    Description

    I am a widower and have been living on my own for the last 14 years in a large stone house with a separate self catering one bedroom modern appartement which requires final painting and decorating.
    The property is in a rural location in SW France near to towns such as Agen and Villeneuve.
    It is situated in approx 6 Acres of ground but most is woodland which requires little maintenance.
    Accommodation is in the main house until final work on the separate appartment is completed, approx two weeks work.
    I have unlimited internet access but as with all of rural France sometimes slow.
    I have two elderly dogs and a cat and my main hobby is a couple of vintage cars.
    I have a large swimming pool and about two acres of flat garden with Fruit trees and Grass.
    Need help with general maintenance ànd gardening. I have an extensive circle of resident friends and a pretty good social life, plenty of activity if people are outgoing.
    I would like to have general help around the property, depends on the range of skills of the guest.
