  • Descripción


    We are a family of 6 on a beautiful countryside farmhouse with 26 acres of grasslands, forest and lakes. We have many projects going on. We are not a business farm - we just love the space. We are looking to share time with our family for cultural experiences, with people who can also help us progress our many projects from minor renovations to garden maintenance.

    We are a fun and fun-loving family in France. We are all English. Duncan speaks good French, Esther speaks some French and Italian. Our farmland offers space and beautiful tranquility and the local area has many things to do, from chateaux to velo-railing and canoeing. We are in a small hamlet of 4 houses, spaced out but very friendly.

    We have a number of projects and mini-projects on the go and planned, from renovating an old chicken shed, to clearing around the large lake, felling trees and clearing scrub, to building barbecues, to varnishing windows and, putting up tool shelves, gardening, mowing and garden landscaping, pressure-washing roof tiles, building a woodshed etc.

    We are a non-business farmhouse, with 4 children, (aged 11, 14, 18, 20) currently all onsite, but often the older 2 are away. We are very sociable, musical and fun-loving and would love to share social time with similar interesting people. We are looking for someone with a hardworking attitude who can muck-in and adapt to many different jobs. Equally, we are flexible, given the range of jobs, as to what best suits you.

    There are many things to do locally. We are between the town of St Yrieix La Perche, which has all the necessary amenities, and the smaller but stunning Jumilhac le grand with it’s spectacular chateau.
    St Yrieix has a train station so you can connect with the rest of France.
    There is plenty to do inn the local area, including beautiful old chateaux, ancient caves, a local swimming pool and plenty more.
    In your time off, you are welcome to hang out with us as the family or to go off to explore the area, as you wish.
    Both Esther and Duncan work from home so we are around a lot.
    In addition to the 5 hours a day working on the different projects, we all get involved with cooking and cleaning up the meals and you would be expected to take your turn at cooking and cleaning when the time comes. We have a cleaner friend who comes once a week but we all also do occasional light housework.
