  • Description


    ** looking for a couple who can come asap**

    Hello, I’m Etienne and I am a 37 year old working father with 2 daughters ( 9 and 6 years old) and 3 dogs.
    I live on a countryside property which sits on 2 hectares of land in the rural countryside just outside Condom in Gascony, south west France.
    As I have my own business I’m always quite busy.
    I have shared custody for my kids, so they are not full time with me.
    I work hard and make long days so I really could use all the help I can.
    It would be great to find a couple who is willing to do a longer stay.

    People travelling in their camper van are more then welcome!

    *** I do not require any help from Workaway for my business.**

    I would prefer to have a handy indépendant couple who can help to maintain my property, run my household and help me with organise my property.
    The projects can involve some renovations to improve the property.. living in the country dude there is always room for improvement.
    Setting up fencing for my dogs for example.

    But also maintain the property, my land and
    My house, which involves cleaning, cooking and several other DIY jobs.
    I would love to learn to speak better English.
    My kids only speak French but hope they will pick up other languages on the way.
    I am very open minded and would love to learn as much as possible and teach you everything I can.
