  • Description


    We are a friendly couple, Peter is disabled but able to get around slowly. We both are keen to tidy up the garden here this year, which entails mowing and weeding tasks, and some strimming work.
    We have a garage which requires de-cluttered and tidying up.
    We have some internal painting work in bedroom and a wonderful project to transform a garden shed into a great relaxing space, its a very rewarding project for someone who is artistic to achieve something really special in a small space.
    As we are pensioners we have many small jobs and some perhaps more ambitious we would like to achieve with help.... Pointing we have in abundance for those who enjoy it.

    We both enjoy good food and I cook main meal every day with roast on Sundays . I'm not skilled in vegan food however, but happy to let you cater for yourself if required. If you like to cook, would welcome the break and happy for you to cook a meal... We are an easy going household . It is rural here but not isolated and we are surrounded by lovely countryside. near some beautiful lakes just a short ride away... We cannot offer transport to airports but can collect from Rail stations (Ruffec 16) Savigne 79 We have 2 bikes here also for use if you wish them.

    We have 2 dogs in residence , one small terrier and one German Shepherd rescue boy aged 5.5 yrs . Due to his past history he suffers with separation anxiety so he isnt keen to go walking away from home , but he is getting better , its just kindness, patience and time with rescue animals.. We share a bathroom here as only one in the cottage, but your own room provided with linen & towels provided. We do NOT expect more hours than those which are normal ! We are flexible to am or pm working and do not require work at weekends. We have internet facilities . Peter smokes an e-cigarette and we enjoy a glass of wine and like to laugh a lot. We look forward to hosting anyone happy to visit us this year.
    We prefer that you are happy to work without supervision , at a time that suits yourself.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are situated quietly in a semi rural situation surrounded by beautiful countryside. Great for walking and exploring with lots of wild life. We have bikes here if enjoyed. Our commune is mainly of French nationals all of whom are elderly and friendly when you see them ! There are many beautiful villages around us to visit. Also a lovely lake area just down the road with small restaurant

  • Help


    Garden help mainly, Maybe some painting and bit of DIY inside and out. Dog walking if enjoyed.
    We have plenty of small jobs that need doing and Peter would like to sort out his garage space and needs help as he is disabled. Nothing here is really hard work, more practical and needs someone able to use their own common sense really. We have lots of pointing work to do here for anyone who is skilled in this area. Small shed also needs transforming into an Amazing space to chill in ! Great project for someone artistic.
