hello all !
I'm living on a farm in the south west of France , close to 1 of the "prettiest villages " in the dordogne. If you love nature, animals and good food, my place is the place to be.
I've been living in this area for more than 20 years, we're known for our ducks and foie gras, and I have my own canning business ; so if you're interested in good food, organic meat, and farmlife, you're welcome to share part of my world.
LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH BUILDING EXPERIENCE
Hello all !
Although the restoring of the main house is 'done' (there is always more to do, it's from the 16/18th century), i would like to transform the barn in an open living space : a fourth wall and the windows will be done by local craftsman, but will need a lot of help with ceiling and insulation, flooring, electricity, plumbing etc, so all people with building experience are more than welcome !
Spring 2018 (february through april) let's prepare the summer : repair some fences, redo some of the livingspace for the pigs (outside job, i raise them in the woods !), weeding, work on the deck around the pool, varnish shutters...)
In november/december (2018), we're canning our ducks and pigs : if you want to learn and help making paté, blackpudding, confit..., be my guest !
So depending on your skills and the weather, there will always be something to do/going on !
See you around ?

You'll be staying in the mainhouse, maximum 2people/room, bathrooms need to be shared ; there are double and single beds.
Breakfast will be served around 8.30 A.M, lunch will be the "help yourself style" (the fridge is well stocked), and I promise you a homecooked meal every night, usually with organic meat raised on the farm : we have chickens, cows, sheep and duck.
Vegetarians/vegan people are welcome to use my kitchen, i'm sorry, can't handle 2 or 3 different meals/evening.
Remember you're on a farm, so countryside ! The nearest village is 3K down the road, closest airport is Bergerac, 35 minutes. We have a trainstation close by, you can enjoy visiting the nearby historic villages and castles.
