  • Description


    We a 'non-traditional gay Irish family and we relocated to the Dordogne Valley (dept LOT 46) in 2018 and during the late spring and summer, we run a small chambre d’hôtes or B&B with a terraced restaurant (now closed until May 2022). That overlooks the river Dordogne which is just at the end of the garden.

    We are fluent English speakers (although Irish) and with decent French, so great for someone wanting to improve English. We also include accommodation and meals.

    What we offer:
    - Own ensuite accommodation
    - English language (so ideal for someone wanting to improve English)
    - The town is small and very quiet so ideal for those who meditate etc.
    - Lots of natural scenery
    - Animal lovers will like our 2 dogs and 2 cats

    We are happy to answer any questions your may have. Note you should have transport or have an EU/International drivers licence or own car because of location if you wish to do independent exploration beyond say 15km (we have bikes!)

    We look forward to hearing from you and please don't hesitate to ask any questions -

    In light of COVID we will ONLY be hosting 1 person to support due to COVID who has a negative PCT or fully vaccinated.

    We always set up a zoom call to initially discuss before making any decisions and ensure both sides are very comfortable
