  • Description

    Description

    Hi, my name is Julia and I have just moved from Australia to France. I have purchased a petit chateau on 15 acres with many outbuildings, a woodland, old walled gardens and a grotto that fills a seasonal lake.

    My background is in interior design and art, so I want to create a beautiful artistic, creative space, where people can come, relax and create.

    The property is a combination of the main house, needing renovation, a one bedroom cottage, a studio, a small barn to renovate into a 2 bedroom cottage and a huge barn ideal for creative workshops and functions.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The joy of the French countryside while making new friends and working together on a project. I am happy to share and pass on all my knowledge as an interior designer, as we work together to create beautiful artistic spaces, in the house and in the gardens.

    The property is located between Figeac, and Villefranche-de-Rouergue, being only a 20 minute drive away and both with train stations. Villeneuve and Cajarc are only 10 minutes away. There are so many wonderful villages and towns in the area with great local markets and historical sites to visit.

    I will have several different projects that I need help with, such as plastering, sanding, painting, gardening, general tidying of the woodland, and general maintenance work around the property.

    I have a background in art and design and I intend to use all me skills in creating beautiful spaces in my buildings and gardens. I am happy to share and pass on my knowledge in design.
