  • Description

    Description

    We ( Alex and Margot) are a Dutch couple in our fifties. We have been living on our mini farm since 20 years. We live partly self sufficient with our two cows, pigs, chickens and vegetable garden. We have a holiday home in which you will stay.
    Together Alex and I speak 6 languages ( Dutch, french, English, German, Swedish/Spanish) and we are open to learn a new one. We are well integrated in our community and although Alex and i speak Dutch together you will be able to hear french often.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a rural area in the south of France. Cooking is an importing aspect that we adopted from the french. Next to learning things on the farm we will take you to different social events with french and english speaking friends. If you don't have a car you can use our bike. We can also bring or take you with our car.

    Help

    On our self-sufficient farm we need often help in spring and autumn. Work would be outside, vegetable garden, field work (fencing clearing), farmwork ( cows,pigs,chickens). The work will not be too physical and can be adapted to your experience.

    What else ...

    For your time off you will have to like the countryside. We have a dam and small waterfall. Work will be adapted to things to do in the area. For example, on a market day you can come with us interact with our friends and local people. You can also easily travel to Toulouse by train and have a city visit. Or you can go the other way and see the mountains or, for example, Lourdes.
