  • Descripción


    Hello.I moved to the Charente in France over two years ago. I live in a beautiful small village which has a church and a town hall. My house is very old and rustic. I have started to renew certain things and gradually I hope to improve it but without loosing character. My garden is quite big and needs iPa lot of improvement. The village is in a agriculture area and there are some beautiful walks or bike rides. We have several lakes for swimming and they have beaches and picnic areas. My nearest village for banks, cafe’s and pharmacy is five minutes away and the larger town for supermarkets, market and other shops and restaurants is twenty minutes. During the summer there are numerous events celebrating bread or wine or produce. The summer can be quite hot. I have two small friendly dogs, two cats and two small parrots. I love to cook, I do not eat meat. Life here is very easy going and relaxed.

  • Ayuda


    The main help I would appreciate is to improve the garden. Removing an old chicken enclosure, loads of digging and weeding and levelling the lawn. I would also like help to establish an above ground swimming pool. Approximately 20’ x 10’. I will also appreciate help with painting walls in the house. Some of the walls are very high. There are some wooden window and door frames that need some work on and a summer house that needs some repairs and varnishing.
