I have had five years experience with workaways whilst living in Catalunya Spain
I now have a new project in central France - a beautiful house but the garden and barns have long been neglected and are overgrown - who knows what we'll find under there!
Looking ideally for a couple happy to work on their own initiative - room in the house if course, or if privacy needed loads of space in the barn!
Meals and board provided in return for 5 hours per day
I live in a small hamlet with no shops but the nearest town with bars etc is only 5kms away
Plenty of room to park your own transport
Nearest train station is Argenton sur Creuse or La Souterrain
Nearest airport Limoges - three quarters of an hour away
DIY and building projects
My immediate neighbours are French but there are also a surprising number of English speaking people in the village and the surrounding areas
It is an agricultural community- mainly cattle - and the surrounding country is full of ancient woodlands and many lakes and rivers
Happy to explore with you on days off - I'm still learning too!
Mainly garden based - there is an area to be cleared that's totally overgrown
New guttering needs installing - I'm losing out on saving so much rainwater!
Minimum 7 days stay please
ideally a couple or two friends as the work is easier with two pairs of hands - i have 1 double spare room and another with bunk beds
We have to share the bathroom
The commune is small (population approx 70) with no public transport
Happy to taxi to local towns in free time
Plenty of parking for your own vehicle
Willing to be flexible on the hours worked to enable the workaways to have more than 2 days off
No children or pets
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
More than two
4-5 hours per day but totally flexible to suit (max25 hours a week)
