We are Chris and Mike and, following many years of holidays in the Gers, in South West France, we moved here on a permanent basis a year ago, in September 2016. Our home is a Gascony Chateau - part of which dates back to the 14th century - which has a large barn, gite, out buildings, swimming pool and over 5 hectares of land. We run a chambres d'hotes and rent out the gite for self catering. We share our home with a large, friendly, Labradoodle called Hugo! Whilst he is very sociable, we are not able to take anyone travelling with a pet.

Our house is located in a rural setting on the edge of a very small hamlet, 5 kms from a small market town with bars, restaurants, supermarkets etc and 24 kms from the departmental capital, Auch. Toulouse (accessible by train from Auch) is 1.5 hours by car, the Pyrenees and Bordeaux approximately 2 hours drive.

Whilst we have numerous indoor and outdoor projects one of our plans is to make our woodland more accessible to guests and visitors. W... more inside

We need an experienced handyman/couple/friends for about a month. Some experience in one or more of the following would be lovely: carpentry/building/renovation, gardening, painting walls, installing insulation, plumbing, electrics, chain saw, mechanical, electrical, cooking, cleaning, etc... I would say that a more mature couple, at least mid-late twenties + with a reasonable amount of varied life experience would suit us best. Good standard of English or French would be appreciated.

We have bikes for riding in the beautiful countryside all around and our little farm of 23ha has forests, fields, orchards and views of the pyrenees.

The train from our village station goes to all points in the Pyrenees and Toulouse is 40 minutes away by train. You can also take the train to the border of Spain in the Pyrenees and it is a spectacular ride! There are trains and buses all over the pyrenees to great walking trails, cycling, swimming and fishing spots too.


Thank you!

Hello, we’re Reinhold (49) and Karen (50) and we are your hosts on “All life is Made of StarDust” Art & Permaculture Community Project.

At the beginning of the new millennium we left our art farm in Belgium and started an organic garden in the south of France. Now we escaped out of the grinder of parenthood (only joking ;-)), and free at last we’re ready to pick up the artistic way of life once more.

Karen has experience as an actor and singer, trained classical guitarist.
Reinhold played the bass in an avant garde rock band The Ludoos, he painted hundreds of tribal paintings on canvas, hardboard and handmade paper, thousands of pages poetry and short stories.

In 2019 we would like to start an artist residency program for professionals, emerging or established artists here on the semi-isolated and rural permaculture farm located in the idyllic hills of the Volvestre, Midi Pyrenees region.

The farm consist of several buildings, there is the old farmhouse built ... more inside

Bonjour!

We are Dalila (French), Pete (English), Emilie (8 1/2 years old) and Sidney (5 1/2 years old). Our place is an old chateau set in 29 acres of meadow, in the Pyrenees mountains, 1h30 south of Toulouse.

We'd love you to help us with:
- Splitting wood for heating next winter
- Stacking wood
- Tidying up the vegetable patch (weeding, turning soil, etc...)
- Clearing up the barn
- Painting windows


Looking for practical and hard-working people, who enjoy physical work and being outdoors. We need people who can chainsaw and split wood, as this will be the main bulk of help we require... You should be fairly independent and comfortable around children as our kids will love interacting with you!

About us:
We've finished renovating the interior of the chateau in 2009, and with sustainability in mind, installed solar panels for hot water, photovoltaic panels for electricity, rain water collection, composting. We're using our own wood for cooking and heating in th... more inside
