Renovating my 200 year old farm cottage in NW Dordogne in South West France, in a small village, we are at the top of the hill so we have amazing views and are very rural so if you have your own transport that would help you getting out and about too. We have lots of projects for all types of help needed, from gardening to helping us relay the swimming pool patio. We have a cave (cellar) with a bread oven we would love to get working, bedrooms that haven't been touched for years - the house has lots of history and we adore it, we would love to welcome you into our home and share our french life with you in the countryside. We are English and I love to cook and bake. My partner and I both work from home, me part time and we would love another pair of hands to help us with any of our projects
DIY and building projects
Based in the beautiful NW Dordogne, we speak English, have amazing rural views and would love to share our french life and culture with you and the amazing surrounding area. Fields of sunflowers, chateau and corn fields and streams are our views from the house.
We are renovating our 200 year old french cottage in South West France and need some help/more pairs of hands renovating some of the rooms all liveable but needing some tlc. We also need to sort out the swimming pool area and re-lay the patio, I have 1.5 acres of land which needs tidying up - lots of different projects both inside and outside of the house. I am trying to finish one room at a time but at the moment its like a chicken and egg situation to finish a room and move onto the next. I have an electrician so looking for maybe someone who is general hands on, painting, gardening, general helping. Also if you can put up plasterboard and/or plaster then I will make cake! (I love baking!)
