    We are a couple contemplating the next chapter of life and three years ago we sold up our family home in the UK to buy a beautiful, old manor house in South West France.

    We love France and we both love cooking and entertaining so we promise to feed you well and make you feel very much at home. A yoga studio is on hand for stretching out after a few hours' work or the pool to take a dip once we are opened up and ready to go! You can sketch or paint en plein air or curl up with a book from our well stocked shelves. For the more active we have a great Voie Verte for a local run, walk or cycle.

    We have lots of gardening to assist with, moving building materials and assisting with maintenance projects including the preparation and painting of windows and shutters and the opening up of our swimming pool ! We have a large, separate studio apartment which is all newly finished and ready for workaway guests. Much of the work to date has been done by ourselves and friends and Martin (with a design background) is super practical and has a pretty good DIY skill set, turning his hand to everything and anything.

    We love the Chalosse countryside in Les Landes. The locals are friendly, the weather is mild and we are just an hour away from beautiful beaches and a couple of hours away from the Pyrenees.
    We are equal distance from Biarritz or Lourdes airport and our nearest train station is in Dax.

    We would love to Zoom or Facetime with interested parties who want a complete change of scene and a cultural exchange for just a couple of weeks or longer.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We would love to share our knowledge of the area and the culture and we can also offer conversational French besides helping guests with their English. I was a primary school teacher in a previous life and an ESL teacher. I take weekly French classes online and would love both languages to be a focus of this cultural exchange.

  • Unterkunft


    Dedicated studio apartment with own kitchen and shower room. We can provide two or three single beds or a super king for a couple. All meals will be provided with the hosts in the main house or outdoor kitchen and dining. One of us is almost veggie and the other a firm carnivore so happy to adapt to dietary requirements.
