My name is Ursula, I live on a 4 hectare property with my daughter Lisa, our dog Balto and two horses Cochise and Djoura.

I am often alone and am in need of some help with the animals and in the garden.
The property is next to a beautiful forest, so for those who enjoy going for walks our house is perfect for you! I have many friends in the surrounding countryside who you will often meet, and I would love to have someone who is happy to care for the dog and horses with me. Helpers with independent spirits (and maybe a drivers license too) are the happiest here.

I also have some other friends (on different farms/ properties) who sometimes take in some of my Helpers too. Sabine, for example, has a black-pig farm near the Pyrenees. Cecile has mohair goats, and Cornelia has 10 horses, chickens, cats and dogs. There may be an opportunity for helpers to spend some time at their houses too.

To resume, the work here is mostly gardening, fencing, horsemanship (relations with the horses and also cleaning up after them ;-)), being with Balto, as well as some restoration (both inside and outside).
Of course I always appreciate those with special talents (painting the walls inside the house etc.).
In terms of the accommodation, we have 2 options for the Helpers. We have a nice room in the main house, or you can stay in the annex which is attached to the garage. You might have the choice!

We don't drink or smoke and would prefer to have Helpers with the same outlook while they are here, however if necessary we can accommodate Helpers who do, and are very respectful.

HelpX has allowed us to share so many life experiences. We have made some great friends, some have even stayed in France.

Maybe we will see you soon!
