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 t... more inside

We are Wilf and Rosi and we moved here to the south Vienne two years ago. We live in an old farm with our dog and cats, in a small hamlet in some delightful countryside about an hour southwest of Poitiers.

Rosi used to be a primary school teacher in England, while Wilf is a psychology graduate and an ex-driving instructor. Rosi is the one who gets on with the work! She has done plastering, tiling, some electrics and plumbing, and has a fair bit of knowledge about roofing and such like, since being here in France.

The house is now habitable - we have already completed a lot of work, including electrics, new bathroom, roof etc - however we want to expand a bit and need help with a bit more roofing and building work on some of the many outbuildings. Also, last summer our beautiful barn collapsed so we have a lot of clearance work to do - and help would be greatly appreciated in the reclamation of some of the timbers, stone and tiles.

Rosi has managed to clear and sort out muc... more inside

I live in Poitiers,a middle size town located on France's west center side ( 180 kms from the Atlantic Ocean ).Paris is 340 kms from Poitiers and can be easily reached by train ( a 2 hours long trip ) and Bordeaux is 250kms away.
Near my house,you will find a bus stop that can bring you to downtown ( frequent stops ).
Poitiers is a city mixing historical interests and a great diversity of fauna and flora interests as seen in the various museums, parks and zoos around the town.We also located on the famous way of St Jacques of Compostelle.
My personnal interests revolve around nature, one's health, natural medecine, relationships, travelling.My own son lives in Melbourne and I get to visit him as often as possible.
I understand English and Spanish.
For those interested in coming to visit me, I'll ask them to help me with some manual work like painting the bathroom and a bedroom that I want to renovate. This is a small room but I'll need also help to move the furniture out.Som... more inside
