    Description

    We’re Joe and Amanda, we’re English and we’ve lived in France since 2008, after a year of travelling Europe in a bus we converted ourselves with our four amazing children.

    We bought our beautiful old farmhouse in 2017 and absolutely love our life here in the mountains. Now that all our children have left home, we're looking for general help with the renovation as well as gardening, wood cutting, wood-stacking, and a bit of cleaning in exchange for communal meals and some good French living !

    There's always a new project on the go and we really love the whole process of transforming our space - any help will be just that - my husband and I are doing everything ourselves (my husband is highly skilled and I am an enthusiastic assistant!)

    Joe’s a great teacher and there would be possibilities to learn for those who are interested, but plenty to do around the house and garden for those who don’t feel at ease with DIY. If a workawayer already has those skills we would be delighted to give more responsibility.

    We run a small creative digital studio together – 43 Media, Joe is a photographer and cinematographer, and we record music, take photos, run workshops and do the lighting and sound for live events. I also teach English to adults and business students.

    We are happy to share our love of music and of photography - and it's a beautiful environment for artists and writers. There are great walks to be had in the forests, and we have a very special stretch of river 5 minutes walk from the house with little water falls which is perfect for a refreshing dip at the end of a hot day !
    We have a gentle, fun-loving dog called Nairobi, (we think she's a Border Collie cross !), and 7 chickens.

    We are 4 kms from the nearest town and there is no public transport. But drivers could borrow our car from time to time - and bikes would be a real bonus ! Obviously having your own transport would be a big advantage for you !
