  • Description


    Hello there,
    In the middle of the countryside, 3km away from the nearest town, and 25km to a larger one but in a big property.

    We are in a farm courtyard with 3 houses.
    One belong to some friends with their 2 daughters, an other one to my brother.
    And the other one belong to me where there are 3 appartments, my son and his girlfriend live in one of them. They also have a vegetable garden where work might be needed.
    And the 2 other appartments are sometimes rented sometimes not, that is where i need help sometimes The work could be cauting, painting, tile joint, maybe other stuff like even remodeling the terrace or building outdoors kitchen tools shelds,. Whatever kind of handicraft you might have will be helpfull.

    In the same property is the family castle managed by my nephew as bed and breakfast.
    We benefit of the large park (if not privatly rented) and woods that surround the all thing.

    It's a good place to lay back, visit a few castle in the area or the Brenne Natural Park (the land of a thousand ponds).

    It's difficult for me to tell you exactly what will be the work precisely because we always find new things as we go, but basically home improvment or outdoor construction, mainly with wood.

    If you have a driver licence and i see how you drive i can loan you my car if you want to go someplace.

    Your WEEKENDS are FREE of course.
