ACCOMMODATION STILL AVAILABLE FOR JUNE AND JULY.

We are a young (mid 50's) retired English couple who through an act of folly (which we still laugh about) own a 25 metre high historic Lime Kiln with several outbuildings. Our plan is to use the kiln as a climbing/abseiling centre in the future.

We have lived here for just over 3 years and still have many ongoing projects both in the garden and in the home.

Located between the Loire Valley and the Dordogne, outside of a small hamlet, nearest shops 5km, within walking distance of local bar (bikes supplied).

We have a large veggie area with raised beds which have produced excellent crops.

Our home is shared with a small dog, who is very friendly. Gillian breeds chickens, so we get to enjoy fresh eggs and meat.

The accommodation on offer is a caravan or tent, and have meals with us. We provide breakfast and 2 home cooked meals a day served with wine/beer.

Wifi available.

We provide gite accommodation for guests. It is run by us, a British family living in France. We are currently looking for help to prepare our business for the coming season; this includes, cleaning, painting, renovating and pointing exterior walls, general DIY, gardening, fencing etc. This place is a beautiful 17th century Charentaise farmhouse with its own guest house. Set in one acre of well tended, established garden, the houses surround the enclosed courtyard, at the start of a country lane which leads to the valley below, and quiet walks along the small stream. The walled swimming-pool with covered terrace, is behind both houses, beyond which are uninterrupted views over open countryside.

We live about an hour from Angouleme and Cognac, on the border of the Charente and the Dordogne. It's very rural, so loving the counrtyside is essential!The closest village is Aubeterre, about 4 kms away, a pituresque little hamlet, typical of the region, officially voted one of the prettiest villages in France.
The property includes two gites, a swimming pool, and a nice big garden full of work oppurtunities! The help would stay in one of the gites, and would be welcome to eat with the family, in the house.
