  • Descrição


    We are Ian and Corrie, a creative couple who love living in the wonderful part of France that is the Lot et Garonne. We live in a stunning and peaceful house set in a number of hectares and we are surrounded by birds, incredible views, woods and other wildlife. The village of Castillonnes is just a 5 km bike ride away...

    We are slowly bringing our house back to life and are focusing on the barn and the pigioniére and the garden. Right now we are working on painting walls internally and also gardening jobs such as cutting back brambles and building raised beds..

    We are looking for help with painting around the house - also essentially if you would be to be happy handling wood and helping on projects such as creating raised beds as we aim to run retreats in the future (demonstrating an eco life-style).

    We have a cat and a puppy - the latter of which is incredibly curious, so may help or hinder progress - depends on your perspective :)
    We are looking for a positive person who loves animals and is not afraid of getting stuck in. We work Monday to Friday from 9.30am. .

    We are both vegetarians. We can take you to the local markets so you can choose what you enjoy. We eat well and generally healthily and ethically. It is not unusual to pick up a guitar at the end of a hard day.

    Why not drop us a line? We're looking forward to meeting you!
