  • Beschreibung


    Hi we are an English family living in France. We live in a very large watermill with 2 hectares of land with lake, river canal. We love animals and have dogs, geese, ducks and chickens. We have 3 holiday apartments in our property, run a Garden Centre and Landscaping business. We are an open, easy-going, friendly family and enjoy sharing our home with others and meeting new people. We are vegetarian and grow a lot of our own food.

    Our helpers get the opportunity to learn a variety of new skills. Gary is a very experienced and knowledgeable horticulturalist and former lecturer in Horticulture. Nikki is a former IT trainer and runs her own online admin/proof reading business in addition to the admin and finance side of their business, is the local organiser of Host Families for a language school.
    We live in a peaceful countryside setting and are a busy active family. We have 5 children, our eldest 3 sons are away studying, but visit regularly and our 2 youngest are still at home ( Luc 15 and Francesca 13). We are always busy but enjoy relaxing and socialising too and have many friends from different countries in the area having lived here since 2004. Many of our previous helpers have ended up staying between 3 to 9 months and becoming lifelong friends.

  • Arbeit


    We need help with our own private garden, some renovations, and decorating. It is a large property so general help around the family home and garden is much appreciated. No special skills required just a willingness to help where necessary on a variety of different things. We would welcome enquiries from couples.
    We eat mainly vegetarian food and sometimes fish.
