    Description

    ( Looking for help in November)

    We are Simon (50 year old ex-timber framer with a small recycling business) and Frauke, (54 year old hobby musician) with two grown up daughters, who are home from time to time, living in the beautiful Gers countryside (between Bordeaux and Toulouse). We live in a big stone house, with a large organic garden and lots of fruit trees.

    We are currently looking for someone from the second week of november to help Simon sorting out his workshop, and turning it into a second hand furniture selling space.

    We have a very cute little dog, two big foster dogs, and cats. We have a ping pong table, a music room and a slackline, all up for being used! We also have bikes if you want to go exploring the countryside.
    We eat delicious vegan food.
    We both enjoy playing music (drums & guitar) and would welcome anyone into having a jam!

    We are always happy to meet new people, no experience necessary but smiles & enthusiasm very welcome. We enjoy chatting, tea drinking and philosophising about life the universe and everything.

    Looking forward to meeting you!


    P.S we speak mainly English at home and are not really suitable for anyone wishing to brush up on their French ...
