We are a fun loving family that relocated 12 years ago from the UK to France. We have enjoyed hosting over 70 people over a 6 year period. We are Matt, Becky, Edouard (11) and Henri (9) and Dusty (cocker spaniel) Heidi (labrodoodle) Bobby, Ella and Joe the cats and Pinky and Perky (the pigs) and around 10 chickens! We speak English at home with French as our second language.
Tasks can be varied from general household chores, general chores around the property, gardening and assistance with our animals. Come and share our lovely home in the wild and stunning Ariege Pyrenees.

Help in the house

English and some French
Own attic double bedroom with private lounge and wc/hand basin , use of shared family bathroom or wet room.
Our house is fully gas centrally heated and has stove for added romantic warmth, so very warm even during the cool spells. Equally with big stone walls and shutters very cool during the summer.
We ask for 25 hours a week in return for three meals a day and your own room with facilities. We have two children under 11 and jobs so we are not always about. Use of Internet, UK land lines telephone calls and bikes to get around.
We would prefer a couple ideally aged between 22 and 40 happy to fit in with busy family. With two active boys the house is never quiet!
We only except non smokers. We eat a lot of what we grow and produce. We believe in a healthy varied diet including vegetarian, meat, fish, eggs and fruits. We can not accommodate strict VEGANS.
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.
