  • Description

    Description

    We are a Canadian Hungarian family of 2 adults and 2 boys (9 and 7), living in a renovated farmhouse on 2 hectares of rolling hills, 30 minutes from downtown Toulouse.

    Julia has started a permaculture-based farm with a variety of fruit trees, and edible plants. There are some chickens, ducks and sheep as well.

    We are on the route of Santiago de Compostella and run several gites on the property. We need your help in maintaining the gites, farming/gardening, and helping with the kids. Note: there is a possibility for taking French classes nearby, and we are happy to adjust to your schedule should you want to take them. We can also help to find local groups to pursue interests you may have outside the farm.

    Note: Julia prefers to work with women. We have a dog, a black Labrador, very friendly.

    We speak 3 languages at home and will be glad to work with you here or finding a course of study that will meet your needs. You can learn how to recognize and nurture different kinds of plants and trees. There are always landscaping and building renovation projects being planned and carried out. You will get a good feel for how a small hotel/gite operation is run. Finally, you can profit from the opportunities (music, sports, culture) L'Isle Jourdain and Toulouse offer.
