We are a small Llamas farm, located in the Pyrenees mountains. If you are looking for an original French experience, it could be the right place for you!
Here in the high Pyrenees, near to the Andorra & Spanish border, we offer you the possibility to live and work in a calm and isolated place, surrounded by high mountains and nothing but pure nature, and good meals "à la française" after our activities among our lamas (about 15 of them).
We are a retired French couple, but we used to work and live in foreign countries and continents, which made us interested in people and cultures from all over the world.
In the surroundings, there are beautiful places that we would be happy to make you discover, and if you want, we can trek together with Llamas...
For your own, you`d get an entire and cosy apartment, and join us for generous meals that we like to share and appreciate together (so, no vegetarian requirement, please).
If you are fit : slopes make the work pretty physical ... more inside

EARLY JULY 2018 I need help mostly in the garden.

Should you be travelling our way please read on......

Keith and I took early retirement from our careers in the UK to live the dream here in the beautiful Ariege; part of the Midi-Pyrenees region of SW France. Keith did live his dream.
Together we always have enjoyed working along side the many couples who have stayed with us to help. This year, Keith lost his battle with cancer. Therefore more than ever the garden is in need of additional helping hands.

At the moment short stays are best of me - usually between 5 to 7 days; couples, partners or 2 friends; mature minded people (23 years of age +), who are prepared to share a bedroom with a comfortable double bed.
It may help to know single helpers or couples with children or pets can not be accommodated

DATES
If you are looking for a host between the end of June and the 12th July (between 5 and 7 day) OR some time in September - do make contact. .

Chambres d'hôtes and small holding in the Ariège, Pyrénées, France, we're getting on with it and living the life.......want to help !?

We are looking for helpers for '2 week' slots for July 2018. A COUPLE or 2 FRIENDS, we are asking 5hrs / day (9am - 2pm) ..... 5 days / week.... (2 days & afternoons free = go and explore)

A little bit about us first.......

Kev and I moved to the Ariège, SW France in 2005 and bought an old stone sheep barn. After 4 years renovating, with volunteers for the final two years, we opened in 2010 what is now a successful but small chambre et tables d'hôte business / bed and breakfast, serving dinner with home grown and home reared and local produce.

Kev is a gardener and I am a self trained cook, so with our combined interests, knowledge and talents, we grow our own 'bio' produce and raise Gascon pigs for meat and chickens for eggs. From our produce we create and serve evening dinners, jams, chutneys and pickles to our guests during the year... more inside

...UPDATE... We are urgently in need of a couple to help us throughout the summer season, for all of July and August (although it would be OK to finish around 20th August). There will be a lot of housekeeping during this time, along with gardening work, grass cutting, chicken care, and helping with any maintenance work that needs doing.

We are a Simon and Suzanne, a British couple running holiday accommodation in the Pyrenees from a large property with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In our fourteen years here we have welcomed holidaymakers from all over the world and introduced them to our lovely area, and many have returned to visit us several times. Our two children are now in their 20s and no longer live here.

In our 5 hectares of grounds we keep geese, ducks and chickens for eggs and/or meat. Completing the menagerie are two dogs and two cats.

Outside the main summer season, we would like volunteers to stay for a minimum of two weeks, but this period c... more inside

Perrine, 55 years old, is a self-employed accountant and administrator.

Denis, 54 years old, gave up his career as collective kitchen fitter and repairer to renovate this former summer camp and turn it into a holiday resort which will also provide reception halls for rent.

We have been together for over twenty years and are rather good at DIY (we have already renovated a three floor house near Paris, where we used to live), but we need help to renovate this place, where we have been living for almost a year now, because it’s too big for just the two of us.

Located on the banks of the Aveyron river in Tarn & Garonne, about three kilometers from the village of Saint Antonin Noble Val (cittaslow labelled), our property is made of three separate buildings: an old mill, a very old building full of charm (approximately 600m2) and a more recent building (approximately 500m2). The land is about 18 acres wide and consists of garden, woodland and meadow. The area offers a wide varie... more inside

A Rustic, Organic Mountain Paradise.
(version francaise un peu plus bas!)

un reportage qui a ete fait sur nous:
https://mrmondialisation.org/au-coeur-des-pyrenees-cette-famille-vit-son-reve-dautonomie/

My partner and I (who is from England, I am from France), live in the french Pyrennes, with our boy, Zephyr (3 years old).

The place is beautifull, very quiet and far from the city. There s lots of nice walks to do in the area, and breathtaking scenery.

This year's projects include, finishing our bathroom, make a new dry toilet outside, and a new wood shelter. These are priority jobs, then there are lots of smaller jobs that are always going on. The garden always needs loving attention, there is wood to be cut, chopped and collected, and since we live directly on the mountainside there is always terrassing to make some flat lands, and general landscaping projects. We work with organic materials in a sustainable way.
We also ve got the project to get few goats.
