  • Description


    Hi, I am Brigitte. I've just bought an old house, in a small and historic village in the South-West of Dordogne.
    I need people to help me for gardening, painting, celling... I want to create a guest house.
    I live in this really nice house, near castles and caves. The area is quite animated : there are a lot of live concerts, exhibitions, open markets...

    I speak english, I understand spanish and I love meeting new people. I've been in the Workaway programm for ten years, in an other place and it was really nice to host so much people!

    I used to lend, sometimes, my car to volunteers who want to visit the region.

    You're welcome at home! The only condition is, one time, cooking a dish from your place (your grandmother can help you and give you a receipe !!!), help for the preparation of the meals and cleaning the house.


    Bonjour, je suis Brigitte, je viens juste d'acquérir une très vieille maison dans un petit village, classé dans le nord ouest de la Dordogne. J 'ai besoin de personnes pour m'aider à rénover la maison: jardinage, peinture, électricité...
    Mon projet est de créer une chambre d'hôtes et une auberge.

    La maison est habitable, très agréable, à proximité des châteaux médiévaux et de grottes. Le Périgord vert est très animé : concerts, expos, marchés, etc.

    Je parle anglais, je comprends l'espagnol et j'aime les échanges. J'ai déjà une grande expérience avec les Workaways : j'ai participé au programme pendant de nombreuses années, dans une autre maison.
