Bonjour, kia ora and hi. We are Sara, Jeremy, 15 year old Elijah and dogs, Nyx and Lion. We are kiwis and British and have found a new home here in the sunny south west of France at the Moulin. It is on 8 acres of land, some woods, a river and pond, there are some old fruit trees. But it is basically in great shape. For the last 3 years we have been tending and taming and renovating and now we have some cool projects.
First is are about to plant to plant a big vegetable patch. Being somewhat sustainable is a goal. We have chickens also.
2) We are looking at building some kennels as there is a real need for dog-stay in our area. So building or caring for dogs could be a fun thing to do.
3)We are about to renovate another property.
And there's always the upkeep of the land, with hopes at some point to build some small cabins for camping. And possibly to use 1 hectare to plant a newly developed fruit developed by France and New Zealand.

So we'd love people to come and share the journey, be part of a small community, maybe learn new skills as well as offer your ones, meet new people, see new sights.
The skills we are looking for are some carpentry, building, horticulture, ie for pruning and cutting back trees, handy, practical but above all, a good sense of humour and a willingness to pitch in with some hard work.
We look forward to sharing with you, ST Michel de Montaigne, the home of the great philosopher of the 15th century, the Dordogne and Gironde area, kayak and wine country, famous St Emilion, so pretty. There is Cap Feret, Arcachon and le Dune de pilat are an hour away, and the Pyrenees, San Sebastien are 2-3 hours away if people want to take themselves for trips, and so much more.
