    Description

    We are looking for some lovely Workaway people to help with our renovation, do some DIY and gardening and occasionally house- sit (this is for specific days only). We are a couple of artists and live near a lively market town in the heart of Gers with our daughter and two cats. We need help with renovating our mid-19th century house (we are mostly doing it ourselves), and landscaping the land surrounding it as we are planning to establish a sculpture park on our land, as well as an artist residence programme for young artists who need space to work and think.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    This part of France (Armagnac) is a gastronome's delight and les produits des terroir are duck, prunes, cherries, foie and of course, Armagnac. The region is known for its wines, the crisp whites of Cotes de Gascogne and the Gros and Petit Mansengs (medium to sweet whites). Any foodies would enjoy their time here. In summer there are always things happening...village fêtes, wine festivals, old car rallys, farmers markets, brocante markets, music concerts etc. Lots to do and see.

    Our property consists of two houses. One that we are renovating, and another that was build in the 70s and is where we live presently. The 70s house is comfortable and has all modern conveniences. You will have a room in the 70s house with private bathroom and toilet and internet access.

    You will have the afternoons and weekends free to explore the area and enjoy the region. We are surrounded by medieval towns and villages, where you can discover how the French used to live, you will get to taste traditional and seasonal French food and enjoy local French wine. In France everybody loves going to the market, so once a week (weather permitting), we will be happy to go to the farmers market together, where you can taste local produce and learn ways to cook with it. Alternatively you can relax and have a dip in our swimming pool.
    We would like you to help for 4-5 hours per day, excluding weekends. We will provide meals/ food, you are welcome to help with cooking.
