I am an art gallerist and art agent specialized in abstract painting, sculpture and photography (the last two being not abstract).
I bought that big (17 rooms) house in Vabre almost six years ago and have started re-decorating it. The work is sometimes hard for my age ! that is why I offer an opportunity to Workaway travellers who can work with their hands.
I am involved in art activities still : organizing art shows and classical music concerts in the village through the Cultural Centre (situated in a 17th Century house).
The population of the village (850 people) is mixed : villagers and retired urban people as well as foreigners of various nationalities.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
as an art gallerist and music lover, there are always opportunities for a show or a concert.
I also like to visit around in the company of Workaway travellers.

The village (Vabre) is in the middle of a Natural protected area with lots of historical places (from pre-historic Ruthenian Menhirs to more modern castles... Goya, Ingres and Toulouse-Lautrec museums are not far.The area is famous for its food and wine.
There is a nice brand new swimming pool (using the river water) in the village.A lot of mountain walks are possible from the village.
One young British-French artist is in long-time residence in the house.
