    Description

    My wife and I have been building our home here in Roche le Peyroux, a small commune, in this beautiful area of France for a few years with the help of family and friends from Scotland. Now we are able to be here more often we are looking for someone who can help with the building of a house, someone perhaps with experience in woodworking, plastering or general building work.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have found our neighbours to be very friendly and willing to share in all the activities within our commune.
    There are sporting and recreational activities all around us for example kayaking, fishing, hillwalking, swimming to name just a few.
    We have fresh local produce available at markets held in the local towns and villages.
    Experiencing life in rural France has been very rewarding for us and we would like to share this with others.
