    Description

    We split our time between the UK and SW France. We have a 200 year old Maison Bourgeoise in the Dordogne and maintenance and development of the house and garden is an ongoing commitment . We live in a beautiful rural location about 1km from the nearest village but within easy reach of many of the fantastic sights of the Dordogne. There is a bit of a menagerie - 5 cats and a dog!!! If you are allergic you might struggle!!

    There aren't many nicer places to be in the summer than SW France!! The weather and lifestyle is fantastic. Not much English is spoken by the French locals so it is a fantastic place to either start out with your French or brush up on things.
    We have wonderful weekly markets, fetes de la musique , lakes & rivers and many other beautiful places.

    in 2020 I will be building a patio garden on one side of the property. I have laid the concrete foundation but now need to slab it out and landscape it. Some lifting and laying of patio slabs required plus some digging and movement of stones for retaining walls.
