    Description

    Hi, we live in a castle beetween Carcassonne and Toulouse. We have been the owners of this property for Nike years. we have two gites, two gypsy caravans and three guest rooms in the castle.
    Our property is an antique village with an old story. (XII century) people come to live in peace with nature ( forest, park, fields) deer, squirrels and birds...
    I have been a language teacher and a writer before (for children). I am managing the chateau with my mother in law, who was director of a public library. She is the best Tiramisu maker in the world!
    We cant receive pets, I'm sorry...
    We need builders, woodcutter, web designers, help with computers and gardeners.
