  • Description


    Hi, we are Marc and Bev! We live on the outskirts of a small and very quiet village situated in the middle of vineyards and are about 6km from Limoux. We are very easy going, extremely flexible and like to enjoy our life here. We have a small scruffy dog and 4 cats, we like to go biking, go out for the odd picnic and we enjoy our food and the odd glass of wine!

    We have a few projects on the go (small and large).

    We have a large house with a large plot of land that needs clearing, so plenty of wood cutting and stacking for the winter and tons of weeds and brambles to remove.

    In addition we have a small town house which needs almost a full renovation!! It needs a new bathroom, a new kitchen and a serious revamping so we very much need people to help us to get it into shape.

    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.

    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.

    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!
