    Help

    All kinds of help required with the projects here, tell us what you can do I'm sure there will be something for you here. Looking for lots of enthusiasm and genuine desire to help others. Generally would look for 5 days in a week and open to long stays for those that fit and feel happy here. Examples include help to develop the kitchen garden, preferably biodynamic or along those lines; quite a few building and woodwork projects if you are good with your hands - if you have your own tools even better ! Help with the horses, feeding, care and riding if you have relevant level and own insurance, our horses are mostly retired racehorses and not suitable for beginners - we have an interesting charity involving former racehorses used in human therapy (Equine Assisted Therapy) so anyone good with computers / web design and blogging will be an amazing help with this - it has very international scope so would be good for CV's.

    *️*️Calling all artists and writers .....

    There is a large space in the Pressoir that would be an ideal studio for artists in the summer months and the whole place is very well suited to artists and writers looking for a peaceful, inspiring retreat. Special arrangement for retreats if you wish to take your own house on the site and use the Pressoir as your summer studio.

    French is a bonus but we are a bilingual family so it is not essential (though not much english spoken locally in the countryside). Food is a big part of life here with so many great local products - cuisine from around the world would be amazing if you like cooking or want to try your hand at french country dishes !

    Various options, in the farmhouse, other house, if clients not booked in (to discuss), camping (bring your own camping car or tent or let us know and we can provide tent and bedding etc. ) it depends on time of stay and availability (and what you prefer !). Great locally sourced food ! Eat with the family and extended family of visitors here.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Very close to Haras du Pin and many attractions that lower Normandy has to offer. Own transport would be a good idea - some bikes here but remember this is rather rural ...not a walk to a village type spot ;)
