  • Description


    Hi, we are David and Leigh and three dogs, English family living in North Dordogne for the past 17 years. The property is in 56 acres of land with a lake and bordering the river dronne. The area is very popular with walkers and cyclist with the outstanding countryside and wildlife, also very very popular for fishing with a large 190 acre lake just 5 min drive from us, so if you enjoy the outdoors and getting out and exploring this is the ideal place.
    We have a small holiday business and licensed restaurant. We have a four and five bedroom gites and glamping site and restaurant open in the evening to guests and locals.

    We are looking for help in wood clearing, we have a very large wooded area with lots of fallen trees we want to clear to promote re-growth and prepare firewood for winter. As we are very keen road and mountain bikers our son is building a small bike park and would love some help making the jumps and trails with the wood cleared from the woods. So if you love the outdoors please contact us we would love to speak to you. Workaways will not be asked to help in any aspect of the business.
