  • Ajuda


    We (Carol and Rene) live in a beautiful area in the Tarn et Garonne. We live in an old farmhouse that we renovating as well as renovating some outbuildings. We have three cats, two dogs and three horses, so life is busy here!

    A few years ago we got married and throughout the summer we had friends and family stay with us to help us complete some jobs as we had the wedding at home. We enjoyed the experience of having people here and helping so we thought we would try Workaway to help us continue with projects.

    This year we are looking to continue work to the outside of our house, more building work, preparation of external walls for rendering, plaster boarding, etc There are lots of projects to do depending on the weather and how far we are with them.

    Projects may include pointing exterior walls, helping to tidy overgrown areas, help with fencing, help with gardening and the designing of different garden areas, helping to split wood, different renovating and building work depending on the weather and how far we are with projects.

    One of Rene's talents is carpentry. He is making all the woodwork for our new roof, doors, windows, shutters, stairs. Therefore there may be an opportunity to learn woodworking skills.

    Algo mais...

    We are situated on the border of three departments in the Midi Pyrennees, therefore the coast and mountains are easily accessible. We are about 45 minutes away from Toulouse and about the same to Montauban. During the summer months there are lots of great local night markets with food, drinks and music (marche nocturnes), our local village party and there are the local lakes where you can go for a swim, play crazy golf, slides etc.

    We live in a small village and there is no public transport. The nearest town is 12kms away. There may be possibility of using our car but this will need to be discussed. We will be able to collect you from the local airport which is Blagnac.
