    A beautiful farmhouse in rural Mayenne with just over 8 acres of garden, paddocks and a huge apple orchard. A great place if you are looking for tranquility and calm. Help around the garden and fields will be much appreciated as will some help with the horses. And if you know how to make cidre, please help yourself to the apples.,

    I work from home but am generally around in the mornings to chat whilst working with the horses or in the garden/fields.
