  • Description


    We are a retired British couple , who have been living here in normandy France for 15 year and have a rescue dog that we found running through the countryside who has been a family member now for over 9 years
    Our home is a converted barn sat within an acre of garden it has mature trees , bushes, bamboo which harbours an enormous amount of birdlife
    The house is well situated central to the large and well known market town of St.. Hilaire du harcouet ( not sure if spelling is correct ) , Ducey, St james and Avranches, the world heritage site of Le Mont st. Michel is a only 15 kilometres away
    We now need help with our garden as it’s decided it wants to resemble a jungle so if you would like to come and help us with gardening , some light DIY and maybe some housework you’d be made really welcome , have a comfortable bed, good home cooking and taken out and about as and when we go
