We an British family who have been living in the heart of the Loire Valley since 2007. Jon is originally from Worcestershire and Alison Derbyshire. Our daughter Ruby (11) was born in nearby Saumur.
We have a large garden and two houses to keep up to date and in the early Spring we need help with general maintenance and gardening. We only take couples and expect them to be relatively independent. We envisage a maximum of 5 hours per day, 5 days a week.
This year we're are also looking for a photographer to take photos of our properties and photos of a range of cycling clothing that we are developing - in studio and outdoor situations.
Our passion is cycling and in the summer we run cycling holidays for guests from all over the world. If you're keen, we have a range of bikes you can use to explore our region in your free time.
We'll make sure you feel part of the family while you're with us. If we're heading to the markets or local towns you're welcome to join us for the ride.
