  • Description


    Hey there
    We are a young couple who decided to buy a 300 year old farm house in southwest France with a big garden.
    We have big plans but small pockets, so are busy saving up for the next part of our renovation project.
    We are completing a full renovation from floor to roof and the surrounding buildings too and are looking to become self sufficient and off grid at some point in the future.
    If you have any sort of building, carpentry, plumbing or electrical skills and would like a free working holiday in France, maybe we should talk.
