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

Hi - we're Martin and Jane, and we own a group of old farm cottages just outside the lovely market town of Civray in South West France. Three of the cottages are rented out as gites and we live in the main farmhouse with our 15 year old daughter Amelie, our beautiful golden retrievers Sophie and Fleur, cats Minou, Thao and Loulou and 11 chickens....

We've been renovating, updating and maintaining the gites and grounds (and our own farmhouse when we get time!) since we moved here nearly 7 years ago, and we'd love some enthusiastic help over the winter months, mostly in the garden as well as some general decorating.

In return we can offer you a beautiful self contained and fully equipped cottage (L'Ecurie - you can see lots of photos on our website) which sleeps 2 (a double bed). We provide breakfast, light lunch and evening meals (lots of good home cooking), a very flexible work schedule, time to yourself and a relaxed, caring and fun family atmosphere (English speaking - al... more inside

*** UPDATE: THANK YOU, ALL, I have found the Helpxers I need from now until March. When I get back from South America in May, I will probably be looking for Helpers to help me with continuing my acquisition of Spanish, so if you are looking for an opportunity in late May/June 2018, please drop me a note. Muchas gracias!

Welcome to the île d'Oléron! Here in a seaside village, on the north-western shore of this 30 km x 12 km island, I live in a house that I designed and in many respects built myself. Lots of light and space, and a big, somewhat wild garden.

I am looking for solo helpers (sorry, but non-smokers only, please, and no pets or drugs) who would be willing to help me learn beginning Spanish. Stays of two weeks or longer would be ideal, providing everyone feels comfortable. (A good HelpX situation fits the needs of both helper and host!)

About 3 hours of Spanish, plus an hour of upkeep work in the garden (for the fun of getting our hands dirty) per da... more inside

Hello! We are looking for a helper for October. A great variety of tasks at hand: interior decoration, barn conversion, garden, landscaping, paint jobs, carpentry...We are also looking for people who like to spend a little time with children! So the choice of what you do will also be yours!

Hello there! We are a German/French family living in a beautiful farmhouse near the medieval city of Poitiers. We are close to many attractions: 15 minutes from the Vallée des Singes (a huge park with monkey running free), 1 hour from La Rochelle and the seaside, and 30 minutes from the famous Futuroscope, ... Our plan for next year is to start an organic garden project (permaculture), and to renovate some of the buildings to host artistic workshops.

********** 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
