    Descrição

    Hello! We are a friendly, creative, fun, well travelled male couple who own a beautiful 18th Century Chateau in the French Pyrenees, 50 minutes South of Toulouse, "the Pink City", 30 minutes from the Spanish border & just 10 minutes from the nearest large town of St-Gaudens with its shops, market, amenities & train station.

    Our home is set on a hilltop in 10 acres of stunning, grown gardens with gorgeous views of the Pyrenees & the valley below. Bringing the house and grounds back to their original splendor has been a labour of love & we are happy to share such beauty with others.

    We have a tubby cat, hens, Koi Carp & even a pair of swans to share our home with us.
    The garden is full of English roses, flower borders, rare & exotic plants, herb & vegetable gardens, a large pond, a bamboo forest & woodland. We also have a lovely swimming pool & an art studio.

    The area is very rural & pretty much unchanged by modern life; it's a wonderful place to meet French folks & learn about rural life, enjoy nature, go walking, mountain hiking, cycling (we are often on the Tour de France route), water rafting, skiing in Winter, do some speleology, drink coffee & buy locally sourced, organic produce in the local farmers market in the charming village of Aspet, learn about gardening & even pop into Spain for some tapas!
    We are at the edge of a hamlet and therefore it's very quiet and private.

    We can offer Workawayers comfortable accommodation in our very private, detached, fully fitted, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Cottage near the pool.

    We are looking for people with good gardening experience to help us look after the grounds, vegetable garden & woodland, as well as people with DIY experience to help with maintenance chores & larger jobs whenever possible.

    We speak English, French, Italian, Thai & Chinese so there's scope for cultural and language exchange. We are also very knowledgeable about plants, so there will be plenty of opportunities for discussing plants, garden design etc. The sky is the limit!

    We have 2 bicycles you can borrow and we can pick you up from the local train station at St-Gaudens, which has many daily trains from/to Toulouse. We are also happy to drive you to the local market in Aspet or take you with us to the larger town of St-Gaudens when we go shopping a couple of times a week.

    We are great cooks and shall provide you with meals as well, of course.
