Do you like to spend some time in the beautiful hills in the south of France? In May or June?

We could need you for helpX-jobs or maybe housesitting and taking care of the animals, the garden and the house when we go away for some days.

We have 2 very nice dogs, 6 cats, 4 chickens and 10 cows and some calfs.

We bought an old farm, we moved in (may 2015) and have been renovating since.
You can find our farm at 60 km's south of Toulouse. We are 58 and 62 years old and we are from Holland and moved to France in 2004. We speak dutch, french, english and can understand german. We are open minded and like to meet people from other countries. When we were students we travelled a lot.

During the housesitting you can stay at our farm of course. When you do just HelpX: mainly painting,gardening,fencing, help with woodcutting. We have a nice holidayhouse (gite) for the helpers where you can stay for free. With a new kitchen in it where you can also cook your own meals with our vegetables, beef and eggs if you want. It has a nice garden. Good shower and a washing machine. In the summer it is sometimes rented out, then you can stay at our farm. We have a big house.

The gite is at 13 km from our farm. You have to like the independence. We prefer if you have your own (rental) car. A driverslicence, as a minimum, is required. You have to be able to drive a manual transmission vehicle so you can learn driving a tractor. If you like swimming there is a beautiful lake nearby and if you like walking the woods are all around our farm. We have internet for you at the farm (not in the gite)

If you don't smoke, love nature, have some experience with animals, housesitting, like countrylife, gardening, silence, a sunny climat and working outside please contact us!

We prefer a couple or 2 friends and we like a stay for minimum 2 weeks. You work 5 days a week, 4 hours a day, weekends off.
You can be sure there will be plenty of time for you to do other things in this nice region.
We have bikes for you, but is is hilly over here.
