Marie and I run holiday accommodation that includes a gite and studio. Marie and I have been here for 7 years now and we are always looking to improve our facility and maintain it in very good condition. We are regarded as very good hosts and many guests return year after year. Marie is also an excellent cook.
We are in the heart of rural France, but with local communities close by including larger towns. You can learn about the French way of life, history, culture and improve language skills. There is plenty to see and do within easy reach, but you would need to drive as there is little in the way of public transport, except occasional special buses that are inexpensive.
Gardening, painting, varnishing, poolside repairs and spring cleaning to include addition of river-stone at the surround. It would be useful to be fit and able.
English and a little French
A private studio with its own summer kitchen and courtyard garden.
There are a great many attractions, scenic, historic and cultural, again our web-site gives lots of information relating to these. Riberac is 10Km, similarly Aubeterre and bigger places like Perigeux and Angouleme at 45 minutes drive. Cognag is about an hour and 15 minutes and the coast at Royan is about 2 hours with Ile D'Oleron and La Rochelle a little further.
