Hello everyone! We just bought our dream home in France, a townhouse with a small courtyard and a one bedroom guesthouse, right in the middle of one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, Montsoreau. Sadly for us, the closing was on the very last day of our trip so we didn't have any time to get the guest house set up with furniture/stuff so that we can hopefully rent it out on and help pay for this wonderful place.
Is there any interest out there for someone (or a couple) who would like to stay at the guest house for a month and get it set up for us? We would pay for all the furniture/furnishings/utilities. We're hoping to find someone familiar with Facebook marketplace (that's where we plan on sourcing most of the stuff, minus the mattress which will be purchased new), who has a car and speaks fairly good French. Extra bonus points if you've run or set up some sort of guest lodging before so that you know what we'd be looking for.
In return, you'd get a month in one of France's loveliest villages. It's perched right on the aloire River, overlooking the chateau of Montsoreau. Lots of cafes, restaurants, wine tasting places, mushroom growing caves, a boulangerie/patisserie and a small grocery store all within walking distance. The town is a true vacation destination so you won't be bored! Honestly, if we had two days there, I think we would have been able to do it ourselves, but we just didn't have the time. The guest house isn't huge - it has a basic kitchen, an entryway, and a large loft bedroom with a fully renovated bathroom. We already have bikes there which you'd be welcome to use if you'd like to try out the bike trails along the Loire.
