  • Descrição


    We are currently living in rural France, in the Mayenne departement (53) where a have a lovely old stone house and attached gite in a small hamlet.
    We are looking for some help growing organic veg and fruit, some general garden help, and some house restoration, especially lime mortaring/pointing on the outside stone walls
    We can offer a very comfortable and characterful 2 bedroom gite for you to stay in while you work with us. It has its own fully equipped kitchen, lovely shower room with power shower, and comfy memory foam beds (one double room and one twin)
    Dave is a good cook, and we especially love to make all sorts of different curries. I am a vegetarian, whereas Dave likes to eat meat occasionally.
    The local area has beautiful countryside, forests, villages and towns, and we can offer regular day trips out and lifts to shops and local towns. We can also provide bikes- one of which is electric.
    We both used to be teachers in the secondary sector in the UK, Ali as an environmental scientist and Dave as a geographer. We love to travel to warm and wildlife-filled places in the winter, and we both particularly enjoy bird watching.
    We look forward to hearing from you
    Ali and Dave

    Sowing, planting and looking after organic veggie and fruit beds.
    Lime mortaring of outside walls. We try to garden in a way that will look lovely but will still benefit insects, birds etc and prefer volunteers who are of the same opinion. Any particular skills you have in that area would be great.
