We are a couple from New Zealand that have recently bought a house in the South West of France, between Bordeaux and Toulouse. We travel to buy antiques for our business in New Zealand and stay in the house for 3 months a year to store the furniture and work on the house to get it to a standard to rent out at some stage.
DIY and building projects
We want to offer people an experience working and living in France. Staying in and working on a beautiful house full of character. Living in a medium size village and enjoying the ways of life from vege Markets, biking, sightseeing, speaking French, enjoying all aspects of the French culture,
We need able-bodied people to help us fix up and restore our beautiful townhouse in France. There's lots to do, re-wiring, building new bathrooms, painting, tiling and gardening. We are a creative couple and our house has beautiful original hand painted walls and ceilings along with other unique character features. We are ideally looking for people who enjoy and appreciate these details.
We offer accommodation and food in exchange for 5 hours of work per day in our house in France. A beautiful large double bedroom is available for couples and singles. We are vegetarian but you are welcome to use our barbeque to cook meat if you need to.
We are in the center of the village with all amenities available walking or biking ( available). We also would offer transport when we are traveling to other areas, Bordeaux, Toulouse and surrounding towns. There is a 2 euro bus to the larger town of Agen and trains are available from there to Bordeaux, Toulouse etc. We are a casual couple but expect tidiness from our workers.
