    Description

    Hi we are a couple and live in a smallholding in the heart of the Dordogne with our 4 dogs and 4 horses. We moved here mid 2014 and have lots of projects planned.

    We are looking for someone to come and help on our smallholding, we have lots of renovation work underway, but primarily want someone to help with our 4 horses and 4 dogs. No horse experience necessary as they are all very easy to do.

    I have recently had an operation and unable to do any lifting/carrying so need an extra pair of hands when my partner is at work. But also looking for someone longer term who can help with projects here - building a Therapy retreat, creating gardens, landscaping etc.

    Plenty of free time for sightseeing. We live on the edge of forestry with endless trails for walking/cycling/riding.

    We are very rural not near public transport so own transport would be recommended.

    Someone with easy going nature, just willing to muck in when needed and just relax when not!

    You will have your own private space in a converted apartment, internet access available.

    Help

    We are looking for someone to come and join our family and help with jobs around our 6 hectare smallholding. Including mucking out horses and bits and bobs around the smallholding.

    If you are handy with the hammer some help with renovation work - Just bring a "go to it" attitude, positive outlook on life and willingness to get stuck in and have some fun and we can supply food, accommodation and good company.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Beautiful part of the Dordogne, near Belves, Montpazier and Beaumont. Not on any bus routes so own transport would be helpful. Can supply bikes but if you love walking there are some amazing trails right from the doorstep. If you are a horse rider then you can come out on trail rides with us.
