Two and a half years ago we bought Bacou, which is a beautiful traditional stone house set in 16 hectares of grazing, wood and shrub land in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It used to be a farm but has not been farmed in many years. The previous owners renovated the house to a beautiful standard. The surrounding land is for the most part untouched nature.
We are a English (Rob) / German (Julia) couple with a 2.5 year old, very lively son Fynn, 1 dog, a cat and 9 chickens. Rob is a marine engineer and Julia a vet.
The house is made up of a main part and a gite connected to one side , with a separate entrance.
It lies in its own valley, boardered on one side by a lovely clear stream and on the other side by cliffs at the top of a hill. On the property there is grazing land, old fruit trees as well as some new fruit trees and lots of wild untouched nature.
We have set ourselves several goals to achieve:

We are an anglo-french couple who have just finished building an ecological (straw bale and earth and straw) house for our family in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We live in an 'eco-hamlet' of five houses. We are looking for help with our permaculture vegetable patch, some finishing touches to the house, and harvesting herbs as part of a cooperative plant project. We expect 5 hours work a day in exchange for meals and accommodation in our house or barn. There a places to put up tents or park vans. Our ideal helpers have some experience or love of gardening, enjoy physical work and like to live simply, close to nature. Work hours can be flexible with whole days off planned for exploring the area. There are lakes, rivers, mountains, all within easy reach, as are small villages with lots going on in terms of concerts and events over the summer. The food is mostly vegetarian but some meat occasionally appears on the table.
