Chateau owner, with 2 teenage children looking for help with some diy projects, gardening and some teaching projects with the children. The chateau is nestled amongst fields of agriculture, with large grounds. The house has been unloved for many years and needs bringing back to life.
Heimwerker- und Bauarbeiten
The area is full of history, local events & outdoor pursuits. The Charente is full of exciting things to do, with great links via Angouleme only 20 minutes away, to the rest of France. How much or how little you want to explore is up to you. You can learn what it takes to bring a 500 year old chateau back to life, use any teaching skills with my 2 wonderful children and immerse into the French language & culture.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
We bought the chateau nearly a year ago, as a home for myself & my 2 teenage boys who are on the autistic spectrum and our old friendly cat, Toby. My fiancé & their father, still lives in London but is regularly travelling between here & there.
The chateau is in the process of being brought back to life, after being empty for many years. chateau was built in the 16th century, with one remaining turret and has approx 5 acres of land, of which the park is 2 acres. Originally, the land was over 300 acres, but is now owned by the neighbouring farmer for agricultural use. We are in an idyllic location of peace & tranquility but minutes from the town of La Rochefoucauld & only 20 minutes from Angouleme.
It would be nice to welcome an enthusiastic guest, willing to muck in on some diy, potter around the estate & engage with the children with some teaching, art projects & embrace the beautiful surroundings.
My children are currently learning French, with my help, as I am half-French & I’m happy if you want to join in!
