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 10. 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!!
