    Beschreibung

    Hi, we are Mike and Nancy, a Canadian couple, residing in France. About three years ago we moved with our two cats to Aulon, a small village in the Haute Garonne between Saint Gaudens and Aurignac. We found an unloved house, to make home and bare land to build gardens. The goal is to live as naturally as possible in a modern world with permaculture principles as our guide.

    We live simply and healthy, always trying to balance work and play. We are looking for friendly people to help Nancy in the gardens. I would love some extra hands to help with the renovations,

A good attitude and a willingness to learn are most welcome. Let us know what you think.

    On free days the villages of Aurignac and Saint Gaudens are only 15 minutes away, for cafes or shopping, there is also weekly markets. Public transit is available. Also, I am willing to shuttle friends occasionally to town. We have good cell coverage and WIFI.
    The Pyrenees are less than an hour away by car with a host of activities, including mountain trails for walking and cycling. There are also many places for canoeing and rafting around the villages between us and the Pyrenees.
    Spain is also less than an hours' drive away if you fancy practicing another language!
    If you wish to arrive by flight, Toulouse airport is the closest. There are train links from both Toulouse and Tarbes to Saint Gaudens or Boussens and a bus link from Saint Gaudens to Aulon. Or we can collect you from the Saint Gaudens or Boussens train station for your convenience
    Come and visit the Haute Garonne, with its breathtaking scenery, and some lovely sunshine all summer long. Ask Nancy to share her blog for a peek inside our lives.
    We look forward to meeting you, and sharing our lifestyle & home.
