Welcome to our big old family house.

Since few years, me and my cousine, french young workers respectively in health and ecological building ; have tried to "restore" it in summer time, with some help. It is located one hour from Toulouse, near a little village with a shop / restaurant / tobacco / bar. The house is surrounded by fields, with no neighbors except cows sometimes, and gives an unobstructed view over the Pyrénées.

This summer, i would like to host a week long, from Thursday, August 13th to Wednesday 19th, more or less one day according to you. You can arrive directly by car, or I can pick you up at a train station "Boussens".

During this week with you, I would like to restore one room (coating, painting, wall paper hanging), and doing some other works in a barn and around the house. More or less. It will depend of the number of helpers you will be.
I plan to work around 6 hours a day and be free the rest of the time.

The house counts around 5 bedrooms wi... more inside

Hi

**4-5 days in Sept/Oct** PAINTING/DECORATING/CLEANING/GARDENING - Yummy food provided and Good Company!

We are Sarah and Stuart, originally from UK but are now loving living in the South of France. We have a 4 year old son, a cat, Loki and a dog, Mojo.
We have a large 18th Century 5 bedroom/5 bathroom house in a quiet village inbetween Foix and St Girons in the National Park in the Ariege - Midi-Pyrenees. We run a gite and chambres d'hotes business and are looking for some help in September or October to re-paint some of the rooms and give the place a good deep clean. There may also be some work in the garden - cutting back fruit trees, collecting the fruit etc. If we have guests, some help with breakfast and change-overs would be appreciated.We live in an appartment attached to the house, so you will have the main house to yourself, unless we have B&B guests. We would ideally like 2 people to help us - a couple would be ideal but we can accommodate more. Some experience w... more inside

Hi I'm in the Ariège, south West of France, in the Pyreneese, 1 hr from Toulouse. I have just opened a small cattery and take dogs in not as a kennels closed in a box, but with me and my 3 cocker spaniels and cats, so everyone must get along!! I Have a nice house that needs lots of bits and bobs doing. All help would be welcome either with the dogs, especially august and in September, or with building work around the house, if that was your thing. There is nothing horribly strenuous but having someone else does get me motivated!!!
The ariège is a beautifull area, lovely country and some fun people. I'm 48 and live with my 3 cocker spaniels, 2 young cats and chickens.
My house is in a little hamlet 16km from Saint Girons which is a nice town with a great saturday market, I do help out selling organic veg there. And then about 1 hr from Toulouse. Do contact me if you have any questions.
a BIG MUST though, you MUST like animals as they are my life and job :-)))

Hi There; We are a family of 3 anglo/belge street theatre / cabaret performers (Ben, Saskia and Dixie Lu aged 9) who moved to this wonderful area of Haute Garonne from Antwerp in Belgium 3 years ago. During that time we have been building and renovating like crazy, setting up our vegetable garden, exploring and harvesting wood from our 10 acre wild forest, and generally adapting to this new way of life. We are striving to run our place on permacultural principals with varying degrees of success! In our local village which has an incredible market on Sunday mornings we, with others, set up a café / venue which we now run as a collective. We still perform and teach but we are also broadening our line(s) of work. I (Ben) did a year long Mindfulness Meditation teacher training course and now teach, and Saskia teaches dance and has a vegetable paté business (!!).

We always need help with general maintenance (some strimming, veg garden, woodland etc), and we are also in the process of ... more inside

We are a french-belgian family with three lovely children (aged from 11 years to 5 years old) living on an old farm halfway between Toulouse (45min.by car or train) and the Pyrenees.
We have a large organic vegetable garden; 0,5ha of appletrees; some woodland, and a big river to swim in during summer.
Depending on the season the appletrees need trimming, the apples picked, we make compote and juice. During spring and summer a lot is to do in the vegetablegarden, we do make all sorts of jam, jars of ratatouille, conserves...
We are renovating the house so there is always sanding, painting, breaking down and building up going on.

We are a dynamic family, always something going on and our children are very happy with people around.
We've got a big caravan to host people - in the house there is a spare bedroom as well.

We live in a very beautiful area, great nature, old villages, the nice city of Toulouse not far, small markets, ...

We speak both flemish (dutch) and fr... more inside

I am a single mum from a 10 years old boy, I am working in an organisation which is working with international volunteers. I would need some help in my daily life and someone who could stay home while I participate to some meetings in the evenings. It will not be more than 4 working hours a day. I am living in south french country side, and through my work and my local connections, I think the experience here can be rich and interesting in several topics!
