  • Description


    Hi, we are Marc and Bev! We live in the heart of a small village situated in the country side but is only about 6km from the bustling town of Limoux. We are very easy going, extremely flexible and like to enjoy our life here. We have a small scruffy dog and 2 cats, we like to go biking, go out for the odd picnic and we enjoy our food and the odd glass of wine!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area is rich in history and culture, close to the enigmatic Rennes-le-Château, and the magnificent Cathar fortresses. As individuals we have traveled extensively during our time as Scuba instructors, and we love to share our experiences. We believe in encouraging others to think and act for themselves in both a work environment and family home.

  • Help


    We have a few projects on the go.

    We have a small town house in the center of Limoux and a larger house in a small village about 10 minutes away from town. Both properties are in need of renovation so we need people who have experience in construction and/or people who are are adaptable and willing but we definitely need our helpers to be motivated.

    We are open to suggestions on the help needed, we work well together and also with others, we appreciate extra help and input and take nothing for granted.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The bustling town of Limoux with restaurants, shops and supermarkets etc is approximately 5km away by local bus or hitch a lift from the village or us. Limoux boasts the longest carnival in Europe (from Jan to March) and is only half an hour from Carcassonne and the impressive medieval City. There is a train and bus service throughout the Aude which costs 1€ each way!
