    we have some big jobs happening this year 2019 new roof on house and cottage in march / april .which will mean plaster boarding and re fitting bathroom. pointing house and work on stables . field shelter and hopefully a kitchen change . so help is needed with all sorts of things: house cleaning, gardening and animal care.

    With all the animals there are always things to do outside: we have two hectares, mainly fields, so there would be some fencing, hedgerow maintenance, tree work, grass cutting, etc.to do. We have a stream that is on our land, as well a veggie patch and fruit trees.
    hay making ,

    You would be a part of the family, eating with us and going on outings with us (if you want),
    As to how long to stay with us- well, how long is a piece of string !?
    Also looking for someone that might comeback and do some house sitting and animal sitting .so we can have a holiday as a family.or just a long weekend .

    We are between Flers and Mayenne. There is a station at Flers, , Laval .
