I live within a small community of French & some English , most of us are interested in producing our own food and living simply. I have lived in France since 1999 and love the peace and beauty of the area.
Help with Eco project
I need help with taming an overgrown orchard , lots of pruning and large vegetable garden that needs planting up in the spring and creating more raised beds. general garden maintenance , mowing , strimming etc. I am considering converting pig house into an off grid pioneer style cabin if I get people with the right skills. Some help with woodstaining the terrace and small painting jobs.
A bright comfortable , relaxed & friendly household , I have a 3 bedroom detached house with a large garden on the fringe of the tiny village of Cassagnabere-Tournas , postcode 31420. Double bed in bedroom , shared bathroom with bath & shower , kitchen , lounge with wood burning stove and large outdoor terrace . I have 2 dogs and an elderly cat . I mainly cook vegetarian food with occasional fish . I am happy for people to smoke on the covered terrace or gardens. plenty of parking.
My home is situated in the foothills of the Pyrennees , breathtaking mountain views from the house and endless rolling hills and valleys , there is very little tourism here , but plenty of local interest , the village has a live music bar , shop / restaurant , post office within walking distance. The larger village of Aurignac is 5km , with lots of small shops and restaurants , a museum of prehistory and a lovely outdoor swimming pool open between July-September.
Ski stations are 1hr 30 away , great walking , hiking , cycling & riding to enjoy locally.
