We are a fun loving family who relocated from the UK 14 years ago and since have enjoyed hosting over 70 people in our home in France. We are looking for a couple to come and stay this winter/spring to help with painting, other DIY chores and the garden once weather warms up again. We are happy to host for two-four weeks.
We are Matt, Becky, Edouard (12) and Henri(10). Animal family consisting of Dusty the cocker spaniel, Heidi the labrodoodle, Ella and Joe the cats, Pinky and Perky two pot bellied pigs and around 10 chickens.

We love living the good life in France but need extra pairs of hands to get things done. We are a young fun loving family living and working in the Ariege Pyrenees. During the last 14 years in France we have renovated our home whilst running our building company, which renovates houses for others.

So if you are an enthusiastic,self motivated, or hands on type of people willing help with jobs around the property, or happy to work in the veggie garden we would be happy to welcome you into our home.
Non smokers only please. We can not accommodate further pets, as we have too many!

Stays from two weeks to 1 months.
We can offer you our attic guest suite in our house, with double and two singles. We offer you three meals a day with the family, full use of internet, phone and bikes in return for working a 26 hours a week . We eat a lot of what we produce and grow. We eat a healthy varied diet including plant, meat, fish and vegetarian foods. So if you enjoy rural mountain scenery and want to discover a special part of France then we are happy to show you around the area. So come and stay with us and help us out next year.
