We are Richard and Lee living in a small village called Villebois Lavalette, This is our 4th year living here. Like most people moving to France we have bought a property which needs a bit of TLC. We are steadily getting on with the project.
We are currently both having French lessons which we hope will help with further integration into French life.
DIY and building projects
Both Lee and Myself have completely no idea about gardening and we have two small gardens that need a bit of a make over nothing too hard as we have done most of the weed and rubbish removal. So we looking for help to plan the gardens and advice on how to look after them.
We are in the throws of decorating too so any help there is handy an extra pair of hands! If anybody has a command of the French language that would be a bonus for us to help with our learning.
Your accommodation is a self contained studio, consisting of a lounge with kitchen area ideal for making light meals. A bedroom area with double bed. Your own shower room with sink and toilet. The studio has heating if needed. Also English TV and Wifi access.
In the village there is a super market and two Boulangerie,s a Restaurant a pizza place and 2 bars. We are 30 mins drive from the city of Angouleme but there is only 1 bus a day to the city. You can mange without a car but would benefit if you had one.
