We've been renovating and converting a huge barn using natural materials and reusing the original materials where possible.
We are situated in the heart of the forest in the Perigord Natural Park 4km from nearest town, which is lively and beautiful. If you want to be totally immersed in nature and appreciate the wildlife, this is the place for you.
Currently we need help with gardening, cleaning, maybe cooking and someone to build a brick barbecue (unless you could make one from an oil barrel.)

We are looking for help - at this time it is mostly grass cutting and clearing.

Accommodation is in a self contained cottage next door to our home. Bedding and towels are provided.
