    Beschreibung

    I am a builder with 20yrs experience restoring historic buildings. We are currently at the final stages of restoration / renovation of a small Château 10mins walk from the centre of Figeac 46100. I am 38 and live here with my wife and Family and our dog Harry (a miniature, very well behaved, Labradoodle). We have spare accommodation separate from the main house with its own entrance - a medium sized suite, that has just been renovated to a very high standard, with ensuite facility including a large 'walk in' shower. We have good internet, a range of musical instruments (including a baby grand piano), fitness equipment (including a peloton bike), newly fitted kitchen and plenty of space so good for people that like to have their own personal space in the evenings. I am beginning to learn French and would be happy to teach some English in exchange for some French. We have good local facilities and private small woodland. The local market is essential and is still running every Saturday throughout the confinement/lockdown.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Traditional restoration skills, working with natural building materials, learning decorating preparation skills, gardening/landscaping and working as part of a small renovation team (2/3 of us in total), working as part of a smaller team (as apposed to larger renovation teams) enables skills to be picked up and developed quicker. I am beginning to learn French and would be happy to teach some English alongside improving my French.
