    Description

    Nearly 30 years ago, we fell in love with an old farmhouse because of its unspoilt countryside setting and beautiful views, and have been renovating it over the years.
    Jean François is now retired, Tracey still works in real estate.
    We need a helping hand in the garden (ideally during November and March), and possibly a few DIY projects, for a total of about 15h/week.
    We can offer accommodation in an independent guest house (across the courtyard from our house) with its own facilities.
    We are a 20 minute drive from Périgueux, the main town in the Dordogne.
    There is a good railway service to Bordeaux (1h).
