Last Updated: November 11, 2019

A small mansion in Normandy, 1km from the sea and the local fishing village. In the area of the D-Day landings of June 6th 1944. Close to Point du Hoc and, Omaha Beach. We have a fruit orchard, a vegetable garden and a poultry yard with chickens, geese and rabbits. Help is needed all year long with all manner of things to be done. We have a large garden where we want to grow as many vegetables as we can to maintain our family and our helpers. I can teach you how to make jam, cheese and how to preserve fruits and vegetables You will share our family life for the meals and have your room in the main house. I speak french, english and a bit of italian. Access to internet The location shown on the host map with the red dot is not good. Our place is west in Normandy on the coast
I need a helper able to use a chainsaw and to mow lawns with a tractor from the middle of November for two or three weeks;work might be sometimes a bit hard and better suitable for young and strong men
