  • Ajuda


    General help around the house, especially gardening, leaf sweeping, hedge clipping, maintenance, cleaning, tidying and painting, carpentry...and I sometimes need help with house cleaning/tidying too.
    If you are strong and know how to use chainsaw, strimmer and gardening tools it could be useful.
    You might be asked to feed pets, horses, prepare vegetables, if you enjoy cooking we love tasting different foods, -- Activities with the children are especially welcomed: it's not really babysitting, but more like bicycle rides, basketball, tennis, badminton, table tennis, swimming, playing cards and board games and non-screen craft ideas are really appreciated.
    If you have untreated hay or cat or animal allergies, it is not suitable for you.
    (Children 16 and 15 years old)
    We do expect you to keep your room and the shower tidy and clean, and to help us with cleaning and clearing and washing up after meals.
    Work is very varied and we try to adapt it to your desires, your abilities and skill level.
    We can help you learn French, we speak and teach English too.

  • Acomodação


    Own room (quite small) (towels and bedding) one double bed, with separate shower room, food & wifi..
    (We expect you to supply your own shampoos, dental care and toiletries)
    We generally aim to eat our meals altogether, and we try and eat locally produced food. For these reasons vegetarian diets will cause us problems as we believe that we would not be able to provide a suitable balanced type of diet.
    We eat all meat and try and have a balanced diet with our home grown vegetables.
    Our farm is out in the country - the nearest night life is 20 minutes away by car. If you like the countryside there are good walks and runs all round us. There are bicycles available.
