Helpers wanted 2018.From now till end march.

We are a British couple Bill & Lin and live in the beautiful Poitou Charente region of France, with our dog. We accept helpers for a week or two at a time.
Bill is a retired plumber and builder, we are renovating an old stone house and barn in a small, quiet, rural hamlet in the beautiful Vienne, close to Lusignan, south west France.

We are about 30 minutes from Poitiers, futuroscope,Saint Maixent and Melle there are plenty of monuments, churches etc within a short drive.

Extra pairs of hands to help out would be great. Most has been done, but there is still a little to do. We accept enthusiastic or experienced helpers.

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
