We are looking for volunteers to help with renovating a 350 year old farmhouse and outbuildings. The property is surrounded by its own 8 ha of farmland and meadows, situated in an elevated position with stunning views towards the Pyrenees in a small village approx. 10 km from Marciac.
We are an English family with over 30 years of construction experience, particularly working on historical buildings in the UK. We are willing to share our knowledge and skills with willing helpers. Your accommodation will be in a two bedroomed mobile home (9mx3m), with shower & WC. Three meals a day will be provided, together with local wine!
The work will initially consist of some demolition, stripping out, general labouring, and assisting trades people. A full driving licence would be an advantage and there will be an opportunity to be taught to operate a digger on site.
The renovation of the farmhouse will be very sympathetic and we will be considering using enviromentally friendly products and systems.
