  • Description

    Description

    Linda and I have lived in beautiful Central Brittany for nearly three years. We have both retired and live in a lovely rural location just 5 minutes outside the village.The views in every direction are wonderful. We need capable people to renevate a small outbuilding into a one bedroom unit, help in the garden and need the outside of the house painted. There are literally hundreds of beautiful beaches with golden sand and no crowds, wherever you go and the charming villages, harbours and history make this place well worth a visit.

    The outside of the small house needs painting with white masonry paint and window frames need sanding and painting. We have a good plot for a garden mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and flowers. There are two small areas where we would like ground cover dug out and tidied up, together with odd DIY jobs. Nothing strenuous or difficult, sadly I have a balance disability and much of the standard everyday work I now find very taxing.
