  • Description


    We are Leonie and Jacques, the owners of Le Manoir Gabard. Leonie is Australian born and has lived in Europe for over 30 years. Jacques is typically French, loves bread and is very passionate about the environment.

    The property comprises of the main house which we live in and 3 gites which we rent out, mainly over the summer months. Françoise lives in one of the gites all year round and is very discreet. We have a large garden which includes an organic vegetable patch. We also have many animals including a dog, 2 cats, 2 horses, 2 goats, 3 sheep, 2 chickens, 2 ducks, etc.

    Leonie is also a yoga teacher and runs classes and monthly retreats at the property.

    We will make sure you have everything needed to make your stay as comfortable as can be! Our family is dotted around the world so we naturally love discovering new cultures and meeting new people. We speak French, English and German.

    You will have your own room with double bed and bathroom (which may be shared if there's a second workaway). We will provide you with breakfast, lunch and dinner on the days you work. We mainly eat vegetarian meals and fish with some veggies from our garden. Some help in the kitchen would be nice!

    We are close to Aubeterre which is known as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It's also a lovely place to go out. We are lucky to be about 1h30 from the beach and 1 hour away from bigger cities like Angouleme or Bordeaux. The train takes you to both pretty easily.
