  • Description


    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. I have a Yoga studio in Argeles Gazost (5 mins walk from the house) where I teach with a colleague. I have 3 children from 11-19 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. You will have a bedroom (for couple or 2 singles or alone) and shared bathrooms with family.

    We live in a really beautiful part of the Pyrenees and have a lovely house, 5 mins walk from our pretty local town and just beside a forest and river for beautiful walks and swims (if you like cold water!). We have a big garden too. We are an Irish/French mix and happy to welcome people from anywhere in the world! I am now a single Mum with 3 children from 11-19 years old, and 3 cats!! There are plenty of outdoor activities to do from the doorstep and bus transport up to ski resorts if you are here for the winter season.
