  • Description


    **Looking for help for August

    You would be staying in our family home with your own room. Our helpers are a part of the family life and welcome to join us when we go out.

    We have 3 dogs, 4 cats and 4 hens, all rescued. I am vegan so this is a meat-free household.

    We live in a small village, a short drive from the sea, we have a beautiful lake and the river 5 minutes walk from the house and we are very close to the mountains for anyone that likes walking.

    I am very easygoing, love music, good sense of humour. I am English, but also speak French.

    The help is flexible, mainly walking dogs and helping around the house and garden.

    Our house is small, but happy and full of animals. Please do not consider a stay with us if you are not an animal lover and not used to living with animals. I try to keep the house as clean as possible, but with all the animals there is an infinite supply of pet hair ;-)

    Usual stay 1-2 weeks.

    The most important thing is walking the dogs and feeding the animals. We live next to a beautiful lake and the mountains are not far so some beautiful walks 😊

  • Accommodation


    Bedroom with double bed in our small house.
    We are not a farm, but a small house in a small village in the countryside.
    I offer 3 meals per day, mainly vegan. We do have fresh eggs from our rescue hens.

    I can take 2 people, but prefer one for financial reasons and I don’t really have enough work for 2 people.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lots to see & do in the area, especially for lovers of the outdoors and nature. We are 10 minutes by car from Spain and 20 minutes to the sea.

    **This year I have had a lot of helpers messing me about and canceling at the last minute. I understand if there is a genuine reason and you have no choice, but please understand if I reserve dates for you I am counting on you and it causes me problems if you do not respect our agreement. If I say I have reserved dates for you I will respect my side of the agreement, I ask that you do the same. Thank you :-)
