    Description

    Hi, we are Sim and Josie and we live in a lovely traditional farm house in the Dordogne. Sim is a musician/improviser and is about to start a new coffee in our local town and I am a keen forager and wild-crafter and am currently studying herbalism (both traditional and magical). We have three beautiful children, Max (24), Soloman (17) and Sasha (15). Our boys have now spread their wings and are living in the Uk while our daughter is still at home with us enjoying her teenage years, learning french and attending a local school. As well as spending much loved time at home we enjoy days out exploring, walking, foraging and picnicking in our beautiful surroundings. We also love spending summer evenings outside sitting round the fire with good friend, food, drink and music. We are looking for workawayers to help with our permaculture style veggie garden, daily maintenance, painting, house cleaning, general gardening , wood cutting, D.I.Y etc. We offer a warm, relaxed, laid back, fun-loving family environment with plenty of friendly conversation and fresh, wholesome home cooked meals. If you would like to join in for a bit please don't hesitate to get in touch.
