Hello, we are a friendly British couple living in an 18thC farmhouse in very beautiful, unspoilt countyside. We aim to live in harmony with our surroundings where we grow organic veg., fruit & nut trees and herb & flower gardens.
Also living with us are 2 friendly dogs and we have free range chickens.
Please note: as we live with animals and a variety of trees and grasses this not a place to visit if you have allergies!
From mid May we would love some help in the garden and general help maintaining our old farmhouse.
Our nearest town is Marciac, 8 kms away, and is accessible by bicycle and lifts by car for example on market days.
This is a very peaceful and beautiful area, ideal for lovers of nature, walkers, cyclists or if you like to practice meditation or yoga.
On selected dates we run residential painting courses with full board. I do the cooking and Jamie teaches. Jamie is also a professional musician and music teacher.

We would appreciate help to clear scrubland, leaving some areas for wildlife and to create walks through mature trees, vines and shrubs; scything (Jamie can teach this), pruning, moving wood, weeding.

We would ask you to work 25 hours per week and to lend a hand at mealtimes, preparing or clearing away.
In return, we offer comfortable accommodation, full board with plenty of food, free wi-fi, weekly use of washing
machine, bicycles, piano, violin,guitar and opportunity to enjoy and share in our rural french experience and lifestyle.
