We are an easy going English couple with a large historic property near Agen. We have 3 'children', 18 ,19 and 21yrs who are studying/working in the UK and regularly visit. We are renovating the house and outbuildings as a gites project.

A lot of the work we need help with is outside, so any assistance with general diy, landscaping, gardening, pruning fruit trees clearing brambles, rebuilding stone walls, walking our crazy dog and keeping on top of the vegetable garden would be gratefully received.
Additionally, it would be fantastic if there were helpers with specific trades such as roofing, plastering or plumbing. We are also about to start re-roofing one of the outbuildings and would love help with that too.

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 available for our Helpx friends, so would also suit a small group of friends looking to travel together. We don't mind smokers - but if you do, you must smoke outside!

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 are now looking for easy-going helpers for October/November.
