we are currently seeking people to assist with routine animal care and woodland management, coppicing, cutting and stacking when the weather is dry. We are also renovating the property..A work in progress.


Originally from the North East of Scotland we moved to Central France and bought the abandoned farm in 2008 after selling up in Scotland in 2006 and down-sizing to a camper-van with our two huge dogs and touring around Europe looking for the right place to put down some roots. We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spend time in and have fun!

We are a couple (Laure and Emmanuel + 3 kids aged 5 to 17) and we have “eco-created” a tourism domain in the heart of Amiens’s natural site of the Hortillonnages (floating gardens). We have obtained the European Ecolabel ! Amiens is ideally situated 1h15 min North from Paris by Train and 1h from the sea side. We have 6 hut-like cottages furnished as self-catering cottages but which can be booked as a bed and breakfast. We are offering an eco-friendly stay, without any cars, and fully respectful of nature: cars are left in front of the domain and bikes and/or boats are provided to guests. The town center is only 15 minutes’ walk away.

For april 2018:
We mainly need help with preparing the cottages for new guests (cleaning, making beds etc..), preparing breakfast baskets and welcoming guests. Occasional help with gardening would be welcomed (lawn mowing, tidying up flower borders).

We are restoring a fabulous castle with 365 windows that still badly need TLC : putty, linseed oil, varnish... April, May, June, September, October are usually fine. July and August are not a time when works can be done at the chateau as visitors are around.
We would be very glad to welcome one or two people who are fond of old places and heritage. There are lots of other things that need doing as well. If you like refurbishing, if you are good at clearing up, carpentering, plumbering or gardening... you'll have lots to keep you busy !
We live in the South West of France, the Dordogne, in an area where there is lots to visit and enjoy.
We don't actually live in the chateau (so there is some travelling involved) but in town which is nice because Périgueux is a lovely little city right in the center of the Dordogne.
You will be able to share our family life with our teenage daughter. We often have our children and grand-children during the holidays.
We speak both French & En... more inside
