  • Description


    I am easy going guy who loves getting involved in creative projects be it big or small. Often the more challenging the project the better, it takes a lot for me to be deterred. I live alone in the house with my dog Lola who is super friendly. Although the project takes a lot of my energy I enjoy to walk and enjoy the surrounding where I live and I am avid movie fan, I also love to cook. There is a rich multi-cultural community of neighbours, so life is never dull.

    I have an 18th Century house that I am currently in the middle of renovating. I am working on the project myself on a full time basis. The house is situated in a village in the beautiful Vallispir part of the Pyrenees orientales where the sun always shines and sky is always blue! The house is located close to the river and to the mountains, ideal for hiking and exploring the area further. There is a lot of work to be done on the house which demands various levels of skills and competence. There is an opportunity for learning new skills: carpentry, masonry, metal work and various art projects. I have an extensive range of tools and equipment.

    Well, this is France, so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine, excellent wines and cheese!! There are regular local farmers' markets and the village hosts many seasonal festivals. It is a predominately French/Catalan-speaking village so plenty of opportunities to learn/practice French. I am originally from Iran so I can offer an additional cultural exchange that of Persian language, music and delicious Persian cooking !!
