Hallo,

My husband and i live in "les Vosges" a beautiful department in France. We moved to this wonderful place about 15 years ago. Originally we are from the Netherlands . I Am 57 and my husband is 64 years old.
We have a good sense of humor and love to laugh!

Our little farm is situated in a beautiful country side. It is a rather isolated place in a dead-end street. The distance to our village is about 2,5 kilometers. For us a perfect place to offer our animals a lot of freedom .

We have about 35 animals. Dogs, cats, Icelandic horses, goats and sheep and even a donkey.
For us these animals are not just animals but dearly loved pets. Most of them are adopted and rescued animals. It is our goal to give them a chance to a second and a better life.

Horseback riding is possible, but you will have to be an experienced rider.
We also have an old bike you can use to explore the surroundings.

There are lots of different things to do.
It could be taking care off the... more inside

Dear Helpers,

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette & Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

IN ORDER TO GET AN APPROPRIATE ANSWER, PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION, AND WHEN YOU CONTACT US PLEASE ANSWER TO ALL THE QUESTIONS WE ASK AT THE END.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose B&B with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sheep,... more inside

Gerry and I would love to have some help with the garden and renovation work. It may be that you are on your way to somewhere else and want a week or two HelpX volunteering enroute. You would have your own accommodation with kitchen and you can either eat with us or we can take you shopping in the local village and market. We are close to the local town, Riberac 24600, that has shops, bars, restaurants as well as horse riding canoeing and lots of wonderful walks.
A lot of the work is largely unskilled and is about assisting rather than working on your own (although if you have special skills we would be happy to assist you) so dont worry if you havent done much helping yet. We can provide all the equipment including gloves and boots.
We have been here some years and are technically retired but life is too boring with nothing to do so we run a chambre d’hotes and host weddings so life from June is pretty full on. We have three cats, although I think that we feed many more than th... more inside

# Helpers welcome in August #

We are living in a former 18th century farmhouse in the countryside 40 minutes by train north of Strasburg, 50 min. to Karlsruhe or Baden-Baden in Germany. The house is surrounded by a large garden in a picturesque alsatian village below the Vogesian mountains. We have reformed it, using traditionnal and organic material. We would appreciate help - 4hours/day - in the garden (mostly organic) i.e. mowing the grass, picking the fruit, helping tending the vegetable and flower garden etc, and some light maintenance work in- and outside the house, like painting shutters, according to the season. We ourselves travelled a lot around the world for many years; Now, Klaus enjoys gardening and music - there is a piano in the house; Valerie likes cooking, especially using the garden ressources, and all kind of needlework. We can communicate in french, german, english, italian and japanese. The next railway station, Soultz-sous-Forêts, is located 5km away. Bicycl... more inside

A little garden, a little home outside a little village in the beautiful Corbieres mountains. I live practicaly always outdoors. I share my food (vegetarian), my outdoor kitchen and my living space. I buy as little as possible, growing most of what I eat myself. I believe in home made life. Homemade mayo, bread, beer (if I had enough space to bottle it) and whatever else we have the ingredients for. Do not worry you'll eat plenty. You can even eat meat and cook it if you provide it.

My outdoor house is nestled in my garden that explodes with flowers and vegetables. I can't bring myself to kill a pretty flower. Your sleeping accomodation will be in a greenhouse tent in the middle of the garden separate from the kitchen and my trailer. There is internet and a hot shower that is accesible nextdoor from my land lord.

I am not a slave driver. I mostly need a third hand in my lovely garden and someone whith a driver's licence. I have a van but no driver's licence. I want to take off... more inside

We are a busy English family of three living in rural France. We love the outdoor life and have chickens, cats, two naughty Weimeraners, three ponies and two horses. The ideal person we are looking for would be a horse loving person with a good background in general equine care, also a good basic riding ability is needed as you would need to exercise 1 horse & two ponies and take care of their daily needs. They all are ridden by our 11 year old daughter who is in the competition circuit doing Jumping, Dressage and Hunter.
Our daughter attends riding lessons at local equestrian centres twice during the week, Saturdays is training at home in our sand arena and the competitions are most Sundays so you would need to go along to the competitions to help out with the usual chaos. We are happy to provide riding lessons to improve your ability from good to great which could also involve you riding in the competitions if you wish. O.K so that's the fun part !
