    Description

    I am Patrick, a retired anthropologist and recently I bought a house near Bordeaux in a nice city ( Castillon la Bataille) in the middle of the vineyard, 15 km from Saint Émilion. The house is very beautiful but needs some work. I've two daughters and four grandchildren, but most of the time I live alone. My wife is Brazilian and works in her country.
    I like to travel around. Since my retirement from the university I have devoted a lot of time to the renovation of the house, but also to the cut of gemstones that I discovered in Brazil where I worked during more than 5 years. So I travel for family and business reasons when I go to buy stones where they are extracted. It allows me to meet and pay the miners, not the intermediaries.
    I spend the beginning of the year in Brazil and went back home around April 15. When I bought the house, the garden was empty and I planted fruit trees and flowers and made a small pond in the garden that is fed by the well water. This year I'd like to continue the garden and to paint the windows. The work depends on the skills of the workawayers. There is nothing very technical but the presence of people I can exchange with on multiple topics makes the life richer. I prefer the help of a couple.
    There are the permanent activities that are also good to share such as meeting winegrowers and tasting the wines of the region, cooking, visiting the surroundings that are rich in very interesting sites. I could also initiate interested workawayers to gemstone cutting. i want to make it clear that I am committed to the principles of workaway based on cultural and service exchange. I consider the workawayers above all as friends to whom I offer the best conditions of hospitality in exchange for their help.
