  • Descripción


    I recently moved to the Dordogne. I have been chef, farmer, and hotelier for over 20 years in Canada, Spain, Central America, and now France. I have a house in the countryside about 5 minutes by car from Domme, which is one of the country's most beautiful villages. The house is on a 1.6 hectre property that needs lots of help gardening and landscaping. In addition, the house that requires some renovation work, painting, etc, and a building in another nearby village I am renovating. I have a newly renovated private bedroom available for workawayers.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    The region is deep and rich with history, and we have a unique site that was a cave village. The two of us have studied anthropology, history, and archaeology. There is a lot of culture both at our home and in the surrounding villages and towns, including Sarlat. We are also chefs and gardeners, and there's the chance to learn a whole lot about gardening, food, and food origins. We live amidst castles, manor houses, medeival towns, and the Dordogne River with opportunities for swimming and kayaking. We speak English, French, and Spanish.

    We have opportunities in gardening, cleaning, painting, and some building renovations/cleanup at a beautiful location in the Perigord region of France, near the Dordogne River. We also need help taming vegetation and restoring an ancient troglodyte village as well as maintaining a garden and small vineyard. There is almost 2 hectares of land, much of it forested. There's a chance to learn about landscaping, gardening, food, and history! We also have a second building in a nearby village that needs a bit of cleanup, gardening, painting, etc.
