We are an english couple who have been living in France for over twenty years, with our two sons aged 19 and 15. We run an organic vineyard producing red and (sometimes) rosé wines at the property. Most of the work we do is manual and we do need help from time to time, particularly at harvest time, which is usually mid to late September/early October.

We enjoy having people from different backgrounds and countries to stay with us here, adding new experiences for us and our children.

There is always stuff to do in the vegetable garden and around the house, and cooking etc. Guests are more than welcome to cook should they want to, as it makes a great (ex)change.
We also have a small flock of sheep which started as only 3 but is now eleven as we have found no acceptable means of limiting the numbers....

We can offer accommodation and meals to anybody who wants to come and help us, in exchange for 4 or 5 hours work a day, on average.
