We are looking for some help in renovating our ancient house in the (Charente) France. The house is technically a building site. At the moment we have just had a new roof and are now forming 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the upstairs of the house. There are lots of jobs we need help with: hacking off plaster, pointing, rendering, gardening etc.- even a second opinion would be nice to have. I have all tools, etc. on site or can get them. You can help as much or as little as you like (minimum 3 hours a day). We are willing to show you how to do things, but if you already have skills - even better. In return we are happy to provide food, beverages, accommodation and transfers to and from LimogesAirport/ Train Station.
We can accommodate a single person or a couple as the bedroom has a double bed.
There is hot and cold running water, shower, wc. And use of a washing machine. Hairdryer and towels are provided. The hamlet is set in farmland and is very quiet. If peace and quiet is what your are looking for, this is ideaL. The nearest village Pressignac is 30 mins walk away (15 minutes bike). We have a bike which you can use or can provide a lift once or twice a week to the local town for shopping etc.

We have lived here for 15 years and this is our second project in France, although we have taken this project on, we are struggling with it and would appreciate the help. You must like dogs and cats, we have 1 large dog and 2 cats.

Look forward to hearing from you if you would like to come and help!
