We are a young couple (Mathieu is French and sophie is English) with a baby (1.5 years) who Are renovating a house in a beach town. The work can involve any of the following: up cycling furniture, painting and decorating, gardening, plumbing would be amazing, cleaning, sanding, helping out with the ducks and chickens and more...! We will also soon be starting the garage conversion soon so construction/building experience would be great too:)

We are in or twenties (although Mathieu just turned 30 lol!!) and are laid back people who like a good wine (although we’re in no way pros) and love food!

We would expect roughly 4 sometimes 5 hours per day per person, and of course if you'd like days off to explore you can spread this out how you like over the week! We’d also love it if you could help out with cooking occasionally. In exchange for this you have breakfast and dinner and of course a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom etc! (You’re welcome to have lunch too but it’s very basic and normally just pasta, bread etc) My number is +33786816897

You are welcome to either stay at our house, in the renovation house near the beach, or our 2 bedroom mobile home on a fishing lake (pond?!) a 5 minute walk from our house. The country house has +200 ducks and chickens, dog, cats, tortoises and is 10 minutes from our new place or in the house being renovated there is everything you need, hot water, kitchen, bedroom, WiFi and is walkable distance to shops, restaurants, public transport and the Beach. We rent our main house out on Airbnb at the weekends but you’re welcome to stay either our mobile home or on the renovation project :)

We would love help from anyone who is willing to stay at least 1week and would now start considering long term stays to help out with various projects if the skill set is right and we have a good vibe! We both work so I will only be on the project, wednesday, Friday for a little bit and Saturday or Sunday (with Mathieu) but you’ll get to know the different things that need doing and we’re never far away if you have questions :) a driving license can be handy to get around here but otherwise we can lend you a bike.

We love -
Nature, being outside, learning about other cultures, travelling, open minded people and having our helpers around :)

We don’t love -
Laziness, selfishness, taking things for granted, rudeness... and especially people who make other helpers feel bad :(

A mega plus would be anyone who’s good at woodwork or carpenters that might be able to make us some french style shutters to stick on the front windows!
