We are a Spanish family installed in French Pyrenees, we bought this farm in 2017. We live 2 adults with our 6 years old son, a dog, a cat, three chickens and five ducks.
I am a puppeteer but at this moment I renovate the house and work in the garden. I have training as a carpenter, and experience in ecoconstruction, I spent some years volunteering in a permaculture project.
Babysitting / child care
Help with Eco project
The place is ideal for someone who likes Pyrenees mountains and the great natural spaces. Leaving from home there are some very interesting treekings. Even a climbing wall 10 minutes walking, is also a classic place for bicycle lovers.
We are looking for a person who can help us with the carpentry and renovations and the garden, someone who is well surrounded by nature and eager to learn, we value experience and long stay.
The different projects for the near future are: Make apple juice, the construction of an outdoor dry toilet, reinforce some points of the fence, plant fruit trees for the good functioning of phytodepuration, cut some trees. But the most urgent are the interior works, such as finishing the wooden walls, to continue the clay plasters. And the exterior works will be done as time permits, and we have the necessary materials and tools.
You can install yourself in a caravan that we have behind our house so that you are more independent, dry toilet and kitchen are inside the house
Travelers with motorhomes or roulottes are welcome, also donkeys and horses will find their place.
