  • Description

    Description

    We are a french – german – speaking house-hold living about 300 meters from the Arros River with our dog Filou and our cat Findus. This is extreme rural France. If you like a quiet life with practically no neighbors, this is for you.

    The small town of Marciac is 7 kilometers away. It has two or three cafes, three or four restaurants, a cinema and a few small shops. There is no public transportation. We are quite happy to lend you our bicycles or give you a lift into town.

    Help

    We are looking for cheerful, energetic help from people who enjoy working outdoors. We prefer a minimum stay of at least two weeks. There is plenty to do. The work involves digging and other heavy work, a bit of housework on rainy days. The rest would involve general maintenance and odd jobs, cutting and stucking wood, sanding….
    We also have a small house in Bagnère de Bigorre.

    What else ...

    To come here you would travel to Tarbes where we would meet you at Tarbes train station or Tarbes/Lourdes airport.

    But people with their own transport would be particularly well suited as we are out in the country and we can not always promise to take you on exploration trips.
