We are looking for a friendly, reliable helper with a driving licence to join us for varied help which will include gardening, painting, driving/school runs, light housework, laundry, some cooking if you like to be in the kitchen, general maintenance, animal care (horses, ponies, poultry)...there's always something to do...

We have three bilingual children aged 6, 9 and 12 and we live on a Normandy dairy farm which also has a B&B and small horse livery yard.

We always have outdoor maintenance projects on the go, so if you have carpentry, painting, gardening skills, please get in touch. For the next few weeks, we have plenty of painting and gardening. There's always help needed with mucking out and if you can ride to a decent level, you can help to exercise our competition (show jumping) ponies.

We are located in a small village but Caen city is 20 minutes away and you will have shared use of a car.

We ask that you come with a willingness to muck in and a positive attitude - some jobs will be outside, some dirty, sometimes on your please only get in touch if you are happy with that. In return, you will be treated as a family member, enjoy 3 meals a day and have a comfortable bedroom. We speak English and French so if you are interested in these languages, you can practise both!

We look forward to hearing from you.
