  • Description


    I live in the Vienne France ,the heart of beautiful unspoilt French countryside . I have an old farm with a beautiful garden which we are slowly restoring , it’s at the heart of our projet and has over three hundred English Roses .

    Food is a big part of our lives here and a great inspiration for me as a cook . My partner and I were lucky to have a good skill set for restoring a house and garden , he is by trade an electrician but can ably do most building trades as well as fix just about anything mechanical ! , I originally trained in fashion but went on to a degree in interior design then specialised in restoration working on projects for the National trust and English Heritage .
    So we have experience and can cover most basis and are looking for like minded people to come and enjoy our project.

    If you have any building or wood work skills , we are building Shepherds Huts from scratch and I am slowly but surely restoring the garden to make a place for the Shepherds Huts to be , so knowledge of plants and there care is important .

    We have a small but perfectly formed room in the house for 2021 and a little caravan in the garden for next year 2022. I am a good cook and part of my business, So I’m happy for a Workawayer to eat and cook with us and I am always testing recipes so the food is fun .
