    We (Charlotte & Kévin) are a 30 years old couple with a 1 year old baby girl (Amélia), we used to travel sometimes (before Covid and before our baby girl).
    We recently bought a house and there are a lot stuff to do : weeding, hedge trimming, building a chicken house... We started to restore our bedroom ourself and there also are a lot of upcoming projects (paint the ground-floor and bedrooms, sand and glaze the floor, create a new bathroom...)

  • Help


    Ideally, we are looking for someone who can handle the hedge trimmer or the chain saw. Someone who already have experiences in gardening and/or house renovation.
    We have my father help who knows all these stuff, but we need more help especially with the outside which was almost let as it was.
    We have a robot that cuts the grass, so you won't be assigned to this task :-)

  • Accommodation


    You will be staying in your own house, maybe you will share it with some friends or family, but there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in this tiny house so it won't be an issue.

    We will provide food for every meal : breakfast, lunch and dinner all days (even if it's a day off). I will cook but if the workawayer wants to share his recipes, it would be a pleasure (we will buy what he needs)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in the countryside near Caen and close to the D-Day landing beaches. Commodities are reachable by bike but owning a car is more appropriate here (we can borrow a bike though). The place is quiet in the middle of land fields. We like to share food (I'm a good cooker says my boyfriend) and sometimes a bottle of wine ;-)
    We are smokers but we smoke only outside of the house (even in winter)
