Our family home is situated in the South West of France. We live in a small peaceful hamlet, only 10km from Brantome which has the nearest facilities, and 20 minutes drive from Perigueux.
It is an area of outstanding beauty, with its ancient Abbey's and Chateau's, local markets and abundance of restaurants to choose from.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help updating and renovating our Stable/Shelter and outside paddock area for our donkeys. Also fencing and garden tidying and maintenance.
There may also be work preparing for a new drive and garden area. Would suit a fit and enthusiastic person or couple.
Our Gite is available for sleeping, but all meals will be provided in the main family home. We are a Non Smoking family.
Sightseeing is in abundance here, picturesque villages, Chateau's, markets, canooing on the River Dronne, Tennis, Cycle Hire, restaurants, walks, all available within Brantome, or visit Perigueux for the shopping fix. It would be more advantageous if you had your own car so you can sightsee at your own convenience.
Or if you prefer doing nothing with your time off, then just chill out next to the pool.
We have a relaxed family life, like to work hard and get things done, but enjoy nothing better than an evening of good food, wine, and good conversation.
We are animal lovers and have 2 crazy daft dogs, donkeys and chickens, all take time up during the day in some form.
