Hello, we are Georgina & Stephan, an international couple that lives the summers in the foothills of the beautiful Pyrenees, 100 km southwest of Toulouse. We are of Mexican and German origin but have lived and worked for many years in the USA and England. Georgina is a multidisciplinar entrepreneur, producing cultural and educational events, manufacturing a line of gourmet spices, coaching clients (leadership, productivity, culture and holistic life incorporating Pilates, music & movement). Stephan worked over 25 years in Investment banking and his new interests are nutrition, history and renovations. We enjoy traveling, meeting people and our companion german-labradors.

Help in the house
We offer English, Spanish and German language practice to anyone staying with us.
Georgina also teaches Pilates and is the most wonderful and creative cook who incorporates flavors and ingredients from around the world.
This is a beautiful area in the Pyrenees where you can get away from it all, relax, take in good mountain air.
It's great for hikers as there are streams, forests and wildlife to discover.
Lourdes, the major Catholic pilgrimage site, is less than 1 hour away.
Also, the Camino de Santiago, which famously ends in Santiago de Compostella, passes through the area.
Currently we are in specific need of general building skills, masonry and roofing. But also the usual: maintenance work like painting and, as always, gardening.
English, Spanish, German, French
You will have your own room in a separate guest house with full kitchen, bath and large living room.
As the location is quite rural a means of transport might be helpful. But if you are lacking transport, we are more than happy to pick you up from the train station in town or from the airports in Lourdes or Toulouse.
We also have bicycles for your convenience.
There is also a sauna which can be used.
