  • Descrição


    We are a British couple who retired to the Charente in 2002. We now need help with gardening and other household maintenance jobs. We have a 6 bedroom house , built in 1856, which we have renovated, with a garden, bread oven and chicken run. New raised beds are waiting to be sewn with veg. We also have a variety of fruit trees and make chutneys and jams after filling the freezer. We would welcome a couple with a dog. We live in a village setting close to the local town, Ruffec.

    Algo mais...

    The Charente is a very attractive area of France with lovely stone houses, & even the occasional chateau. Being rural there is very little public transport, except the school bus. However there is a train from Ruffec to Poitiers and Angouleme. There are local restaurants and bars and quite a large group of British people who live in the area.
