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.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
If you want to get better at English and learn how to create and plan an organic garden we are for you. We can also teach you some basic french as well as introduce you to the local community.
The main project up for grabs is restoring a large vegetable patch ready for spring. This includes clearing the land, removing the waste material, turning the soil and creating the beds ready for planting. We also have a lots of pruning to do ready for a big bonfire which we shall have when you are here!
2 bedrooms both with double beds and electric heating. Large bathroom, shared living space and fast internet. We are happy to share our traditional french home with you.
We are happy to feed you whilst you stay with us and we're happy to drive you to the shops when needed. There is a bus station 5mins away that can take you to a train station for longer distance trips. Visit some of the south of France's prettiest cities, Bordeaux, Bergerac and Perigueux, or just chill with us, visit local French markets, watch netflix and share a glass of wine or 2.
