We are a British couple, both teachers, and have a young child. We live in Foix, France, a historic town of around 11000 inhabitants in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We moved here in summer 2012 from the Middle East, and have lived outside the UK for many years. Between us we can also speak French, Japanese, Spanish and some German.

Our house has five bedrooms, a good-sized garden and a roof terrace, and is a ten-minute walk from the town centre. It is situated right on the edge of town, so although we are close to amenities, we are also close to the countryside. In the summer months, we run a small B&B.

The local area is one of great natural beauty. It is famous for its Medieval villages (bastides) and Cathar castles. Being near the Pyrenees, it is popular with hikers and mountain bikers, and for winter sports. Foix is a small but bustling town, an hour away from Toulouse, with its big-city entertainment, shopping and nightlife.

Our house still needs quite a bit of work doing, and we are always very busy with our teach, with a range of jobs and with various DIY jobs. These are not big projects, but we'd love to have someone who is able to work independently and can do fairly heavy work (digging, DIY jobs, etc).

We have spare bedrooms, which are our guest bedrooms, so are clean and comfortable. There is also a dedicated bathroom. We would offer meals as well in return for four hours of work per day.
