We are an English and French couple living in 10 hectares (25acres) of unspoiled natural countryside in the Mayenne area. Our property is a protected site for birds and butterflies and obviously we do not allow hunting on our land. Our lakes and woodland support a wide range of wildlife and we aim to upkeep this natural balance.
Over the last few years we have hosted many workawayers that have helped us to maintain our natural surroundings and renovate our farmhouse. Our farmhouse is now finished and we have remained friends with many of our workawayers.
During the summer, we are embarking on a new project.
We have another smaller property 10minutes drive from our farm which needs a lot of attention.
The house needs to be completely renovated and the garden (3500m2) needs a lot of attention.
Basically everything needs to be done.
As with the farmhouse we will try to use as many ecological materials (lime, hemp, straw, wood etc) as possible.

We try to live a simple life close to nature and we try to make things we require rather than just buying them. We are both inventive and respectful of nature and all living things. Our days usually include at least a snippet of fun and originality.
good fun is the way to hapiness, and we cherish it.

Primarily workaways will be invited into the family to share in family life and work.
We are looking for an exchange of knowledge, culture, or language and hopefully all of these.
The help we require is notably physical in nature, but is always shared and dependent not only on the weather but also on the ability of the workers involved.
Outdoor work such as gardening, trimming hedges and creating a vegetable plot (permaculture system), will be available as well as renovation work on the house. This will include all trades as there is everything to do.
We seem to always have more than one type of work to do at any one time, so it is usually fairly easy to find a suitable job for each workaway.

We have two fully renovated double bedrooms and a shared bathroom with a separate toilet, upstairs for the workaways in our farmhouse.
Food is obviously free and varied. We eat a lot of vegetarian and vegan food but workaways are also free to show us their favourite dish.
There are plenty of local walks.
Musicians are always welcome. We have a couple of guitars.
We have 3 friendly cats, and few chickens
By experience, I know that short stay doesn't allow to get to know someone well. We both need a few days to adapt to each other and to start to open up..... which is the point of workaway for us, anyway.
So we would prefer if you stay at least 10 to 15 days.

Generally our expectations are flexible. We usually hope to work 4 to 5 hours a day; 5 days a week but other arrangements can be made.
