Right now, mid November, there is no need of watering the garden! But in between the showers, the garden needs cleaning up. If you are not afraid of colder weather you are welcome to stay for 1 or 2 weeks, either in November or beginning of December.

I am currently looking for helpers with gardening skills and for other jobs. There is quite a lot of mowing and strimming to be done all year round, as well as weeding, watering the garden so I will need help with these jobs. And of course, pool maintenance!

Typical French country house near village in south-west France. Lovely countryside for walking; biking, canoeing (in summer).

Help requested for gardening, carpentry and painting. Other jobs possible, including pool maintenance. You will have your own room. Bicycle available. I can pick you up either in Cahors or in Figeac or at Brives airport.

From March onwards I need help with cleaning up the garden and the grounds, some pruning of shrubs, making bonfires. There are also some windows to be painted and various other little jobs. If you have skills with restoring dry stone walls, there is work for you! In the summer pool maintenance will be one of your jobs.

All the meals are taken together, and if you like cooking, I'll gladly taste some of your dishes or teach you some of mine. Vegetarians are not a problem, but please no vegans or any special diets and allergies.

Working hours are 4 hours a day (usually from after breakfast till lunch), 6 days a week.

If you can stay from 2 to 4 weeks, that would be perfect.

Although I'm fluent in English, my everyday language is French and I'll be glad to help you with your practice of French. I'm a non-smoker, if you do smoke, it has to be outside!

You are welcome to join in my social life, meeting with my friends, etc.

WIFI access, you can also use my computer if you don't bring your laptop!
