    Hello dear Workaway(s)!
    I am Fabien, 51years old and Léa-Alphonsine my 12 years old daughter. we live in a beautiful place in the Dordogne between Perigueux and Bordeaux.
    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.

  • Help


    You will be welcomed as a family member and your daily support (a couple of hours) would be much appreciated. The chores could include:
    cooking , cleaning the house,ironing, cleaning the orchard, weeding parts of the garden (such as removing brambles), cleaning the poultry yard including the hen house. Also wood work for a barn extension.Fabien have a collection of Citroen old timer cars and vans of different sorts (i.e. 2CV DS HY AMI6 Mehari etc...) and any mechanical skills to help for mechanic or bodywork would be welcome and also car washing.
    The project in the moment is mostly in the garden to make it nice and to breed the vegetable, their is always some house work, with cooking, little ironing & cleaning.
    Take a pick based on your experience and skills.

  • Accommodation


    Our proposal is to share the house including daily meals obviously. We supply breakfast and two other meals every day, mostly organic and vegetarian food. We don't drink much alcohol, but sometimes we have some good wine or selfmade beer (by me!) with friends.
    Please note that we are a non-smoking family and consequently a non-smoking house.
