Mature and stable person or couple for short-term and long-term engagement.
Keep the house lived-in and fresh, care for 8 sheep and 6 chicken (for both, just feeding, twice daily), and from Spring to Autumn light vegetable garden tasks.
Rural location, quiet, peaceful, beautiful place, old stone farmhouse renovated with simple charm and comfort, and very practical to keep.
Be comfortable with caring for small farm animals. We have 8 sheep and 6 chicken that require very easy care, just some feeding in morning and evening, and keeping an occasional eye on them during the day.
I stayed at Marc's lovely country house for two weeks while he was away. The house is very comfortable. I had a large room with a luxury bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped, the house is charming and is set in a quiet village and pristine nature, with a couple of very friendly and helpful neighbours. The animals are easy to look after once you are explained the feeding routine. You will have fresh eggs every day! There are some interesting towns nearby with weekly markets. It was a great experience and would,suit anyone who appreciates the bucolic charm of rural France.
The farmette is set on a quiet side road, the occasional friendly neighbour passes but aside from that-you have the gift of solitude! I was able to eat strait from the garden and enjoy beautiful walks in the adjacent fields along with my dog Hario who like most dogs, thoroughly loves the farm life. We got to see and hear our fair share of wildlife too! Marc was an incredible host, so kind, open and flexible. We grew very fond of the animals who have their own individual energies and were a joy to look after. I had such a wonderful time caring for this property, I would most certainly return!
