Area: LimousinWe are Mike and Audrey, a retired couple living in Central France. We are very much self supporting and we love gardening (all organic), bee keeping, fishing and nature in general. English is our first language but we can also get by very well in French, without calling ourselves fluent. We are active in the local music scene, both amongst the English community and also the French traditional music culture.. As we are getting older, we are struggling to keep up to date with about an acre of garden, and two small fishing lakes, and would be happy for someone to give us a hand to manage them.
Area: Auvergne***We have space from the end of April onward *** We, Eric and Caroline are a Dutch couple (35 & 40) that moved to France in 2010 to start a small hotel-restaurant-bar in a beautiful mountainous/volcanic area in the middle of France. This is outdoor-country with lots of walking and cycling trails, fishing, parapenting, etc. etc. In the winter there is a large ski area at 15 minutes drive (Superbesse). Our hotel has a homely atmosphere with 4 rooms and we have a restaurant with local specialities, bar, garden and terrace. We do 99% of the work ourselves. Caroline is the main cook and washing lady and Eric does most of the maintenance, admin, marketing, construction work, waitering, bartendering, shopping. Cleaning is our joined task. July/August are the busiest periods in which we can just handle the work by ourselves. At the same time there is still a lot of other work to be done as well, such as maintenance work, garden & vegetable garden and making our appartment on the attic. We also have two lovely young dogs that get a bit neglected in the high season... Off season we spend our time on small maintenance and larger renovation projects, such as painting, making our appartment on the attic, preparing the garden for the winter etc.
