Small English family - Rural France, the Dordogne.

Happy household in a rural rustic location.

Looking for helper/s.

To enjoy being here you need to like:
- children & animals
- other people & time alone

We have a large garden, an old house, a lake, fencing, etc.
We love to meeting new people and can always do with help with the above (both projects and maintenance).

We can be away at times and would need helpers to be happy house-sitting also.

Animals include:
- 3 equines (1 old, 2 middle-aged, one of which is a shetland)
- 3 cats
- 2 dogs
- 1 rabbit
- 1 parrot
- 1 goat
- 2 chickens
- 3 guinea pigs

Local activities & sights range from walking, hiking, cycling, canoeing and swimming to prehistoric caves and medieval chateaux.

In general helpers help about 20 hours a week, but in a very flexible way, and do not share a bedroom unless they arrive as such (couples or friends).

We also have a caravan for those who like a more private space.

Lastly, non-smokers preferred (horses, hay, straw, children...).
