    Share experiences and ideas with other travellers. We live in a medium sized house with a fair garden that both need some tender loving care and a slap of paint or a extra bit of weeding (don't get the two mixed up!)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Castres is a middle-sized city with a good social life but none of the busy-ness of big cities. Our family enjoys playing board games (at least when we can drag them away from their phones!) We are quite well travelled and enjoy sharing our experiences with other travellers in English, French and a splattering of some other European languages.

    We are a family of five who live in Castres near to Toulouse in the south of France. We have a house and garden that need some care and our children (Eliott 15, Mila 18 and Zelie 21 who's away at University) who love speaking English. Valerie is an English teacher and David (myself) is an educateur specialise... I look forward to explaining what that is!
