  • Description


    We are a retired Dutch couple, and moved about 10 years ago. Our place is in the french countrysite, on the Dordogne/Lot border, together with our 2 dogs, cat and 2 horses.
    We live the simpel life, but do love good food and a glass of wine.
    Our house is heathed by a woodstove, which provides us with warmth, hot water and floorheathing. We owe about 3ha of land, including a parcel of trees.
    Last winter, Jacob almost got under a tree, so we decided this year to arrange a lumberjack to cut some trees, and we do the rest. So we definitly need help in cutting branches, and pilling up wood.

    Enjoy our gite with fantastic views, our 2 golden retrievers, and our company..we are Dutch, living for over 10 years in France, so we can tell you all about cultural differences, work in France, and how to get along with it.
    Love to take you to local markets, go on a ride with my 2 mares, or just walk through the forest with the dogs.

  • Help


    My husband is 73 and needs help with collecting wood for our winter supply. The trees will be cut down, but we need to chop up everything, and that is quite some task.
    We also have 2 horses who could benefit (if you like) from some rides through the forest. Our 2 dogs (golden retrievers) love a good stroll too!
