  • Description


    Dear workawayers,

    We are a dutch family, Ruben and Chrissy, with our children Floor (8) and Fedde (6). We took over a glamping resort in 2018. We quitted our jobs in Multi-nationals and went on an adventure in the south of France. It is a total life change, with ups and downs and we love it! Our kids grow up in nature and will learn to speak French fluently and pick up english along the way too!

    What we offer you is a great place to stay with a big room, comfortable bed, with a nice atmosphere! We absolutely love cooking, so you can enjoy our nice meals. We are always trying out new recipes for the new season and we would love to know your favorite dishes! We have a plot of 23ha with 2 lakes, forest and land for the donkey, the horse, our cute cat and the chickens. We are one hour away from the student city of Toulouse (which has an airport as well) and we are 15 min away of the historic city of Auch.

    We love to get to know the people that are coming to help us, how you are living, what your plans in life are and what you would like to learn. We can chat for hours over a nice fire and enjoy a nice beer or wine :-)

    We will meet as strangers and most probably say goodbye as friends!

    See you soon?

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Gers is a wonderful region with a very fine sense of gastronomy. The climate is great here, since we are between the mountains and the 2 oceans, it creates a micro climate that is very nice. Also the air is one of the cleanest in Europe, it has been called the green longue. Of course you can learn some French, english or dutch if you want. one of us also speaks german, spanish and a bit of swedish.
    What we have experienced sofar is that people are very friendly here and that there is a real sense of community.

You can join all the nice dishes that we serve and you can take drinks from the fridge, so you will feel as if you are in your own home.
