    Description

    My name is Carole and I have a Bed & Breakfast here in Verchères, one of Québec's nicest villages. The house itself was built in 1838 and has been completely restored in 2004. Now it needs some refreshing and this summer is when it needs to get done! If you like old houses with a special ''je ne sais quoi'' and beautiful little villages and Verchères are waiting for you!

    Je suis une femme mature, seule; Audrey, ma fille vit avec moi. Audrey est végétalienne et moi végétarienne; notre passion à toute les deux est la spiritualité et la croissance personnelle. J'aime travailler de mes mains et j'ai fait la restauration de ma maison de mes mains. Dix ans plus tard, j'ai besoin d'aide pour l'entretenir.

    I need someone who is experienced with external house painting, wood patio building, tile layout and other house maintenance skills. These projects are in process and I need someone who is available for at least 3-5 days at a time. Other interested volunteers are welcomed to help me with my flower beds.

    J'ai besoin d'une personne expérimentée avec le travail manuel du bois (construction de patio, peinture, utilisation de petits outils de menuiserie, etc.) Ma maison a besoin d'être repeinte au complet et je dois refaire un nouveau patio de bois dans le jardin au niveau du sol.

    J'ai également des plates bandes de fleurs et arbustes qui ont besoin d'être refaite;

    What else ...

    We are 30 minutes away from Montréal by car or by bus. There is a bus that leaves from the Longueuil terminus every hour. Here at the B&B we receive tourists all year round as there are several tourist attractions in the area: a vineyard, a golf course, a cycling path along the St-Lawrence river, and other hidden treasures of the area. A little village with tranquility, kind and warm hearted people, and a beautiful view on the water. Come see the historic buildings and enjoy some of the outdoor family events held here (music festivals, marathons, cycling, family events, etc). We hope to see you soon!

    Gîte de La Madelon est situé sur une petite rue tranquille du vieux village. Verchères est situé à environ 30 minutes de Montréal soit par auto ou autobus. Plusieurs activités sont disponibles dans les environs: vignoble et jardin horticole à visiter, rendonnée en kayak sur le fleuve et dans les îles face à Verchères, golf, visite historique, etc.
