Area: Gers, SW FranceHello, we are Jamie and Suzie and we live in an 18thC farmhouse (we don't actually run a farm) in beautiful countryside, surrounded by woods, lakes, valleys and farmland. It is a very peaceful, rural situation, the nearest small town, Marciac is 8kms away. We're not on the bus route - there are bus connections in nearby villages where we are happy to drop off and collect helpers who want to explore the area in their free time, 2 days per week. This really is a place for lovers of nature, there is very little nightlife! Although both fluent in French, we speak English at home. If you want to practice French we can introduce you to our friendly neighbours who are always very welcoming, we can offer you help and encouragement as well as French television, books and local french classes. We have lots of work landscaping, cleaning, painting & decorating, gardening, carrying logs around, general DIY. Our garden gate has collapsed and needs replanting in the soil so a workaway with carpentry skills would be very welcome. We ask for 26 hours work per week and provide 3 meals per day with plenty of food and comfortable accommodation. As well as growing our own organic vegetables and maintaining a good sized garden, we paint and run small residential art courses (with full board) on certain dates June-Sept and offer Bed&Breakfast during the August jazz festival in Marciac so general household help appreciated. Jamie, who is also a professional musician, teaches painting and music, I enjoy cooking and we love to taste food made by workaways from different areas of the world! Although it is always nice to meet like minded people, we're not actually looking for help/tuition with art or music People with ALLERGIES please note: in the house we have 2 very friendly dogs and a large cat, and in the garden there are free range chickens who provide us with lovely eggs, so fur and feathers abound!
