    Beschreibung

    We are a Franco-Belgian couple, sculptor and yoga teacher, wanting to be part of a necessary ecological transition...for this we have just bought a former convent in a small village in Dordogne (south of France) to build a place of life for many, which has meaning, in a search for simplicity and for external and internal ecology, a place to recharge and welcome yoga retreat , artists, writers,.... a place open to everything that will be consistent with our vision of being in the world. This year, we need to build a new bathroom in the convent, paint all the windows and restore another small house in a very beautiful village nearby. We also need help with the parc of the convent, cleaning the leaves, ...
    La Dordogne is a region rich in architectural heritage with a preserved nature, it has completely seduced us to carry out our project. The convent is a building from the middle of the 19th century, in good condition, requiring just interior fittings to revive it. Its basic function lends itself naturally to a life shared in simplicity and happiness.

    The location of the convent makes it a perfect place for lovers of old stones and history, in the picturesque Bastides region.We are living just next Beaumont-en-Périgord founded in 1272. With its numerous castles and medieval villages, our region will seduce you. With our knowledge, you will be able to experiment with manual working techniques with Stéphane (stonemason, sculptor, and with empirical knowledge in many crafts) and with Véro the possibility to join the yoga classes. It is quite obvious that for people who do not speak French it will be a good opportunity to practice and improve your knowledge (we speak perfectly English, a little Danish and a lot of Belgian:)))
    We’re going to do a good job, but we’re going to have a great time!

    We are initially looking for people who are not necessarily qualified but full of enthusiasm to assist us in the realization of an additional bathroom in the convent... then restoring the chapel, and another house in a beautiful village nearby. It will therefore be questions of masonry , stonework, painting . In a second time, we may need also some help to take care of the convent's park, clean the convent,...it's sooo big !
    Anyway be ready mostly for building work and painting this autumn and winter!!

    Man, woman, genderfluid...what counts is the motivation!!
