    Beschreibung

    We are a recently-retired couple looking to live quietly and sustainably in a peaceful part of France. We have a wide experience of travel and life. Predominantly vegetarian, not vegan, our interests/skills include teaching, skiing, walking, canoeing/kayaking , crafts, and gardening.

    We are British, and speak English as our first language, but we speak some other languages more or less fluently.

    Arbeit

    We are renovating a 500 year old French house in the foothills of the Pyrenees that has suffered more than 50 years of neglect.

    The sort of jobs that we would like help with include renovating and decorating the house, some gardening, and animal care. We are looking for fit and healthy individuals who already have some experience in house maintenance, like painting walls and woodwork.

    There may be a possibility of a longer stay on workaway basis and on minding the house and animals basis for a suitable candidate. Please write with any questions.

    We are not medically trained to deal with any health issues or help anyone who is taking any form of medication, suffering from depression or similar, take drugs or other stimulants, drink alcohol, or smoke cigarettes or otherwise.

    We need help 5 hrs per day, with breaks in between, 5 days per week. We have bicycles you can borrow from us, or/and take trips with us.

    We cannot accommodate people with children or pets as we have animals here.

    For those with nut allergies, also note, we eat tree nuts a lot.

    It is important that everyone has a suitable visa and health/accident insurance in place. We do not issue letters of invitation. Those that need to quarantine please do it before you arrive here.

    For health and safety reasons you must speak fluent English or French.

    We would welcome a native French speaker who has a very good command of french grammar so that we could improve our spoken french. In exchange we would help, if desired, with English grammar, vocabulary, and speaking.

    The nearest airport is Toulouse, or there is a wide choice of local, national and international buses and trains. We can meet you at any convenient pick up point by arrangement.

    On arrival we will ask to see your passport, take a number of it, and a name and telephone number of the next of kin.

    If this sounds like your kind of opportunity we would love to hear from you.
