Come and enjoy some Pyrenean winter sunshine in the beautiful mountains at 500m and possibly some snow, by staying in one of our gites with a wood burning stove.

We need help with all aspects of inside and outside painting including wooded gates, wooden doors and windows, painting of outside of building plus indoor walls and windows and winter garden activities including transplanting some fruit bushes etc Nothing too strenous just time consuming and strong arms needed :o)

Ideally we need up to 4 people for 3 hrs a day on a self catering gite basis for 1-2 weeks ASAP as I am trying to get what I can done outside before the cold sets in. So far the winter has been beautifully sunny and up to 16 in the day but cold and frosty at night, so warm clothes and a good hat and gloves needed for the mornings and evenings. The gite is nice and warm though

Anyone who is free and up for the challenge, I can collect you from the nearest town of St Girons which is 20 mins away and easy to access by train and bus directly from Toulouse

The whole area around us is a regional natural park and is superb for relaxing, walking, cycle, anything in the mountains, bird watching, summer fishing, motor cycling, skiing - snow permitting at Guzet, triathlon training etc There is also the lovely local very hippy market on a Saturday which I am more than happy to take you down to. So come and enjoy some beautiful countryside and maybe snow on the high mountains with an enormous choice of walks for all levels, historical sites and towns etc. Great for relaxation as we are almost a 'white zone' here

In exchange we am offering you a nice gite to stay in with 2 bedrooms - 1 x double and 1 x twin bunk beds for upto 4 people and the place is in a lovely spot, right next to the river and very peaceful. No wifi but mobile signal still works fine

Aleu is a typical village in the French Pyrenees, 1 hr from the Spanish border and 1.20 hr south of Toulouse, with easy access to both the Med and Atlantic coasts (3 + hrs away in both cases)

Your own transport is advantages but not essential and would help you enjoy the local area and that it has to offer.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone who is available

Many thanks
