We are a retired English couple, we live in an old stone farmhouse in a lovely rural area in Western Loire.
The village is on the river Mayenne, and is about 3km away from our home.
The nearest town Chateau Gontier is about a 10 minute drive, it is a charming floral town also on the river Mayenne.(In May 2016, Château-Gontier was voted "most beautiful city in France that is worth seeing").
This is wonderful area for all sorts of outdoor pursuits, the enchanting Mayenne river has a towpath that stretches 100 km an ideal way to see the heart of rural France, walking or cycling, lots of stuff to do, places to see for those who like to explore.
We are looking for helpers who have good DIY skills, a carpenter/joiner would be good.
We also need help with the veggie plot, hedge cutting, strimming, grass cutting, gardening, woodcutting.
Some painting both inside and outside
We also have a Gypsy wagon that needs renovating
so if you have the skill to help with this project you would be most welcome.
Your accommodation would be a 2 bedroomed mobile home, it's clean and comfortable, it gives you your own private space.
If you wish to explore the area during your stay then you will need some means of transport
(although we do have a couple of old bicycles you could borrow to get around locally)
