    Description

    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.

    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.
    I am quite cool and a good cook !
