WHAT IS LA GIRAUDIERE AND WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE?
La Giraudiere a typical stone built chaertaise masters house and was owned by the family Giraud. The family moved away some years ago and the property fell into disrepair. In 1997 Myself, two of my brothers and a friend formed a French property company and decided to purchase and restore La Giraudiere with the idea of putting together a small tourist complex. The path with the French authorities as been long but at last we have everything in place for the go ahead.

Full bed and Board in South West France for 182 euros per week plus 21 hours of your time doing or applying your skill towards a project that will be here for the rest of your life for you to visit time and time again.

WHY ARE WE MAKING THIS OFFER?
La Giraudiere is only 60% complete and there is still a lot of work needed to be done. Apart from the  construction work there is also the  marketing of the project which again as started but needs further attention and ideas.
I am here in south west France and have been for the last seven years struggling every step of the way to put this project in place.
The battle with the French Authorities and the administration as been long and exhausting both on myself and the finances of the project.
Marketing as started with our website and we have just made live our golf tours in the region although, at this time, we will not be using La Giraudiere for the accommodation. So what we offer is a partnership your give us 25 hours help and 182 euros and in return you get an additional 3 days full bed and board and the freedom to discover this region.

BEEN THINKING OF MOVING, WORKING ABROAD?
Then this has got to be a great opportunity for you to test the water before you dive. Come and see if you could hack it living and working in another country. Maybe you have thought about moving to France then better still come and practice your French, see if you can adapt to France and come and learn from the mistakes we have made.
