Old style rural France

"Hope for a better, less materialistic world"

This is the Deal

My wife and I are in our sixties. We own 65 hectares of woodland, five cottages which we rent out either seasonally or by the year and 65 hectares of farmland farmed by our daughter who rears sheep under the organic label. There are also 3 small lakes on the property. All of this is situated in SW France about 70Km. NE of Bordeaux

Welcome Skills: Building skills, esp. restoration, forestry skills, Gardening


The accommodation out of the holiday season is in one of the cottages: during holiday periods, it is in our own house. You would have your own bedroom and bathroom. My wife is a great cook and all meals are eaten with us. We are very much in the country and there are lots of tracks for walking and cycling in the surrounding area.

What Else

My wife is a mother of five children: she loves people.
I am a little less enamoured of mankind in general, but warm to those who strive for a greater good for this world
