    Wé live on 5 hectares with our 3 horses, 5 chickens, 1 dog, and 1 cat, in the centre of france, in a green, natural corner, however close to rail and road links to the major cities (Paris, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Tours, and the Loire valley.)
    We are involved in renovating buildings and the land itself to transform it into a space for people to come for personal equine assisted development, including yoga, meditation, reiki, chinese massage and a acupuncture, and cooking with the seasons with only garden or local produce.
    We also teach English and French and can host a linguistic stay in immersion in both languages. Experienced in teaching music lessons in piano and violin are also possible.
    In exchange we would like help in whichever of these areas, including general gardening skills.
