  • Description


    We are a "less energetic than we were" British couple who six years ago bought an old farmhouse with outbuildings which we have renovated with the help of some 30 Workaways in the beautiful Drome les Collines, situated in the middle of a renowned golf course and 2 klms from the river Rhone in noted vineyard country. We have lived over half our lives in France and have had a very successful property finding business in the French alps for 20 years. We have three children and three grandchildren all of whom live in the area.We are sporty, outgoing and have a horse and a dog. The situation of the property is idylic. Most of the work is outdoors, clearing up the land, general maintenance, painting... We are looking for two strong willing Workaways to help before the summer ideally in April
