We are Nick and Judy, a couple with grown up children and we live in the South of the Dordogne area, situated between 3 beautiful old bastide towns. Our nearest town is Bergerac. The property is the remains of a 17th Century hamlet. There are 3 houses, two barns and a swimming pool. The grounds consist of 26 acres – woodland, meadow, vegetable patch, walnut grove and a small lake. We moved here from London 13 years ago and during that time have restored the 3 houses, installed photovoltaic panels and put in eco-friendly sanitation systems including a reedbed. a dog,a cat and some chickens.

They could learn lots about gardening and land management. Also some building skills. We can speak French with them if desired.
Potential projects for this year include:
•wood clearance and management -the aim being to be self sufficient in firewood but also to gain access to woodland that has not been managed for about 50 years
•stone wall repair/maintenance
•fruit and veg growing, harvesting and preserving
We find it best to work with couples or groups of friends rather than with a workawayer travelling on their own.

Accommodation would be in a separate cottage on site that can sleep 4 people.
Life here is never boring and is characterised by good food, good wine, good company and lots of sunshine – at least for March through to November .
We welcome anyone who feels they can contribute to the projects we have in hand either by offering muscle power, relevant knowledge and experience or simply a willingness to muck in. French or English lessons can be offered in return.
