    Looking for assistance February 2019

    We have a beautiful watermill situated on the banks of the River Dronne, in the Dordogne, surrounded by 20 acres of land. We need extra hands to help with clearing river and forest. Only couples please.

    We moved to France from South Africa in 2003. It took four years to complete the renovations to the watermill. We have transformed it into a luxury, well-being retreat : there are 3 apartments which we rent out to guests, the Mill house was transformed into our own house.

    We like to share our philosophy on how we respect and treat Nature and the environment, how we are using Biodynamic methods for growing our vegetables and how important it is to eat regional/organic produce. We like to have fun too.
