  • Description


    Looking for help in the next few weeks.
    I am a single lady with a mental age of a 40yrs old or less. I gave up the professional, madness of London & moved to this area permanently about 13 years ago. I have a very busy social life & have a large circle of friends both English & French. No children or pets but time still flies out here! I enjoy cooking & am famous for my Curries & indian food. I would like to have someone to help around the house , some DIY & with food preparation. Common sense & independent thought process is essential.

    I live in a lovely little village, the house is the Old Marie ( Old Town Hall) right in the centre & has been renovated to a high standard. The Bakery is just down the Road. The nearest Town is only 4km away & you can always jump on the School bus for a lift into Town. Great area for Cycling. The Village is located between Poitiers & La Rochelle Airports.
