Hello dear Workaway(s)!
I am Fabien, 53years old and Léa-Alphonsine my 13and a half years old daughter. we live in a beautiful place in the Dordogne between Perigueux and Bordeaux. Léa-Alphonsine is all the time here either the holidays she shared with her mum.
Our house is a spacious selfmade wooden house. There's still a lot to be done around the house!
The village and the surroundings are really nice, with lots of forests around for walking or cycling. There is also a lovely river running through the village for summer swimming and canoeing. The super market is 10 km far from our home.
