  • Description

    Description

    We have recently sold our house and moved to a smaller house 5 kms from a village with a good market, cinema and mini golf. We need help getting the garden under control, painting of shutters and generally any small jobs that need doing. We are in the process of getting a swimming pool. YWe provide good food, wine and beer.
    Your own room with en-suite and occasionally lovely views of the Pyrenees. We have four friendly dogs who would appreciate being walked.

    We really only accept people over 21. Unfortunately we cannot cater for vegans.
