    Description

    Hi, I’m Sophie,

    I’m half French, half English and live in the countryside in the Dordogne, south west France, close to the river, where you can swim and canoe.

    I have a very affectionate big fat black cat called Spook, and a friendly horse called Mousse.

    I spend a lot of time doing creative stuff, such as making soap, redecorating my house and need a bit of help with my various projects.

    * No availability left for July and August 2020 - currently arranging September/October*

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It’s a spectacularly beautiful part of France with so much to see and do.

    You could explore the many castles, swim in or kayak on the river, visit ancient caves, discover the amazing local food and cycle around the local villages, many of which are World Heritage sites.

    I am perfectly bilingual in both English and French so can offer language help in both languages.

    I’m looking for energetic persons who love exploring the countryside, peace and quiet, and animals.

    I need some general help with my garden, housework and cooking, and hanging out with my two kids (both over the age of 10).

    I always need help in my soap workshop wrapping soaps, preparing soap making etc.

    As of 01/07/2020, I am also looking to fix up a room, painting, cleaning, decorating. Possibly some woodwork, possibly some plastering.

    Best suited to a couple or very independent single explorer.
