    Robin& Lynne ( 70) and grandson Tommie (8) moved to this lovely area 5 years ago. We have 2 gorgeous gites (fully booked for the summer) change over day is Saturday, when it is all hands on deck to welcome international families. We have 3 1/2 acres of land to keep looking good, weed free and tidy plus daily upkeep to the piscine , poolhouse/furniture and the gites. Can you help with this? Tommie is a great little character, full of beans, very sociable and up for any game you will play ! He will be at school locally til the beginning of July then holidays til the beginning of September. You will have your own fully equipped house to live in, which has all mod cons, right next door to us , in a quiet country lane, which is still only a 20 min walk to 2 delightful buzzing medieval towns. You can use our bikes and explore further afield. Local buses are cheap and go to Carcassonne and Toulouse.
