  • Description


    We are any English couple who've been living in the most beautiful part of the Dordogne for the past 14 years. We work as musicians so are often working unsociable hours and would love someone to keep the dogs out of trouble while we're out!

  • Help


    We would love to find someone to look after our 3 dogs (Border Collie and 2 x Gryffons) and our two horses (feeding and mucking out).We also run a food truck for weddings, festivals and local markets, so there may be opportunities to occasionally earn a bit during your stay if you like! In between times it'd be great to have some help in the garden...

  • Accommodation


    We have a pretty French 3 bedroom cottage with 3 acres of land set in a quiet Hamlet and offer a double room and access to all areas! Within walking distance of 2 small villages it is slap bang in the middle of the stunning Dordogne Valley so has easy access to villages such as Castelnaud, Beynac, La Roque Gageac, Daglan and Sarlat. Loads of activities close-by include canoeing, horse riding, hot air ballooning, cycle routes etc....

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a rural idyll in a region that is very popular with tourists. Walk out of our front door to fabulous walks through the fields or forest. Sample the beautiful local produce at weekly markets in Domme on Thursdays, St. Pompon on Fridays, Sarlat, Belves & Villefranche on Saturdays and St. Cyprien, Daglan or Cazals on Sundays. If you're here in summer you can't beat a day canoeing down the Dordogne river or hot air ballooning over the Dordogne Valley!
