    We are a young family of 5. (3 boys age 3,6 and 2 months!). My husband Edward is a chef/baker/restaurant owner originally from Somerset in the UK. I am half Japanese and half Canadian. I am a shoe designer. We recently moved to Normandy. Our property consists of several houses set in approx 25 acres of forest and farmland. We have 2 large vegetable gardens, chickens, and garden that we need help with. We are looking to build a few things, wood shed, compost shed etc and general gardening. We have a wood workshop and are fairly well equipped for woodwork projects. We are 15 mins from the ocean where there are an array of activities to be had (kite surfing, fishing, sailing etc) also loads of hiking and cycling in the area. Also located 2.5km from a town that has all kinds of bars, restaurant, cinema, coffee shop, shopping etc.We would ideally looking for someone to help with work on the grounds, walking the dog sometimes, cleaning out chicken coup feeding them etc... We have a self contained 1 bedroom appartement available that could work for a couple or a single person on the grounds. We speak english at home. French at school.

There is plethora of outdoor activities in our are... Horse riding, hiking, fishing, kitesurfing camping...we re near Calvados and are fully in cider country.... There are small islands off our shores that are great for exploring. We are also 3.5 hours from Paris (trains run approx 10 times a day).....

    Definitely need help with the veg garden, building a compost shed, maintenance of the grounds (we have a forest that have some trees that have fallen in the last year or so that will need clearing / collecting up for fire wood). Help with animals (chickens mainly but planning on breeding rabbits as well) secondary to this would be a bit of housework and childcare ideally this would only be possible if a couple came together.

    The time off would be your own, if you wanted more than the 3 days off consecutively then we are flexible in how you would want to work. You need to be able to drive. We are very close to the main train station but you would need a car for general getting around.
