We are a couple of early escapees from the rat race. We have lived in Turkey, Hong Kong, USA and are originally from the UK. Have just moved into our dream, smack bang in the middle of France. We live on the edge of a small village just 2 km from La Vallee des Singes, in a beautiful Maison de Maitre, with an old house in the grounds which we are planning to turn into a gite. Poitiers is just 30 minutes away with airport and TGV trains.

Enthusiasm is the main ingredient, as we would like your help doing anything from pruning shrubs and trees, to rotovating and laying lawn seed, fencing, rendering/pointing old stone walls, painting, tiling and general DIY. We are not experts, more like beginners and do not expect anyone else to be, we would just like an extra pair of hands to help out. Home cooked meals and a bedroom in our house are provided in return for help. We have bikes you can use and are also happy to provide lifts. We are new to the area ourselves and often take trips out and about to discover new sights and highlights, you are welcome to join us.
