    Description

    Hello, we have a corps de ferme as a holiday home in the farming area of the beautiful Aveyron. We spend 6 weeks or so in the area in summer eating drinking and occasional painting. We'd welcome help to put our "pasture" into some sort of shape, sort of like a garden ! It's generally jut my wife and I , but sometimes friends and/or family are with us too.

    Accommodation

    Bedrooms and bathrooms are finished , but the house isn't completely renovated, we're very relaxed about it, only been doing it for 14 years. Breakfast is taken at home but we always go out for lunch and meal of the day and we would expect to take you (and pay). Evening meals are haphazard but enjoyable.We're a bit remote but will happily drive you to the local station on the line for Toulouse, Albi or Rodez
