Hi! I'm a vegetarian living in an old house full of books surrounded by old trees. I enjoy helpers who enjoy nature and reading. Piano and a cat will also be your companions.
As well as hosting helpers for short periods of time, I would welcome someone to stay for a longer period over the Irish winter. This would be especially suitable if you are looking for quiet time to write, do art or music, or reflect on the next phase of your life, while contributing around 20 hours of help a week.

Help in the house
I'm very willing to help with language learning (English, French, Esperanto). Speakers of all three languages are regularly passing though.
I have a large library of all sorts of books, fiction, environmental studies, biographies, etc.
For families there are adventure trails, trees to climb, places for hide-and-seek and running around, library includes many books for children which I regularly review.
There are log fires, musical instruments and various board games.
Some useful skills are general gardening - digging, weeding, chain sawing, pruning trees, repairs to old buildings.
