Hi there

My boyfriend and I (I'm Irish and 35, he's English and 41) are leaving behind our hectic life in London in search of a more peaceful, self sufficient lifestyle. We have bought an acre and a half of land in rural France's Dordogne area (about a mile from the stunning river itself). As of 1st November 2017, we are building a home, 2 gites (to eventually let out) and a pool. Aaron is a roofer by trade and owned a solar energy company for years so the focus is on solar/thermal energy and building a place that will have low bills and is environmentally sound. So if you want to learn a trade or more about solar, Aaron is the perfect teacher! We will have vegetable beds, chickens for eggs and in a few months plan to get a dog and a few other animals. We are doing the entire build ourselves! We would love someone to help us out for as many days as they can in exchange for food, a few beers, a roaring fire and your own tent to sleep in (we will also be in a tent from April to October and can host during that period). It will be very much back to basics for a year or 2. First priority is a secure building to house belongings and washing facilities. The village and surrounding area is idyllic! We would love to host you and (having visited the area frequently) tell you where in the area you must see.

Thank you for reading and travel well!

Catherine and Aaron
