    Beschreibung

    We are a couple in our 50's, who have been living in France for two years in a chateau which had been uninhabited for 40 years. Situated in the South West of France, surrounded by beautiful countryside but only 10 minutes drive from the lovely ancient town of Saintes and 30 mins from the coast . The chateau, grounds and numerous outbuildings all need some attention and so we encourage people to take on tasks which they enjoy. The area is very peaceful and a real rural retreat.

    The experience of living in a French chateau in the beautiful French countryside. The opportunity to assist in all different types of tasks . We are not remote and so there are lots of interesting places to visit close by including Saintes with its Roman ampitheatre and history. If you want to learn French we have plenty of French friends and this area has relatively few English speaking residents. There will be opportunities to get involved in French life in the local community.

    There is much to do in the grounds of the chateau from general cutting and clearing, simple fences to landscaping. There are numerous old stone buildings within the grounds that are in various states of disrepair which need a bit of attention. We are renovating our home so any building experience is useful but not necessary and we would just love some help. Inside the chateau there are lovely rooms with original decor and features that are waiting to be brought back to life by people that have the skills to do so.

    The chateau is situated close to walking trails which pass through farmland and woodlands inhabited by wild deer and boar. We are close to the River Charente where you can kayak, hire boats or swim, which is very popular in the summer. There is an equestrian centre close by and a lovely golf course a short distance away. There are lots of markets to visit in the historic Roman town of Saintes. A lazy day can be spent on the beautiful beach at Royan or for something a bit more energetic a visit to the theme park or explore Crazannes with its stone sculptures and guided tours.
