No smokers, I drink wine, or beer, no problem if you do too!

I am a 70 year old technician. I speak English, German, French and some Spanish.

Simple old French house needing simple renovation work, located in a very small village. It is merely a secondary residence for me, as I live elsewhere. Roof work (only light stuff), Electrical work, garden work (very small), woodwork, insulation, required. General old joint stuff! Nothing fancy! This is a place only for those who are prepared to rough it a bit.

Normally, I do the technical work, so I am looking for someone basically prepared to do boring stuff, because it is half the battle when I can work with disturbances. I expect approximately 5 hours light work.

However, I can see 2 scenarios:

Option 1. Someone who can cook (I am vegetarian only, you eat what you want), do washing up, drying dishes, cleaning up, for just the two of us and the occasional stray cat(s). If you open a can of baked beans and make porridge, you will be fine!

Option 2. One person who can do a bit of everything above, technical included, also good.

The sex and age of the person is unimportant.

I am flexible on this issue!

The region of Aquitaine is very attractive, with a pleasant moderate climate. My area is mostly farming, cattle, forestry, etc. For someone who likes fresh air, serenity, hiking a bit, then so do I. There is some good walking. The village is very small I am afraid but, there are things going on in surrounding villages, constantly.
