  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple, renovating a beautiful large rambling old French house, bits of which date back to the 13th century. Phil is Australian and does most of the heavy stuff, however I support him marvelously with painting, stripping etc and handle all the admin/marketing side of things. We have 2 rooms already available for B&B'ing but would like to get the entire house available for group bookings by June 2017 so the pressure is on !! We have a lovely cottage with woodburner you can stay in, only 100 metres away so you have your own space (and we will provide provisions and/or meals).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the chance to work in an amazing house, live in a beautiful rural hamlet of France and integrate with the locals who are all quite delightful.

    Lots of varied tasks needed - gardening, painting, tiling, cleaning etc. Nothing too specialised.

    English and a bit of French!

    We have a sweet little cottage which is only 100 metres from the main house and would be ideal as a bolt hole for volunteers so we both have our own privacy. You can obviously stay there free in return for some help and we would give you basic provisions and/or meals.
