We are Francis and Linda. We live in this beautiful old house with our two dogs a Cocker Spaniel and a Weimaraner. The house was the former home and office of the local Notaire.
We like to think that we are welcoming and friendly, and offer a good place to stay. We have a nice garden room with en-suite facilities that you can stay in, and we provide all meals. We encourage our helpers to visit other local places, like Toulouse and Albi.
This year the garden, and external painting is our priority. As well as our garden we would like to help an elderly man who has land next to ours. His garden needs clearing of weeds brambles and fallen trees.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are English of origin, and would be happy to help you practice English. If you are French speaking we could benefit from your help with our learning. That said we are happy to accommodate any nationality, and we are happy to share our culture with you.
Grass cutting, strimming, pruning and cutting down trees. General DIY/handyman work.
Single or twin accommodation with en suite facilities. We have been asked in the past if people could bring their own tent and camp in the garden, or park a camper on the grounds. We are happy to consider this, but campers would need to be less than 2 metres high to be able to get in.
There is plenty to see and do in the area. Carmauax with its huge activity centre CAP DE CAVERT is around 10 Kiometes, Albi is around 20 Kilometres, and Toulouse is only a short train journey away.
