  • Descripción


    My name is Sharon.
    We ( my husband, daughter and myself) are living on an 18th century property the countryside of the Perigord blanc, part of the central Dordogne Région.

    Our work eventually evolved to the preservation of period houses and other architecture. We also have a real estate agency, and love to share all experiences.
    Among other things, we are interested in traditional building methods and skills of all kinds.

    We are having an intensely good time working our way through the challenges of our projects. There seems to be a lot to lean, and learn from, even for the very experienced. That goes for me as well.

    The help is interesting and varied. If you join us we suggest some work cloths and the ability to work independently. We are always ready to help, and pass along or teach skills.

    Cooking is another skill we really like to share!!!
    We live in a place where you can find really nice things and it should be a pleasure to share your experiences with ours!

    Projets 2024:
    Cleaning; inside and outside ( dépends the weather lol)
    Create new gardens: landscaping, create a huge vegetable garden ( spring ) and harvest veggies ( summer)
    We appreciate if you do activities at home with SANDY, teach her english and Spanish..or other languages, sing songs or tell stories! Play games, go for a walk on the countryside..
    And we can learn you French and Dutch!
    And I especially appreciate some help with cooking too:)
    Sandy loves to bake cakes/cookies / waffles..


    Teaching and learning skills is one of our priorities and most enjoyed parts of our experience. Curiosity and a desire to satisfy it is a great way to get the most out of your time here.

    Critical to our experience and success is a good sense of humor! We are here to get stuff done, learn something, and have a good time! If you have an instrument to play bring it!

    We prefer a minimum of a 2 week stay.

    You will have your own bedroom in our house and your general tasks will be: taking care of the animals, looking after the property, do some gardening , painting, cleaning, play with our daughter.

    See you soon.
