    I would love to welcome you at my home. I love to cook and share meals together using the gorgeous local seasonal produce. I also love meeting people from all over the world and learning about their lives, traditions and cultures. My house is an old farm building, originally used for housing animals and drying prunes. The garden has never received the love and attention it needs to come into its own, so I would love some help to realise the vision I have in my head of what the garden could look like, including creating somewhere to grow vegetables and fruit.

    There are also lots of jobs to be done inside and out of the house, as it is an old stone farm building which has taken years to slowly renovate and is still not finished completely. Lots of carpentry, painting, restoring stone, and little maintenance jobs. I have a dream to build an outside kitchen with a clay-built oven, so would love someone with the skills to help to create this!

    This is a really beautiful part of France, deep countryside but yet close to two lovely towns (7km). You will get to experience the 'real' France, markets, traditions, people, language, summer festivals, brocantes and vide greniers, seasonal amazing food!
    The house is really peaceful, overlooking a beautiful valley. Everyone tells me that they can relax here better than anywhere else they have ever been!

    Converted stone farmhouse with terrace and garden. The bedroom available has a double bed, window out onto the country lane and is shaded at the back of the house, so cool in the summer. All meals are offered, with an evening meal cooked most days, or ingredients available to cook yourself if you like.

    It is essential to have a car as there is no public transport between the hamlet where the house is situated and the closest towns. Tourist attractions such as the Dordogne, Toulouse and Bordeaux are all within driving distance for day trips and there are local lakes, restaurants and beautiful bastide towns to visit within close distance.
