  • Descripción


    We are a British couple who retired to the Charente in 2002. We now need help with gardening and other household maintenance jobs. We have a 6 bedroom house , built in 1856, which we have renovated, with a garden, bread oven and chicken run. New raised beds are waiting to be sewn with veg. We also have a variety of fruit trees and make chutneys and jams after filling the freezer. We would welcome a couple with a dog. We live in a village setting close to the local town, Ruffec.

This is where friends and family stay and is an area effectively separate from our rooms on the middle floor. We are flexible about eating arrangements but would share a kitchen. Some help would be expected with catering but we would be happy to share meals.

    The Charente is a very attractive area of France with lovely stone houses, & even the occasional chateau. Being rural there is very little public transport, except the school bus. However there is a train from Ruffec to Poitiers and Angouleme. There are local restaurants and bars and quite a large group of British people who live in the area.
