House-Sitting in Estadens, France



After our wonderful stay in Olargues, we were off to our next destination, Estadens, a teeny tiny little village about 200 km west of Olargues.

Olargues, a Medieval Town in the Midi-Pyrenees, France

























We arrived in Olargues on June 9th. It had been a decent travel day- we took the shuttle to the airport in Beauvais (1 hr ride- 17.90 euro/person) and then a flight to Beziers, an hour's drive from our first workaway in the south of France ($26/person- funny how the shuttle and the flight almost cost the same). The airport in Beziers is very small, there are only two gates, with only one airline operating out of it. We arrived around 7pm but it was still light out and we found our hosts Elke and Norbert waiting for us in the tiny airport's parking lot.
