  • Descrição


    We live in the beautiful area of Perigord, which is a very peaceful location but only a short drive to shops, bars, cafes. Ideal for you to have a drivers licence as we can put you on our car insurance.
    We have 4 stone cottages which we rent out during the summer months. We have 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. We are set in over 5 acres of land. One of the hot tubs needs decking around it and one of the pools need redecking. We want to build a bread oven outside, we have all of the original stones to do this. We have a concrete floor in one of the barns where we store laundry , which needs to be resurfaced. Plus we need help in maintaining the grounds and replanting some areas.
    You would live in one of the gites where you will have your own fully equipped kitchen, dining and lounge area. Upstairs is a large king size bedroom with an ensuite shower and toilet. There is private entry along with a small enclosed garden.
    You could also use one of the hot tubs whenever you like. Fantastic on a clear night as you can see so many stars as we don’t experience much air pollution here.
    Loads of great walks on the doorstep, which would be very appreciated by our dogs.
    We have a great dog called Teddy, who is shortly going to be joined by a puppy called Miel.
    Phil is great at DIY and we have a lot of equipment to help run and maintain the property. You could learn a lot of new skills whilst helping out.
    Phil is also a great cook and has his own smoker, which he uses for cold and hot food smoking. He would be really happy to share his food knowledge with you.
