We are Jo and Nick, we are in our late forties We're from Northampton in England.
We have lived here in the south west of France since 2003, we have two grown-up children who no longer live here with us , We have three dogs, ( 1 German Shephard, 1 Alaskan malamute , 1 Collie Cross), two cats and a few chickens.
We have an ongoing project (like most people!) : renovating our farmhouse and we're looking for a helping hand ! There is always something to do ! A big bonus would be someone who is really handy in woodworking/carpentry as there are lots of small projects ie : doors to make, sanding , painting ,etc (Not essential though) There is also gardening, painting, decorating to do, the list goes on and on... We don't have masses of land here though, just a large garden, which is enough ! we ask for at least 5 hours work a day and also for you to get involved with the cooking in the evening , (either preparation or clearing up afterwards )
