We are from Oxfordshire, UK and would like to visit Spain and southern France for 3 months to and experience living and working there with a view to living there ourselves in the future.
We are both relaxed and organised people, and don't like taking life too seriously...a bit of fun is very important!
We are used to sharing homes with others as we have had two Monday-Friday lodgers for the past 4 years in our home, so we know how to respect others space and privacy.
We are: myself (Hayley), my husband (Keith) and our 3 year old mini-schnauzer Ursa. Ursa is very well behaved, great with children, cats and other animals.
My background was scientific research (for 20 years) but for the past 18 months I am working as a nutritionist/cook/gardener. We sometimes eat meat and fish, but we can & have followed vegan diets at times so we are very flexibIe with food. I also have basic sewing and upholstery skills, and I am the chief decorator in our partnership.
Keith has worked in the building trade for over 20 years, and has skills in brick-laying, carpentry, roofing, basic plumbing, ground works and landscaping. In addition to this over the past seven years he has trained in NLP and coaching, which has lead to him coaching and training in businesses and schools.
We like most outdoor activities, especially hiking, running, cycling, sea-swimming and kayaking. We both practice yoga intermittently, are interested in personal development and meeting new people.
We are interested in helping out on eco-projects/build, off-grid living, learning about Spanish/French law regarding building & buying, learning new skills and experiencing life with others.
If we sound like people you would like to spend time with, do get in touch.
