    I'm a single and happy grand father (61 yo) living in a hamlet on the Pyrenean mountains, facing south and very sunny !

    The place is a bit rustic, but this old stone house is just waiting to find its charm.

    There is a lot of work to do (gardening, wall cleaning, removing old wallpaper and old plasters, breaking walls, ...) and I've some ideas for interior and exterior design (Wooden veranda, small wooden shed, ...) but open to ideas.

    This small paradise is about 30 mins from the main city of the county, and less than an hour of a small ski domain.

    The place is beautiful, very quiet, with lot of wild life around and far enough from the city. There's lots of nice walks to do in the area, and breathtaking views.

    I propose hosting you (you will be fed, and housed on a dedicated bedroom) in exchange for a helping hand.

    As I like to discuss various topics, we can exchange and improve our languages skills together.

    Co-operation, exchange and procrastination are the keywords ;)

    The place I live is a beautiful one, in a natural park in Ariège. Lot of landscapes to see, lot of mountain walks to do, and lot of alternative people.

    We can discuss to improve our language skills, play guitar or bass, visit beautiful places and go to small concerts of world music.

    I can guide you through the beauty and strangeness of the Ariège and the people living alternatively here. Unfortunately, I have some pain on my feet (Morton neuroma), so I'll probably be unable to walk with you if you plan to hike on mountain.

    If you've a driver license, I can lend you my car (but not my motorbike ;) !) if you need. And you probably will because of the detached situation of my house.
