  • Description

    Description

    We are a retired ex military couple living in the Charente region of France. Having bought a house with a large garden five years ago we have been renovating and ‘tidying’ ever since. We both enjoy the area, learning the language, gardening, walking, cycling, swimming (we do have a pool) history (lots of that round here!) singing (I run a local choir) films and music. We have two well behaved dogs and several chickens. It’s very quiet here, very relaxing, the countryside is quite lovely, it’s clean, lots of wildlife, insect and birdlife.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in the Charente in France and have immersed ourselves in French life and culture. We have beautiful chateau villages close by. Medieval towns, various rivers and big centres such as Poitiers and Angouleme. We often have dinners and so on with our French friends so if you are looking to learn French, practice French or learn about the culture we can offer some experience of that. There is a lot of WW2 history in these parts especially in regard to the various resistance groups.

    Aide

    Having bought a house with 2acres of previously formally planted shrubs and trees, I have need of someone to help get it in shape for next year. We are looking for someone who is physically able to help cut back, prune and tidy. Who can help with keeping hedges in shape and clearing brush and overgrown areas. You don’t need to be an expert in identifying shrubs/trees etc, although some knowledge would be handy.

    If you can help with the gardening for a few hours a day there will then be time free to explore the area, as you wish. You will need your own car as we are nowhere near public transport. We have two children in their late twenties both of whom live and work in the Uk. We have a slightly mad household really......busy all day and then ‘crash’ with a good book or some tv for the evening if we are not at friends or then with us. We do try and live as ‘carefully’ as we can, recycling, upcycling etc, etc.
