We are an English couple, Liz and Dave, who have been living here since 2000. We have two cats and a dog. Our home used to be the village schoolhouse and we have been working on it since moving in. Now in our late sixties, we would welcome some help with the garden - Liz was a keen gardener but having had surgery twice on her spine in recent years, things have got a bit out of hand in the garden. Our house is situated in full countryside, between two mediaeval villages in Lot et Garonne. Liz is vegetarian but Dave is not, so there is always choice at mealtimes (and he is a very good cook!)
Gardening work will involve cutting back shrubs,rooting out brambles and weeding flower beds (no digging).
Help in the house just involves light housework.
English, French, some German
Double bedroom in main house.
Plenty of historic villages locally, and we are about one hour from the Dordogne river with its chateaux and ancient sites.
Please bear in mind that we are 8kms from the nearest village and there is no local public transport. Having your own transport would be a huge advantage if you wish to do local sightseeing, but of course we would be happy to do 'tourism' on free weekends.
