    Description

    I built my log-house from a Scandinavian kit in 2005, double garage/workshop in 2006 and the 10x5 pool in 2011. I had some help initialy to get the walls up, and the roof on, but everything else I've done on my own. The object being to rent it as a summer holiday home while I escape to the Pyrenees, in my camper, to cycle, fish and most recently, paraglide. Considering the economic climate it's working very well, I have 6 weeks booked from mid-July.

    We wold like some help getting the house ready for this seasons letting and we also require help with computer/smart phone.

    I'm a good cook, good fun and considerate, and can provide references to back-up these extravagent claims from friends who've had workaways. I'm a very keen cyclist, guitarist, lover of music and now a paraglider.
    I am mother tongue english but my girlfriend is french and doesn't speak english so if you want to improve your french conversation my house may suit you.
    The available accomodation is either a bedroom with 2 singles or a double and own bathroom.

    House about 13kms from Nerac town so transport advised although I can probably provide bicycles. Happy to show the country-side by bike. You're free to use the pool etc in the afternoon. It's 1.1 m deep, so good fun to play in!
