We are Simon (48 years old, ex-timber framer with a small recycling business) and Frauke (53 years old, musician and amateur film maker), with two grown up daughters, both of whom are studying art, and home from time to time. Living in the beautiful Gers countryside (between Bordeaux and Toulouse), we have a large organic garden and orchard. We have a very cute dog, cats and some geese with occasional aggression management issues.
We are looking for four hours help a day in the house, garden, and with the odd building project. No experience is necessary but smiles & enthusiasm are always welcome! We have a large wood and metal workshop, bicycles that can be borrowed, internet access available, a ping pong table, and in the summer a small swimming pool. As for accommodation, we have a room in the house or a caravan in the garden to offer. We are vegan but helpers are welcome to supplement their meals with meat or cheese if they want.We both enjoy playing music ( drums and guitar) and would welcome anyone who fancies a jam of an evening.
Looking forward to meeting you!
P.S We speak mainly English at home and are not really ideal if you are wishing to brush up on your French.
