***UPDATE - we have room from now until 28th May for 1 or 2 people***

A big old stone town house in a pretty little market town on the banks of the Dordogne river, at the heart of the Bordeaux wine region. Just up the road from Saint Emilion, easy train access to Bordeaux and the Atlantic coast.
The house is beautiful and huge and we love it most when it's lively and full with lots of people at the table.
We have 4 big bedrooms, so 2 couples can be easily accommodated in separate rooms. All of these rooms finally have bathrooms!
We the owners are Kate 48 (English) and Fabian 47 (half English half French). We tend to speak French to each other but we are both bilingual. Kate is a restauranteur, and Fabian is a wine journalist (yes, your liver may suffer!) / musician / DIY man. Our restaurant is 3km away from the house on the banks of the river (latablerouge.com). The restaurant is closed in the winter, so all the cooking gets done at home.

We are Enid and Kevin, a very active couple in our 60s. We are British but have lived here in SW France for 13 years.We have restored an 18th century farmhouse on a hectare of land. We are establishing a permaculture garden and taming the land which has been left idle for many years. We have chickens and two dogs. This is our second property in this village. We sold the last one after 10 years running holiday cottages and had lots of helpxers working with us on that project (no reviews I'm afraid as we have a new e mail so had to create a new account.) We need someone to help with cutting bamboo, fencing in the veg plot and the chicken area, building compost bins and general garden work. You would work 4/5 hours per day for 5 days and then have 2 days off. Work is mainly mornings but some time in the afternoon too - we like to take a long lunch (we're a bit French that way!)! You would have indoor accommodation - we have a twin room or a double room and you would have your own bat... more inside

Beautiful chateau situated in the cote de Blaye vineyards, close to St Emillion and Bordeaux. We are an English family that consists of mother, daughter and 4 children so if you want to learn
French we are possibly not for you. Our project which we are just about to start is a serious building renovation-garden project and we would really like a person or a couple who can just get stuck in and work hard along with us and do whatever is needed that day. Although we work hard we also like to play hard. Happy to have you for a few weeks or more. We will give you your own room and food.
