We are looking for a couple who like to combine Holiday and labour in the luxury of our estate. End of september until end of oktober. Besides enjoying the luxury, treat the house as it was yours, you need to mow at least ones a week (4 hours) and your major project is to sand and paint all shutters! We will be there to make you known with the house and get to know each other. Then we are off to Holland due to the arrival of a grandchild. The other reason is that I get a new hip and cannot do heavy work for 3 months.
Of course the use of house, pool and sauna is for free. If you are not coming by car, an old Renault 25 is available. We like to clearly discuss the painting job and agree on a correct extra fee for the labour.
Help in the house
If you are able to speak French, involvement in our local friends group isnt a problem. There are also a lot of English that live over here. no problem to introduce. as we are a a well integrated couple here in the village, you can expect a very open
and welcoming attitude from everybody around us and our house.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Your competenties should be accuratesse, able to managing a property, know how to drive a mower and especialy how to prepare and paint wood. (outside shutters). So you will be on your own, we will be together at the beginning and the end, you need to cook for Yourself and you have to finish the job before you leave. Serious reactions with a good feeling for this project and with a reasonable view concerning the extra fee, will get the website address of the estate. as soon we are in contact we will send you the pictures of the shutters and the condition they are in! (they where done in 2015 and a part again in 2017. (lots of sun exposure) It can be handy if you can both work with wood and paint!
Big mansion being used for holidayhome and a small extra house as being our residence when the house isnt let! it means you have all the luxury we and our rentals have to.
I cannot bring and/or describe a project thats closer to holiday and work from and at home as this one!
