    Beschreibung

    We are Nick and Judy, a couple with grown up children and we live in the South of the Dordogne area, situated between 3 beautiful old bastide towns. Our nearest town is Bergerac. The property is the remains of a 17th Century hamlet. There are 3 houses, two barns and a swimming pool. The grounds consist of 26 acres – woodland, meadow, vegetable patch, walnut grove and a small lake. We moved here from London 10 years ago and during that time have restored the 3 houses, installed photovoltaic panels and put in eco-friendly sanitation systems including a reedbed. We have a dog, cat, some sheep, kune kune pigs, ducks and chickens.

    Arbeit

    Potential projects for this year include:
    •wood clearance and management -the aim being to be self sufficient in firewood but also to gain access to woodland that has not been managed for about 50 years
    •stone wall repair/maintenance
    •plant propagating
    •fruit and veg growing, harvesting and preserving


    We find it best to work with couples or groups of friends rather than with a workawayer travelling on their own.

    Life here is never boring and is characterised by good food, good wine, good company and lots of sunshine – at least for March through to November .
    We welcome anyone who feels they can contribute to the projects we have in hand either by offering muscle power, relevant knowledge and experience or simply a willingness to muck in. French or English lessons can be offered in return.
