The property is a large traditional stone house in the middle of the village of Belesta, which has a small range of shops, bars and restaurants and is in the foothills of the Pyrenees, 30 minutes from a family ski field and surrounded by great local mountain walks and adventure parks.

I would like some general help in the garden and the house: painting and decorating, weeding and digging etc. The walled garden runs down to the river, which also forms part of the property. The river bank needs some restoration and there is a considerable amount of interior decoration and restoration yet to be completed.

I am planning to set up a centre for people to come and stay alongside enjoying the added overall offer of arts and outdoor activities, however, I have a lot of work to do before the property will be fully presentible. The house is arranged over four floors and the accommodation is warm and comfortable with ensuit bathrooms. Helpx visitors and the like are provided with warm comfortable rooms with own bathroom and some additional private space. There are many different jobs so you will be able to choose what best suits you and your skills. Single people or groups of up to 6 people can be accommodated. Any kind of help would be much appreciated.

Trained in the visual arts with a lifetime career in many aspects of the arts, I'm originally from New Zealand but now divide my time between the UK and France. Being a traveller myself, I enjoy having people to stay and the whole exchange experience. I'm also a keen skier, so I'm always looking for mates to go skiing with.

If you want to see further pictures of Belesta you can see my property and the wider area on Google Earth.
