Retired Australian couple who live in La Creuse, Limousin, France. Bill 62, Information Technology Manager and Wendy 57, Online Communications. Married 36 years. We love to travel everywhere and anywhere.
We owned a Lemon and Lime farm in South Australia and had ducks and chickens. We have travelled extensively throughout Australia and have lived in Adelaide, Mount Gambier, Perth, Kalgoorlie, Darwin and Melbourne.
We are keen to take on house sitting /home exchange opportunities. We are non smokers and are extremely clean, tidy and considerate. I love gardening, quilting, reading books, writing, skiing, hiking, meeting new people, travelling, cooking, drinking wine, skyping with my elderly parents and family back in Australia and numerous other interests. Whilst Bill is a versatile handyman - loves his man-cave that he has set up in the barn.
We have a valid visa with plans to stay so we can apply for permanent residency.
We have some french language and have enrolled in classes in La Creuse. As well as volunteering at the local parish (we are not religious), we have integrated into our local commune.
We purchased our house in La Creuse in 2014 and moved here in July 2016 from Melbourne, Australia. We have finished renovating and are now keen to see as much of France and Europe and everywhere else.
House sitting/ house exchange provides us with a way in which we can experience living like a local whilst making new friends and helps those that are in need of a much deserved break or want to swap and experience our lifestyle in rural France.
I grew up with dogs and Bill with cats. Even though we don't have any pets we know what's involved with caring for animals.
We have completed a number of house sits but as we are new to the home exchange world, haven't completed an exchange as yet (although our very first swap has been locked in for July 2020).
We would welcome the opportunity to house sit / home exchange for you if dates and places correspond.
We are kind, considerate, caring, tidy and easy going non smokers and would take great care with your property and pets.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like further info or maybe want to skype.
Wendy and Bill
