We immigrated a year ago from the center of Amsterdam to the center of France, the Creuse part of the Limousin. There we bought an old watermill dated from 1710. We live in a comfortable, 80s, renovated giant barn from around 1850. Beside the watermill and the millers house there is another old house we are renovating to turn into a gite/guesthouse. There is an huge pond which supplied the mill of water and near it is a field (now with cows on it) which we want to turn into a mini camping with safari tents in the future. We are a couple in our late 40's with a 5 year old son, a cat and a dog (who play, eat and sleep together) We live 3 kilometers near Dun-le-Palestel with shops and a weekly market. Its a 20 minute ride to the nearest train station in La Souterraine were we can pick you up.
We are looking for people who can help us renovating the gite. Tilers, plumbers, carpenters, all-round handyman or handygirls are very very welcome! People who like to work in the garden (which is huge!!) are also very welcome! We have an 120 m2 attic with a nice bedroom for two and there is an old French bed for one...ore two persons who realy like each other!!
Here you can see where we live...only the gte is just a few seconds in the film which I made with my cellphone before we even decided to buy this place.

We hope to welcome you!
Erik, Christianne, Keje, cat Peanut and dog Ronja.

Ps. Our cellphone number is still a Dutch one but is the quickest way to contact us. We use WhatsApp a lot!
