  • Descripción


    We require workaways, with some renovation experience, from September 2022.

    Help us renovate our French farmhouse set in beautiful countryside just ten minutes away from the medieval town of Sarlat la Canada, in the Dordogne. We want to renovate the farmhouse and three of its barns to create ourselves a home with gites.

    We are a married couple from the UK with a grown-up family we left behind and two toy poodles we brought with us. We work all day renovating and then like to chill in the evenings. We attend weekly salsa classes something we have done for the last five years. If we had more time we would go walking in the fabulous French countryside. Graham would also do more cycling and Amanda would read more.
