John and I have lived in this amazingly beautiful part of France for 13 years. We have 2 children and 6 grandchildren all living in the UK. We share our house with 3 dogs and 5 cats, outside we have 4 horses 1 pony, and 15 chickens. If you like to ride horses we have lovely countryside all round us, where we can ride for miles and miles. We both love all animals and I volunteer at the local dog rescue, where I walk dogs once a week. We are 4 kilometres away from the beautiful medieval town of Mirepoix, 30 minutes from Carcassonne and 1 hour from Toulouse.
Ideally, we would like two people, one to help John, gardening, painting the house and general maintenance work, and one to help me with the horses, cleaning the fields, maintaining the fences and work in the stables.
English, some French
Mobile home with two bedrooms, electricity, running water and all cooking facilities. All food will be supplied, but you would be expected to cook your own meals. We have Wi-Fi at our house, which can be used, but not in the mobile home.
This is a great area for hiking, cycling, mountain walks, canoeing/kayaking, white water rafting etc etc. This is Cathar country, so lots of old castles to explore, caves with underground rivers, in fact the whole region is steeped in history. There is a very popular, weekly, local market in Mirepoix .
