    We are Sue and Paul and we live on our renovated home in France, an old farmhouse with barns and large garden. We have 2 sheep, 2 Shetland ponies (tescued), chickens, 2 barn cats (rescued)and 2 dogs: Jack the Border Terrier and Monty the Australian Berger/Griffon cross (rescue).

    We are looking for people with initiative to help with maintenance jobs around the house and land. There is always lots to do and a wide variety of jobs to suit most capabilities.

    Outdoor jobs:
    - Re-fencing sheep field - Priority
    - Help with animal care, feeding, cleaning and exercising.
    - landscaping (heavy work)
    - clearing garden for raised beds
    - clearing dead trees, chipping branches
    - clearing brambles
    - Cutting trees down

    Indoor jobs:
    - preparing and painting windows/shutters/doors/furniture/gates
    - September - sorting books and setting up for one of our annual Charity Book Fairs.

    The house is in hamlet about 4.5km from two towns. There are bikes available to use.

    Very large lake nearby - Lac de Vassiviere.

    Internet access is good and unlimited.

    The accommodation is a fully equipped, comfortable apartment attached to the house, suitable for 1 person or a couple.
    There are bedrooms in the main house.

    Stay could be extended either way if needed or to help with work.

    We live in small, friendly hamlet and have both English and French friends. We play boules regularly, in the village, with our French and English neighbours. We enjoy board games and I enjoy various crafts but my passion is gardening and we are members of a local Gardening Club.

  • Arbeit


    Outdoor work: Renewing the fencing and posts around the sheep/hirse field is our priority this autumn/winter but other jobs include gardening; landscaping; fencing; maintenance; clearing; digging; setting up water collection system (funds allowing) etc. etc.

    I love gardening and am trying to use more if our land for growing but as I work as a carer the garden tends to get left until last and is definitely in need of some tlc.

    Indoor/Other work: painting shutters/ doors/windows, sorting/prep for Charity Book Fair.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    Our local town of Eymoutiers is a lively place with weekly markets, and a definite "hippy" vibe.

    We will provide 3 meals a day and accommodation in return
    Accommodation is of a very good standard. We have unlimited wifi, however reception can be variable in very bad weather and has to be disconnected if it's stormy.

    We are British but do mix with our French neighbours in the area so there will be some opportunities for improving your French.
    Please feel free to ask any questions with no obligation.

    I'm not very good at the selling of this but your help would be appreciated and you would get a real idea of living in rural France.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this listing.
