  • Description


    My name is Robbert, I'am a dutch artist, photographer and former teacher on an art academy in the Netherlands. Recently performing painting as well. I live in France for 10 years near the city Montignac in the Dodorgne ( Perigord Noir ), where I bought an old barn and a near by house. I transformed the barn in a very nice atelier and a very comfortable living place, all surrounded by a cosy and nice garden. The total surface of the area is 8000 m2. The place is beautiful located, not far from the river Vézère and lots of other beauty spots. The nearest cities are Montignac, Terrasson, Brive la Gaillarde, Sarlat, Perigieux. There are many places of interest, like castles caves with prehistoric paintings, ancient historic villages, spectacular landscapes,....etc. I need help for gardening and general works in and around the house.
