The willingness to get stuck in

We are an English couple that speak English and embarrassingly poor French. I'm an ex-nurse with a dream of self sufficiency and the 'good life' and my other half is a web designer so spends far too much time in front of a computer.

We are both meat eaters but happy to cook for vegetarians.

Feel free to get in touch and ask questions

We're in rural France so don't expect pubs and clubs but do expect peace, quiet and a warm welcome. There are a lot of interesting places to visit in the area - Rochechouart, Oradour Sur Glane, Limoges and St Junien is our closest major town. If you haven't got your own transport (we can lend you bikes) we normally go to the odd market or similar once a week and can give you local lifts occasionally.

We're hoping to extend the veg plot, need to improve the fencing, clear barns, cut wood, clear scrubland etc. etc. and inside we still have plenty of restoration to do with our farmhouse so all skills would be welcomed.

We're flexible in terms of length of stay and work and you'd have an en-suite room with a double bed.

The dogs live indoors so you must like dogs!
