  • Description


    Some two years we bought a Domaine in Casseneuil, France: 4 gites, 4 safari tents, one gipsy trailer, 4 studios, 2 large granges, one chambre d’hotes, 21 ha of land / space of which 11 ha of forrest / wood. A tennis ground and a nice pool.

    Loads of beautiful space, views, quietness.

    We find ourselves in what is called the Tuscany of France.
    Beautiful landscape with many castles and bastides. Golf, carp fishing, swimming, canooing, horse-backriding, tennis. It is all here or nearby.

    We rent out holiday appartments and safari / glamping tents. However, the main part of our life here consists of many odd jobs, maintenance, painting, gardening, renovations, work in the wood etc. I also like to re-start the bio-vegetable garden that existed here years ago, but has been neglected by the previous owner.

    Come live with us and help. Gardening, cooking, DIY, building the coolest treehouse, building a garden path, restoring a children playground, building our own vegetable greenhouse, etc. etc.
