  • Description


    Hello friends.
    I am Paul, living in a large building along a chestnut tree forest.
    Renovating for many years, I wish now to go further and create back a production tool in this old farm.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My home is quiet, peaceful, and its surroundings are very protected, just aside Dordogne valley.
    I consider culture as a set of social rituals : as a meal, telling stories or crafting... Museums and visits are not so far though.
    The region is quite touristic in summer, far less populated in winter. But the diversity of the land has been preserved and its nature is still wealthy.
    I can show you places there that others visitors will never see.

  • Help


    I could need help for many different things.
    Gardening here takes several aspects.
    Foresting, cutting, shoveling, seeding, collecting fruits, flowers, mushrooms, following seasons.
    The house will always have tasks to offer, and I still have renovation details to finish.
    I dont need specially a crafter's help. Each work will be defined by what we can create, because the most of i have to do cannot be done alone.
    Every will is welcome, as shovels and saws can be handled.
    These tasks are for good physical conditions (knees, arms and lungs) and knowledge of living.

    I have three large beds in a wide room for hosting. The house itself is quite large.
    There is hot water, electricity, wood heating, internet connection...
    Number of volunteers is limited by the nature of current tasks and possibilities for hosting : groups of several peoples can be hosted only in those conditions.
    Trucks under reserve. No tent accepted.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lot department has very few public transports. I can help you organise your trip.
    I've already hosted several people in different circumstances. I remember living with seventeen roommates long time ago.
    I work in the next "city", at home on my free time ; and expect from workawayers not necessarily abilities, just patience, curiosity and energy for nearly 3h/d.
