    PLEASE NOTE:
    * During the current period, we are looking for people who are willing to stay for one month or longer to avoid a rapid turnover and thereby reduce the risk not only to ourselves but to other Workawayers.

    We have a small farmhouse in central-southern France, which is a work-in-progress, as are the farm buildings. Our eldest daughter Everleigh is nearly two-and-a-half and Iris is nearly 4 months old, so we are looking for a few extra pairs of hands to help with the renovation work, farm work, babysitting and helping around the house. We are located about 20 minutes from Tulle, the nearest town, and the nearest bakery is about 4km away. We are in the department of Correze, which is known as the "Green Country"; there are lots of trees and the countryside is undulating - very scenic for cycling and walking/running, which suits us as we are keen trail runners and triathletes. There are also lakes nearby which we often visit to swim.

  • Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We eat a predominantly plant-based diet and don't support factory or industrial farming, and we try to eat locally-produced food whenever possible. We expect workawayers to respect this stance during their stay. We speak English (native), Japanese (native and near-native), French (near-native and intermediate) and Spanish (beginner), so guests could practise any of these languages. Workawayers would also have the opportunity to learn about renovation and/or permaculture, and spend time in a lovely part of France. On our farm we grow raspberries, blackcurrants, blueberries (plants are only in their early stages) and most fruit and vegetables that are compatible with our climate. This year we are also starting to raise chickens and bees. We have a dog; Bruce (German Shepherd), who is very friendly.

    Arbeit

    We are not looking for people who are necessarily experts (we are certainly not experts ourselves), but people who are interested in our project, able to think on their feet, and willing to get in and give a hand, whatever the task may be. Possible tasks may include: eco-renovation of an old stone building, mulching, weeding, brushcutting, collecting firewood, and general help around the house. We expect Workawayers to work 4-5 hours per day.
    We also try to have one person who can take care of Everleigh and/or Iris for a couple of hours a day, and help with housework. This person should have some experience in looking after babies, and be happy with not using their electronic devices whilst babysitting.
    We have chickens, ducks and bees, so Workawayers will be able to help and learn about keeping these animals during their stay.
    We try to be flexible with working hours and trust our Workawayers to keep an eye on their own working hours, and expect our Workawayers to also be flexible and punctual.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    The old stone farmhouse we live in is quite basic. Depending on the number of workawayers we have at the time, workawayers will stay in one of the bedrooms in the house or in a tent in a barn loft (we provide proper mattresses). We only accommodate workawayers in the tents from April to October. As there are only two bedrooms in the house, you may have to share the room depending on the number of workawayers who are staying here. Please let us know if this is a problem and we will try to find a solution for you.

    Was noch ...

    We have mountain bikes that Workawayers can borrow to discover the surrounding countryside. There are also pleasant walks in the area. We are both part-time translators so Workawayers will have time off while we are working. We are an easy-going couple but we do work quite hard.

    In terms of meals, we have found that it works best both for us and workawayers if we have a balance between eating together and separately. This way, we have the opportunity to get to know each other, and the workwayers also get some time to themselves to get to know the other workawayers or just to chill out. We eat together around three evenings a week (on weekdays), and for the rest of the time, we provide workawayers with food they are free to use.
