This is an old mid 1700 French farmhouse in the earlyish stages of conversion . While habitable ( currently 2 usable bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus kitchen and lounge) with solar heating woodburner and underfloor geothermic heating in 2/3rds of the ground floor, plus re-newed electricity and water supplies, there is Shedloads of work still to be done , both inside and out. This is definitely a "work in progress " house, livable but not finished!

As the cooler weather approaches , there is a need for help with plastering,interior wall building and electrics , so anyone looking for warm accommodation in return for help with these skills, would be most welcome !! Although there are many sunny warm days left to try and finish building the log store!!
Most of the electrics are now done , although building a new pool and starting soon on an outdoor kitchen so more stone work and electrics will soon be needed . Garden ( a small part )under control , but the rest of the land is a jungle , so help needed there and the roof is still not on the log store !!!!!
PLus the pile of logs keeps growing , so anyone into cutting and splitting logs is most welcome !!

New pool finished and now have planning for outdoor kitchen , so tilers and wall builders are wanted , as well as "jungle-tamers" for most of the garden
We are in a little hamlet in the countryside of the South West of France in the department of the Pyrenees- Atlantiques. We are between Sauveterre du Bearn and St Palais on the Bearn / Basque border. One hour from Biarritz and an hour from Spain, nestled beneath the Pyrenees.
