  • Description


    We are a couple that recently moved here from South Africa and we are renovating an old castle to be turned into a wedding venue. Most of the main building is complete and so now we are turning our attention to the smaller surrounding buildings. We are sociable and looking forward to exploring and finding people who can help and in return we will facilitate their exploring.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Train is close by and just a 30min ride into the city. The hosts are new to France and are also interested in exploring and so workaways will be invited on any trips. Please note that we do get a lot of enquiries and if you enquire about a specific date and I tell you it is available, if you do not conform your dates I will not be able to hold them if someone else confirms those dates prior to you. I have many people who have asked for dates and I allocate it for them only to not hear from them again which is not fair on other people who I may have turned away as a result. Please be understanding of this as we wish to give as many people opportunities as possible.
