  • Description


    My husband and I live in rural France with farming all around. We have lived here for almost 5 years bringing with us all the 2 horses and 3 ponies, one of the ponies sadly passed away last year. We also have 2 very friendly dogs, a Border Collie and the a Miniature American Shepherd and four cats. Oh and I must not forget Fred the goldfish.
    I run my own Gite business in France and my husband has his own business in England so is away a lot of the time, having alternate weeks at home.
    You would have your own bedroom and bathroom facilities but I would like someone who is willing to help around the yard with the horses and not want to shut themselves away or spend all their time on their phones.
    Our first language is English but do speak French but not fluently. We live 10kms from a small town with amenities such as cinema, swimming pool, supermarket, shops, banks, pharmacy.
    As I am a very outdoors person then this will only suit someone who also enjoy the great outdoors, to riding and also carriage driving. If you’ve never tried I’m willing to show you how with my lovely sweet and naughty Welsh A pony.
    I would like someone who is willing to help in every aspect, including housework, cooking meals and shopping.
