  • Description


    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.
