like in Summer.

There is always some maintenance work to be done : housework,painting,weeding,gardening, trimming hedges and trees, moving stuff from the barn (my husband's workshop !).

Accommodation is provided in the main building you have your own room and shower. 3 meals a day. We expect around 4-5 hours work a day in exchange for your food and accommodation. We also expect helpers to help generally with the preparing and clearing up at mealtimes, as you would in a family as well as keeping your room clean and tidy.

Work : 4 to 5 hours a day expected, Saturday and Sunday off. Usually 3 hours in the morning and two in the afternoon, very much depending on the weather.
WHO wil you live with ? Dominique and Denis.
We have been married for almost 40 years. I teach English, my husband is a retired estate agent knowing a lot about the area and is always ready to share his knowledge We love meeting new people.
We have raised three children now 30,28 and 24;2 of them are involved in art, the eldest one is a senior manager, currently working in London.

French and English spoken. Plenty of help provided for learners of French. Any nationality welcome but FRENCH. Non-smoker preferably.

On the photographs, you can see helpers at work and the room and bathroom at your disposal.

If you are chatty, it is even better !
