  • Description


    We are looking for help restoring our picturesque small-holding in the sunny south of France. We are situated 10 miles away from the beautiful Dordogne river in part of France that is surrounded by some of the best examples of bastide towns and villages. If you like being outside with nature and want to get away from city noise this location is for you.

    My name is Tom, I'm 33 and live here with my wife Lucy also 33 our 2 dogs, Binky and Dogmatix and our parrot Yoshi. We are easy going, hard working peeps, we love being outside and chilling with a glass of red by the fire in the evening.
