    We moved to France 3 years ago, although we have been coming and going for the past 10 years. The 'Grange was renovated, which is where we have been living but work on the main house came to a 'standstill'.

    We are English and live here on edge the Brenne National Park, with our lovely Labrador' . Our children are now in their 30's, our daughter runs her own business in the UK and our son teaches wherever in the world life takes him. We are open and friendly.

    This area is all about 'Nature' great for bird watching, horse riding, cycling, kayaking, the river Creuse runs through the town. If you wanted a busier time, on your days off, Paris is only 2 hours away by train, or you can go further south.

    We would be happy to drive & collect you from the station, if you arrive without a car, although having your own transport is preferable so that you can be independant.

    You will be living in a rather 'untouched' area of France with a slow pace of life so you can embrace that or choose, in your free time to explore other areas, which is easy to do as we live only 15 minutes from the main North/South Autoroute. We have friends of other nationalities for you to meet & communicate with too.

    We have now experienced our first time with volunteers and can say that they were so hardworking, always willing and happy, that they have set the benchmark for future 'workawayers' We would like whoever comes to have some experience or enthusiasm & to be prepared to work for 5 hours a day, 5 days a week, after which the time is yours to enjoy.

    You will be given a cooked lunch on all of your working days & a comfortable 'home' of your own, during your stay, so you can be independant. Your house is just around the corner.
    To really appreciate the area having your own transport is beneficial. The closest train station is 9km from us.
