Simon and Sylvie live in a suburban house in the suburbs of Toulouse, with a small garden.

UPDATE: for the week JULY 21st to July 29th. Emptying and tidying two garages: a bit of painting: light work needing no particular skills. We`re looking for two friends or a couple if possible.

In exchange for 4 hours a day doing these tasks we shall put you up and feed you with good French cuisine.

We can put helpers up in the attic apartment - an independent flat designed, constructed and decorated by helpers past.

There is a lot to see in Toulouse and we`re only a few minutes from the nearest metro station into town and a nice municipal swimming pool. Helpers often find that a week in a big French city is welcome relief after weeks out in the sticks with no night-life, cafés or young people around. Toulouse has all this ... and more!

Franco-Irish family - Simon and Sylvie - with one 20-year-old daughter.

Non-smokers preferred. We speak French, E... more inside

We are two people. Jean-Louis, the owner of the place and I Frédéric his tenant.
I was touched by the situation of Jean-Louis. He has a severely disabled son Sebastian who lives with his parents. One day or the other they will not be there to take care of Sebastien. Speaking with Jean-Louis, we came up with a project for a gîte and a tavern that could finance a quality institution for Sébastien when his parents can no longer take care of him.
That`s why we call on volunteer workers.
We want to highlight a place neglected for 20 years.
These are two isolated houses in Aveyron, a beautiful region.
One house is to be completely renovated and the other is finished.
There are also many green spaces to highlight and the creation of a large vegetable garden.

We need help with brushing, cutting hedges, fencing and gardening.
We also need help for the renovation of the house, electricity, carpentry, plumbing, painting etc ...
There is a henhouse to repair. Buil... more inside

During the summer, we live mainly on our landscape, where we can host people with a tent.

Yann works a lot, and Marion is often alone with children (Aela, 7 and Loukia, 2), caring about them, and cooking, and watering the vegetable garden, etc. A housemum`s life ! But it`s not enough of quality moments with children, so it would be great for our family to have help during the morning ; it can be for playing with children or for help in other tasks (watering the garden, cooking, etc.).

On our land, we don`t have running water yet ; we use well water for showers and washing-up ; and we only use natural products, like "savon de marseille", or vinegar ; when we need a shampoo or laundry, we go to our apartment, 20min from felzins by car.
We only eat organic food, and we are nearly vegan.

No drugs, no smoker please.

We are looking for people getting well with children :-)
