  • Description

    Description

    We are Michael - English, Ruve - NZer, retirees enjoying the French style of life. We are looking preferably for couples who enjoy lots of gardening as we have a large garden to maintain. Help is also needed with general house maintenance such as sanding/varnishing shutters, cleaning and perhaps some cooking.

    We are situated in the Tarn & Garonne (Dept 82), approx. 100 kms north of Toulouse, 8 kms north of Caylus and 21 kms south of Villefranche de Rouergue. Parisot is a picturesque medieval hilltop village of 700 people. There are 2 bakers, a village shop, post office, library, bar, 2 restaurants, doctors, chiropodist and a pharmacy. There is a small market every Friday morning.

    Life is quiet and therefore Parisot will only appeal to couples with a car or those who enjoy a rural life. There is no public transport.

    Accommodation

    A self contained one bedroom flat in the grounds of the chateau - all mod cons - towels, bed linen, hob, oven, washing machine etc. We either shop together for food or give you an allowance so that you can self-cater although we have occasional meals with you for cultural exchange. There is a double bed only so the flat suits a COUPLE or one single person.
