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

We are a NZ couple who bought an old stone farm house (600 sqm) on 25 acres in the SW of France.
We have both inside and outside projects which we are looking for help with. The tradesmen now come in approx March/April to finish the bulk of the work on the main house and then we can finish and furnish.
There is gardening and landscaping work. We have cleared the last of the blackberry and scrub and started to create spaces around the house ready to create a beautiful garden. Our current project over winter is fencing to keep the deer out. Then we would like pergolas, paths and walkways. We have all the tools needed including a tractor and mini digger.
In return we can offer you the experience of living in a very beautiful region of France. The house is surrounded by fields of either wheat or sunflowers, we are 2 kms from our local village which has all amenities, 20 kms from the nearest large town and an hours drive west of Toulouse in the Gers region.
