Hi we are a Brittish couple who 5 years ago bought a lovely Maison de Maitre in the fantastic Gers department in Gascony (Midi Pyrenees). We are currently looking for enthusiastic lively people who would enjoy the experience of this wonderful part of France whilst helping us finish the renovations of our beautiful home which we shall be marketing as a luxury holiday rental in 2020. We have carried out most of the renovation and are now working on decorating the upper floors and fitting 3 further bathrooms. We are looking for people who are energetic, fun people who would like to get stuck into various outstanding projects. Decorating, hedging, gardening. plumbing and woodwork. Helping clearing hedges around the boundary of the fields and fencing. We can offer a super double room with ensuite and are hoping to provide further bedroom and washing facilities so we can have more workaways staying at the same time. You will need transport if you want to get out and about. We have 2 road bikes that are available and mountain bikes to explore the local area and on shopping days I am very happy to take you along for anything you might need. We have horses, dogs, chickens that need mucking out and feeding so plenty to do. We want people who enjoy the company of others and most of all enjoy good food and drink and conversation. We hope that you would be willing to share cooking duties or at least help.
