Max and I live together here in our old farmhouse with Ted and Tiggy, two kind, large dogs, several cats and our French cock and his ladies. We live a simple life but our garden and potager (veg patch)is in desperate need of help! WE love the peace and quiet of this little piece of French heaven and having the swimming pool is a wonderful bonus (if you like swimming!)
Help around the house
We live in beautiful rural France - far from the Madding Crowd! We are on the border between the Deux-Sevres and the Vendée. Lovely market towns close by and La Rochelle and the Île de Ré an hour and 15mins away by car.
Second Sunniest Area of France - with at least 2,600 hours of sunshine a year, the department of Deux Sevres, along with neighbouring Vendée, is second only to the South of France as the sunniest area of France.
Walking, cycling, fishing all close by and the Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) with its beautiful canals is 40 minutes away where you can explore the waterways by boat.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Looking for help taming our jungle of a garden and getting the veg patch back! Hedge trimming, lawn mowing, weeding and planting. Help in the house with general cleaning and some decorating (painting) would be great! We have two large dogs who are 9 years old and several cats so animal lovers required - and one French cock called Beyoncé with his two ladies!
2 Double rooms, shared bathroom - lovely views and setting and swimming pool. Breakfast, lunch and supper provided.
