We are a family of 3 who live in South West France near to Fumel in a stone fortified farmhouse set in 50 acres. We are surrounded by chemins to walk or ride around. We are 1.5km from our village that hosts markets and many local events. It is lovely to experience local french markets and culture. We are very lucky, it is a gorgeous place to be. We speak English at home and would love to help anyone who wants to improve their English and experience our culture. We would love to share in your culture too! We work internationally and as a result we would love to share our home in exchange for support with our home, land and animals. We offer lots of opportunity to get involved with our animals and gardens.

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We offer an English home experience but are in a beautiful region of France where French culture can also be explored.
We are nearing the end of a massive renovation. There are still some building jobs/maintenance/gardening and animal care that we would like help with. We have horses, chickens dogs and cats and would love to grow more veg! In the meantime we work mainly from home but do have to travel. We also have a self sufficient 16 year old!
