Help with gardening work. A modern countryside villa with large landscaped garden desperately needing attention.

We are a mature English couple unable to work as hard as we used to and require helpers who are mature-minded IDEALLY couples/partners or two friends. Enthusiasm and energy are more important than gardening experience, but you must be physically fit, strong and competent with tools, both manual and petrol driven. We would like helpers with a willingness to clear and tidy neglected areas as well as weeding, planting, strimming and hedge trimming. Collecting leaves, rubbish and trimmings and taking them to the local waste disposal site. We have an old van for this purpose, so a driving licence would be useful. We also have a lively dog, who will become your best friend once she has overcome her initial wariness.

In return for 4-5 hours work a day we will provide you with comfortable private accommodation (2 bedrooms, shower room, living room/kitchen, heating) and three meals.

We are 1.5km from a small village with a bar/shop/Post Office and 5km from Condom a market town with historic interest and close to the St Jacques de Compostele pilgrimage route. This is a very quiet area with lovely unspoilt countryside. If you are looking for lively night-life, this is not for you.

Own transport would be useful, but we have bicycles for your use. If you are looking for an alternative working holiday in a beautiful part of SW France please contact us by email.
