We are Brits living in the beautiful Bretagne region of France, we run a fishing / gite business.
My husband and myself are young 60's!
Due to my husband's continued ill health we are unable to maintain the large gardens/grounds around the lakes without some help. Our business is seasonal running from April through to end of October then its time to tidy the grounds trim trees, shrubs hedges etc....
We live in a large house with our Labrador and cat. Its a easy going household, you would get nice food three meals a day wine or beer with your evening meal.
