    My name is Deanne & my husband Richard are both living the French dream. We are Aussies from Byron Bay Australia and now live in the Bordeaux region. We are looking for mature aged 30+ volunteers. We have 2 smalls dogs and therefore cannot accommodate anyone with pets sorry.
    We are now live on YouTube so we would prefer people who aren't camera shy. 😉

    We have recently purchased this beautiful grand Maison de Maître in the Bordeaux wine region.
    Bordeaux is famous for their wine. Literally I believe there is no such thing as a bad wine.

    Our primary reason for this exchange is to enjoy the company of others while renovating our home. The love of food and wine is important along with some language skill in French or keen to learn.
    We will provide learning experience for our workaways. Both my husband and I have renovation experience and hope to share this knowledge with our workaways.

    My husband background is in electrician and myself work in IT. We love dogs and animals. We have two small dogs who are very well trained and friendly. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our travel stories and hearing about yours from around the world.

    You will be helping my husband and I and given instructions, training and assistance where needed. We have many jobs to do such, preparing rooms for painting and decorating, making curtains, art projects, panelling, cleaning and cooking. We need assistance with cooking and cleaning so experience in this area is preferred.
    We take the weekends off to explore the region, visiting brocantes, markets and local events. We are located in a small active village surrounded by vineyards. We truly love this area of France as it took 5 years to find our beautiful home.

    The gardens needs some care.
    With some help from you we hope to turn this beautiful house into our dream home.

    For the big jobs we will be hiring professional artisans to do the renovation works.
    We are 15 minutes from the UNESCO Village of Saint Emilion.

    Come join us for some rejuvenation of this home and enjoy good food and wine.
