  • Beschreibung


    Magnificent ancient farmhouse in the South of France, based in the lovely hills that build the foreland to the Pyrénées. The house and its barn are surrounded by 2ha of land: a meadow, oak trees, orchards... Currently there are 2 adults (a business consultant and a building artisan), the dog Topo, a cat, 5 hens, 2 roosters and 5 sheep living here. This private place needs helping hands with gardening and general work around the house :)

    In case you wish to update your French, we can agree to speak only French at home with you :) There are many historic places around such as Aurignac and the Gorges de la Save, for those who are interested in history and archeology.

  • Unterkunft


    Two possibilities: you can either sleep in your own caravan or in a room in our farmhouse. This room is not renovated yet, but comfortable to live in. The house has modern electricity, heating, Internet connection and a modern bathroom.
    Meals are cooked with regional products, from the garden, the market or from biological farms around here. Omnivorous cuisine, which can easily be adapted to vegetarians.

    There is no public transport in the village. We can pick you up at the train station at 20km from here. Ideally, you have either a car or bicycle, but if not, we can help out from time to time with a ride (if you wish to visit a place in the surroundings). You can enjoy the place itself, take walks around (climbing in the Save gorges, visiting Aurignac or Saint Bertrand de Comminges, swimming in the Lac de la Gimone) and discover the Pyrenean piedmont that is rather calm and restful. During clear weather, you can enjoy a beautiful view on the Pyrenees chain.
