Area: Midi PyreneesHi there! We're looking for a couple or a single male that can be left to get on with projects. We live in the Couseran National Park, Ariege in a little hamlet. Our nearest town is Saint Girons which is famous throughout the Pyrenees for it's Saturday market. We are well travelled folk ourselves however becoming pregnant with our number 2 we decided to buy this beautiful farmhouse and settle down. We chose here purely for the lifestyle. Rich in food, rich in health and rich in beauty. We have a good mixture of local and international friends and we are a bilingual family. Life here in the hamlet is pretty special. Although our neighbors are a lot older (and were born here in the hamlet, literally) they have welcomed us with open arms and accepted us as one of their own and have been teaching us their ways. We would always welcome some help around the house and there is a never ending list of jobs big and small to do on the property ranging from gardening, landscaping, building, barn clearance etc. The area that we live in is for folk that love the outdoors. We are 1hr 30 mins direct south of Toulouse, 3hrs to either coast (Biarittz on the Atlantic and Perpignan on the Med) 4hrs to Barcelona. Andorra is just a short hop and a skip too. Our nearest ski resort, Guzet, is 45 mins drive away. Get in contact if you like what you read.
