We are an English couple who operate 2 gites in the beautiful French countryside. 1 hour south of Toulouse and 35 mins from Carcassonne. Help is needed with gardening and general maintenance. The 3 properties (we live in 1 of them) are situated in 3 hectares, with a private pool, a lake, spectacular views of the Pyrennees and very rural, we are 15 mins drive away from the closest town, where young night life is very limited. We have a dogs, a Boxer a handful of chickens. Mums an artist and runs the gites and loves her big vegetable garden, (a great cook too), Dads a builder. We are a very easy going household. Looking for a couple to help out in May and then perhaps stay in our mobile home with great views free of charge for the summer in exchange for helping 2 days per week with the change overs.

Germaine & Bernard eat what they produce.
They have a small vineyard, garden and orchard.
Bernard tend a few beehives and is willing to share his passion.
This is your opportunity to experience French rural life.
They ask the helpers to do various odd jobs at the property,
be communicative and not engrossed in " screen-based activities ",
therefore, leaving their " virtual world " behind.
They must be interested in their tasks, the people and things that surround them.
Aids must be used to work manually.
Here, what is interesting is their self-sufficient lifestyle.
Unfortunately, they cannot cater for vegetarians.
The hosts speak French and they get by in English.
If you meet to these conditions, you will be very welcome.

We speak English and French / Nous parlons français (ci-dessous).

Update: we now can't take helpers until later in the year - will update once we have a better idea of timing.

Own transport not required but helpful if you want to go exploring (we live about 9km from public transport and can come and get you from Ax les Thermes). Max twenty hours' work over the week. Single, couple or two friends welcome, as long as you don't mind sharing a double bed. If you're available for a week or so this month, get in touch!

Nous cherchons quelqu'un qui puisse nous aider à préparer le jardin (cloturage etc) et peut-être des travaux dans la maison (en mesure du temps qu'il fait). Durée huit jours. Nous pouvons venir vous chercher à Ax les Thermes, mais si vous voulez visiter un peu la région il vaut mieux avoir votre propre voiture. Vous serez logé dans une chambre avec un seul lit double.

We are Jean and Laurence, born in 1965, with two daughters (born in 1993 and 1995 and gone from home - most of the time now).
You will find references about us, as couch-surfer and BeWelcome hosts, see our website links above.
We are part of the couch-surfing network since 2007 and we like it very much !
We are french, good English speakers, poor Spanish speakers.
In 2004, we bought a country house in the Pyrenees. We live and work in Aix-en-Provence, but we spend most of our holiday time in this house, doing usually the following activities :
- repairing the house
- taking care of the garden
- hiking, running, cycling, swimming in the St Pée d'Ardet little lake, cooking, reading, participating to the life of the village ...

The house is situated in a village named Galie, near the banks of the Garonne river (the house was flooded in June 2013, one meter of water + mud for 24 hours no serious damage because we live upstairs). The beautiful Pyrenees are all around, and Sp... more inside

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.

My name is Catherine, and I am english living in a very beautiful part of the pyrenees. I bought a near ruin of a farmhouse twelve years and have been renovating it ever since.A labour of love. There is still more to do and I want to extend the garden to make a organic garden to give my children vitamins! Up until now I have being doing alot of work myself alongside my ex husband, but have slowed down a bit with mothering.If you are interested in stonewalling, general decorating work and creating a vegetable garden, it may suit you. Also the surrounding area is very beautiful for walking, nature and skiing in the winter.There is a small bread house across the garden which
would be your bedroom and bathroom so a bit of privacy.
