Bonjour, kia ora and hi. We are Sara, Jeremy, 13 year old Elijah and dog, Nyx. We are kiwis and Jeremy is British and have found a new home here in the sunny south west of France. We have just bought our Moulin. It hasn't been a working mill for a long time. It is on 8 acres of land, some woods, a river and pond, there are some old fruit trees. It is overgrown quite a bit, ivy, wisteria out of control etc. But it is basically in great shape. We are wanting to plant a big vegetable patch. We are looking at using 1 hectare to plant a newly developed fruit and basically bring the property to some use and order.
The house itself needs mainly interior painting, decorating, though if there was a stonemason, we are looking to create more windows, and there is a grenier/attic to turn into a bedroom, with some plumbing to be done.
So 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, St Emilion, so pretty, and so much more.
