  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple ,British ,approaching retirement -we hope!
    We both worked in sport and education as consultants in UK and worldwide. Our business interests included retail, design and service industries.
    Now we have a delightful location in SW France which is now too big for our needs and we are planning to downsize, Still active, outgoing and enthusiastic by nature we enjoy sharing our knowledge of the area with our visitors.
    We are now preparing our plans for 2019 and are keen to hear from you especially if you are available in March/April/May when we undertake the annual maintenance.We also have need of help during the summer months with the gardens.
    We only accept couples as helpers and advise everyone that your own transport is a necessity given our rural location.

    What else ...

    Hello helpers,
    Having travelled world wide in work and play we settled in a delightful part of SW France.
    After over twenty years the renovation projects are complete and we find we now need assistance to keep our property in good order!

    We have space, like meeting people and would appreciate some company just doing the chores.
    If you would like to explore this interesting region and experience life in rural France and have time to spare please get in touch! Anytime from mid April through to September is good for us.

    Naturally we will feed and accommodate you while you work with us.Any age group is considered although,a couple is preferred. Our only advice is you should have your own transport to get the best of what is on the doorstep. Pre history sites, caves, chateaux, vineyards, medieval villages and all the festivals, markets and events of summer abound. It is a special place.
