I am looking to start airbnb from a couple of my rooms this summer and I really need some help as soon as possible, to finish off the spaces, people who are creative and competent. I need to change my bath too so some plumbing skills although I guess its a matter of out with old and in with the new. If you are a couple and one of you is interested in helping knock some shape in the garden that would be wonderful.
A morning or an afternoon's work a day, say up to 4hrs a day would be very welcome. The rest of the time would your own to discover the delights of my part of Brittany.

Hi my name is Jacqui, I am English and speak fluent French. I live in a Breton longere, which comprises of a 2 storey house with various outbuildings.
I have lived here for 28 years, and it is very much a project in progress although in the last 12 months I have had considerable work completed in the house, although it is still very much work in progress.
I have roughly three quarters of an acre of land which is broken into parcels including a small mature orchard that needs some tender loving care and serious serous tree pruning, a large area that was once an organic vegetable plot that is for the moment a jungle which I eventually want to restore with raised beds and a walk in poly tunnel, also other areas that are overgrown with brambles/ivy/thistles and other weeds and self seeding saplings.

The house restoration is incomplete so anyone with building/maintenance skills is very welcome.
Initially I am in great need of help de-cluttering areas of my property so that restoration can be continued. I am wanting to become an Airbnb host starting from 2018, using my spare bedroom which needs freshening up and my newly created lounge cum alternative guest room.
For the moment the garden work is heavy duty clearing.
A good pair of gardening gloves essential and boots. I do have an interesting selection of garden hand tools.

The helpers will have their own room (double bed) and share the family bathroom which is on the same floor. Helper are very welcome to join me in the downstairs day room/kitchen area to eat and socialise.

I have to make it very clear that I live in a very rural area and public transport is non existent, I am prepared to do some ferrying around and I'm happy to take helpers out and about when I have errands to take care of. Ideally having your own transport is more practical.
You can either work mornings or afternoons and initially I'm happy to take helpers on a weekly basis to be extended if and when suits.
This is a non smoking household and vegetarians are very welcome. Ideally you either love or tolerate cats :)
I have broadband WIFI/telephone and relatively good mobile phone signals.

Please contact initially by email.
