  • Descripción


    We, Pete & Brigitte, moved into our house, in very peaceful South West French countryside, August 2016. The house was finished but the garden was a blank canvas. We are operating as a B&B and have had several guests already. We have 2 horses and sometimes up to 2 liveries. We have 2 very friendly dogs.

    What we need : Somebody/ies that will join in. There is weeding and mowing that needs to be done. Stone wall building and wooden raised beds to be made and planted.
    Our horses are competition horses, we need somebody that is very competent when handling and riding the horses. We also need somebody that is willing to poo pick, jump on the muckheap and sweep. Grooming if we go to a competition.
    Some building maintenance help needed – gutters need their joints gluing and the wooden shutters need rubbing down and repainting.
    We will definitely not ask anybody to do anything that we would not do ourselves.

    The accommodation : A large room with double bed, ensuite bath room with large shower. Sofa and large flatscreen TV. French doors opening onto the fabulous view.
    The situation : We live on the crest of a hill, over 1km from any neighbours and 8km from the nearest shops. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a newly converted barn with awesome views then we can offer you that and more.
    Additional info : We anticipate B&B guests who may eat with us, so there should be interaction with others. We hold small scale equestrian events where we would need help, including catering.

    Algo más...

    most of a volunteers time off would be spent enjoying the peace and quiet. There may be the use of a small car but this is yet to be purchased. We are very active in and around the property.
    When our children were younger we often had visitors/exchanges so are well versed in having visitors.
