  • Description

    Description

    We are both British, retired and living in our farmhouse surrounded by 22 hectares of land which has been designated an LPO (League pour la Protection des Oiseaux) in Lot et Garonne, SW France. We are keen on birds and wildlife and have a tendency to adopt abandoned animals - currently we have a dog, four cats, an elderly horse and two hens.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak English and reasonable French so happy to help with language skills. We are out in the countryside surrounded by nature and we can offer peace and solitude. The surrounding area offers much historical interest with bastides dating from the 100 Years War. There are wonderful walking trails passing through wooded valleys, hamlets, orchards, vineyards etc.

    We need some help in cutting back an overgrowth of brambles, stacking logs and general outdoor ground maintenance. You will need to be strong, enjoy physical projects, being outdoors and happy to use a brush cutter.

    I’m always happy to improve my French by chatting to French speakers. I find it’s by far the best way to learn

    What else ...

    Own transport preferred as we have no bus routes nearby.
    Several markets within close proximity as well as many historic and beautiful towns and villages. We have some local caves within walking distance and a scenic lake.
    We think you would be someone who enjoys the peace and quiet of rural living and appreciates wildlife and nature.
