  • Description


    We are a french familly with 2 children now 5 (9 and 13 year's old) .Our 3 old daughters are studiing away.
    We live in a old farm close to Toulouse (15km) in the countryside. We have a big garden (approx. 6 acres).

    SPECIALLY, at the moment we are looking for help with gardening ( lown mower...)
    Normaly, In spring and summer (from April to November) we really need helpers motivated by gardening (like weeding, mowing...) and also some building and renovating. We also appreciate help in the kitchen, with cooking and cleaning commun areas, music lessons (guitare) ...
    Usually everything goes fine, but we like to give ourselves a week to decide whether this is working or not, on our side, as well as on our guests' side. Aslo, we would better like hosting workawayers older than 20 years old.

    We are very interested in discovering various cultures and will be very happy to share moments with you, and exchange about our respective cultures, languages, and gastronomies.
    We really appreciate it when our guests teach us a recipe from their country. Guests who do not speak french are also welcome (we speak english and a bit of spanish).
