  • Description


    For the period november i am looking for 2 or 3 people. There need to be done some plumming ( easy I can teach you) arranging furniture, some garden activitys and building a wooden shed.
    the Nievre, is still a covid low zone and my hamlet, 6 houses is very safe.

    So if you like to come over, write me!!
    I am a very active woman , architect/ builder with a lot of interests and a quit good cook. I have a holliday house with a big garden, and a tennis court in the French Burgundy. I always need some help in and around. The help depends of the season and of your competence. I have choosen for easy living in the country so your help is even easy and can be joined with French expieriences on the countryside.

    I speak Dutch, english, french, german and italian. Hope to see you for some days or weeks or...?

    The best is to come with 2 persons. Nice for you and better for the job. I'll offer you my big farmer house in a little village ( and tennis court) with only 5 other houses. There you can relax after work, make the fire in the big fire place and live a very simpel country life.
    You can cook your own meal, or better i can cook you the meals. Of course I pay you all the meals.
    In my house you have 4G wifi connection.

    I must tell you, you are in the middle of nowewhere. City Nevers is 40km, the nearby village is 7km. But you will have a unique expirience in this countryside with a lot of forest and lakes. I'ts up to you! You can read a lot, or write your story. Its may be interesting telling you that i already rebuilt a house with young people. One of them had ADHD. He could stop taking pills because of the healty structure was giving to him by living in the country
