Région: AquitaineHello you, I'm Thomas, two children living here for 20 years and growing sheep on a 80 hectare forest and field place. Since always, my house has been open, and work away is for me, a way to carry on sharing nice work, with nice people in a nice place. It's a well kept old traditionnal farm, at 4 kms from the little village, lost in the forest, very calm, lot of foot path with rivers next to here. On a side of this land, a non commercial activity has taken place, witch is made first to awake school children about their environnemnt, we also have there a permaculture veg garden, self construction events, and some activities around the biodiversity along the little wild rivers of the area.
Région: GersWe are an English couple early/mid 60's living in the Gers, South West France. We live in a tiny hamlet about 1.5 kilometres away from a small village in a beautiful area 3 kilometres from the nearest market town, Eauze, the capital of the Armagnac region. The house is set in 7 acres and is surrounded by vineyards and the area is also known for its fields of sunflowers. We also have a selection of house cats, barn cats and three retired horses. We moved here eight years ago to renovate our house, a farmhouse build in the Landes style, which at that time was a total ruin. Eight years on the house is almost finished but we have work left to do on the exterior, creating a collombage wall all along one side and taking off the render and exposing and pointing the stone walls to create pierre-apparente. Dave is a retired engineer with a lot of building experience so is able to train/instruct in various aspects of building whilst completing the required work. Ann is a keen amateur cook and gardener and is happy to give guidance/ideas in various culinary and gardening skills. Apart from a beautiful area of France we have a large size swimming pool and enjoy spending a long summers' evening over a barbecue and a glass or two of local wine. We are an easy going couple who enjoy good food - including meat. We have a wide range of taste in music. Many towns and villages have fetes during the summer months ranging from a small band or singer to Tempo Latino in Vic Fezensac and Jazz in Marciac. You can also join us in a weekly game of petanque in the village with the locals or even venture a game of quilles (a regional skittles game).
