We are an Australian couple who retired to live in the centre of a small town in a large, very old house and garden in the beautiful warm, sunny Charente in rural France. We have 1 very friendly cat. In exchange for a friendly, pleasant stay we would appreciate some help.
We have just bought an old farm 10 minutes away on La Lien, a stream that runs into the Charente a few hundred meters downstream. So we are moving out of our big house in town, and would love a hand to move.
Ruffec is a small rural town. There is a train station, with a regular TER service to Angouleme and Poitiers, from where the LGV runs between Paris and Bordeaux.
