    Description

    Hello to you. We are all still living in troubled times. Covid 19 has wreaked havoc in almost every aspect of life. The French Government have issued guidelines on how we are now to live our lives. Indeed Governments worldwide have done the same.

    It is unfortunate that as the time of writing, Workaway do not seem (we could be wrong) to have acknowledged this on their site.

    Namaste.

    Honest answer, we don't know. I can say that we ask for help when we need it, and that we hope whoever comes to us, has a great time. We believe they do, as we have some great reviews...

    Help

    We are looking for someone who has experience with Lime Wash. We have a small outbuilding that we want all the wall treating with it. There is other work involved along with that task, basically lifting and shifting, and some tidying too.

    Experience is required, as we have never worked with Lime Wash, so no need to apply if you’re looking to us to provide the skills.

    it isn’t expected that this work will extend anything over a maximum of two weeks.

    If you can help us , we invite you to write to us, and please, do tell us more about yourself and importantly, your experience. Note, we do not use any sort of ageist policy. Young or old, if you have the experience and can do the work, we are most happy to host you.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation will be in a private double room, with en-suite facilities. You will be living and eating as part of our family. Food will be plentiful, and varied, and meals will be taken with us. We enjoy many different cuisines, with Indian curries being a (Saturday night) speciality. Check out our helpers comments, we have nothing but very satisfied eaters... It will be greatly appreciated if you would join in with the clearing up and washing after meals. Would you have any special dietary or otherwise requirements? Please inform us right away...

    Actual helping hours will be flexible, but we expect 25 hours (per person) per week.

    Internet access is available but very slow indeed. One of the joys/drawbacks of living right out in the countryside...

    Non-smoker is preferred (but not essential). Because of certain health aspects, both Kath and myself have to limit alcohol to a glass or maybe two at weekends. It will be expected that any helper(s) will respect that.

    Please note, we can take a MAXIMUM of two helpers at any one time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Poitiers is just over an hour's drive away, with Tours, La Rochelle and Nantes being about 90 minutes away . May we remind potential helpers that it really is a very quiet area where we live.
