  • Description


    We are a small English family who have come to South West France to enjoy its sunshine and slower pace in life. We have an old farmhouse set in a stunning location on a hill, that needs to be loved back to life. Efforts this winter have given us a newly completed gite but we need help on the land as we have 3hectares of woodland and garden. The views are fabulous and the night sky clear.

    The house is set on a hill and we have deer and wild boar in abundance. Far reaching views and lots of cherry trees. The main benefit for anyone joining us it the peace and tranquility. Yet within one kilometre there is a lively village considered to be one of the prettiest villages in France.

    We have 3H of woodland and some large fallen trees. Would love some help with cutting these trees up and stacking the wood for winter. Also some of the woodland needs to be copiced. The grounds need to be maintained and brambles cut back. Help also needed to paint inside and outside of the house. Cooking and general cleaning. Gardening
