    We are looking for someone to help with general gardening and also with our vegetable patch which needs some serious attention! Also, possible mowing with a tractor mower and strimming.
    Having just finished some renovation, we need some help with general tidying of the courtyard/farmyard.
    Also, help with the cows, feeding, checking and possible moving of animals, fencing etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in a very rural location, so not suitable for helpers who like to be part of a large social community.
    Our nearest village La Trimouille is 5km away, has a small bar/restaurant, small shop, pharmacy and cinema.
    Our closest cities are Poiters and Limoges, both approx 1hr from us and have train stations and airports. We are happy to collect helpers if necessary. There are also various smaller stations nearer.
