We are a french-belgian family with 3 kids (Louis 19 - Esther 17 - Aude 14), living in a small hamlet nearby Limoges. My husband (Etienne 46) is a jurist and a musician in his free-time and I (Joke 46) am a registered pediatric nurse, but health-issues made me a homestay mom in January 2018.
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.
We enjoy evenings outside discussing, playing guitare or games, watch a movie together or just doing nothing.
As Etienne has his job and my energylevels don't always allow me to do what I want to do, we think it is best if you have some autonomy and we experienced with our previous gasts that it is nicer for you if you come as a couple or two friends.

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....

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 4.2€) .
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.
