    This region, the Gers, is beautiful. It is known as the Tuscany ofFrance. It is also a real food region! I am near a small pretty village and in between 3 lovely vibrant market villages of saint Clar, fleurance and Lectoure. There is a swimming lake just 5 mins away in Saint Clar.
    I am native English but speak quite good French, so could help with language.

  • Aide


    Anyone with previous gardening experience would be a bonus, but not essential. The area to be transformed is a woodland, and bamboo forest, with natural spring and pools. It is gorgeous but very overgrown and needs some love to get it looking peaceful rather than raging!

  • Hébergement


    My house originates 1780, I am renovating slowly and trying not to modernise, rather keep it traditional and sympathetic, and am using eco materials as much as Possible.
    Depending on when work starts, I have a pigeonnier which would be your accommodation. If work has already started on it, i have another self contained bedroom and bathroom.
    I am vegetarian so meals will be meat free, but you are welcome to buy meat for yourselves if that suits you better.

    You would need your own car.
    The market towns are lovely and we can arrange time off for your favourite market. There is also a thermal spa in Lectoure if you want to treat yourself one day.
    A swimming lake very nearby, with boating etc too, restaurant and ‘beach’.
    If you feel the need for a city, or a bit of retail therapy, wonderful Toulouse is just an hour away.
