    Help

    For April, May and June, we have hard work to do: fence installation and fixing, manure shovelling, garden work. We would like to host someone who is willing for hard work.

    Besides that, we would be also interested with help in house including cooking, housekeeping and renovations. However, the tasks outside are priority.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you're someone who likes to work outside, do physical work, all that in a beautiful landscape, this opportunity is for you. We both work elsewhere during week days but we're home every nights and weekends. We like a lot to cultural sharing.

    Sawyerville is 30 minutes drive from Sherbrooke and Mont-Mégantic, 2 hours from Montréal and 2,5 hours from Québec city. It is in Eastern Township close to US border and in Appalaches mountains.

    Québec city offers European charm and culture, fully preserving its francophone culture, making it a popular tourist destination.
