  • 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 is starting a permaculture-based farm with a large variety of fruit, edible wild plants and some animals.

    We are on the route of Santiago de Compostella and run several gites on the property. We need your help to maintain the gites, farming/gardening, renovations on the property 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.
