    News Flash!
    I am currently looking for someone to stay for a longer term visit. At least a month, preferably a lot longer! Either one person to live in the house and help with housework, cooking and child care, or a couple, to live in the mobile home, where the partner helps with maintenance and repairs.
    I also need a builder, roofer, rock waller, electrician, plumber, someone who's ace at paperwork and anyone with technical winery experience. These can be shorter term, but preferably at least two weeks. Super organisers, lifestyle coaches and yoga teachers are also on my current wish list!!

    I am currently trying to save an organic vineyard and run down farm in the Cahors region of the idyllic Lot valley.
    Originally from the UK, I left the rat race for a dream life nearly 13 years ago, optimistically buying a project with lots of potential! I have now come to the conclusion that I have ”bitten off more than I can chew” and need some major help!
    Aside from running the vineyard, I am renovating and extending the ancient, but very run down stone farmhouse and winery buildings and growing our own fruit and veg (not to mention housework, family stuff, animal care and the dreaded paperwork)!
    We are a very busy, active family with lots of noise, mess, kids animals and visitors!
    Our location is stunningly beautiful, a joy for those looking for beauty and tranquility, and perfectly placed for those seeking adventure, history, sports, or culture. The Lot has pretty much everything and we love it here.
    WE SPEAK ENGLISH in the home, unless we have French guests. So if you are coming to France to improve your French, we may not be your best choice!

    We are 5km from the picturesque, medieval town of Puy l’Eveque, on the beautiful Lot river (swimming/canoeing/boat trips) and 5kms from the bustling market town of Prayssac. If you drive and can come in your own car, that would be useful, if not, we can lend you bicycles to explore the area. By car, Cahors (medieval city) 30 minutes, Fumel (Chateau de Bonaguil) 20 mins, Toulouse 2 hours, Bordeaux 2 hours. The Lot and the Dordogne are packed with a huge variety of touristic, historical and geological attractions.
    This area has plenty of events, of all kinds, but it is not somewhere to go if you want to go clubbing and wild partying!
    Smoking outdoors only.
