He has a small antique business in this busy tourist town and we now want to set up our new home as a small B and B for activity workshops, so we need help to decorate the house, tame the garden and set up the studio. which will be mainly used for Pottery/ceramics but we will also run art courses
    We have installed a swimming pool and our helpers will have use of this and will enjoy great meals cooked by myself
