  • Description



    We are a French-Belgian family with 3 kids (Louis 20 - Esther Phil 18 - Aude 16), living in a small hamlet nearby Limoges. My husband (Etienne 48) is a jurist and a musician in his free-time and I (Joke 47) am a registered pediatric nurse, but health-issues made me stay home since January 2018. I keep myself busy with volunteers work, DIY and Qi Gong .
    Over the last 17 years we've been renovating bit by bit our house ( and there 're still things to be done)
    Until 2017 we had a "family-garden-house-work" life, but me having to stop working, changed our way of living.
    We're looking for helping hands to do the garden, help in the house, some DIY projects are still in waiting, and so are some small building projects.
    We speak French, Dutch, English and German, but not every member of the family speaks every language fluently. ( additionnaly Esther Phil learns Spanish and can have a basic conversation in French Sign Language)
    We enjoy evenings (outside) discussing, playing guitar or games, watch a movie together or just doing nothing.
    As Etienne has his job and my energy levels don't always allow me to do what I want to do, it is best if you have some autonomy and after previous experiences we made the choice only to host couples (or two friends).
    Since autumn 2022 Louis has his own apartment , Aude is a boarder and Esther comes and goes .... so organization, home dynamics and activities are different during the week or weekends/school vacations.

  • Aide


    The GARDEN is an "ALL THE TIME" project.
    We've got a small vegetable garden and the rest of the space are flowerbeds (half-wildered) and (fruit) trees
    There's a lot off cutting to be done and a fence to be taken out.

    If the weather doesn't allow to be outside there are several projects inside the house and the barn to be continued....

    Autres infos...

    Our hamlet is very quiet.
    It's a nice countryside for hiking and biking, there is possibility to kayak on the Vienne or you can just read a book in the hammock.
    You can visit Limoges "the city of fire arts" (there is a direct bus going from our hamlet twice a day, a round trip ticket costs 4.8€) .
    The Memory Centre with the martyr village of Oradour-sur-Glane is at 15km from our village.
    At less than 1 km from our hamlet there are a horse ranch and the Buddhist Centre Shambhala Dechen Chöling.

    People with allergies, beware...We have 2 cats, live in an old house with stone walls and wooden floors and we aren't fussy about cleaning the house all the time (so it can get dusty sometimes).

    Smoking is allowed outside.

    The pictures may give you an idea of our garden, the landscapes around our house and the Vienne.
    And some pictures are from the first workaway projects...
