WE'RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO COME IN LATE FEB, MARCH OR APRIL, TO FOR ABOUT 7 DAYS OR MORE, YOU COULD BE PUTTING UP OUR YURT CAMP AND LANDSCAPING IT, GETTING OUR ORGANIC VEGETABLE GARDENS GOING AGAIN AFTER THE WINTER, MAYBE LAYING A PATH/TERRACE, SOME CLEANING AND PAINTING WORK AROUND THE HOUSE TO PREPARE IT FOR LETTING, OR HELPING WITH WOODING, amongst a host of other things...

We're open to people coming on other dates too.
but mainly want helpers in March and April..

We are two artists with a young family, dog, cats and chickens, we live in an old stone farm, set in beautiful valley in the South west of France.

We love travel, music, painting, books, good food, walking, talking, laughing, and anything creative.

We ask that you work 5 days out of seven. We are looking for motivated, friendly people of any age, who are willing to get stuck in.
Weekends are your own.

We can offer you a small caravan, or the yurt (depending on the time of year) to stay in, there's a compost toilet and an outdoor shower for you to use.

We're looking for lively, child-friendly people...
You could be painting, restoring old French furniture, laying paths, preparing the two organic gardens for planting, chopping wood, weeding, tree transplanting, helping around the house.
Other things might be strimming/weed wacking if you can use the machine, there are various building projects on the go that you might be able to help out with.... there are lots of things to do.
Anyone who has experience and skills using a chainsaw is especially welcome as there is always lots of wooding to be done...


The air is fresh, the surroundings are peaceful and the environment is relaxed. (most of the time!)
There are stunning walks to go on, it's a beautiful area with a great weekly Sunday market, a cinema with a few English films 8kms away, plenty of traditional French villages to explore.

We have loads of books to read on travel, art, gardening, yoga, and lots of other subjects.
We love to meet other artists, travellers, gardeners, musicians, yogis, poets, cooks, people who know about yurts, wood, sewing, canvas, other alternative dwellings or green oak building, anyone who knows about permaculture, computer buffs who can use photoshop/dreamweaver, and just about anybody who's interested in anything!
Come and join us.
