PLACEMENT WITHIN THE TIMESCALE OF END MARCH TO MID APRIL
ABOUT US
We are Tony and Louise and have lived in this lovely part of Normandy for 5 years. We took early retirement and moved from England to France to set up our smallholding on 7 acres. We have also been renovating our house which is now finished and runs as a Bed and Breakfast during the summer months. Our house in non-smoking.

ABOUT OUR SMALLHOLDING
We have a small flock of sheep which are kept for breeding and meat production, also we have a few chickens raised for egg production and meat. In the autumn we make apple juice and cider from our cider apple trees, and during the summer period there is always preserving of produce from the vegetable patch. We also have two dogs and a cat.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for someone (or a couple) to come and help us in return for lovely accommodation, good food and (we think) good company. This Spring we are looking for someone who can help with fencing a boundary, working in the vegetable garden and garden, preparing beds for the summer planting, and generally keeping it tidy. If the weather is not too good we will take the opportunity to carry out some inside jobs or have a day or rest. There are always jobs to be done!!

Although we run a Bed and Breakfast you would not be expected to help us in this work,other than to be a smiling face when you are around and engaging with our guests from a number of countries and cultures - a smile can open many doors.

ACCOMMODATION
We will offer you the chance to live as one of the family eating together at mealtimes. We provide a breakfast, a light lunch and an evening meal. The bedroom is newly decorated with central heating and has lovely views over the surrounding countryside. You will have a bathroom to yourself unless we have friends and family staying, in which case you would share with a maximum of two people.

WHERE WE ARE
We are an ideal stop if heading towards, or coming from, the United Kingdom. We are 1.5 hours from the Ferry Port of Ouisterham/Caen with boats sailing to Portsmouth. There is a bus service and we can pick you up from the town of Flers. If you are coming from Paris there is a regular train service to Flers where we can collect you. When you know your travel arrangement we can help you work out buses etc. to make your journey easier.
