  • Beschreibung


    Bonjour, we are an American couple living in a small Medieval village in the beautiful Charante. We've worked and lived in several European countries over the last 40 years and love traveling and making new friends. Our sons are 31 and 29, one in Estonia and one in South Africa .. We are friendly, outgoing and enjoy talking to younger generations and learning new things.. As Admiral Kirk once said in Star Trek, "young minds, new ideas".. We retired last year and now live in a typical 1970s French house in a lovely, overgrown garden. We've had a lot of work in the house done, just some painting and decorating left to do, but we have such a large garden that needs work. And I'm not a gardener.. My problem... I need motivation.... It's hard for me to get motivated and get things done in the garden and house..I'd rather read or sit with our cats.. but I can't sit around doing nothing letting others work. We have 4 spoiled rotten cats who rule our home, but we do keep them out of the apartment. We'll happily take you on excursions or point you in the right direction. If you want a chance to transform our overgrown garden into a well ordered paradise, come do a workaway with us.

    I love speaking Italian and Spanish and need to keep it up or I'll forget them now that we don't live there anymore. I'm also trying to improve my French now that we live in France.
