I have a house in a small village in the Ariege in Southern France. I am Englishman living 45 minutes south of Toulouse and 1 hour north of the mountains. There is a lake near the house and woods and rivers all around. The Ariege is a very beautiful natural place to spend time. I am easy to get along with. you will get your own room and use of a bike and I will introduce you to the life around the area - which depending on the time of year can be buzzing or sleepy. If you like skiing then we are only an hour away from the slopes. I want to turn the house into a writers retreat - but it's still a way off yet. I'm looking for one or two volunteers to spend a couple of hours a day helping in the garden, some interior DIY stuff and painting. The rest of your time is your own. It will be generally chilled - shared cooking etc. Please get in contact to find out more.
If you like climbing even better.
Help with Computers / internet
You get to spend some time in the south of france. I am near Toulouse and the Pyrenees. If you like walking or canoeing or just quiet nature then this is the place. There are lots of musicians around the area. A quiet place with a restaurant/bar. God for reflection and writing and thinking.
I need some help to speed up the garden work. It will be building, gardening work generally with some decorating. I will expect about 4 or 5 hours help per day. Not too much.
You will have your own room in the house.
This is new to me - it would be useful for you to add some experiences that you have had - and skills you possess. Look forward to hearing from you.
