  • Description

    Description

    We live in the Charente, in the South West of France and would love some help, diverse requirements.

    We are a lively English family who moved here more than 23 years ago and still have lots of exciting projects to do. Our youngest is still living at home and has just finished his final year at school. Adrian has always worked in aviation, however we are both working together on an exciting project in Angoulême: spa, yoga/pilates, alternative medicine centre amongst other things. We have lots of animals, including 2 naughty dogs, sheep, goats, hens.

    Hello workawayers, predominantly working on a light building project (plaster board and painting), always things to do on the gardening front. There could be some cooking if someone was interested as team support. :) Actually it is quite variable. Looking forward to hearing from you

    What else ...

    We live in a beautiful part of France, in the centre of a very culturally rich area in the south-west.
    Close to a station and airport you can get to us easily and hop on a train or a bus to go and discover Angoulême (close-by), Bordeaux, Cognac, Aubeterre, La Rochelle

    You can visit numerous sites of architectural interest, Atlantic beaches an hour an half away and a river beach 20 mins away, markets, tour cognac distilleries and bordeaux wine chateaux, one of the most famous monolithic churches in france is near and easy to visit, Futuroscope theme park and many more wonderful things to do and events to get involved in for the more mobile or adventurous.

    When staying with us you can go on walks, use our tennis-court, swimming-pool, relax, spend time with the animals walk them with me if you wish. We are a busy and enthusiastic family who love to meet people and have fun but are also hard-working and expect a good work ethic so that the visit is mutually beneficial. Hours are always flexible around visits and trips that you may plan and where we can we are on hand to drop off to buses, trains give advise, play cards etc
