The Manoir de l'Echauguette is an 18th century Manor with beautiful outbuildings and a park closed of walls. It is set-up in the middle of an old North Burgundy village of 750 souls with all commodities.

About me: I am 48, completely international, born abroad, lived abroad as a child and later as an adult in London and Barcelona. I speak English and some Spanish (and French of course). I love meeting people, exchanging, teaming-up on projects.
Hélias the Golden Retriever and Mao the Labrador Retriever share the house with me.

I would welcome help:
- to help keep the courtyard and the garden great, but also better them with flowers.
It is a charming French designed garden with little alleys, with a line of fruit trees, a wall of grape, and some beautiful old trees. Timing: anytime
- For wood work, anything with house renovation. To create one more room in the attic, or help with modernizing a barn, lots of other projects possible. Timing: anytime

I ask for a minimum of one month stay, so that real projects can be finalised.
Lodging: own room with shower and toilets.
Catering: Let's be honest I am quite useless at cooking... However food is provided, if you love cooking you can help there too. Otherwise I cook simple boring stuff that you are welcome to share with me.
Nearest train stations: Tonnerre (cheaper, 1h40mns from Paris), Montbard (TGV, 1h from Paris)
