We're hoping to find a practical person or couple to help with loads of different tasks around our house, stables and B&B, 20km south of Caen in Normandy.
The help we need is varied, so you should have experience with general maintenance, gardening, painting, DIY etc.
Busy, friendly, very hard-working farming family with 3 kids, a dog and 2 cats - come with a smile, sense of humour and a willing attitude! We produce our own meat and dairy (milk, cream, yoghurt) so would prefer helpers who can fit in with this diet. You will eat well and we like to relax with a beer or glass of wine with dinner at the end of the day.
Simple accommodation, good food and a warm welcome assured! Prefer helpers who can stay for at least 3 weeks.
