  • Description


    I am looking for enthusiastic, helpful people to stay with me in my large house in a village in SW France (named Tillac). I have 2 very friendly young dogs, one cat and a very large garden.
    I also have young grand-children who visit me often.

    Music is my passion and I organise regular music-concerts in the summer months which keeps me very busy. I need help in my garden with lawnmowing, weeding and general maintenance, and in the house with house work; maintenance and painting. The dogs also like to go for a walk around the scenic village.

    Tillac is a small, quiet village but the local community is very friendly and there are opportunities to be part of life in a French village. Many of my friends also host workaway visitors so there is a good network of "workawayers" in Tillac and surrounding villages and there may be opportunities to get together with other workawayers for dinners, movie nights, bike rides etc. The area has regular food markets and other activities; Tillac has a small grocery shop, butcher and restaurant- all a 2 minute walk from the house.
