    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can assist with learning french - or spanish or english - together we can do painting drawing cutting glueing, using miscellaneous different materials, we could do alot of manual tasks, and transform loads of things, indoors or out! I have the space, experience & am full of ideas, there is amazing scenery around Salignac, there are alot of local attractions nearby, we're surrounded by places like Lascaux, Les Eyzies, Rocamadour, Laroque-Gageac, Beynac, Marqueyssac, Eyrignac, Castelnaud, Padirac, Montignac, Brive etc etc...

    What else ...

    If you look up Sarlat-la-Canéda, or do a Tripadvisor "things to do" search, you'll see what an amazing town it is - ideally you have your own vehicle, as public transport is "non-existant" here, but it's also possible for us to lend you one, tbd - there is so much to discover here - you will come away having found a region you'll never forget, if ever you choose to leave, that is ;-) ...
