We are an English/Irish couple Paul and Margaret in our early 60's. We live in a former watermill in a valley in the foothills of the Pyrenees, SW France - 1 hour due south of Toulouse, 2.5 hours from Andorra and 3.25 hours from the Mediterranean coast.
We are non-smokers.
As we live in the French countryside our travellers would see first hand the daily lives and needs of the local farming community.
We need someone who is practical, hard-working, flexible and enjoys working outside. Work would include pruning, cutting wood, weeding and maintaining banks of a nearby steam according to the time of year.
Volunteers are expected to be available 4 - 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
We offer comfortable accommodation for a single or a couple, wi fi,(bring your own laptop) good food, (Indian is Paul's speciality) good wine, good music and a swimming pool during summer months.
The surrounding area is excellent for hiking and mountain-biking etc. Own transport is not essential but would help if you wanted to tour around.
We both speak English and French, so if you wish to improve your language skills we are happy to converse in either.
