We are Sam and Fanny, we live with our daughter Annwenn (2 years old) in the beautiful region of South Corrèze... We would like to welcome helpers to share in our daily life, our many projects and passion for nature! We live in an old farm that needs a lot of renovating and gardening. We have a cat.
During the winter months we live in a cosy home nearby the farm, with a private room for helpers, electricity, hot water, wifi... In the summer we live at Champ de Laumet, in the stone house, with solar panels, a cold shower outisde, and dry toilets.
We're keen musicians and regularly play the folk guitar and flute as an informal duo. Please don't hesitate to bring your instruments!
We have been volunteers many times ourselves, and will strive to provide all the comfort and warmth that we know to be so important when you're on the move. We're quite knowledgeable about the local area and South-West France in general, so we will be more than happy to involve you in local events and to give you information for weekend visits or to plan the next stages of your trip.

Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje
You can learn plenty of things concerning ecobuilding, we know a good deal about it. We can teach you some french or english. I'm afraid we are beginners about gardening, permaculture, edible forest..but we have some good books and we try to improve over the years. We spend some time every month with the organic farmers of our village to help them and learn more about their job, you are most welcome to participate if you are interested.

There will be a wide range of activities to take part in, depending on your personal interests, skills, and also on the seasons. We ask for 20 to 25 hours a week (can be 4 to 5h per day monday to friday, with free weekends, or 7h a day for 3 days a week...). These could include babysitting, cooking, working on the house or veggie patch... We both have building skills and we can teach you how to build with wood, earth, stones and straw. We want to transform our farm into a beautiful, natural home using environmentally friendly methods and materials. We also have some side projects (dry toilets, bread oven, summer kitchen...) that you could help with from scratch.

Your private room is a cosy caravan, with a large bed (sleeps 2), a chest of drawers and some space to put your luggages. Private dry toilets. No water in the caravan. Access to electricity. Non smoking in the caravan. It will be in the shade of a big oak tree in the afternoon. We will share the house (kitchen, living room, shower area). Non smoking in the house.
We can show you the nice villages nearby, we can lend you bikes, and take you to various cultural events. It is possible to canoe on the dordogne river nearby (during the summer). There are some ranches where you can horse ride nearby. The local markets (meyssac, vayrac, beaulieu..) take place once a week all year round. There are some music concerts in the area, some local bars where you can try local beer or wine. There is a cinema in Vayrac (15 kms ride ). The bus can take you to the main cities (Brive la gaillarde and Tulle, 45 minutes ride) were you can go to more concerts and museums.

Please contact us before to give us more informations about your pet. We have a cat at home and she doesn't like dogs, so most of the time dogs are welcomed to stay outside in the garden.
