  • Description


    Hello welcome to my home; my name is Annick, a women of 82 years old, with a good health, but, I have been teaching horseback riding over 25 years . . . as result a lot of pain in my spine.
    I lived in Montreal in the early 70. Since I came back in France, I ran a bed and breakfast at my house for 20 years and I enjoyed to speak with my guests In between.
    I travelled around in Far East, States and Mexico.I speak French, English, Spanish.My house is, now a little too big for me with the garden. And I need your help.

    I made a "phyto-treatment" with the plants, for all the waters we use in the house. And it works perfectly. A lot of animals are attracted by the water, birds, frogs, dragonflies, etc...

    I wish you help me with small renovations on my house and the garden who have 20 be-centennial olive trees, a small vegetable garden and a chicken coop with few hens and a beautiful rooster : Balthazar, a small dog Ganesha and two cats.

    My grandson, Bastien 32 years old, lives in my house but he is very busy with his job. Having a quite large house and the large garden I feel helpeless to do all the works needed for both places.
