We are an english family living in france, on a farm with around 80 hectares. Currently building a new extension to the old house and ongoing major renovation works. Carpentry skills a big asset with a full joinery workshop on site and the chance to learn/enhance skills with a master craftsman. Masonry skills also a big asset!
The area is quiet, rural France, with 4 main towns about 40 minutes in all directions (Le Mans, Angers, Saumur and Tours) Nearest small towns are Le Lude and La Flèche . Lots of interesting places to go/see
We would welcome any helper into our home as part of the family, we have many friends, english and french. The kids (20 and 22) are fluent french speakers so we can help with french and english language. Er have 3 friendly house dogs so no pet allergies. Special diet can be catered for.
We are ready to host IMMEDIATELY
