Hello, we are an English family who have recently moved to a pretty town in the Gers region of South West France. We have bought a beautiful large Manor house in the countryside with a pool and outbuildings. The work is mainly ongoing upkeep - there's is lots to do both in the garden and the house. We work hard but also enjoy good food, music, exploring the local area and entertaining. We have a calm and friendly dog. We look forward to welcoming you here!
Help in the house
Mostly unskilled help but gardening experience would be helpful (chopping down bushes and trees, mowing etc). And we need to do a lot of cleaning!
English, some French
There is a large bedroom with private bathroom at the top of the Manor House.
Mauvezin is just under an hour from Toulouse by car. The towns of Montauban, Agen and Auch are well worth a visit. The house itself is surrounded by fields in a rural location. The town of Gimont (10 minutes) has a rail link to Toulouse. The area is wonderful for walking and cycling and you are welcome to borrow our bikes and use the pool. There is car rental in Mauvezin. Your free time is completely your own and we are fairly flexible as to when you help out.
