  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am a New Zealander ,who's lived in France for 20 years,and I love it.
    I'm on my own so it would be great to have help with maintenance..
    There is good local transport to nearby villages or the coast.
    The property is in countryside with not much night life,although it perks up in the summer months,so would prefer workawayer's who are happy with that.

    The medieval villages of Salernes and Villecroze are 2 kms away where there are restaurants and markets

    I have many projects from time to time,so it's always good to check with me.

    Two dogs,who love going for walks,and three very affectionate cats.
    In September I'd be happy with just one person coming to help or a couple.

    All the information on the property is on my website which I will forward to you when you apply.
