We are Simon ( 48 year old ex-timber framer with a small recycling business) and Frauke, (53 year old hobby musician and film maker) with 2 grown up daughters, who are home from time to time, living in the beautiful Gers countryside (between Bordeaux and Toulouse), with large organic garden and orchard. We have cats, a very cute dog & some geese with occasional aggression management issues. We have a small swimming pool & a ping pong table.
We're looking for 4 hours help a day in the house, garden, & with the odd building project.
We are vegan but don't mind if you want to supplement your meals with cheese or meat.
We both enjoy playing music ( drums & guitar) & would welcome anyone into having a jam.
We are always happy to meet new people, no experience necessary but smiles & enthusiasm very welcome.
Accommodation is a room in the house. We have a large wood and metal workshop, bicycles that can be borrowed plus internet access available.
Looking forward to meeting you!
P.S we speak mainly English at home and are not really suitable for anyone wishing to brush up on their French ...
