After a very successful HelpX 2012, we are now NOT looking for help for the foreseeable future. Thanks to all our Helpers over the past year or so and to everyone who has shown interest in our project so far! Cheers, Rich & Yvett.


During the day we need renovation & garden work with Rich (Yvett works full time) at our farmhouse Le Courtal, near the village of Sieuras (40 mins south of Toulouse) and on an evening we all eat & relax back at 'base' in Le Fossat. 25 hours work a week in exchange for a comfortable bed, great food & conversation (in English, French & Hungarian!) plus a free personal guide to the Pyrenees! We have welcomed 5 HelpXers here since Dec 11 & more are 'booked in' for the Summer!; it has been a very positive & productive experience...we hope and think our Helpers feel the same way! :-) There are more details about us below...if you are interested, please do contact us. Cheers, Rich & Yvett.


In Sep 2011 we bought a farmhouse in the foothills of the Pyrenees with a wonderful garden full of exotic trees & plants. Inside, the house needs substantial modernising; a new bathroom and kitchen needs to be created for guests plus updating existing rooms/bathrooms. There is also plenty of work required outside to cultivate the garden, repair terraces and create areas for relaxation. No real skills required, just lots of enthusiasm and an appetite for experiencing French food! Accommodation & meals provided in our B&B nearby or in the new house, depending on availability of rooms, etc. We are 25 minutes from the high mountains, in a beautiful area full of amazing wildlife, historic villages yet just a 40 minute bus ride from cosmopolitan Toulouse. Carcassonne is just over an hour away. Skiing & snow boarding is an hour at the excellent Ax Les Thermes. Barcelona is only 3.5 hours! Rich is English and Yvett Hungarian; she is an excellent French teacher! She works in our local town. We have dogs, cats, goldfish and a tortoise! We plan to get some sheep early next year.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Rich & Yvett.
