  • Description


    On the heights of Ramonville (alt.200m) very close from Toulouse, the house is shared between me and my children.
    I(Mathilde) am an engineer and I'm working full time. I like gardening, sewing, cooking, board games.
    I have 2 children:
    Salome (daughter) is 16 years old, she loves dance and her friends in high school.
    Swann (boy) is 14 years old, he likes video games and sports.

    Everybody loves sharing hobbies and stories around a good meal often vegetarian (not always) I love cooking

    We live here for 9 years and carry out the remaining work as and when. Unfortunately, our busy schedules do not allow us to work on it as much as we would like.
    The main remaining tasks are:
    - realisation of an outdoor wood staircase
    - Realisation of dry toilets
    - re-do some paintings

    Also, I help my boyfriend with an old stable in Pyrénées mountains, we often go there during weekends and holidays.

    We speak French and English.

    We will be delighted to welcome 1 or 2 persons (couple or family) of any nationality to help.
    We need someone autonomous as we are working all day.
