I am Irish, living in France for the past 25 years, always in the Pyrenees where I work as a mountain leader and Yoga Teacher. We have a Yoga studio at the house where I teach with other colleagues. I have 3 children from 8-16 years old and we speak a mix of French and English (also a little Spanish). I hope and think we will provide an enjoyable space for anyone wishing to come and help out a little.
We live in a really beautiful part of the Pyrenees and have a lovely gite in the garden which is mostly free in November and December so work awayers could have a little place for themselves and yet be 'in our garden' and close to family. We are an Irish/French mix and happy to welcome people from anywhere in the world! We have 3 children from 8- 16 years old, cats and chickens, plenty of space and plenty of outdoor activities to do from the doorstep.
I am looking for help with a couple of small projects in the house, a few walls to paint (possibly plaster one a little first to make 'smoother'), repainting a floor, moving some furniture and doing 2 simple walls with wood boarding...this kind of thing!
2 bedroom gite totally independant and very charming. Very comfortable accomodation for 2-4 people with everything you could need (except not great internet connection, this is fine from the main house (which can be used) but slow in the gite.
Plenty of outddor activities especially walking, cycling etc. We are on the doorstep of the beautiful Pyrenean National Park and fabulous mountain walking and views. We are in a village 5 mins by car from Argeles Gazost; n ot very easy to get around without a vehicule but hitching can work; and we can also help out with some transport and there are buses, but not very frequent!
