  • Description


    Hello my name is Veronique! I spend 6 months of the year working in the US and traveling around South America then I enjoy spending the others 6 months of the year in my old family home in the Southwest of France, 20 kms from the historical town of La Rochelle.

    It is a wonderful place to be from early April to the end of October. It is a great touristic destination in France with beautiful historical towns, old forts and churches, wonderful walks along the coast, beaches to relax, four islands to discover, and all of it less than one hour drive from my house.

    After 6 months away, I will be looking for help in the spring to get the house ready for family gatherings. The work will involve: cleaning the house, gardening, working with wood and painting. See details below.

    I can receive a couple or a single person for 2 weeks at a time. You must be comfortable helping with some of the projects around the house and garden, described above. We will work together in the morning so your afternoons and evenings will be free to explore our beautiful region, meet some of my friends, enjoy the heated pool or just relax around the garden. You will get two days off per week to go to destinations further away such as the beautiful town and wineries of Bordeaux.
