It's 50 min from Paris by car /train. We are currently renovating the building and its gardens to restore its past glory. I'm a photographer and my wife is an art director.

Here you will leave in a castle rich of 500 years of history. Volunteers will learn the local and regional history of the Castle. We will be more than happy to tell volunteers about the extraordinary past of our home where the legend tells that the queen Blanche de Castille used to stay when she went to the nearby abbey. You will discover life in typical French village. The solidarity between peoples her is very strong. Our house is in the most beautiful part of the Vexin.
This spring I will mostly work on gardening. We need help in our 14 acres of garden and meadows. You don’t need specific skills to help, a simple willingness to help and a practical sense is enough. We will take care of our hedges, wood and orchard. We will plant a lot of vegetable to take care in the kitchen garden and arrange things to live as much as possible in self sufficiency. There are also some woodwork, and knowledge in this could be good.
We can also consider masonry help if you are interested. We will also need help for preparing meals and babysitting.
If you like olds motors , you will be served and we will try to restart my motorcycles, tractor and car from the 30's to the 70's.
