    Good Host
  • Description


    We are Bruce, Polly Jasmine (12) and Thom (9) English family, living in France for 15 years now.
    1 hour from Toulouse.
    We live in the beauty of the Pyrenees, with lots of outdoor activities on the doorstep.
    We are constantly renovating our 200-year-old house and outbuildings. We are working on being as self-sufficient as possible with our own chickens, ducks and a sizeable veggie patch.
    We are going as zero waste as possible, plastic-free and eco-friendly.
    We live a busy family life with great friends, and locally there is a lot going on.
    We run a separate business here and that's why we don't have enough hours in the day to do all these lovely gardening jobs.
    Would be great to have extra hands this June to keep everything in order in the veggie patch, and complete our pond.
    We are looking for active people/person preferably with experience in building, over 25 years old who will fit in with family life, and enjoy the mountains and local sights in their free time.
    This is our piece of heaven, and we would like to share it with you!
    We have 2 dogs and cats on the property.
