  • Description

    Description

    We are a French couple of university professors specialized in English/Welsh/Irish civilization and computing. We love music and entertaining. We are now living in this beautiful domain in Normandy with lots of gardens and field. Around you can go walking, canoeing, climbing, and horse riding. . We know our wine well and good quality organic food is always available. We need help all year round. No digging no herbicide nor pesticide is our motto. We want to do our share now we have time to save what is left of our planet. 'very idealistic I know, but we can try, try and try...we'll succeed at last (Jimmy Cliff) . We are a bit isolated .We leave in a very small hamlet with nothing but kind people around. Next village 4kms. Cities around 12kms , or more. We have good bikes to lend. and can drop you places if needed sometimes.Extremely quiet place, wonderful gardens for meditation, art ,yoga, taichi . If you are a city lover with bars and disco, stay away you won't like it.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    As university professors ,we have spent our lives with young people, so we are used to exchange on many topics, dealing with research , science and civilization. Dominique is also a specialist at teaching languages and has extremely efficient simple techniques to teach languages. She knows a lot about gardening, permaculture and is a wonderful cook . French cuisine has no secret for her. Now she is studying all sorts of new approaches to food and their benefits for a healthy diet. Studies about medicinal herbs. We know our wine well and provide good quality organic food. Beware we refuse to provide industrial food , coke and the like! !!!
    We love playing games cards, dice and so on. We also can have music evenings or pool competitions.
    Life is too short to be dull.
    We also love photography, painting, sculpture and will organize a photo exhibition in July in our chapel when finished. (pretty shabby state, also needs work to be done to it ...)

    Help! Urgent for next spring .If you know about installing wood horse fences you would be a great help. 45 Posts and 100 meters of double planks to be installed. Gardening and outdoor maintenance. For next spring we need help for weeding and lawn mowing, and remaking loads of flower beds. Repainting garden doors and furniture . Some wood carpentry needed as well And of course, We have 2 acres.You decide and choose what you want to do but a mixing between gardening and maintenance especially if you know lime would be appreciated. There is a lot to do. We want people who are well organized and know about gardening although we are very good at it ourselves. People who are hard working and like what they do, autonomous once they have been explained what has to be done in general terms.
    Lime work if you are interested to learn and help with the work in our 15th century chapel.
    We also continue our vegetable gardens with permaculture. Watering in the evening mulching, etc. We expect some participation with cleaning cooking shopping and washing up.
    PS We also intend to work on water supply for watering the gardens if you have that sort of knowledge.
