  • Description


    We are Kate, Keith, Rosie, Olly and Minette our two dogs and cat. We are English and have lived in France full time for the past 15 years. We speak French as well as English. We have almost finished renovating our Stone farmhouse. However, there is always more to do and we always have more ideas than time. We are currently building a large greenhouse against a stone, barn wall, largely from recycled materials. We want to build a thermal mass stove inside it. We always have plenty of work in the garden, we use a no dig system as much as possible. We need help with some small building projects as well as decorating, with natural materials. We offer good food and a good standard of accommodation. We have just become vegetarians in order to reduce our impact on global warming.
