We are an English family (Olek is of French and Polish heritage and speaks French fluently) with two children (16 and 15yrs) and two young dogs living in a village in Higher Normandy, classed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. For this autumn we need to clear out some rooms that have been used as a dumping ground and to organise Olek's workshop so that he has somewhere to paint his pictures indoors. We have a large garden and an overgrown vegetable plot. We can use help in lots of different areas for a few hours a day to assist our busy and sociable lifestyle. We usually sit down for a cooked evening meals at the table (sometimes on the sofa in front of TV). Lunch is usually sandwich, soup or salad. We are a lively family – lots of laughs, arguments quickly resolved always something going on – friends stop by, phone rings often for bookings or friends just for a chat. Both of our dogs are lively and loving, both are cheeky monkeys and try stealing food and anything that is lying around when they are bored and want to play. We’re non smokers but smoking outside is ok. You’ll have freedom of the fridge and will be treated as part of the family but we will respect your privacy and you are free to do your own thing in your spare time.

We are English speaking at home and most of us are fluent in French too. We live in a beautiful village and are happy to exchange food and living ideas as well as showing you around our beautiful countryside and places of interest such as Rouen and Paris.
We can accommodate a couple to stay in a double room with a double bed or a single person will be equally welcome. Our first priority this Autumn is to clear out some ancient storage rooms and need help to sort through, dispose of rubbish and tidy the remaining items. We also need to weed and prepare our back garden for the winter months. We also need help with redecoration - installing our kitchen, repainting outside and inside the house, plumbing, carpentry skills can all be utilised.
1 double bedroom where we live with access to kitchen, bathroom and garden. French and English Television.
Our village is surrounded by France's largest Beechwood forest. We live in an area rich in history (William the Conqueror and his son, Richard the Lionheart and many Kings of France lived or passed through our village). Not far from the cities of Rouen (45 minutes drive) and Paris (1.15 minutes drive or accessible by train). The gardens of Giverney are 50 minutes drive away and there is a local abbey, chateau and gardens nearby to visit along with numerous walks through the forest which you can do without having to drive anywhere first. Our village is a small but active one, with bars, restaurants and hotels that are especially busy at the weekends or during high season.
