We are a French couple of retired university professors specialized in English/Welsh/Irish civilization and computing. We have hosted volunteers from all over the world for the past eight years in our beautiful gardens in Lower Normandy. Just read the feedback below to have an idea of the life here with us. Most volunteers have become friends.
We can teach very healthy and anti-cancer cuisine and also gardening and permaculture techniques. We also grow and plant herbs to make herbal teas.
But now we need you. Indeed lately I have heard I have cancer. I am going through chemotherapy at home and then a very heavy operation. My husband and I need company, a lot of laughters, very organized person for regulars meals and a bit of care and cleaning around the house. I need company and incentive for my daily walks. My pets ducks need water and food and keeping the garden tidy. Either a couple or a single lady preferably.
Around you can go walking, canoeing, climbing, and horse riding. 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 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.
Please come and help !

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.
There is a lot to do in the gardens if you are interested, painting maintenance anything... We want people who are well organized and know about gardening although we were 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.
You can continue continue our vegetable gardens with permaculture. Watering in the evening mulching, etc. We expect some participation with cleaning cooking shopping and washing up
