  • Description


    I'm a 50 years young man and I moved to France, Puy de Dome departement, 7 years ago. I love to cook and the plan is to start cookery courses when the house is finished. At the moment there are 2 guest rooms for the Chambre et table d'hôtes. The project I need help with is to maintain a big potager, (vegitables garden) the garden, help with clients and renovation works on the house.

    The farm house is an old building (before 1750) which is being renovated by my self. Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of France, a natural rural environment between mountains, forest and greenlands, 50 km south-east of Clermont-Ferrand.

    I'm a friendly, open minded, creative person who likes to meet people, exchange knowledge, learn from one another and have a good laugh.

    Hope to see you soon.

  • Help


    I can always use help with the large potager (vegitables garden) which needs to be extended and maintained. The garden needs to be maintained, so mowing the weeds and grass. In Autumn we go into the forest for cutting trees (and collecting mushrooms) and the wood needs to be chopped and stacked. Renovation works on the house and barn, masonnary works, flooring, electrics, building steps in garden, a chicken house etc.
