Area: South EastI run a very small B&B during the summers with only 2 rooms in this lovely seaside resort. We are 500m away from the sea, wonderful woodlands and 20/30 minutes away from 2 towns with all amenities. I am a single lady of 60 who needs some help in the garden with strimming of bushes and higher grass. Improving the irrigation system in the lower garden. Cutting trees, digging out a fence and re-digging the raspberry plot. I will also need some help with painting and maintenance of the house. I have to put in a dehumidifying system in the basement this spring, involving a small amount of bricklaying and installing a dehumidifier. I'm able to do the specific tasks myself but there are not enough hours in a day, so I would love some help. In exchange I offer you, your own room, breakfast and dinner I'm a good cook. For lunch you can cook, have some left overs or some sandwiches. I will of course make it possible for you to see as much as possible of the area and integrate with the community. We do live in a lovely area, with tennis courts, golf courses and sailing facilities at the doorstep. Sports hall for exercise classes and badminton. Lovely sand beaches along the whole island and amazing nature. Wonderful woodlands for runs, biking, horse back riding and mushroom picking.
