Hi Workaways...we have a 30 acre farm in the North Poitou Charente..both myself and husband are early retirees and need general help to keep the farm tidy...Gardening..renovation and help with the animals..a Warm welcome awaits , good home cooked food in a seperate double bedroomed appartement..Ideally suits a couple..Start date March the 9th no finish date.
DIY and building projects
We offer a chance to live a French country life.To benefit from living in the Countryside alongside our animals..We are so lucky to have 5 equines 2 horses 2 ponies and a very special Baudet du Poitou French Donkey...we have a house cow..2 sheep and a few chickens.Our pets are a crazy young boxer dog called Otis and 2 cats...We live opposie an ancient Chateau that has recently been awarded crowd funding to aid it's restoration..
My husband Stuart and I Julie..require help around our farm and home..we are both early retirees , sadly we both have a few health problems that are preventing us from keeping the farm , house and gardens in well kept presentation..We would need help to generally tidy the gardens including weedng hedge cuttung , grass cutting. The farm needs buildings cleaning out , general help to do small renovations such as painting , replacing the chicken house roof , trips to and from the local rubbish dump and help if required with the animals.Normally the animals dont require anything other than watering..They are all retired , but of course the horses love a good brush if you are willing.
A double bedroom appartment with lounge. kitchen and shower room..
My ideal...as the house offers separate accomodation for our workaways..Is for yourselves to make breakfast , a snack for lunch and then to join us in the evenings for good home made family dinners..All provided for and a with the option of choices for yourselves on what you prefer to eat...Having been a home cook for nearly 30 years I can accomodate food for all tastes...
We are withtin an hour of the Puy du Fou , the beaches of the Vendee..half an hour of the BioParc Doue La Fontaine..Saumur..and of course our beautiful town of Argentonnay..
