    Description

    We are in URGENT need of HELP.

    We are Madeleine and Tony who live in South West France at the edge of a small medieval village called Tillac (pronouncet "TEE-AK"). We have 1.3 hectares (about 4 acres) of gardens, including 2 gites (holiday homes) with swimming pool in 2,500 m2 of their own gardens. We have a four year old rescue dog, Darci. She is a Labrador cross, young, playful and loving.

    We both have xtensive arthritis and cannot cope alone. Are you good at heavy garden work ? It would be very handy if you have experience in the use of a strimmer/brushcutter and the usual gardening tools. The work involves maintaining trees and shrubs, weeding, cleaning out the lake, etc. and will involve digging and other heavy work. So able-bodied people are needed. Experienced gardeners particularly welcome.

    We have recently agreed a sale of our house for completion at the end of September so we need help preparing the house for handover then. Also we need assistance in preparing the gites for occupancy during the Summer.

    We are an English-speaking household so if you want to brush up your French, we are NOT the hosts for you.

    We are looking for one or two people who can share a bedroom with en-suite facilities in our renovated 120+ year old house. Please check our calendar to find out when we have vacancies but we have an urgent need for assistance NOW - 2-4 weeks minimum.

    People with their own transport would be particularly well suited as we are out in the country and we can not always promise to take you on exploration trips. Workawayers from the UK would need to prove they have had both vaccinations in order to enter France.

    Tillac is a pretty medieval village in the heart of the rolling Gascon countryside. It lies between two small towns - Marciac, home to the International Jazz Festival, and Mirande. There is little night life in the village, except the bar/restaurants but nearby Marciac does offer bars, restaurants and a cinema that can handle 3D films and does show some English language films. There are also various musical events in Tillac and Marciac.

    Aide

    We are looking for people with practical skills who are willing to make a notable contribution. In the gardens (which include a lake of 1,000 m2) we are looking for assistance in the maintenance of the lawn, potager (vegetable patch), trees, shrubs and flower beds.

    We also need housekeeping/decorating assistance in our house and the gites. This include help in our main house (a traditional Gascon farmhouse from about 1840), refreshing the decoration of some of the rooms inside our house and some decorating inside and outside the gite.

    Tillac, where we live, is a small but beautiful medieval village set in gentle rolling countryside. It has a general store and 2 bar/restaurants. It is at the mid-point of a triangle formed by three other somewhat larger villages, Mirande, Marciac and Mielan. The Pyrenees are 1.5 hrs. away, Biarritz and the Atlantic coast 2 hrs., Toulouse 1.5 hrs. and the Mediterranean coast about 3.5 hours away. This is "La France Profonde".
