  • Description


    My name is Tara and I have lived in France since 2004 with my husband, Gary and our 2 children , Hannah and Katie. We have been renovating our property since then and welcome tourists in some gites we have on site. We grow some vegetables and raise chickens for eggs, so have nice meals and home made cakes!! We live a quiet life and enjoy living in this region of France.
    We are looking for non skilled volunteers or skilled paid workers to help with roofing, guttering, painting and general maintenance.
