  • Description

    Description

    We are a little family of 3, living in the French Pyrenees for part of the year in a beautiful old farmhouse that we have renovated into apartments. We also have a trek company offering also climbing and yoga. We particularly need help in June and September but there is plenty to help with all year round. It could be renovation, marketing, property management (including changeovers), gardening and assistance with treks. We have a pool in the garden and bikes for helpers to use. We are happy to show you around and you can try some of the many activities in this area during your stay. Generally we offer board and lodging for 20 hrs a week work but are pretty flexible. We particularly now need help with our treks in September for camp support, any recce help and food preparation as well as hospitality for our guests. There may also be some help needed with the odd baby sitting of Amelie our 3 year old. We also need some help with our apartments during this busy time so do get in touch!
