  • Description

    Description

    English couple with a young Black Dog living in rural France.

    We are looking for flexible helpers, happy to help us with whatever the day demands.

    We need help with finishing off a fish pond, fish are happily swimming in it but surrounding area needs finishing, tree felling, wood cutting, interior decorating ,plus help with issues as they occur.

    We have a number of windows and doors to replace so being able to lift would be an advantage.

    We have a problem with our garage roof that needs repairing.

    We have a bathroom needing a full refit.

    Preferably all helpers will be flexible and happy to take on any of the above depending on need and weather. Advice on how to use tools necessary for the work will be given.

    We are non smoking and are seeking helpers that do not smoke at all. Helpers should be happy to live as part of the group during their stay.

    We accept both skilled or unskilled people.

    We prefer people that are happy to work with us or separately as necessary.

    We have wireless internet available for emailing and normal surfing.

    You will sleep in the house in a double or single bedded room or in one of the two bedrooms in the tent. In exchange for 25 hours work per week.
    Note: we cannot accept helpers with children or pets.
    At breakfast and lunch we eat as a group .
    After work we normally eat together the evening meal normally consists of 2 courses with wine, beer or soft drinks.
    We have a huge selection of movies on DVD if you enjoy them which we watch together, or we are happy to play board games.

    The countryside around here is mostly gentle slopes with a few hills.

    Our nearest town is St Maixent L'Ecole, it is a historic garrison town worth an afternoon wandering around its old streets. It also houses a military museum within the national NCO college.
    Note there is no public transport. We visit the town at least once per week when you are welcome to join us.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Rural location. We live in a small hamlet, population 6, in a stone cottage split into 3 houses, 1 of which is renovated. We can offer a bedroom in the house or the tent in exchange for 25 hours help per week. Weekends are normally free.
    We prefer volunteers who are happy to live as part of the group during their stay, we would expect this to involve helping prepare meals if asked and the inevitable clearing away afterwards.
    Volunteers are asked to assist with household chores as part of their hours.
    Learn how to use all types of machinery safely, and experience the DIY world. Have a different social life than in a big city. I also brew English home-brewed beer which is simple to do once you've done it. Plus the pleasure of drinking it.

    This has been a very difficult year, to do our best to stay safe and protect other helpers, we require incoming helpers to have a Covid-19 test with a negative result within 72 hours prior to arrival. This is not a big ask as testing is free in France.
