    My husband is Oliver and is in his mid sixties and am Rebecca in my mid fifties, that makes us sound really old, but we are both very fit and active! We have lived in France for 13 years, we love it here and have made lots of great friends. Our passions are our animals and our home and garden, Oliver is also interested in shooting and is at the moment vice president of our local shooting club, he also restores old cars and we are lucky enough to own a little Austin Healey Frogeye which was made in 1959.

    I have a business selling horse and animal feed and supplements, I sell saddles and I also train horses and riders to enjoy each other more! We have 3 horses, 2 dogs, a cat, lots of chickens and a pink Cockatoo.

    We don't have a great deal of leisure time, mine is usually spent riding or gardening, Ollie's off with his gun and his dog or reading. We both love being out of doors as much as possible. We also like music, dancing, films, books, eating, drinking wine and spending time with friends and family!

  • Ayuda


    As we have animals there are many daily chores which involve their care so volunteers would be expected to help with some of these.
    There are also seasonal chores like harvesting veg and fruit, collecting wood etc
    We may have a 'project' underway, which could be building work or just moving fences.
    Help with a bit of the housework would be fantastic as I love cooking, but loathe housework!
    Help in the garden and paddocks

  • Alojamiento


    We have a small farm set in 11 hectares, a vegetable and flower garden, a cosy little 2 bedroomed house and an additional self contained flat, plus another bedroom with it's own bathroom in one of the outbuildings, these are sometimes let through online rentals so volunteers would have to be flexible about accommodation, no need to share a bathroom though! The area is absolutely beautiful, we are 6kms from the nearest town which has all commerce.

    There is no local transport system, the nearest town of Lauzerte is 6kms away, it is a beautiful whacky place and it is a lovely walk there on tracks with only a tiny bit of road, we also have a couple of bikes that could be used, though they are both a little old so may need some tlc before anyone does! Lauzerte has all commerce and lots of cafes bars and restaurants, though many don't stay open all year round, in the summer the place is creative, arty and buzzing, in the winter it mostly sleeps! Moissac is the nearest train station and bigger town.
