  • Description


    Hello dear Workaway(s)!
    I am Fabien, 53years old and Léa-Alphonsine my 14 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.

    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.
