Hello dear Workaway(s)!
I am Fabien, 50 years old and Léa-Alphonsine my 11 years old daughter. we live in a beautiful place in the Dordogne between Perigueux and Bordeaux.
Our house is a spacious selfmade wooden house. There's still a lot to be done around the house!
The village and the surroundings are really nice, with lots of forests around for walking or cycling. There is also a lovely river running through the village for summer swimming and canoeing. The super market is 10 km far from our home.

You will join us in our social life, I enjoy teaching some dishes and pastry and of course French !
You will be welcomed as a family member and your daily support (a couple of hours) would be much appreciated. The chores could include:
cooking , cleaning the house,ironing, cleaning the orchard, weeding parts of the garden (such as removing brambles), cleaning the poultry yard including the hen house, and potentially beekeeping 1 hive if you are up to the challenge. Also wood work for a barn extension.Fabien have a collection of Citroen old timer cars and vans of different sorts (i.e. 2CV DS HY AMI6 Mehari etc...) and any mechanical skills to help for mechanic or bodywork would be welcome and also car washing.
The project in the moment is mostly in the garden to make it nice and to breed the vegetable, their is always some house work, with cooking, little ironing & cleaning. I will start to finish an eco flat !
Take a pick based on your experience and skills.
French, German, English, Spanish and Portuguese
Our proposal is to share the house including daily meals obviously. We supply breakfast and two other meals every day, mostly organic and vegetarian food. We don't drink much alcohol, but sometimes we have some good wine or selfmade beer (by me!) with friends.
Please note that we are a non-smoking family and consequently a non-smoking house.
Fabien play the trumpet every Thursdays and Fridays evenings in a regional Big Band.
The nearest train station is either Montpon-Ménésterol or Mussidan and we can pick you up if needed.
The nearest airport is either Bergerac or Bordeaux.
Wifi is also available in the house.
Bikes and a canoe will be provided if you dare.
Its preferable to come for a minimum of 2 weeks, we don't care about longer stay,
For the moment we need help for cooking with the garden vegetable and also weeding !
We have place from now to the 21 of july !
Do not hesitate to ask for more details!
