  • Description

    Description

    I am 63. Vegetarian. Have British Irish and Swiss nationalities but am not a nationalist:-) I do not run a business but would consider small renumeration to workaways within the constraints of the workaway ideal and French rules. I myself still work but not locally so some short timed house sitting may be required. I have over a hectare of unused land which I would like to bring back into use. Possibly starting a vegtable patch this spring 2020. I cannot cook well I am told!

    My place is in rural Dordogne France which in itself attracts many nationals other than French. There are plenty of things going on especially in the summer months. If you walk out the door you will have to find a way to communicate. My doors have always been open to anyone from anywhere which is a result of my own travel experiences.

    Help

    I have a relatively large garden which needs sorting. I am open as to what this help consists of. Pure Gardening and preparation of pathways, planting and clearing. If someone is willing and has a desire to be creative then that person would have the opportunity to express him/herself. Or on the other hand one could do some grafting and this would suffice.

    Accommodation

    The house is small so I have well equipped mobile homes/caravans on the property for workaways sleeping arrangements. Showering eating and everyday stuff in the house. There will only be a maximum of 2 workaways at one time.

    Transport links are poor, but when I am around am approachable and will transport people around to a point. There is Wifi. The Dordogne has an amazing history and sights to see. I would say its a place to chill out.
