    Description

    We are in the process of renovation - our Charentaise farmhouse and barn and fully modernised and we now turn our attention to final aspects of construction an 'making good'. We are in a beautiful position overlooking a valley and it is completely private ( at the end of our own lane). It is south facing and a real suntrap in the summer months. The accommodation is of high quality - you will be our guest here!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in rural France (Charente), so many medieval villages, close to Limoges, Angouleme and the Lacs de Haute Charente. Easy access to Bordeaux and the coast. We are filmakers and screenwriters with a keen interest in theatre cinema and Literature. The barn in which we live is comfortable and fully renovated - private bedroom and facilities for our visitors. I am also a teacher of English to undergraduate level .

    We wish to build a (2 car) car park on our land and make good the garden afterwards. This will involve moving hardcore (approx 80 metres) , laying on CP site and levellling in preparation for gravel. Possibility for other general (non skilled) labour in outbuildings. General garden maintenance help also.
