We are a British family living in an old farmstead near Sarlat-la-Canéda in Dordogne. We have a 10-year-old daughter, 2 dogs, 4 chickens and 5 rabbits. Will is a cartoonist, games designer, graphic novelist and singer-songwriter and I am a painter. We are constantly working on our garden and property and we have lots of jobs for Workawayers to do.

Our areas of expertise are moving to France, renovating property, painting (oils), drawing, graphic novels, guitar, song-writing, etc. We are laid back, creative and slightly disorganised but we are trying to become efficient!

We are renovating a farmstead so there is loads to do! We need help in our garden (planting, weeding, mowing, using a strimmer and clearing a copse), help with DIY, and more physical work like clearing out our barn, putting up a perimeter fence, and chiselling rendering from stone walls. We also have 4 chickens to feed and 2 labradors to walk. We have recently planted a small vineyard and started keeping bees.
Your own private self-catering cottage with 2 bedrooms (1 double and one tiny one with a bunk bed). There is a kitchenette, a small living room, a bathroom with tub and shower, masses of DVDs, British and French TV and fast WiFi. During the spring and summer months we rent out the cottage and we have only had positive reviews (over 100).
The area is famous for its natural beauty, caves, prehistoric drawings, castles, beautiful villages and food and wine. We have 4 kayaks to go down the Dordogne river, bicycles and a car. The area has been the setting for several famous films including Chocolat and Ever After, A Cinderella Story and, more recently, The Last Duel by Ridley Scott. Sarlat-la-Canéda is one of France's best preserved medieval town and it is hugely popular with tourists who fill its streets during the summer months. From the area, you can take direct trains to Bordeaux and Toulouse and there are several airports nearby such as Brive (40 mins), Bergerac (1.5 hours), Limoges, Toulouse and Bordeaux.
