Hi, we are Michiel and Sibel a we've bought a medieval farm in the southwest of France. We have horses, chickens, dogs, and a cat and various wildlife that crosses our fields regularly. Our farm was featured on Dutch television. We even have our own escape room....!
For 2020 we are looking for a gardening prince or princess. Since all or time goes to our businesses (holiday home, escape room, wifi installations...), we dont have had the time for our own garden. It's not a big wilderness, but it needs some TLC and a lot of love.
If you are looking for a big garden project, on your own (we can help/advice/provide tools) or with someone else. And you are passionate about gardening, growing vegetables.
The Lot and Garonne is fairly new when it comes to tourism. North of us is the Dordogne, which is flooded by tourists. Our area is quiet, but large shops are only a few minutes away. You can roam the area freely (bikes present, or bring your own car). Sibel can teach you about academic horseback riding and natural horsemanship, Michiel can teach you about technology and we could learn you the basics of the dutch language. Feel free to interact with the people around us and learn about french culture and french people. And of course you will gain experience with all the building work that needs to be done.
We need your help but also you need to be able to work unsupervised.
You will be sleeping in a private room in the main house. You have your own bathroom and toilet. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner with us and that's being paid for by us. Sometimes we order pizza or we eat out. You're free to join in on your own expense.
Please note this is a non-smoking farm.
During your time off you can explore the Lot et Garonne, write your book, make long walks, meditate, go to the forest, explore the surrounding vilages, enjoy the sun and the pool, go shopping etc...
