Help around the house
Very peaceful area. We live in the main house and there is two twin old little houses. Le landscape is hilly and the property is situated in the piemonte of the Pyrénées mountains near Pau (15mn by car). The Pyrénées mountains are 30mn from the house, the ocean is 1h15 minutes (Biarritz, St Jean de Luz or Hossegor a famous surf spots).
We can help workaway people to discover the countries and practice hiking in the mountains, go to ocean side, etc...
