Area: Midi PyreneesWe live in the french pyrenees and have renovated the house in our small mountain home. We have ongoing building/renovation work, landscaping and gardening projects. Nina is a yoga instructor and Ian (background in architecture and theatre) is a woodturner/builder maker. We have availability from mid May onward. Having moved here last autumn we are now completing a small barn which needs some external pointing and some zinc guttering work and a timber deck which doubles as a guest/helper house. There are brambles to be strimmed/slashed, trees to be cleared up etc. Its mostly outdooor work and physical, we like to do it as and when we feel like but usually in short bursts, a few hours at a time leaving time to read, snooze and generally enjoy the nature and environment here. We are happy for people to come for a week or two we are also interested in the possibility of a couple who mighty like to spend several months staying through the winter as helpers/house sitters if we are away from time to time. Ian and Nina.

In Irish it means ‘little place in the back’ and was the name given to this field by the folks who farmed this site years back. We have no children and no pets. We are two artists, James and Connie. We especially enjoy American blues and Irish traditional music.
