About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

I have bought a lovely house in a wine village in south-west France. The house is in impeccable condition but I need some alterations done, including the creation of two walls in brick and plaster. Good food and a lovely place to stay, and a charming town not far away.

I'm on the left as you look at the photo. I'm British. I moved to France two years ago, and loved it so much that I decided to stay. I still love Britain, of course. I am starting a new enterprise - a change of life for me! I am very sociable. I once taught English as a foreign language, so if you want to brush up your skills I can help.

Work exchange deal

  • private room, shared room

The main work that needs doing is building a wall to separate the bathroom from the dressing room, then make two more bedrooms and a bathroom in the attic. So at the moment the accommodation is either the second and third bedrooms, or the bed on the mezzanine floor (which is separated off by curtains), or in the attic, which is large but not yet separated into bedrooms. And, of course, the use of all the house's facilities - kitchen, wifi, washing machine, terrace and so on.

  • shared meals

You can cook for yourself (food supplied) or eat with me and any others who are staying here and friends who come around - whatever suits you best!

  • no money is involved
