  • Descrição


    Hi! We are a couple from Barcelona and the Basque Country in Spain living in the Ariege in South France. We both speak Spanish as a first language although I (Melissa) speak fluent English. We are learning French!
    We live in a large detached house with a big garden in a quiet village named Lagarde, right next to the village chateau. The village has no shops or cafés but all services are available in the nearest town, Mirepoix, which is 10 minutes away by car.
    We need some help with the garden and around the house as we can´t deal with it all while working and studying French! In the garden there is weeding, raking, mowing and chopping wood to be done. Also piling stacks of branches, moving some piles of stones for us to build a wall, help us build a compost area, stuff like that. As we will be painting some parts of the house, we will need help preparing the areas, painting, then cleaning up after. Help moving some furniture and boxes around, cleaning windows... Basically, it's just giving us a hand with stuff we are doing around the house. In exchange we provide a large double bedroom with private shower and toilet and a cooked meal a day (lunch or dinner depending on the day) in exchange for 2 to 3h work (you decide when to do them) 5 days a week. We are generally flexible and easygoing about timetables and days of work, talking about it all at the beginning and all parts agreeing and committing is the best idea. <3
    We are mainly plant based and I'm very much into cooking so expect a nourishing, healthy daily meal. If you like Indian food, you are in for a treat :) You can of course store food in the fridge and cook for yourself at other meal times.
    If you do not have a vehicle, we can look into picking you up at the nearest train or bus station. The garden is big enough to have a van or small truck parked up here and connected to electricity. Of course, you are welcome to use all common areas as well as the washing machine, WIFI, etc.
    We have bikes you are very welcome to use - we live right next to a cycling loop on an old railway track that is simply lovely.
    We have two cats and a chihuahua :)
    Any questions please let us know, let's have a chat about whatever doubts there may be. We're looking forward to making new friends and exchanging knowledge and culture!
