Hello, I'd love your help renovating two buildings on my land in picturesque north-west Burgunday not far from the Chablis vineyards and within easy reach of Auxerre (or Paris by train). You would have your own accommodation in a separate house, ideal for one or two people, but we'd take meals together.
DIY and building projects
I have many friends locally, artists, photographers, film makers, astrophysicists, farmers, journalists etc to provide interesting conversation in English or French. I can offer lessons in English, French, tai chi, archery. On your day off we can go and visit places of interest locally in my car. The garden is in constant progress and there will be fruit to pick and prepare by end June. I hope to make elderflower cordial soon.
Two barns are falling down and I need help demolishing one and rebuilding an open wooden structure.
your own house with kitchen and bathroom
Meals together in the main house but if you prefer to be independent that is possible too.
I am easygoing in general but I don't like cigarette smoke. I look forward to meeting you and having fun together!!
