We are retired teachers and we have a second home in France. We are looking for help with pointing some walls at the house next spring. The house is in a beautiful part of France - the Lot, near Castelnau Montratier. The lake is just 15 minutes drive - there are many beautiful villages to visit. Would suit someone who is a lover of nature as the house is surrounded by fields, forests, deer and wild boar.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We are both English but we speak good French. We have French neighbours either side. We can provide food and accommodation for help on the house. We have bicycles to explore the countryside in the Lot.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have several DIY jobs to complete on the house but mainly a lot of pointing walls using sand and lime. My husband will be on hand to help.

What else ...
There is a bus to Cahors on Wednesday and Saturday but a car would be useful. My husband loves cycling and I often go for a swim at the local lake.
