  • Description


    Living 25mins north of Pau in a village called Simacourbe.
    A small cottage that I ran as a gite but owing to circumstances now living in it. You would have your own bedroom & en-suite.
    With great view of the Pyrenees from the garden if only the hedge was a little lower!
    I wouldn't ask you to do anything that I was not prepared to do myself but unfortunately I have shoulder problems & no longer able to do it on my own.
    I really could do with some help to get it back to how it looked 4 years ago.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If u have not done a lot of gardening before willing to show you how to use the tools etc & we would have a laugh doing all the jobs that need doing. I always feel if you make things fun time goes quicker & the jobs get done.
    If you are looking to learn more about the English way of life or learn more English you could end up speaking English with a Bristolian accent, not a bad thing!

    We are 25mins north of Pau & don't mind taking you in to see the sights.
    We are 7km from lembeye there is a bus that calls at Simacourbe able to take you to Pau if you want to be independant.
    Lembeye has a market on a Thursday, Vic end Biggore has one on a Saturday wouldn't be a problem for me to take you if you wanted to go.
