We are a relaxed couple who are in need a hand with various building works and to also help with the finishing touches of our little house. My partner and I are happy to help with teaching any new building skills where necessary. We are situated in a small village but only 10 minutes away from a town with bars and restaurants and also main train links to Angouleme, Paris, Cognac and the coast. Wifi is available
DIY and building projects
We are situated in the heart of the vines although there is a small town nearby (Chateauneuf sur Charente) with basic amenities but a main link train will take you in 15 minutes to larger towns such as Angouleme and Cognac. Both bustling and cosmopolitan. I am happy to help with learning French if needed.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Help with general building projects. Skills taught at the same time so no previous experience necessary.
Some painting and decoration would be required together with a bit of garden maintenance.
You will have your own double room but with a shared bathroom. Wifi is of course available . Meals will be provided unless of course you choose to eat out.
Nearby larger towns such as Angouleme and Cognac offer a more lively atmosphere with plenty of bars and restaurants ad attractions. There is also a direct line to the coast (La Rochelle and Royan) which are beautiful.
