  • Descrição


    Hi, I'm British and have lived in the french countryside for many years. I am a painter, My children are all working adults and I have a grandson.
    This is an un spoilt région in France, Le Gers, look it up! I seem to have always lots of 'gardening/clearing/small building projects on the go that take up too much time single-handedly and distract me from my painting.
    A friend, who has had several workawayers suggested I give it a go.
    Here is a peaceful, outdoor life, though 10 mins from the nearest village all . You need a car to get around really.

    All travellers know that meeting different people and being in different places is a valuable experience and a great thing to do. I am english and an artist (painter) living in France for thirty + years now. I have learnt lots of skills here, hands on.
    Travellers here, would meet an english artist who loves the countryside and healthy living , and enjoys a good debate.
    I bought this property as a ruin and over the last twenty years have worked towards making it a lovely home.
    You can learn gardening skills.

  • Ajuda


    I am looking for someone, or two friends, could be a couple, who have ideally some experience in gardening and building, and are fit and able.

    - to help in the garden; digging, wheel- barrowing, bon fires, cutting back brambles...saplings ...
    Knowledge of chainsaw useful.And Strimmer.

    There could be other jobs: cutting branches, clearing, if someone has experience with a chainsaw.

    Where I live is a former 'farmstead', situated without close neighbours, and not on a bus route. If you have transport, all the better. If not I can collect you from the station which is 45mins away. I can take you out on your time off and collect you. It's a great area for walking. I do have a bicycle for recreation though we are not without hills.

    If you and a friend or partner fit this profile, and on occasion will help me a bit in the kitchen preparing meals, if you have a cheerful disposition and are prepared to muck in to advance the jobs, I would be happy to have you. For a week or two or more. The house is comfortable, lots of hot water, your private bedroom or two, a nice kitchen ... and a dog.
