Hello, I am Steve, I am retired, English, french speaker; My wife Ann speaks Norwegian we have this Large French Farmhouse with 4+ acres of land, part used by sheep/horses. Remainder set to lawn & courtyard gardens. At present, fairly overgrown, but nothing requiring heavy manual labour. I absolutely need help with gardens/Pond/trees. Since I am still renovating the house if you have a skill ie plumbing/electrics/plasterboarding/plastering:decorating and want to have a go - feel free, I promise I won't laugh, just be grateful for the effort. Car (old but reliable) available if you have a full relevant licence and are a confident and capable driver. We are approx 30 mins from Mont St.Michel and St.Malo.
English owners, 13+ years into General Renovations.
