  • Descripción


    We are Tif and Niko, around 30+ years old living in the countryside at Le Mas d'Azil.
    We are trying to build a great environment to grow our daughter and leave peacefully. That's why we love taking care of our home and garden. We have goats, chickens and vegetables garden.

    We have travelled through Europe, Asia and Australia for 2 years with an old 4WD. During our long journey we have done some workaway stays (poland, thailand, australia) and loved these experiences. We know how precious it is to discover a country from the inhabitant, we'll make sure to welcome you as best as we can and hope you'll enjoy your stay with us.

    More about us :
    Niko is an engineer, always looking for new experiences, he loves thinking and working hours on stuff and stuff.
    Tif is a psychomotor therapist (working 3 days a week). She likes to work hard or create pretty things but she needs to take her time.
    We are open minded people, pretty simple and very adaptative. We are rather sporty (cycling, running, hiking, climbing) and we love outdoor activities that you'll be welcome to share with us if you want. We are always up for board or card games !

  • Ayuda


    We always have something to do outside : trim the hedges, take care of vegetable garden, mow the lawn, cut and collect branches, clean animals houses...
    Otherwise, our current project is to install climbing routes on our cliff and make the very steep terrain which leads to it more accessible.
    It's mostly physical works but we are not looking for a Hulk, everyone can do it at their own pace.
    We could do most of the things on our own but it's more pleasant and dynamic to help with someone else. However, you are free to manage your schedule independently.

    We expect half day working, 5 days a week.
    About meals, we'll provide the dinner and let you manage the rest of your food.
    You are also free to collect fresh eggs in the chiken coop anytime.

  • Alojamiento


    We'll host you on our house's ground floor, which is for yourself only.
    There is :
    - bedroom with double bed and cupboard
    - kitchen with small fridge, gaz cooker, microwave and cooking tools + table and chairs
    - bathroom
    - small living room (with tv)
    All the house is no smocking area, we provide wifi internet (the connection can be slow sometimes).
    We simply expect that you respect some basic rules of living together (silence at night and during our daughter's nap, keep the accommodation clean, do not overconsume water and electricity).

    Algo más...

    Le Mas d'Azil is a pretty town (10 minutes by bike), pretty touristic in summer. All along the year you can visit its famous natural cave and enjoy a local market every Wednesday morning.
    We live near a river (1 minute by bike) where you can swim or chill out ! There is also trails, pretty cities (Carla Bayle, St Lizier, Foix) and lakes (Mondely, Filheit, Carla) to explore around.
    Depending on the season you can collect apples in the orchard next door, visit an Angora goat farm or museums (Xploria, Affabuloscope museum), see artisan workshops (glass blower, potter...), go to the astronomical observatory or even bungee jump over the cave !
    We live in the countryside and even if a few buses run it is way more convenient to hitchhike (commonly practiced here). We can lend you a bike too !
    At Le Mas d'Azil there is a few small shops (pharmacy, groceries, bakery...) and we often go to bigger towns (Saint Girons or Foix 20 to 30 minutes by car), we can drive you there too.

    You can park a big vehicle in front of the house but not in the garden as the ground is too steep.

    We are OK with pets but make sure they are friendly with goats and hens. You also have to know our home is near a road without proper fence.
