We have a gite/B&B located in the Ariege department of the French Pyrenees, close to the town of Tarascon sur Ariege. Well positioned for rock climbing, walking, biking. We can try to hook you up with other climbers and we have mountain bikes you can borrow.
We are a pretty easy going family with two children, aged 9 and 10. We would like you to work for 4 hours work a day, two days on, one day off. Work will probably be in the mornings as it is approaching summer and the afternoons can be too hot. We can be somewhat flexible with this if you have a particular project or activity you want to do.
The work is out on our land, digging out brambles, nettles, strimming, some landscaping, putting in rustic steps, cutting grass. Not the most exciting jobs but its in a beautiful, peaceful sunny spot with a view across the mountains. Work clothes can usually be provided. Would suit a couple or friends to keep the moral up and we'll be there as much as we can. There is ongoing decorating for wet days, cracking walnuts, sewing tasks, housework, AND entertaining the kids. So plenty of options. We don't ask our helpers to work in the Gite/B&B,and we never leave you in sole charge of the kids. Free wifi access, TV, DVD player. Accommodation will probably be in our spare room, sharing our house and facilities. We like to eat with our helpers and can accommodate vegetarians but any other diets you'll have to sort out yourself. Public transport to the nearest town (5km away) is limited but hitching is commonplace here and we can drop you there from time to time. We've met some fantastic and inspiring people through Helpex, and have a legacy of their projects to remind us of their stay. Hope you'll join us.
