  • Description


    Hi, I'm Marie, I'm 66, I live in an old renovated farm in the Monts du Lyonnais (50km far from Lyon), which is reachable easily by bus.
    I need some help to work in the garden and make some general maintenance .

    Work is pretty flexible, around 4 hours per day and free week-end.
    I cook 3 rich and good meals a day, mostly organic. It could be vegeterian if needed.
    Housing is in my house, in individual room (couples in double bed room), with a private bathroom.
    Internet access.
    I have been doing ceramic and potery for about 15 years and I would be glad to share this passion with you !

    Bonjour, je m'appelle Marie, j'ai 66 ans et j'habite dans une grande ferme rénovée dans les Monts du Lyonnais (50km de Lyon), accessible facilement en bus.
    J'ai besoin d'aide pour travailler au jardin et faire un peu de bricolage dans la maison.

    Le travail demandé est flexible, environ 4 heures par jour et les week-ends libres.
    J'offre 3 bons repas par jour, principalement bio cuisinés avec soin (végétariens ou non).
    L'hébergement est dans la maison, en chambre individuelle (couples dans chambre double) avec une salle de bain à l'étage.
    Accès internet.
    Je fais de la poterie depuis 15 ans et je partage volontiers cette passion !
