Lieven and Agnes, a Belgian-Dutch couple (age 70 and 60) are looking for 1 or 2 workawayers for help in the garden and in the house and from time to time dog and housesitting.
We offer a place for reflection and personal enrichment near to nature and far away from town noise and light.

We speak Dutch, French, English, German and Spanish.
We live on a 17th century authentic farm in the peaceful Normandy collines countryside where we run a holiday gîte
The location and region (pays d'Auge) are not so far from the seaside. The rich history of Normandy is always nearby.
We are cultureminded : Agnes is a classical singer and Lieven is a sculptor-painter. Of course if we have the opportunity we would like you could go with us to concerts, musea, expositions, cultural events ....,
We don't smoke and don't eat meat, fish occasionally.

Of course we offer you all the food you need during your stay and if we are at home we invite you to share our evening meals. WIFI and internetconnection is available.
