We have a 18th century farmhouse in Loir Valley surrounded by beautiful, typically French villages. We are English and French. We would like some help with gardening. The area around us is very beautiful with many walking and biking trails. We do have bikes available for you to explore and have just installed a pool. Le Mans and Tours are just 40 mins away.
In exchange for 20 hours per week Monday to Friday or, if you prefer to help a longer day for 4 days we will provide:- Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner plus tea and coffee with biscuits.
Accommodation will be your own bedroom and bathroom. We would be happy to collect you from a local train station if required.

Nearby Le Mans has a well-preserved old town (Cité Plantagenêt, also called Vieux Mans) and the Cathédrale St-Julien, dedicated to St Julian of Le Mans, who is honoured as the city's first bishop.
