We are Sophie and Nada, Two women in Southern France... we have a bio garden and chickens sheep goats poneys geese rabbits Dogs Cats etc. which go around to schools and old age homes. on 3 hectares in the beautiful Dordogne area in SW France. Quiet and tranquil countryside. In the summer the large old stone farmhouses are rented out to tourists.
    There is also a swimming pool and sauna.
    helping us is fun and not too intense , also Sophie can teach French and Nada can teach English .

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    there are many tourist sites here such as prehistoric caves like Lascaux and many castles. We are five minutes from the village. and can provide the volunteers with site seeing excursions to meet what ever their interests are.
    We have had two volunteers here this summer which worked out very good for everyone. Over the last years we have also had many American volunteers dropping by to give a hand getting our project up and running.
