Hi, here is Maël, and Valentine (my 8 years old daughter),
I work by my own as a climbing and canyoning instructor. See my professionnal activities on escalade-canyon.com
We live in an ancien hotel of 300m2, that I started to renovate by my own and with the help of friends and helpers 3 years ago, whith respect of the ancien style, and with cheap and ecological meanings.
We now have 3 rooms completely finished, then the stay is comfortable, although in the midle of a big 'work in progress'
The hotel is on the main place of the nice village of Saurat, and we enjoy everyday its friendly athmosphere
Located in a really nice valley in the heart of 'Pyrénées ariégeoises' natural park, the place offers a lot possibilities for outdoor and mountain activities (hiking, climbing etc.....) that I like to share with friends and helpers.
My project is to live here for years, during the renovation, which is a project definitely to be shared with many different people (staying, working on the renovation, enjoying the lifestyle together...). So I'm looking for people that want to learn (or at least participate) about renovation, but no special skills are required...
My favorite moments are dedicated to music, climbing, visit friends and welcome people from other cultures...
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Sharing our easy going family all day life, and some visits at our friends.
There are a lots of outdoor and mountain activities to do, and people living here are open to share it.

Free climbing courses if you're beginer,
Play music! (I play gypsie jazz guitar) or sing...

living our place in the charming valley of Saurat.
Exchanging about renovating technics, convictions about ancien houses, respect of its story, choices of low environnent impact etc...
Exchanging about life, cultures, the world!
lookig for help to renovate an 360m2 ancien hotel. electric, air, and plummer networks, plasters, painting, wood work, gardening, etc...
My idea is to be with you during most part of working time, then we need someone more volunteer than experienced, although it would be welcome too.
français, English, and Maël has spanish basics
Maël: for the moment, I just finished two comfortable rooms where to sleep in the ancien hotel project, and a tentatively bathroom/kitchen. so I can welcome 1 person or a couple, and I plan to soon be able to welcome more people (rooms in preparation...) in better and better conditions. During summertime, we can use more rooms that are clean but not equiped yet...
lots of possibilities to enjoy outings, mountain, or visit sight seeing places
I'll lent you climbing or canyoning gear if you go by your own
