My name is Josie and I have a small holding here in Frances best kept secret, here at La Menantelliere in the Deux Sevres south west France. I am looking for help with a couple of projects, which require help with decorating and gardening. I would like to invite you to my little slice of heaven. In exchange for your services I am a very good cook and happy to introduce you to yoga, meditation and pranayama.

Throughout the year we are constantly working in the garden, woodland and potager, and working in the house and gite. We grow organically and work with permaculture and huglekulture systems. I am a strong advocate of reducing my carbon foot print on the earth through recycling, composting and being self sufficient most of the year from the potager.

I am in the middle of restoring the house which is over 100 years old, the restoration work is being sympathetically done, I would like to have someone to help around the house, I could do with help in carpentry, some plumbing, plastering and decorating. We also have a large organic kitchen garden, with livestock chickens and pigs. I am currently working on a small art project for the garden and would like help with that too.

Common sense & independent thought process is essential. Most of the help I need will be in the kitchen garden, decorating and general handyman skills around the property. I am happy to consider either a couple or a single person who would perfectly fit the task.

If you don't have your own transport I am happy to pick you up from the local train or bus station at Niort or Fontenay Le Compte.

If you think that this fits your idea of a 'helpx' assignment, then I would be very pleased to hear from you. Although this is my first time looking for a 'helpx' visit, I am very used to people holidaying in our gite and all our experiences have been very positive.
