    Description

    Where to start? So many different things going on here, something for most people (see below).......
    I live in beautiful Normandy (town of Gacé) with my daughter Jasmine who is 8. We both speak English and French.
    I have a busy schedule and need help with different aspects of life!!! I am looking for "helpers" who are willing to fit in with day to day "family life" as well as helping out.

    1 - I work from home and from an office helping English people with settling into France, so I need some help at home while I work. This is mainly cleaning, cooking, tidying and babysitting. I have also just bought my house so have some "renovation" projects on going at the moment.

    2- My mum lives a 2min walk away in an old school. She runs a dog grooming salon. The work here is mainly outdoors. Gardening, weeding, general yard work but also a small amount of indoor jobs.

    Your help will depend on what you enjoy (and are good at) but also our plans and of course the weather.

    I am looking for volunteers to help for a 4 week minimum stay through the summer but will consider shorter stays when appropriate.

    I ask for 25h / week + help at mealtimes.

    In return for your help, we supply accommodation, all your food, language help and various tours of the area.

    Please email me for a whole load more info.
    We have met some great people through Workaway and hope this will continue in 2020!!
    A bientôt,

    Accommodation

    The accommodation is at my house or at my mum's.
    We are in town but still quite rural with lots of beautiful walks and cycle tracks on the doorstep.
    We can lend you bikes if you wish as the local area is perfect for cycling.
    We will take you out with us when possible and if you need a lift to the bus station no problem. We supply all your basic food. We are all Vegetarians / vegans so all the meals provided will be veggie. I have lots of cookbooks I can lend you if you need ideas!
