Program Details

I offer a place for people who like to be involved in all aspects of running a house with an emphasis on gardening and cooking. There are no fixed hours, we do what has to be done when needed and you will find that the weather is often important in deciding what we do each day.
I offer tours of the region to visit some of the beauty that is to be seen arround me: Towns, the coast , chapels or natural landscape features. Music and other social events are organised all year round in the village or nearby.
I prefer people who do not need to be connected on line at all times!


Activities & Shift

Work generally does not start before 10 am. The position is not suitable to people who want to use me as a base with their own adgenda after work.
I am looking for people wishing to imerse themselves in a friendly home helping with diverse activerties with the garden being the main focus.
