We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.
However we now have a brand new project in renovating an old bar/restaurant in the village ( Helen already runs the existing one and wants to eventually move into the bigger premises)
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property that is over 9 metres circumference and is in guide books as an 'arbre remarquable'.
The new property in the village is a huge project, with an existing bar, shop and appartment to clean up and redecorate, then there's the ballroom behind where we plan to install new toilets and kitchen area.

We will... 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

Hiya Helpers, Greetings from SW France. We are seeking 1 or 2 people to stay during the last two weeks of October to help us 'put the garden to bed' (maybe tidying and cleaning in the house if it rains!) We can offer a warm and friendly welcome with great food, lovely location, excellent accommodation, pleasant socialising and 4 gorgeous cats. We need help in the garden and we have a few maintenance jobs or a couple of projects for someone who's handy with DIY. So we'd welcome a couple where one can garden and the other can use their DIY-type skills. But a single gardener is fine. Weeding, strimming, mowing, raking, planting, staking, pruning etc.

We live in a big house at the end of a no-through road, among Bordeaux vines - lovely and tranquil with little traffic to disturb our 4 cats! We have an indoor heated pool so you can swim whenever you like, day or night.

Mel is a great cook; apart from International cuisine, he can do Chinese, Indian, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Mal... more inside
