    Looking for help with the renovations. Gardening, Carpenter, Electrics or Plumbing.

    I have renovated 2 of the barns and now need help for the main house.

    I am doing the renovations on the house to run a holiday center for special needs children, adolescents or adults. This will be run as a charity and we would appreciate any help.

    I was a teacher of special needs children in England and have a B.Ed in Special needs. If you are interested in helping I would love to accommodate you. I speak excellent French some Spanish, a minute amount of German but I am very interested in languages and other cultures.

    We provide breakfast and 2 home cooked meals a day.

    Wifi available.

    Hours flexible

    We are in the middle of the d-day battle areas with many historic and interesting places to see. Also Bungy jumping down the road, adventure areas, Historic and cultural areas so much to see.

    I am a very patient person. I enjoy having other people around. We have hosted students from A.F.S when our children were younger and still keep in touch now. Looking forward to meeting new people who may be able to help us out to.

    I am English but have lived in France for 25 years, I know the area well and there would be opportunities to visit the landing beaches of Normandy and catch up on the history of the area. Normandy is known for it's cheeses, apples, cider and calvados. I enjoy cooking and love to share ideas on this and languages and customs of other cultures. I like to make people feel welcome and I am happy for them to join in with what is going on if they so wish.
