  • Description


    We are a couple in our mid 40's who moved to France 2 1/2 years ago to live the good life. We live in a rural area on the border of Haute Vienne and Creuse close to La Souterraine. We set up a small cattery business which keeps us busy and are renovating our farm house and out-building. Previously we worked (Alison) for a large company and (Ray) ran a small antiques business.

  • Help


    We are looking for help and assistance sometimes with the garden and other times with building work. This is mainly labour but if you have specific interests we could work around your requirements/expertise. This year (2013) we aim to extend into the barn and create a utility and lounge as well as continue with the main house. If you fancy your hand trying new things you maybe able to learn some of the basics. We have about 2 acres of land which includes a kitchen veg plot which needs constant attention and if you have experience in gardening we would more than welcome you.
