********** June2016 update ********
received bad review from strange helper... Just look our others reviews to make your own opinion... A HELPER WOULD BE WELCOME IN OCTOBER NOVEMBER FOR GARDENING AND PAINTING.
***********************************************

Located on the south-west coast of France, we own an old farm . We (Daniel and Patricia) will host you in a convivial atmosphere for two ,three weeks minimum.
Our English is not fluent (we are a french couple) so we'd expect you to try and speak French as often as you can, our English being here to help you in cases. You would notice that we do love animals as on the property are: cats, great danes, jack-russels, 3 horses, donkeys, chickens, pigeons (and sorry for the ones I'd have forgotten).
We offer a bedroom with 1 kingsize bed wireless access and your own TV. There is also a bike that you can borrow in the afternoons and discover the surrounds.

3 meals a day provided (Vegetarians, please read bellow) and a nice gl... more inside

Geraldine and Richard have owned and run a centre for health and healing on Mount Tamborine, Queensland Australia for nearly 20 years. We are in the process of building a similar centre in the Languedoc South of France where we need help with light building and gardening. Accommodation is indoors with showers and hot water.
Where possible we use sustainable and 'green' building techniques.
The use of random (uncut) stone and lime mortar has minimal
and even positive effects on the environment.
We ensure that the timber used is either sustainably grown or recycled.
Our aim is to create a space where groups can come to learn a range of creative, experiential and spiritual activities in a safe and peaceful environment.
We will welcome people of all nationalities, faiths and spiritual beliefs to share this facility.
Subjects which we hope to encourage will include; yoga,art,dance, astrology, meditation and healing.
At present we are looking particularly for people with plumbin... more inside

Dear Helper,
Welcome to La Vermilliere!

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 (La Vermillière) 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 appropriated answer, please read the entire description, and when you contact us, answer to the question 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 ... more inside

Only native English speaker please!

We have a property located in the middle of Provence where we are taking care of a vacation rental, which of course occupies us a good part of the year:

Out season we continue to prepare our cottages and during summer time we receive our vacationers.
We have a lot of things to do, so unfortunately, we are unable to travel!

So the deal is: a studio and food (in your accomodation or with us), against :
- some help in the accommodations or in cooking,
- spending some ... more inside
