Tucked away in the heart of the beautiful French countryside we are an Irish/French couple who are converting our old 300+ house. We have the main house completed but still need help with decoration (painting, wallpapering etc), some mason/building/carpentry and also help in the gardens. Due to this nature of work the house often finds itself dusty so housekeeping is also something we are looking for.

We are located close to Bayeux and within driving distance to the Normandy beaches, we are a peaceful location and its ideal for anyone looking for a real sense of rural Normandy. Our house is a real stay in history, having being built in 1711 as a Presbytery, then becoming the village school from the late 1700's to WWII when it became a German headquarters, it was liberated by the US 2nd Infantry Division and was restored again as a village school until the beginning of the 1960's when it closed its doors forever... many ghosts run through this old building.

My partner and I are carefully transforming our Gascon manor house and surrounds into a holistic retreat offering complementary therapies. We are very pro-active ourselves and will be working alongside you. We've been spending time in this part of France for over twenty years and we're passionate about restoring our estate to its former glory, complete with healing gardens that we'd hope to share with visiting workshop participants, etc. Work involves clearing large areas of scrubland, gardening/weeding and help with refining the property and adding some features to the grounds. It would suit somebody who enjoys satisfying but hard work in the open air and beautiful surrounds of the Gers region. There is a small town with bars, restaurants and shops about 5km away and the area is superb for walking and cycling - there are some bikes here if required.

We live in the midst of the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy in an ex-dairy farm. We've renovated several of the buildings and we're still working on our house. Mainly we're looking for someone to help take care of garden, grounds, possibly to help with renovation projects. If you've got building skills, that's a real plus. You might also be asked to walk the dogs or cook a meal or clean. We're pretty flexible and hope you will be too. We are rural, so it's best if you have your own vehicle. It would be really good to have a couple or a pair of friends.

You'll have a 2-bedroom nicely-renovated cottage to stay in. It has wi-fi and TV and is very comfortable. There's a kitchen in the cottage, so you can cook for yourself or you can eat/cook with us. I am a teacher and my husband is "retired," which means he is working full-time on our project. We have a son who is studying agriculture, and a passel of animals.

Bonjour à toutes et à tous !

Après une année à bourlinguer ma carapace à travers les Amériques avec ma petite amie, nous voilà posés dans une ferme où nous construisons jour après jour notre petit paradis.

LE COUP DE MAIN
Au programme : élevage de brebis et remise en état de la ferme. Si vous souhaitez venir amener votre pierre à l'édifice, les tâches auxquelles vous participerez pourront être amener le grain aux brebis, leur faire faire la "transhumance" dans le village pour se rendre d'une parcelle à l'autre, participer aux chantiers clôtures ou bois de chauffage. Il y aura aussi dès cet été des travaux à réaliser dans la maison pour améliorer cette vieille bâtisse, et du jardinage pour servir de beaux légumes à table.

HORAIRES
Vous travaillerez 5 heures par jour, 5 jours par semaine, mais seulement le matin (8h30-13h30). Comme ça, vous pouvez faire ce que vous voulez durant l'après-midi, et nous on peut prendre du temps pour s'organiser. Bien sûr, en échange de votr... more inside

We are a couple who are experienced gite owner managers now renovating a small fishing cottage just 500 metres from Lake Guerledan. You will be staying not far away at our gite complex in South Morbihan in a superb location. You can either work one day on one day off, or 3 days on 4 days off. This is a great opportunity for the right person or 2 people. If you're a couple one of you can take it a bit easier simply tending the grounds with Sally while the other would help Irvin at the separate cottage. Looking for people with previous general build work experience. You could be a carpenter, bricklayer or plasterer, or know how to plasterboard out (see upstairs photo ready for boarding out) It's not a difficult job, but quite time consuming as it'll be tricky scribing some of the panels.... or be competent in one or more of those disciplines.. One of you may be a keen gardener?

From April to October we generally dine outside and you're more than welcome to join us, or cook for yo... more inside

We are an anglo-french couple building an ecological (straw bale and earth and straw) house for our family in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We live in an 'eco-hamlet' of five houses, at the moment we are currently living in a barn space which we built ourselves, learning the techniques we are now using to build the house. We have been hosting large groups of helpers over several years and it has been an enriching experience all round. This year we will be needing help to do the last coat of rendering interior and exterior, and the floors (a mix of earth lime and cow dung). We are hoping to move into the house before the end of the year. This project provides an apprenticeship in low cost building techniques, and beautiful countryside to explore in your time off. We expect 5 hours work a day in exchange for meals and accommodation (caravan, tipi, outdoor shower, compost toilet). There a places to put up tents or park vans. Our ideal helpers have a genuine desire to learn about ecobu... more inside
