    Description

    I recently moved from the UK to Poitiers-Charente in France. My cottage is in a little village near Ruffec. It's in the countryside but has so much around it within easy reach. The house is in good overall condition, just needs some tweaks of generally small DIY. I have a funny very confident cat and two young brother dogs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a beautiful area. Lots of history and fascinating places to visit all around. Stunning churches and chateaux dotted about. Excellent cycling. Rail links to the whole of France. Poitiers within a 40 minute drive. Angouleme also.
    Cultural activities abound - food markets, broccantes, concerts, festivals.. There are Medieval and Roman sites nearby. You can attend history talks and local rambles. Limoges and Bordeaux are within an hour.

    My main project is a mini campsite just down the road from me - maximum 4 pitches. I need to create a COMPOST TOILET and a SOLAR SHOWER - hoping you will have some experience or be confident we can do this ! I have some friends around to help clear the land.if this project isn’t ready then just general light DIY in house and garden would be great.
