  • Description


    Hello, my wife (Florence, 62) and I (Alain, 69) are potters live in a beautiful countryside, ( surrounded by forest) in the South West of France. I am also a photographer. We both work at home in our workshops. We live with a nice dog and two cats. Our 2 daughters are in their twenties, they are students and they do not live at home anymore.

    Most of our friends are artists or in a circle of organic attitude people (bio dynamic wine, and so). Weather is hot in the summer. Closest village for shopping (market) is at 10 km. You will find easily all the information you need on Dordogne an attractive and touristic, region .

    We are looking for someone who loves plants and nature and who is used to gardening. We need someone who would like to take care of our garden for 2-3 weeks in Spring : digging, weeding, mowing, trimming... We can host only one person at a time.

    You will enjoy living in the middle of nature, especially if you're interested in animals and forests. Dordogne is a beautiful and touristic région (castles, Lascaux caves, wine...). You will live an artist life in the forrest and tastes French cooking. Dordogne is a great place for photographers. If you are experienced in pottery, you could use our workshop.
