We are an English couple who moved to France 4 years ago because we wanted a different lifestyle to bring up our young children. Our house is still being renovated and therefore is not the smartest place, with building materials all over the place and half started projects surrounding us. We have just less than 2 hectares which comprises the house, orchard area, vegetable garden, fields and lake. Much of this is overgrown and we are gradually clearly, replanting and developing. Please note, we live in a small village, with no amenities close by.

Although we were both experienced with renovating houses in the UK we didnít anticipate how much having children would impact on our ability to get things done and have therefore not moved forward as fast as we expected.

We are smokers, although not in the house and we eat mostly meat orientated meals although are happy to try vegetarian meals occasionally.

Small farm - having sheep, chickens, geese, rabbits and pygmy goats. The land is woodland and grassland and our aim is to manage the woods and develop more pasture land for the sheep. We also have about 300 grape vines of various types. The house is old and renovation is almost complete - it dating from around 1700. Before we bought the property in 2005 the land was never properly fenced and cared for - but we hope to remedy this within the next few years, but there is a lot of fencing, scrub clearing and tree planting and cutting to do. Butiat is a very small hamlet comprising 6 houses in total - 17 persons, but one house is owned by English people using it as a holiday home. The Charente (Department 16) is mainly agriculture. The area is famous for its Pineau, a fortified wine used as an aperitif.

Hi, we've got a bed and breakfast in the Charente in France. We're nearly there with the renovation, but there's still a few last things to do:

1. Installation of a small kitchen (like the one in my photo - which is the communal kitchen in our B&B).

2. Installation of a 2nd bathroom (similar to the one visible in the photos) for our family use.

3. There are 2 rooms which are still waiting to have their ceilings replaced.

You will need to be qualified and experienced in general building work: Basic plumbing, electrical and renovation skills etc (installation of a bathroom and kitchen and some plaster work..)

Housework: General housework, ironing etc and help with the Bed and breakfast (often required at weekends)

General Gardening work and help with the animals.

Would suit a couple.

I've added 6 photos: One of our B&B rooms; our billy goat, Charles; our front door; the communal kitchen for our guests; one of our guests bathrooms and a photo of Confolen... more inside

Join us in our exciting adventure to manage an ancient hazel forest, collect firewood, construct fencing/hedgerows, build a new base for the tipi, construct dry compost toilets, keep on top of the veg patch, create a forest garden and much much more..! Sean is an accomplished builder and can act as overseer to our projects, Nikki is pretty good too, but we're both busy on many projects (Sean is registered builder and Nikki runs a successful B&B and massage business) so we need help and hands on deck! Back packer style accommodation (up to 8 people) offered in the summer or B&B (for 2) in the winter... Fabulous opportunity to share in our vision, and enjoy a fair exchange of skills. We are very experienced travel dudes and would like helpers ready to get stuck in and participate (5 hours a day/5 days a week (flexible of course) in return for an excellent experience and stay at Under The Lime Tree.
