We're Kate & Peter. We love traditional French life & try to spend several months in France each year. Because Kate runs a business in the UK & works full time time in France is limited. in 2016 we bought a beautiful but neglected family house in the Haute Vienne. It may not be a chateau but it’s quite big. We've done the basic work needed to make it comfortable - there's hot water & central heating, but there's still lots of work to be done - & we never seem to have enough time! We’ve got lots of plans & need help to spruce it up again.
We’re in a lovely little country town in the centre of France, just a whisker from the Dordogne. If you want to practice your French you’ll be in the right place – it’s la France profonde here and we have the most wonderful boulangerie/ patisserie in our town – c’est genIal (brilliant!). We take a day out on Saturday or Sunday so we’ll take you out to see & enjoy the local attractions

We'd love some help with making our house look lovely again. The mission – should you choose to accept it – is painting (if it’s dry – outside, if it’s wet inside) & general help with refurbishing & maintenance.
You'll be in a comfortable recently refurbished double bedroom. In the house we have table tennis, darts, table football, books, music & internet. There is a courtyard garden for sunbathers. Kate is also an excellent cook (vegetarian/ vegan food a speciality).
Twice a month there's a big foire in town, which is well worth seeing. There are regular music & cultural events. There's a train & bus service into Limoges, or nearest big town. Nearby we have chateaux, churches, gardens, markets, as well as an inland beach & associated sports & leisure activities.
