Hi, my name is Noémie and I am 38 years old. I live in the Loire valley with my husband, my 2 children, my dog, 3 horses, cat, chickens ... in a lovely property that we all re-built a few years ago. We have some projects that might interest you such as : gardening, construction works, training our horses. We would love to host english speaking people so that our children get used to this language.
Erwan works for the French Society for the Protection of birds and he breeds sheep. After 11 years working for a trust enhancing the river Loire, I am developing a new project, which is a horse drawn gipsy caravan going on events to provide educational activities on nature, environment, local food, agriculture etc...
We have a small independent house, with a double bed, shower, ans dry toilets. It's not a palace but it's very comfortable! Meals will be taken with us at home.
Erwan and I are both working in environmental and cultural trusts and we love sharing our passions and knowledge with others. The Loire Valley is an amazing place, with the river Loire, all its castles and properties.
my main projects are :
- to finish the works on the small house as we want it to transform it as a guest house (mainly masonry)
- to take care my animals
- to help me with everyday duties
In winter this is mainly building/ taking care of our animals
In spring summer there is a lot of gipsy caravan trips (it means that we sometimes sleep in the caravan or in tents), I need help for these events, taking care of the horses, and when we are at home : gardening and building.
Days are never the same, I can't tell you exactly what will be your day ... We therefore need someone flexible!
If you are a handy man/woman, and you like horses, this is THE PLACE TO BE :)
