We are a couple, Thimy and Gauthier, in our mid thirties and we live in the beautiful countryside of Flanders between Bruges and Gent. We live in renovated farmhouse on 2 hectares of land. Part of it is a field (that the local farmer help us maintain). We have a part of the garden (around 500m2) we would like to turn into an English garden. For the moment it is just a big lawn. I am quite new to gardening but I am very motivated and would love some help and ideas. I think it could be a great opportunity for gardening enthusiasts to work on a blank canvas. We would also love to extend our vegetable garden so we could be self sufficient. The ground is very fertile so it would be a shame not to take full advantage of such beautiful place.
We have some chickens, a pet pig and 2 large dogs.
I was born in Vietnam, raised in France and spent all my professional life as an expat (Hong Kong, Sydney and Athens).
Gauthier is originally from the village and worked internationally for the last 15 years. We lived together in Athens. We both work from home.

After years of intensive travels, we have chosen a more balanced and healthy lifestyle. We are quiet and value peace and calm. We try to shop as much as possible at local organic farms and we also love to cook. You will be staying in an environment surrounded by comfort, nature and quietness. It is a great place to recharge. Between the 2 of us we speak French, English, Dutch, German, Spanish and Greek, so if you want to practice a language we are happy to switch.
We are looking for help mainly with gardening but some paint job to maintain buildings might be required.
It is the countryside, so the work can be physical.
We would also love to hear from your experiences and ideas.
