Area: Midi PyreneesWe are a French / English couple living 60km south of Toulouse, in the department of Ariège (South-west France, Midi-Pyrenees Region). We are both actors with hectic scheduals so our large garden tends to get the better of us and the foliage runs wild! We could really use a hand looking after it. Little by little we are redecorating our century old house too so it would be great if we could have a helping hand with that aswell. At times when we have a few workawayers with us it's great to have someone that likes cooking too!
