    Hi I'm Rob I have 3 great kids Harry Laurie & Megan
    There Ages are 8,6,3, and we have a dog named waltzy, pics attached.

    We moved to south west france from london 3 years ago
    to give our children a more outdoor lifestyle, and a second language
    Which they now have after 3 years
    We also brought a building which was a total wreck
    To renovate into a nice family home, i have about a
    6 months work left till its completed.
    Most of the Renovation work, iv done myself with help from my
    french neighbour serge, who is a farmer and quite a good
    plumber and tractor driver.

    Next door to this renovation project is grandpa's house
    and to the right of the renovation is a 2 bed apartment
    were my father and mother live and travel from as a base.
    The kids and I live in a 3 bedroom apartment untill the renovation is complete
    lots of properties, seems confusing but it all makes sense.
    We are looking for workaways to help out with the kids,
    a little cooking, some gardening, and pool maintenance in summer
    and a bit of building work with the renovation.
    but mostly my reasons to host, is for my children
    and I to meet new people who are interesting and fun and
    hopefully we can all share our experiences in the evening
    round the pool with dinner and a glass of wine.

    Come join us, do a little weeding, / childcare / cooking, be yourself and have a great time and come and laugh with all of us and the dog thats what travelling is all about.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The French Gers department is located in the heart of the Midi-Pyrenees region, south of the Lot-et-Garonne department of Aquitaine and to the north of Haute-Garonne and the Hautes-Pyrenees.

    The population density in the Gers is very low and the quality of life is very high - in part, the locals will tell you, due to the high standard and reputation of the local produce, including foie gras and local cheeses.

    Gers is an attractive department to explore, above all for the quiet countryside, the many small attractive villages - in particular to the north and east of the department - and of course the local cuisine (foie gras, confit de canard, cheeses, armagnac...).

    Toulouse 1 hour, mountains 1.20 in car
    auch capital of gers is 15 mins away
    2 cars always avalible.
