    Hello Everyone!

    We’re Holly and Ryan - In our late twenties we moved to the South West France countryside last year in search of a more laid back lifestyle.

    We’ve just bought an old stone house here in the Dordogne and (although a total bargain!) it needs some work.

    We’ve got the professionals in for the larger jobs but there’s a need for general labourers and painters etc! If anyone has a trade/skill then even better - we are sure we can find something for everyone!

    Having travelled Asia through sites similar to Work Away we want to give back to the community and house a few travellers!

    You’d be housed with us in a place with brekki and evening meal provided (we can’t cater to vegans or veggies I am afraid as we’re in rural France!!)

    You would have your own bedroom and shared bathroom and so a couple or singles are welcome!

    Our nearest airport is Bergerac. Around 40 minutes from us!

    Within the area there’s some great eateries, chateau, gardens etc. Loads of history!

    A chance to brush up on your French and/or English!

    We are an English couple and just learning French ourselves but immersing in the language is a great way to learn!

    Help

    No specific skills required but you need to be fit and able!

    Our new house needs stripping to say the least - that includes:
    Wallpaper
    Taking down rails
    Smashing out kitchens

    We’ll also need help with painting, tiling, gardening and general labour runs to the tip and back!

    You’ll be needed on hand for around 4/5 hours a day between 10-3 (ish!)

    But the afternoons and nights will be yours!

    We have WiFi! A house and a comfy bed.

    We love meeting new folks with a story to tell so get in touch!
