I am a retired teacher from Oxford, UK. and I have recently moved to the Pyrenees region near the beautiful mountains in the South West of France and about two hours from Spain.
I am converting an old stone house into a family home which I am hoping will be completed by the winter.However bathrooms and the kitchen are yet to be installed!
I have been a teacher for over 30 years and have a very strong command of the English language, i am learning French whilst I a living in France and would welcome an exchange in conversation as well as help around the property.
If you can help with this that would be brilliant!
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
the project is a house renovation!
I am living on site trying to slowly renovate an old barn whilst keeping the garden fresh and healthy!
I need any help you can offer, whether it is trade skills, gardening or simply cleaning and keeping good company!
In exchange i can offer a place to stay, occasional meals, cooking facilities and English lessons. I was a teacher in Oxford, UK for 30 years and therefore have a strong command of the English Language.
The location is on the Camino walk to Lourdes, I walked to Santiago last year and can assist you with topical tips and information if you are walking that way
i have a wide range of tasks i need help with, mostly i would like workways who can think on their feet. However, a small list of tasks I need help with;
3 bedrooms are available, i will provide cooking facilities and cook a group meal from time to time!
I am in the middle of nowhere, public transport does not exist up here so volunteers will be reliant on me to take them to the nearest town( Maubourguet or Vic-en-Bigorre) for further transportation.
