  • Description

    Description

    We are an active and sociable retired couple (engineer and a primary school teacher) who have been ex- pats for years, before choosing to swap the desert for the countryside and settle down in this charming area. We share our renovated ' fermette' with our adorable but energetic Dalmation dog and a stream of visitors.
    Our personal hobbies include golf, out walking with our dog, travelling, entertaining and wining and dining with friends as we explore the delights of French food and wines.

    We will be needing help with the usual summer jobs in the garden-weeding, pruning, lawn mowing and strimming. Then as the season changes there will be the Autumn garden jobs to be done.
    I am also thinking about developing my vegetable garden to a raised bed area.
    There could be some painting jobs to refresh some of the walls in our home if the weather is inclement for gardening work.

    In return for a helping hand I promise to keep you very well fed over sociable meal times!

    As we are in a rural location, transport is needed so we are willing to lend bikes! If you have your own transport then Pyrenee Mountains and Spain can be reached in under an hour, Toulouse is just over an hour and the Mediterranean or Atlantic reached in a few hours. Many active sports are available in the region.
    We would be happy to pick you up from the nearby train station at Lannemezan.
