i live in a small village in the Ariege within the recently created regional nature park, in a wand beautiful part of the Pyrenees. I have a large property and am looking for help in maintaining it, pruing trees, planting vegetables and so on. There is from time to time further work on electrical upkeep, plumbing, roof timberwork painting, etc to be done.
Along with a friend, i am also carrying out a restauration project on an old templar command post, dating back to the 17th century. Current tasks are whitewasshing walls inside and restauring dry stone walls outside. We are a sizable group and it's very enjoyable work, carried out in great spirit.
The area offers diverse attractions to visitors: activitywise, there is hiking, caving, climbing, canyoning, hang-gliding, horse riding, ski_ing in winter. Culturally we are also a major centre for prehistory, with many famous caves in the area. For more recent history, there are a number of cathar castles, including Montsegur.
I offer comfortable accomodation bed room, separate bathroom and lounge,and a shared kitchen.
I hope the above will prompt you to come and pay a visit!
With best wishes
