  • Description

    Description

    I'm a 65 year old Englishwoman who has lived in the Bay du Mont St Michel, Brittany, France for over 20 years. I live alone with a Border Collie who loves exercise in a three bedroomed stone house in large grounds. I have 2 fields with 3 donkeys, 4 sheep and 1 goat.
    I have little money and a very bad back so am frustratingly restricted in what I can do.
    However I still manage to travel in my old campervan.

    Tranquil, but not isolated. Shops and public transport at 2 kms. Use of bikes.

    I'm a part-time English coach, speak French and I'm learning Spanish.

    Help

    General help - household cleaning, vegetable garden, helping with animals, general maintenance (repairing garden furniture, small bits of decoration, helping me organise my sheds, etc.). Firewood collection.

    I don't usually cook, but would be happy to share meals if you wanted to cook. I don't eat meat, but love fish and vegetables. I will provide your food even if I don't cook it!

    If you were a native Spanish speaker who could help me learn it would be a bonus! I can help you with your English. Some decorating, help in garden and with animals.

    You could be 1 or 2 people, any age.
