I am 60 years old with lots of energy. My two grow up children visit quite regularly - they both work in the UK. I am trying to improve the garden and indeed learn more about gardening. I turn my hand at anything but could do with some help. The house is large and set in a sizeable garden.
I am interested in cooking, photography, walking. Am the practical member of the family from a family of artists! Enjoy meeting people for all over the world and have travelled extensively. This time I am looking for help but would like to do a stint as a "workawayer" myself in the future. Am not a job snob - i.e. will work alongside anyone doing whatever task needs to be done!
Help in the house
I speak good French but am obviously not a French national - so anyone wanting to perfect their French may feel short changed!
Hi, I am originally from Ireland but now spend a lot of the year in a lovely house in SW France in the Tarn, My nearest towns are Gaillac and Albi and I am about an hour from Toulouse. Regular trains from Gaillac station which is 10 minutes away. I would like some help in the garden, general weeding and watering. Another pair of hands really. Some painting, general tidying around the place. I have quite a few guests (friends) coming and going through the summer and it would be nice to have someone who doesn't mind helping in the kitchen, emptying dishwasher, laying tables and an interest in cooking would be helpful but not necessary.
I do have a little permanent help in the garden but the summer months are always that much busier.
English and French
A double bedroom with shower ensuite. This can also be made into a twin room if necessary. Lovely gardens and lots of space. Full board offered.
The Tarn is a lovely area with good walking and cycling. I can lend bikes. The Gaillac area is known for it's vineyards and is very picturesque. Gaillac is about 3 miles from the house with market, restaurants, cinema - all the amenities of a small town. Regular trains and buses to Albi, Toulouse and the environs. Albi has a beautiful 13th century cathedral and the Toulouse Lautrec museum. It's a beautiful town. I have travelled extensively but am now really making a home in France and enjoying the lifestyle it offers.
