Area: Upper NormandyHi, I live in a small town close to Dieppe (a ferry port) and not far from Rouen. I have a ceramic studio here and make sculpture which I sell at art fairs in Britain mainly. We have a large garden which I struggle to keep on top of...but it is lovely. My partner works at a large Uni in London, but gets over here most weekends. We also have passing couchsurfers and warmshowers people here, so it can go from quiet to buzzing from one week to the next. If you think you would like to come here...it would be great if you read all the profile carefully as everything is explained but people often arrive not having read it all....thanks
Area: AuvergneHi, We are a british couple who are renovating a farmhouse in the mountainous Auvergne region of France. Previously a second home we moved down here a few months ago to get the project finished. Ben has been doing these projects in France for many years so it could be a good opportunity to learn a knew skill or two from him. We love cooking and good food and wine. There are many projects on with this renovation, both inside and out... see the 'Volunteer Work section'.... We can also help out with french speaking, you'll need this to chat with the neighbours, who are wonderful, but do not speak a word of English.... But they give us freshly laid eggs every day!! This is a very traditional part of France so far quite undiscovered by the non French. Walking here is fantastic (wild strawberries, blueberries and raspberries can be found on walks around the area..) , cycling quite challenging, But both are a great way to get to know the area (We have a couple of bikes for you to use). We are creating a garden at the moment, using some old stones to make some new features and having a lot of fun. There is also some interior, laying down boards, and some dry lining. We are on a farm with cows, sheep, horses, cats and dogs. The weather is beautiful and the view is all the way across the valley. The famous Puy Mary mountain is in view. The air is clean and the water is We love to get some work done in the day but also put as much importance on a good lunch! Someone with gardening skills would be wonderful. And all round handy people! We will be fitting a kitchen in the next month and doing some dry-lining for that If you are interested we would love to skype or chat so send us a message and we could arrange that.. Thank you.
