Last Updated: July 9, 2018

We are an easy going English family (3 children, 16 and 18yrs at school in the UK and 19yrs living in the UK) who have recently purchased a large historic property near Agen. The house is habitable (with heating and bathrooms) but we will be reconstructing the interior to suit us.

Any assistance with general diy, landscaping, gardening, pruning fruit trees, clearing brambles and walking our crazy dog or specific trades such as roofing, tiling (a large swimming pool), plastering or plumbing would be gratefully received. The main job at the moment is getting the swimming pool (abandoned for 20 years) going for the summer.

A lot of the work we need help with is outside, clearing brambles, gardening, landscaping, rebuilding stone walls and keeping on top of the vegetable garden.

For 5

We offer you a bed, good company and delicious meals (we are not vegetarian and would find hosting a vegan very difficult). We have 2 comfortable double bedrooms and one twin bedroom available for our Helpx friends.

I am an experienced, qualified English language teacher and would be happy to help you if you want to learn or practise your English here too. We speak French and some German and would love to host any helpers with a sense of humour.

We are 20 minutes from Agen, which is on the TGV line, giving easy links to Paris (3hrs), Bordeaux (1hr) and Toulouse (1hr).

We have space for 1-4 helpers until August and from September (but not during August).
