    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a metal worker and a tree surgeon, and i made for several years wild herbs based liquors, wines and soft drinks, so while you're there, you could learn metal working in my workshop, tree surgery/climbing, wild herbs gathering (depending on season) botanic basis, French slang :)...

    Hi, I really can use hands to keep up the property (splitting and store wood, repair fences...etc) clear out spaces to create cultivable areas, but also create a new bathroom, convert a little dependence into a workshop/laboratory...i also need to build a concrete water tank to secure the water supply, so there's a chance i will organise a "chantier collectif" to do it, with friends and neighbours...and you of course !

    We can share the space in the house, but you can also have your own space in a caravan, or camp by the pound (there are loads of frogs so mosquitoes are not a problem) You can also be in an apartment upstairs my workshop 2 km away...we can share meals, my son is vegetarian so I'm used to cook without meat and i'm very flexible about different regimes. But, yes there is a but, i'm really far from being a "cordon bleu" !!

  • What else ...

    there are some beautiful places here, lots of walks to do, I have got a canoe you can use on the lake nearby...there are also yoga class in the village, music with friends, sometimes. There are places to visit too, Albi 30 minutes, Lautrec, Toulouse 1h30...well, festivals and concerts have been cancelled this year but there are still cafes and local markets to go to.

    small camper vans can access to the site, full coachbuilt bodies could be a problem...The best is to tell me the make and body type or send me a photo of your van and i can tell you if it's ok...
