    We live in Department 65 , Haute Pyrenees. Our home is warm and friendly and you will share it with Derek and Gilly, two dogs and two cats.

    In the garden there are number of general tidying jobs such as clearing leaves and ditches, cutting trees, preparing vegetable plot and extending it. This year we need to update our internal paintwork so besides walls and ceilings there are items of furniture to renovate. I see this as being the focus of your stay.

    What else ...

    As we live in the country transport is advisable but not a necessity. We have bikes. We live about an hour from the mountains and two hours from the coast. There are many quaint villages and lovely places to see. However, if you want a relaxed stay after work, we have a swimming pool, peaceful garden and shaded veranda.
