  • Description

    Description

    We are a mixed family of North American / French and are updating a house and garden in the beautiful town of Osséja, France in the Pyrenees. We are easygoing, humourous, kind-hearted and like meeting new people.

    We are able to host people as of August 18th 2018 and like to host people for a minimum of 3-4 weeks.

    We have a few business websites and can always use help with graphic design, writing blogs, improving content, making videos etc.

    Nous avons besoin d'aide en traduction de l'anglais au FRANÇAIS pour notre site web d'une personne francophone.

    We are also looking for help to build a pergola in the back garden, and why not build a fort, sandbox or other ideas for kids to play and have fun with.

    We also run an AngloFun club to help locals practice English so you can help with that as well. We want to learn Catalan and Spanish so local speakers are also welcome.

    We speak both English and French at home as we are truly bilingual. If you are looking for a 100% immersion in French then this is not the place for you as we speak both French and English all the time.

    We have a sporty child so soccer/rugby/basketball/ski/trampoline enthusiasts are appreciated!

    We have lots of visitors coming so we would love to also host a flexible person who enjoys creative and sports play with children.

    We welcome kind-hearted, hard working and responsible guests that like a warm family environment. We value family, friendships, education, multiculturalism, protecting the environment and natural beauty and hope to share that with you!

    We have a double guest room, a loft space and a very nice large private tent in the garden for summer use with comfortable air mattress and bedding (for more privacy should you wish).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Osséja is a beautiful town in the heart of the Pyrenees-Orientales. 4 km from Puigcerda, Spain. There are tons of activities: Hiking, walking, biking, rock climbing, hot water springs, skiing, golf... you name it. 300 days of sunshine per year. That being said, please know that this is a country setting, nightlife = local café 7 min walk from the house, local salle de cinéma or sitting around the firepit with a glass of wine watching the sunset and stars come out :-) There is a direct train to Barcelona for 13 euros and a direct train to Toulouse for about 23 euros.
