*** We currently have space for French-speakers to start from mid-April ***
We are Debbie and Daniel we moved to Normandy from the UK in 2000. Our vegetarian Guest house and restaurant is in the stunning Pays d`Auge area, we have 4 acres of beautiful gardens that we manage organically, we grow lots of vegetables and fruit for our hotel and helpers. We have chickens, ducks and turkeys, we only eat their eggs! The work varies depending on what time of the year you come. From May until September when the guest house and restaurant is open we need help with the general running of the place and jobs in the garden. Outside of these months the work is mainly projects in the gardens and general DIY etc. Between May and September we generally only take helpers who can stay for a minimum of 6 weeks and we give priority to those who can stay longer.
In return we give you good accommodation in a house next door to the hotel just for helpers and also on the top floor of the hotel. The house has a lounge with tv/dvd/internet a dining room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and bathroom and the top floor of the hotel a further 2 bedrooms, shower room and lounge. Vegetarian and vegan food, plentiful ingredients supplied, organic vegetables from the garden where possible, you won`t be hungry! When we are closed from October - March we are always looking for couples to animal and house sit while we take a break away. We love having helpxers and bringing people together. Helpers remain friends and often return year after year. We are situated 5 minutes away from the nearest town from where you can get transport to the coast and lots of interesting towns and cities. We have bikes you can use to explore the countryside and visit local villages and there are lots of beautiful walks to do in the area. If you are looking for a fun place to helpx in the glorious French countryside we are looking forward to hearing from you! Email us for lots more details than we can fit here, hoping to meet you soon! Debbie and Daniel
