    Description

    Hi, we are Marc and Bev! We live in the heart of a small village situated in the country side but is only about 6km from the bustling town of Limoux. We are very easy going, extremely flexible and like to enjoy our life here. We have a small scruffy dog, we like to go biking (The ones with engines!!), go out for the odd picnic and we enjoy our food and the odd glass of wine!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area is rich in history and culture, close to the enigmatic Rennes-le-Château, and the magnificent Cathar fortresses.
    We live in a quiet French village with plenty of country lanes for strolls and picnics...or taking the dog for a run! As individuals we have traveled extensively during our time together, we love to meet new people and share stories and experiences and we are happy to pass on our experiences as well.
    We are great believers in giving and helping anyone in need and encouraging others to try new things and think and act for themselves in both a work environment and also in the family home.

    We have a few projects on the go.

    We have a small town house in the center of Limoux and a larger house in a small village which is about 10 minutes away from town. We are renovating both properties so would ideally like to be able to host helpers who have some experience in our quest but would happily welcome helpers who are adaptable and willing, but definitely need for them to be motivated. The main house is almost finished, the smaller house is at the stage where it needs work - filling, plaster boarding, sanding painting etc, so if you feel that is what you could do , give us a shout.

    We are open to suggestions on the help needed, we work well together and also with others, we appreciate extra help and input, but take nothing or no one for granted.

    We are at the moment in the process of updating a couple of bedrooms and a bathroom....but you will have a private room whatever and a shared bathroom! :-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The bustling town of Limoux with restaurants, shops and supermarkets etc is approximately 5km away by local bus or hitch a lift from the village or us. Limoux boasts the longest carnival in Europe (from Jan to March) and is only half an hour from Carcassonne and the impressive medieval City. There is a train and bus service throughout the Aude which costs 1€ each way!
