    Hello there!
    It would be great if you would like to come and enjoy staying in a lovely 1820's restored stone farmhouse in exchange for helping me with my large garden over-looking fields and forest on the edge of a very quiet and peaceful hamlet in rural North Burgundy.

    Apart from general gardening, since I can't wield a chain saw or a hedge cutter I'd be very grateful if you could help me with that. I also have in mind a DIY garden project .

    The house is 1h30 south of Paris, in the Yonne (Puisaye-Forterre) district not far from the mediaeval town of JOIGNY which has a train station, and from where I can pick you up if you don't have a car.

    As a native English speaker I can help anyone wishing to improve their English and if you would like to brush up on your French then there will be plenty of opportunity at the weekends.

    When
    We love the theatre and cinema - so if we're going you're welcome to come along
    We love to dance at live music concerts in local bars/restos - so if you'd like to come you'd be most welcome

    Unterkunft

    There is a ground floor bedroom which is a nice, and large 22m² (or 66ft²) room with 2 single beds, also equipped with table and chairs, cupboards, sofa and soft furnishings. The bedroom is south-facing and looks out directly over the garden with a separate bathroom across the corridor where the ground floor lavatory is.

    In your leisure time, there are lovely walks around the area, and if you have a car or some sort of transport, there are mediaeval towns and villages to visit, plus the vineyards of Chabilis, Coulanges, etc.

    There's always the possibility you might like to just read, write or paint/photograph a beautiful local scene ... or simply be in the garden!

    If you like Live Concerts, we sometimes go to free pop/rock/blues concerts in bars and restaurants at the weekend.

    If you like Art, we sometimes go to preview/vernissage evenings at the various art galleries around - but of course it depends on their dates.

    Sometimes we go to the Cinema (although it'll probably be in French) or the theatre, and we also have Netflix.
