Region: Lower NormandyMy husband and I are a young couple who live in beautiful Normandy with our lovely 20 month old baby daughter Jasmine. We need help with various projects indoors and outdoors. For girls this is mainly helping me at home and for boys this is helping Nico on site with the renovation project. 1 - I work from home helping English people with settling into France (I am English and Nico is French, we are both bi-lingual), so I need some help at home while I work. This is mainly cleaning, cooking, tidying, gardening and babysitting. 2- My mum lives close by and again needs similar help to us. It is also quite nice to change places for a few days. 3- We recently bought a traditional Normandy second home nearby which my husband is restoring. He has finished the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and has now started on the living area and upstairs bedrooms. The work here is painting, sanding, plastering and helping with general building if you are interested. We are also doing lots of work in our 6 and a half acre garden which is actually an orchard at the moment! We are looking for volunteers to help us for stays of 2 weeks minimum. We welcome single (male or female) travellers and also couples. If you are travelling as a couple you may not necessarily be working together. We expect 5 hours work 5 days a week in return for your accommodation and all your basic food. We love the idea of Workaway, being able to make new friends from different countries!
