    Helpers must be neat and clean and helpful in all activities including cooking and washing up and keep the house clean and tidy.
    Pleasant attitude and sociable .
    We work 5 hours each of the 5 days. some times we only work a few hours and we make it up another day you must be flexible... Out doors "type" of people and those who are fit and have done some physical work are more suitable . Most of the work is simple enough. the reviews we have had alot of fun helpers here.
    ..some renovating painting ...But its not hard.. Healthy and fit is probably also recommended......Bring some work shoes Work Gloves and old clothes as we get a bit dirty ....its winter so bring warm clothes


    Les aides doivent être propres et propres et utiles dans toutes les activités, y compris la cuisson et la vaisselle, et garder la maison propre et bien rangée.
      Attitude agréable et sociable.
    Nous travaillons 5 heures chacun des 5 jours. Parfois, nous ne travaillons que quelques heures et nous inventons un autre jour ... alors vous devez être flexible ... Dehors, des "types" de personnes et ceux qui sont en forme et qui ont fait un peu de travail physique sont plus adaptés. La plupart du travail est assez simple. ..lisez les critiques que nous avons eues de nombreux assistants amusants ici.
      ..quelques travaux de rénovation de la peinture ... Mais ce n'est pas difficile .. Sain et en forme est probablement aussi recommandé ...... Apportez des chaussures de travail Gants de travail et de vieux vêtements car nous devenons un peu sales .... son hiver alors apportez vêtements chauds
