    Description

    Bonjour, We are a fun loving family that relocated 11 years ago from the UK to France. We have enjoyed hosting over 70 people over a 6 year period. We are Matt, Becky, Edouard (10) and Henri (8) and Dusty (cocker spaniel) Heidi (labrodoodle) Bobby the cat and Pinky and Perky (the pigs) and around 9 chickens!

    2016/2017
    We are looking for house sitters over the festive season. Arrival around 14th December and until 2nd January. a few odd jobs and animal care whilst we are away.

    We are always looking for a bit of extra help to finish off those odd jobs around the property and those happy to work in the veggie garden and with animals all year round. Our busy life's are made easier with extra hands.

    Come and share our lovely home in the wild and stunning Ariege Pyrenees.

    We ask for 25 hours a week in return for three meals a day and your own room with facilities. You can make up the hours as you wish, a few hours each day or full on days! We require a couple who can work on their own with guidance, as with two children under 10 and jobs we are not always about. Use of Internet, UK land lines telephone calls and mountain bikes to get around. We ask if we cook you wash up or vice versa.
    We would prefer a male/female couple ideally aged between 24 and 45ish happy to fit in with busy family.With two active boys the house is never quiet!
    We would prefer people with some DIY experience or gardening skills. Although we are happy to teach very practical people new building skills. We only except non smokers. We eat alot of what we grow and produce. We believe in a heathly varied diet including vegetarian, meat, fish, eggs and fruits.
    The area is rich in mountain scenery and great those who like to be out and about. It is also quite and tranquil and a great place to relax. Sporting activities throughout the year are nearby from skiing to rock climbing.
    Our village has its own shop and bar/restaurant so although rural not completely cut off. We would love to welcome you to be part of out family for a few memorable weeks.
