  • Description


    We are a South African family living in a beautiful spot in Aurignac.
    We have 3 boys and a dog called Blue.
    We have turned the old pigstys into a restaurant with the best view the Pyrenees has to offer. We need help with further renovations, in the garden looking after kids and cooking for them.
    Ideally we would like someone who has someone French speaking and with a drivers license.

    We also have a large polytunnel and would love some one interested in growing vegetables for the house
