We are bringing back to life a 500 year old French house in the foothills of the mountains that has suffered more than 50 years of neglect. It has a fertile garden that is totally, naturally organic but needs clearing and planting with our choice of vegetation rather than what chooses to grow there itself (in great profusion).

The sort of jobs that we would like help with include cooking, food preparation and preservation, cleaning, re-organising, repairing, rebuilding, and decorating in the house, and clearing, landscaping, planting, weeding, power and other tool maintenance and repair, etc.

We are looking for people who share our desire to have a simple sustainable lifestyle that is stress free and very much aligned with the principles of nature. We like to meditate, practise yoga, we are vegetarian, we do not smoke or drink alcohol, and we prefer wherever possible to use herbs and natural healing methods over allopathic medicine.

We aim to enjoy working with you in all ... more inside

At the moment do need someone who is good at interior painting (decorating); a couple of people (see below) However only one needs to have decorating qualifications or experience the second person can help prepare - there are always other indoor tasks during the winter months.
Tasks in the garden are on hold until the spring. Even if you do not have decorating experience it may still be worth an email -plans often change
Should you be planning to travel this way please read on......

Keith and I took early retirement from our careers in the UK to live the dream here in the beautiful Ariege; we certainly did live the dream together and have shared a wonderful life. Keith lost his battle with cancer in 2018.
More than ever I need help especially with indoor decorating and the garden.

Please note I am unable to accommodate singles or people with children or pets.

Hello, we are looking for a helping hand in house and kitchen. The helper does not need to know everything, happiness and smiles are more important.

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.

Host is a Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher who runs mindfulness retreats. Have just moved house so need help in autumn & spring with gardening. Also help with website and social media would be appreciated.

Vegetarian organic cooking. You will have your own room in our house. Prefer people with experience.

Plans for 2019 is to improve the veggie garden and create a permaculture forest garden. Also to convert stone hut into a summer dwelling with solar shower and compost toilet.

Beautiful location on edge of medieval village with train station. South facing with view over forest - fantastic walks. We have bikes to borrow. Great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding.

What we offer is space for you to reconnect with yourself and nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.
Helpers are welcome to join in weekly yoga classes.
