English presentation:
Hello,

Within the natural reserve of Pyrénées ariégeoises, you’ll be welcomed by us in a large stone country house rebuilt after the French Revolution. Between the villages of Capoulet and Junac, the house is surrounded by two rivers, fields and woods. This old « Commanderie Hospitalière » of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem was known as of 1130.

Come and see a small corner of paradise and help us restore this future home and place dedicated to artist-in residence programs.

Update Summer 2016: Garden help needed late July/early August - trimming hedges, creating veggie plots and creating hardstanding.

In late 2013 we bought a property on the banks of the River Aveyron in the gorgeous Tarn region. It's relatively modern (built in the 1970's as a summer holiday home) but was in need of some conversion and improvement for all year occupation and an extension. All of this has now been achieved with the hard work of our wonderful helpers from near and far! Next to do is some tidying of the outside areas and the creation of a 'beach' area by the river. Your help would be required for 25/30 hours per week, please. General handyman skills would be fantastic but strong biceps and a 'can-do' attitude are all we really need. Gardening know-how would be great too.

During your stay with us you will live either with us in our house, in our ageing but cosy caravan or in our 3.5metre Yurt pitched at the end of our garden on the riverbank, where you can enjoy... more inside

A Rustic, Organic Mountain Paradise.

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

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

This year's projects include, insulating the roof of the main house, making a bathroom in the cellar, 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 try to work with organic materials in a sustainable way.

Even for people who want to come and help with cooking, including transformation of foods (conserves, lactofermentation etc. and other domestic work are most welcome. there is a plac... more inside

Hi there!

We have just confirmed a contract with friends of ours that are artisanal. We are going to be putting on a new roof on our house.

We need people August, September and October.

You do not need to be a specialists in roofs for this job.

This roof will be done in the traditional style using slate tiles.

If you fancy coming and helping out get in touch.

Our nearest town is Saint Girons which is famous throughout the Pyrenees for it's Saturday market.

We are well travelled folk ourselves however becoming pregnant with our number 2 we decided to buy this beautiful farmhouse and settle down. We chose here purely for the lifestyle. Rich in food, rich in health and rich in beauty.

We have a good mixture of local and international friends and we are a bilingual family.

Life here in the hamlet is pretty special. Although our neighbours are a lot older (and were born here in the hamlet, literally) they have welcomed us with open arms and accepted us... more inside

WHO WE ARE :

We are a family of six :
- the parents Aurélie (Lilie) and Fabien (Lulu), both 38
- and the 4 children : a girl, Elaë (13 1/2), two boys, Nino (11) and Goran (8 1/2) and a little girl, Izia (almost 2).

We are sociable and look forward to welcoming travelers who want to discover our beautiful region.
The children are home schooled and we both are our own bosses : Lulu is a tree-pruner and Lilie sells organics and ecological articles for families and teaches how to make home-made cosmetics.
That also means we regularly need some more help at home but can be available to host people any time.

The two parents are fluent English speakers, but also a little of Spanish and German.

We like nature, animals, ecology, self-made things (gardening, bread-making, cooking, natural cosmetics,etc), music, computers, art, reading, etc.
The children like reading, doing the computer, the circus, handcrafts, animals, and going to the lake almost every day in summertime.

We are looking for someone who has experience in roofing, a professional if possible as our house in the Pyrenees needs some work in this area. We are trying (reluctantly) to sell the house since we are getting old and cannot manage the garden or the hills in the area. We are looking for someone for September this year for hopefully around two weeks (as we envisage the repair job will take less time that this) William is a retired chef so food (and wine) will be good and plentiful. We can offer a room that has one double bed and one single. We also have a small caravan in the garden if preferred. We can provide references and photos on request. At present we have a house sitter in the house and he loves the area (and the house). He also knows what work is to be done so can put any potential helpexers in the picture.However, we intend to be in the house ourselves in September

Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, with 4 hectares of scenic terrain bordered by a large stream. As well as having a variety of animals, fruit trees and vegetable garden, we are currently developing the project in order to be a workshop/retreat centr.
We are interested in singing, music, dance, yoga, meditation, massage, well-being and nature. We form part of a vibrant local community, with regular music and dance events.
We need all kinds of help, and so can adjust to the preferences of people who stay with us. We can also help non-natural French speakers improve their language skills and offer an experience of the local culture here in Ariege.
