  • Description


    We came from London and created a very special place to stay in S West France near St Emilion.
    In London we owned a restaurant and cooking and taking care of people's culinary needs is second nature.

    It is all going very well and even though we are not young any more we find that there is a new project or 2 on the horizon.

    We would like to find a happy, healthy person who would like to spend a month or so...
    The main aim is to turn this beautiful garden into something magical....bring fresh ideas and skills to create an
    amazing space.

    Jonathon likes playing guitar and if you have one bring it along!

    May consider 2 friends.....
    On offer is a bedroom with an ensuite private bathroom.
    Very ample meals and lots of free time to explore the region.
    We are very happy with 4/ 5 hrs per day to work with us....
    with weekends to yourself.

    The area is a famous region for growing vines and reducing amazing wine.
    It would be easy to learn about making wine.

    We will be able to take you to vineyards where you can and possibly help with the vendage...AND
    celebrate the harvest of the grapes.

    We can help you learn about the cooking of the region by teaching how we cook both traditional and modern French cuisine.....and take you to the best produce markets of the region.

    We will send you away with some details of how to cook your fav dishes of our area.
    You will learn something about the interior design styles of our region....especially ours!
    Shabby, chateau Chic.

    And take you to the famous Bricants of Rauzin to look at all the things which you can buy to
    create your own collection.

    Yes, it is a beautiful region with bastides, memories of the battle of Castilon and the splendour
    of Bordeaux and it's parks, monuments and lovely little shops and restaurants.

    Wonderful buildings of all shapes and sizes dot the countryside......from Girondines to quant farm houses.

    And there are lots of people living around and about from all walks of life.....aristisans and artistes.....lots of people to discover.
