Nearly 30 years ago, we fell in love with an old farmhouse because of its unspoilt countryside setting and beautiful views, and have been renovating it over the years.
Jean François is now retired, Tracey still works in real estate.
We need a helping hand in the garden (ideally during November and March), and possibly a few DIY projects, for a total of about 15h/week.
We can offer accommodation in an independent guest house (across the courtyard from our house) with its own facilities.
We are a 20 minute drive from Périgueux, the main town in the Dordogne.
There is a good railway service to Bordeaux (1h).
Bricolage et projets de construction
The Dordogne is steeped in history, with many pre-historic caves, beautiful medieval villages, and over a thousand chateaux.
Experience the real french way of life with farmers markets and country cuisine.
The garden has been a bit neglected over the past year and needs some cutting back, pruning and planting. Some previous gardening experience would be useful. We have a beautiful new vegetable garden (thanks to our wonderful first Workawayers), so the old one needs to be tidied. If the weather isn't good, then some painting needs doing inside the house too.
We can offer accommodation in an independent guest house with its own facilities : kitchen, shower room, WC, king size double or 2 single beds, wood burning stove, washing machine, car park, ping pong table, barbecue, deck chairs...
No smoking inside the guest house.
We can help with train/bus pick-ups, ideally we recommend you having your own transport for day to day use.
