  • Descrição


    We live in a little Normandy village between historical Falaise and Saint Pierre sur Dives. We have been living in this old fashioned country manor (1784) for over 30 years now, and we had a very big family (6 kids) . Now we have just one son living here with us. That makes 3. We have two lovely but rather shy cats.
    So the people remaining are myself a retired academic and my husband the same. He's perfectly bi-lingual, and I am imperfectly bi-lingual. He writes a lot and translates from English to French. We were both language teachers for a long time and so can help out with the learning of French for our visitors.
    We basically need a hand to keep the house and the very large garden in order.

    Normandy hardly needs an introduction and all I need say is that it is beautiful. (I leave internet to develop the theme)

  • Ajuda


    We just can't seem to get round to doing everything because of the actual size of the place and basically need a hand with the garden chores like clearing leaves and weeding the drive and keeping the hedges trim. We have an organic approach to the growing of our potatoes and beans etc. and also need a bit of help with that. In the house itself , I'd like a hand putting the attic back into shape as it has been a storeroom for a lot of people. There is a spot of painting to be done, only if the visitor felt she/he he could handle it.
