  • Description


    We are a dutch family living on the countryside (on a farm) of France with our 3 kids (17, 5 and 18 months), 2 dogs, 4 cats and about 10 horses. We have an extra appartment (in another building) with a small bathroom, kitchen and bedroom, own terras and BBQ. All very simple and a lot need an update (is one of the things on the list!)
    We provide privacy though but ofcourse we will welcome WA's as part of the family, to enjoy food, the pool (when possible), the drinks, what so ever together. We are quite flexible :)

    Plenty of work in/around the house and the whole area.
    Our veggiegarden is in 2021 a complete failure because of lack of time, lucky we are with loads of neighbours and the markets to get fresh vegetables and fruits (our fruit trees doing good though).

    Better said, the whole outdoors is a 'mess', renovating the pool ( done), keeping up with the weeds (we prefer not using chemicals for that), so never ending story, what so ever. Besides that we do have an extra building that needs a lot of work and let's not forget the housekeeping (our favorite).

    We do live on a perfect spot in the countryside, with a wide view and on the edge of the forrest. Hunting season normally starts half of august, with bit of luck the best biologic meat again from september :)

    Richard works as an treesurgeon and if interested he would not mind to bring 1 or both of you to jobs, to see and help with his work.

  • Help


    Therefor we are rebuilding a house and ofcourse taking care of the kids and animals, some basic things are just not done or not in time.
    Cutting the grass, maintaining the pool, taking care of the garden but also giving some attention to the horses.

    So we would love somebody to help out with those kinds of things and if possible some work in the house as well. There are some bigger projects planned (like taking down some sheds and rebuilding them)
