Hi, we are a family of artists, writers and musicians, living in a Villa surrounded by a big garden with a pool just outside Limoux; a small town known for its sparkling wine and Carnaval.
Mark teaches (piano) in Carcassonne and I am working on various book projects as well as running a small bed and breakfast at the house.
Our nineteen year old son is doing a fine arts course in Bordeaux but visits often.
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We are a very relaxed family who are involved in several creative processes - writing, music, painting, as well as enjoying cooking, gardening and being outdoors. We could help with English or French language, music and writing practice, exchange ideas on the arts, suggest places to explore in the region, and be happy to spend time with our guests discussing everything from gardening to big world topics.
Currently, we need help with house and garden repairs, and cutting back stuff/clearing in the garden. Looking for someone who has some experience in basic carpentry/painting etc, and/or is happy to do garden work.
separate accommodation in my art studio/ chalet, or if we have no B and B guests, a room in the house.
Great area for walking, cycling, swimming, easy access to other towns and cities by train or bus.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
oo, about four/five? but not necessarily in one chunk. (max 25 hours)
