  • Description

    Description

    We are a bilingual team - Veronique is French and Peter is American - sharing our time between France and US. We enjoy spending our summer in Veronique’s old family home in the Southwest of France, 20 kms from the historical town of La Rochelle.
    We have already a few volunteers for the summer but we can still receive a couple or a single woman, for 10 days from August 5 to 15. You must be confortable helping with projects around the house and garden - such as organizing, cleaning, weeding, watering, making jams, taking care of our chickens and whatever summer projects one has to do in an old house surrounded by a large garden during the summer. We will work together in the morning so you will have the afternoons and evenings to explore our beautiful region with us or on your own.

    We live in a beautiful region rich in history and many great places to discover. People come from very far away to visit this region.
