We are a mature married couple and moved to France nearly three years ago and have a large house and garden that needs general renovation and tree, shrub ect removal to bring the garden back to beauty. The project is taking longer than expected!
We live in a small village and are the only british family here to our knowledge so plenty of opportunity to practice French. There are plenty of interesting Bastide towns etc in the near vicinity to visit.
Help required to chop fallen trees into log sizes pieces and move to woodshed that needs to be rebuilt after the roof blew off ! Ability to use a strimmer and possibly a chain saw. A tree surgeon would be in heaven here. Small renovation building jobs inside and outside the house, more than DIY level but not specialist building standard, carpentry skills would be useful. General garden tasks as everything grows faster than we can clear it!
English and a little French
We have 2 gites the could be left available where you can fend for yourself and be a little independent or a double room in the main house.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
More than two
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
