About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

Now have need for help short or long term,
There is always plenty to do, learn and enjoy. The farmhouse is a longere in the valley of a beautiful village near Vire in Lower Normandy. It is approx an hour from the port of Caen. We have been here for four years and integrate as much as possible in village life. We are looking for people to help keep the house lovely and clean and help out wherever possible domestically. Registered French racehorse breeders, we also run a business in the UK from here in France via the internet which takes up a lot of precious time on a day to day basis, hence the need for help. House and animal sitting may be requested. We also have 2 dogs and a cat. Outdoor work is ongoing all the time too with wood chopping/stacking, field management and garden care.
There is good internet access here so there is Skype etc available 24/7. Comfortable living conditions, with own single/double bedroom and spacious living space

Sue spends time working in UK for a couple of weeks at a time and this is when Nick needs support.
Nick was a sea captain all his working life.Sue is a qualified semi-retired Physiotherapist. We run a neurological physiotherapy business in the UK from here in France via the internet which takes up a lot of precious time on a day to day basis, hence the need for helpers, there may be occasions when one or both of us need to visit the UK for our business, so house and animal sitting may be requested.
We enjoy an informal lifestyle enjoying the food and drink for which the country is renowned. Close enough to Vire not to be remote and close enough to the village so as to be secluded.
