Domaine with 4 hectares of land.I go to a lot of dog shows so I go missing for 2-4 days at the most one week. 2 retired racehorses. Private chapel on the ground. Old farm dated 1731. 6 Border Terrier dogs. 1 large Italian rescue dog. Walled garden. Walled land. Needs some field attention. Garden could do with some imagination. 2 plantane/sycamore trees that persistently drop leaves and although the branches have been cut twice, they grow back. Property is renovated but as my energy cut out I might have wall papered only 3/4 of a room. But it is not too noticeable. There is a super 48m garden kitchen that I created out of 3 vide caves but have yet to find anyone to change the already purchased double glazed windows. Or tunnel through the wall to mount the chimney for the Italian forno wood burner. The place is now lacking some energy as I reconstructed from roof down. I even put electricity in the chapel. I converted the huge tractor shed into an indoor riding school which the horses... more inside

we do need an electrician (who is familiar with french system.....i know, big ask!)
and, anyone who may be able to help with re-roofing, tiling and rendering, plumbing/bathroom fitting.....the list goes on!!!!.

Having been a volunteer myself on various organic farms and homes, I feel it is my turn to open my home to travelers. I'm 26yo living on my family's property.

The property has various outbuildings, chickens, a large greenhouse, a vegetable patch, fruit trees and generally just a huge garden to play with. You would be hosted in a wooden chalet, where I live with housemates. It's a friendly environment and a creative one too!

Activities vary here:
1)We're in the middle of renovating an old barn. At the moment, I need all hands on deck to clear the space! It's filled with wooden furniture, some to be turned into fire wood others to be cleaned off and stored.

2)We're creating a sustainable garden, playing with the digger to shape the land, planting trees, preparing the beds for next spring, sewing seeds, turn over compost heap, fix the greenhouse and also prepare the beds, weeding, watering, cutting old branches etc...

3)we've got a couple of workshops, with all the tools... more inside

Hi, I live in a beautiful manor house that was built in 1825, the house is situated on the grounds of an old monastery, there are two chapels (13th and 15th century) in the courtyard, the house has its own water source. What is needed is a bit of cheering up (harmonising) The work will be, painting the walls, (see photo) shutters and windows, some indoor painting, gardening, making a vegetable garden, tiding up the carp pond, cutting down bamboo, (Making bamboo art?) and some general maintenance....The aim is to make this fun:) It is a lovely enviroment, ideal for creative people. In the past the house was owned by an artist, and a concert pianist.....Now by me, a rock guitarist...Lol..It is peaceful most of the time.

In the house there are two kitchens, 4 Bathrooms with showers, and 5 WC's so one can have privacy if you wish.....

There a table-tennis table in the orangerie, and a swimming pool for use in the summer…Unless you enjoy a cold dip?

I am often asked to play guit... more inside
