    Description

    Hello and thank you for stopping by! We are, Simon and Dickon, a middle aged but young at heart couple living in a pretty and fun but rugby obcessed (!) village (with a pub!) in South West France, 40 minutes south of Bergerac (and its airport) and 1 hour 40 minutes north of Toulouse.

    We just bought another field and barn behind our home of 15 years and we'd like people to help us with heavy gardening / landscaping plus wall and fence work. The field and hedges / trees are a total mess (to be honest) so we really need people who enjoy VERY HARD physical work outside.

    In return, you can enjoy a newly renovated en-suite room in our 300 year old stone barn, and take advantage of everything the village and area has to offer, especially if you like rugby! There's lots to do and we'd be happy to show you around. We love cooking so you'll be well fed. We have a 7 y/o very friendly black Lab / German Shepherd cross called Oli so this assignment would probably best suit someone comfortable with dogs. You're welcome to use an off-road bike (we have spare helmets and kit) and enjoy the amazing trails or of course there are running trails.

    Please do 'shout out' with questions. PLEASE note that the dates on our calendar are obviously dependent upon government COVID 19 restrictions on travel being lifted.
