  • Description


    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.

  • Accommodation


    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.
