    Description

    Hello Workawayers,

    I am a single women of 63 years young. I used to work with handicapped people(fysical and/or mentally handicapped). Now I live in France where I have two 200 year old houses in a beautifull area. I am trying to make the two houses as much off grid as is possible. I planned to make a vacancy appartment for handicapped people. I have a garden for vegetables and flowers for the bees..
    I give massages from when I was 18 years old, love gardening, herbs, nature, animals and people.
    I have two grown up daughters(34 and 36), one grandson(2.5) and one granddaughter( 1,5 month) who live and work in the Netherlands.
    I have one dog, half beauceron-sheperd of 5 year, called Luca. I have one cat; Poena.

    I am looking for tecnically skilled people with experiencewith a woodheather warming system for in the house and experiences with plumming for the next two months. That would be very nice. But trustfull, handy, nice people who can help me for a longer period are still welcome. Because I broke my neck in august 2015 I cannot do all the things which needed to be done. I like to update my French grammar too. There is a winterhard caravan in the garden where you can stay, or in a room in the house if you want.
    Greetings Aletta

    I would like some nice company who can help with the house where I am finishing a Serre, making a wamth system with a wrmwater woodstove and planned replacing the bathroom. I can use some help with my vegetable garden too.

    Update 11-04-2018
    Since half March I live permanent (dans ma maison) en France. I am looking for nice, honest, handy and positive people who can help me with restarting my vegetable garden, help me to cover the walls with clay inside, maybe learn me some more and better French(grammar). In exchange I can teach you some basic massage, show you the most beautifull places in this area, you can come with me to swimm every afternoon in the beautifull lake with silky water, enjoy my meals prepared with love out of my own vegetables, vegetarian if wanted. You can stay in the caravan in the garden and enjoy the beautifull surrounding and the sound of the river. Internetconexxion is ok but you cannot receive messages or phone at your mobile. There is a fixed line available.
    Warm welcome for a short or longer period,
    Greetings Aletta

    There is a winterhard caravan near the house, for two persons, but it is also possible to stay in the house or in a tent.
    I have a dry toilet and running cold water and warm water(from a swell source). there is a bath and a shower, still a bit primitif but nice. There is internet and a fixed telephoneline but mobile phones are not easy to use.
