Charente Assistance

        Homme Toutes Mains  /  Handyman

Hard work pays dividend

Owning a gite can be rewarding but its also hard work!  We have met many people who successfully run one or several gites.  One thing most of these people have in common is that, perhaps from time to time, they need a little help.  That might be with cleaning, the laundry or with some of the maintenance.  Guess what.....  we can help with all those aspects.


Taylor made services

As we have developed Charente Assistance from its humble beginnings much of what we have done has in some ways been alongside those who rent out houses. We have listened to our clients needs and responded by providing the assistance that they need. Sometimes we have been asked to clear an area of neglected garden, sometimes season long garden maintenance or occasionally a one-off emergency job.

Whatever the need we are sure we can help.

Gite 'Quad Cover'

We hear, from time to time, the horror stories of how gite owners are let done by unlucky or unreliable help.  We hear tales of how owners take on one person to do the changeover, another to do the garden and, heaven forbid, perhaps a third to do the laundry or the pool.  With each person waiting on another to complete their part in this time pressured job it can be frustrating at best, disastrous at worst!
In order to avoid these potential disasters we have developed what we call 'Quad Cover'.  That means when we take on a gite for the season, we will take responsibility for all four aspects:

Changeovers - Laundry - Garden & Pool

That way we can ensure that each element is completed on time and to the highest standard.


Changeover cleans

Meet and greet

Emergency call outs

Pre Season Opening That first clean of the season that means you can start as you mean to go on.

Post Season Works

After what is hopefully a successful season of rentals we can handle any redecoration works that may be required.

Security Checks

Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly - whatever you need out of season.


We have a purpose built dedicated Laundry Service Area for our rental clients.

This is a smoke-free and pet-free area used exclusively for this purpose.


Grass Cutting


Hedge Trimming



As well as all other aspects of

Garden Maintenance


If your rental has a pool then we can cover all the necessary maintenance that is required.


We also have a pool robot available if, as sometimes can be the case, your pool cleaner needs some help.

Seasonal Opening

Regular Cleaning

Chemical Balancing

Seasonal Closure

Garden and Pool services are available to all customers on a one-off or regular basis.  Please contact us if you have any enquiries.

At this time, Gite Changeovers and Laundry are only available as part of our 'Quad Cover' service.  If your gite does not have a pool, do not worry, we may still be able to help you.  Contact us for more information.
