    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The nature here is beautiful, lovely pittoresk villages, quiet living. There are 2 lakes, at 8km from where we live, where you can swim, do watersports, horseback-riding, enjoy nature.
    Angoulême and Limoges are interesting villages to visit. There are also castles and musea to visit.
    We like to exchange experiences with other people so we can learn from one another. We learned a lot ourselves with the restauration of our house.

    We need help in the garden, planting flowers & bushes, hedge trimming, expand the vegetable garden. We try to do it as ecological as possible.

    We are restoring our house, so some help with painting the house, repairing & painting furniture is very welcome. A carpenter or a handy person to help us with the restoration of the doors and some woodwork, ...someone who wants to use his creativity ;) Every season we have some small or larger projects that need to be done, so there is a variety of tasks.
    Teaching languages or music to our daughter.
    Someone who is good with computers to improve our website and blog.
    The hours are flexible.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a family with a little daughter of 10 who is homeschooled.
    We moved to France to escape from a stressful life and now we try to live in a different and relaxed way.
    Living on the countryside gives us the opportunity to enjoy life more and to experiment another way of living.
    We are easy people and we enjoy meeting people from other countries, other cultures. We also love music, good food and we appreciate the simple things of life.
    We love restoring our house, working in the garden, enjoying nature. We have some small animals : cats, rabbits and some chickens.
    Anybody who is looking for a quiet, peaceful area should come over here. The nature is beautiful in all seasons, there is a lot of sunshine, living is easy. Nice area for cyclists and walkers. There are lovely villages to visit and explore.
    We are happy to show you around in free time.
