We are Cait (Irish) and Bridget (English), and we have lived in Normandy for 9 years. We mainly speak English with some French.

We are situated on the edge of the Suisse Normande surrounded by nature and with numerous walking and cycling routes (we have bikes to borrow), lake swimming, kayaking, climbing, zip wires, paintballing and horse riding opportunities all nearby.

Our nearest train station is in Briouze 10km away. The three largest towns equidistance are Flers, Falaise and Argentan. Paris is 200km away or 2.15 hours by train.

We have a small, smallholding of just over 1 hectare, broken down into a forest garden (in its infancy-5 years), 2 polytunnels and permaculture garden, an orchard with pear, poiree (perry) trees, a well (feeding the permaculture garden) and a one acre meadow with a small number of fruit trees.

Accommodation is a bedroom and bathroom annexed to our house (although we may from time to time use the bath in there – especially if too cold to use... more inside

Host is a Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher who runs mindfulness retreats. Have just moved house so need help in autumn & spring with gardening.

Vegetarian organic cooking. You will have your own room in our house. Prefer people with experience.

Plans for 2019 is to improve the veggie garden and create a permaculture forest garden. Also to convert stone hut into a summer dwelling with solar shower and compost toilet.

Beautiful location on edge of medieval village with train station. South facing with view over forest - fantastic walks. We have bikes to borrow. Great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding.

What we offer is space for you to reconnect with yourself and nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.
Helpers are welcome to join in weekly yoga classes.

We are renovating a house in France in the Lot department. Our two hectares is being converted into flower garden, vegetable garden, woodland area etc. We have two horses, two cats and lots of chickens. In the summer we are fairly self-sufficient. The weather is glorious and we love the relaxed attitudes here. There is much to do and it's impossible to list exact details so I have described the general projects below.

THE GARDEN

We are completely swamped with renovation work and really need some help with the vegetable garden and creating the flower garden. We are especially interested in connecting with people that have horticultural knowledge so that we can also improve our knowledge.

* general maintenance - mowing, weeding, watering, sowing etc.
* September 2019 - we need to plan winter and spring crops
