  • Description



    I am a retired teacher from Oxford, UK. and I have recently moved to the Pyrenees region near the beautiful mountains in the South West of France and about two hours from Spain.

    I am converting an old stone house into a family home which I am hoping will be completed by the winter.However bathrooms and the kitchen are yet to be installed!

    I have been a teacher for over 30 years and have a very strong command of the English language, i am learning French whilst I a living in France and would welcome an exchange in conversation as well as help around the property.

    If you can help with this that would be brilliant!

    the project is a house renovation!

    I am living on site trying to slowly renovate an old barn whilst keeping the garden fresh and healthy!

    I need any help you can offer, whether it is trade skills, gardening or simply cleaning and keeping good company!

    In exchange i can offer a place to stay, occasional meals, cooking facilities and English lessons. I was a teacher in Oxford, UK for 30 years and therefore have a strong command of the English Language.

    The location is on the Camino walk to Lourdes, I walked to Santiago last year and can assist you with topical tips and information if you are walking that way

    I am in the middle of nowhere, public transport does not exist up here so volunteers will be reliant on me to take them to the nearest town( Maubourguet or Vic-en-Bigorre) for further transportation.
