  • Description

    Description

    We are a friendly, lively family of four: Alison, John and two kids Ben, 17, and Maddy, 20. We have lived in Normandy for over 20 years and would be very happy to welcome you to this lovely part of France. Set in an idyllic cider apple orchard with resident barn owls, this is a great base for exploring Normandy with its D-Day sites, Bayeux Tapestry and lots more! We are really close to a local green way which goes all the way to the Mont-Saint-Michel, a good day's cycle ride. We are happy to lend you our bikes to explore more locally. Vire, our nearest town, has a decent sized swimming pool, cinema, theatre and bowling alley. The local food is great and we all enjoy sitting down together in the evening for dinner or a barbecue and strumming away afterwards on the guitar.
    Getting here couldn't be easier. The nearest train station is in Vire, about 15 minutes away and there is a regular train service from Paris.

    A bientôt !

    Workaway is a wonderful cultural exchange and a win-win for everyone involved!

    Help

    We are really looking for a hand around the property with some light building work for example some pointing and help with the gardening and outdoor maintenance. A positive attitude and self discipline for getting the job done are really welcome.

    We speak English at home, although we do all speak good French but not together. My German is good.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a detached house with two bedrooms plus bathroom with shower just for the volunteers which would suit a couple and /someone travelling by themselves. As to internet access, we have an unlimited connection.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Chez nous is also home to several cats, so anyone coming to stay would ideally be cat friendly and enjoy a cuddle with Floppy, Dora and Cara from time to time. As a family, we have a varied diet and it might be complicated to adapt the family cooking to suit vegans. Non-smokers only, please, as my husband is asthmatic.
    We are also English-speakers, so this is not necessarily the best spot to brush up on your French!
