  • Descripción


    We live in the Charente sorrounded by lovely countryside but within walking distance of a quaint hamlet with a small cafe/shop. We have horses, a cat, a dog and some chickens all of whom come first! The property is very much a blank canvass and we are hoping to create garden areas, a track all around the land with pretty walks as well as an orchard a pond and wild meadow. We are dedicated to living as green as possible and hope to be growing most of our own fruit and vegetables by 2021. We would like to encourage local wildlife and already have many different birds visiting us. We are also in the process of renovating and modernising the house and other buildings.
    It would be lovely to meet people, to hear about your experiences and share in any hints or tips you may have discovered along the way.

    We are both english speakers but do have a little French and would be happy to support and assist with learning or improving either. There is an opportunity to learn about horses a d there care and there may be an opportunity to ride may be available but would be subject to size, weight, ability etc.
    We are also keen amateur ecologists so would be very interested to hear and learn from anyone elses experiences.

    Help either with the garden or the house renovations would be very welcome, whatever your skill we would be sure to find a project for it and even if you think you have none the gardening will in the first instance be as much about jungle clearing so just a happy worker would be a great help, especially if happy to help out with the animals.
