  • Descrição


    First off, we live in the city. There's just me and my wife Sylvie now, the children have more or less moved on. We live in a big house in the near suburbs with a garden. The first floor is let out to foreign students who study at the local University ... which is about 300 metres away. The top floor is a little apartment which was fitted out by different helpers over the past few years: from Poland, NZ, UK, America and China! Now it serves as a flat for our children ... and for anyone who wants to come a spend a week with us helping with painting, decorating and maintenance tasks.

    Sylvie teaches philosophy at a high school in town. Simon is an estate agent who sells gites and B&Bs to refugees from the UK and America. We speak franglais mainly but are capable of speaking good French, good English and hesitant German.

    Algo mais...

    Toulouse is a little-known city in S France with a beautiful Renaissance centre, fine squares and public buildings, a lively riverside, thousands of good cafés, bars and restaurants and, above all, young people. It's the second university town in France with over 150,000 students. Our local metro station is just 7 minutes away and the bus-stop just 2 minutes.
    The village of Sentein, in the Ariège département of the Pyrenees, is a quiet mountain village with access to countless trails and walks and hikes in the high mountains. Helpers should have the opportunity of working in both these places.
