Myself and my husband live on the borders of the Vienne/Charente with the nearest town being Confolens which each year hosts an international dance and music festival. We live in a rural community, next door to a French Riding Centre. We ourselves have horses and a donkey who are mostly old and rescued. We also have dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. and a pet pig. We would love help with all the animals and land management , quite heavy work so need to be strong.

I speak fairly good french, we have a good senses of humour, we love to learn about other cultures and could help you with animal knowledge..
Help with horses/ponies. Some strimming and land management and some general gardening. Cooking if you want to show us your national dish but not necessary.
We would offer either a double or twin room with sole use of bathroom facilities and an area for reading/relaxing/ television if you wanted to have some time quietly on your own. We can also offer riding, cycling and fishing.
The area we live in is quite quiet but with beautiful farming countryside. We have some great places to visit nearby e.g. , Vallee de Singes (Monkey Park), Velorail, the beautiful town of Confolens which every August has a world famous folk music/dance festival and we are only one hour away from Poitiers where there is Futuroscope and 45 minutes from Angouleme and Limoges. All three are wonderful towns. We also have some great rivers close by should you enjoy fishing/kayaking etc.
