    Beschreibung

    We are Carole & Julien and we started a new project : restore and preserve a piece of land in the Pyrénées. 1 hectare with a meadow and woods near by the biggest national park of the Pyrénées.
    There is an old barn (our future home) who needs to be renovated from scratch.
    In addition, we have to create all the facilities needed (wood storage, outdoor toilets, natural stairs, cabins...etc.). Our will is to use natural materials, to respect environment and heritage.
    We have also a new vegetable garden and chickens. If you have green fingers, this is the place to be.
    The property didn't have any water or electricity system when we arrived and we are still working on it.

    About us : before this project, we travelled for almost 2 years through the Americas, in a van.
    Noisia, our dog, is always with us, in all our adventures. She is the definition of LOVE.
    We are old-timer lovers; VW and motorbikes are part of our life.

    You will have the best view on the Pic de Pibeste with the singing birds, a sweet atmosphere and maybe the smell of the French cheese (we are cheesy food addicts).

    If you don't mind to get your hands dirty, we hope to meet you soon... and don't forget "in between your goals, remember that there's a precious thing called life that has to be enjoyed".

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We would be happy to share our experience about building a van (we did 2) and how it is to travel and live this way. Also the old technics we want to use around this big project and the self-sufficiency.
    Carole is a french teacher for foreigners and she can provide you french lessons. Julien is passionate by mechanics and he would be happy to share some grease and oil.
    We are also food lovers and we would love to cook and eat together to experience each others food cultures.

    We are looking for 2 people that can work quite independent. The things we most likely need help with are:
    - Taking care of the vegetable garden (planting, watering, weeding, mowing, etc.)
    - Cleaning the chicken coop (once a week)
    - Cleaning the forest
    - Chopping wood and storage / Building another wood shed
    - Building the outdoor kitchen & toilets
    - Building stairs to make the paths easier in our forest
    - Improve our water system
    - Covering with wood the outside of ours water tanks

    We would also really appreciate if you can help with some general maintenance.
    The project is progressing everyday so new requests can come out.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    We make our first choice on people travelling with their van, of course our parking lot is big enough.
    If you want to sleep "à la belle étoile" we have 2 tents (2-person tent) with 2 mattresses. The spot is flat and in the shade BUT first please check all the details below.

    Because we don't have so much facilities, we need independent people (we don't have an outdoor kitchen yet).
    There is an outdoor shower (made by volunteers).
    We have composting toilet.

    About electricity, we have a solar panel (enough power to charge anything as phone, laptop, battery, toothbrush, epilator...etc.).

    We have water from the river and the potable water is at the village (1min drive), we fill jerrycans up when needs it.

    We will provide basic food as pasta, rice, vegetables from the garden (when it's the season), eggs, oil, flour, jam, basic condiments, tea, coffee... etc.
    Breakfast OR lunch will be offer and shared together (depending the schedule).

    About internet access : We both work from "home" on internet. We have connection (full 4G) thanks to a personal hotspot (with our phones). So you have to know that you couldn't have a connection 24/7 if our phones are too far from where you stay in the property.

    Was noch ...

    We are in the heart of Pyrénées. Hiking departure are at less than 500m, no car needed if you want to discover the surroundings.
    Once a week, you can also try the food from the region and order a little basket with cheese, fruits, jam, meat, bread, beer... and it's also just 500m away.
    There is plenty of stuff to discover with the famous city of Lourdes / Cauterets and so much more.
    Toulouse is also only 1h30 away (direct from Lourdes by train), we lived there for more than 10 years, we have many recommendations.
    Bayonne / Biarritz are also easy to access by train.

    We make our first choice on people travelling with their van, of course our parking lot is big enough. Because we don't have so much facilities, we need independent people (we don't have an outdoor kitchen yet). We don't have proper hookup. We don't allow big camper van, RV or trailer. The road is narrow, steep and can be muddy - you will be stuck !
