We are not accepting anyone for the time being. We would prefer 2 people either a couple or friends.
Work would involve helping in the garden, mainly cutting grass, some weeding. We eventually want to create a walled garden.
No tv but live musical area available wired for sound! Musicians of any standard welcome...! Wifi. Bicycles.
We flit between the UK, France and Morocco...we, along with our then young children, spent around eight years with a German circus, previous to that we toured Europe with our kids, earning money picking fruit and busking. We love the 'on the road' buzz and would have loved to have had something like helpx to help us on our way.

We have daily contact with our lovely French neighbours, so French is obviously spoken.

Currently need help with the bed & breakfast this summer.I can only take one person (female) please.
We have lived in the Poitou Charente area of France for 16 years now and have already restored our former 15th century manor house:so we have lots of experience in restoring old houses, but desperately need help with the restoration of our current project.

Our project is a 17th century large country house in need of major restoration. All help would be appreciated,from gardening to clearing out debris in old house, restoring doors, windows etc, new ceilings, plumbing, electrics, plastering, masonry, anything really!! Great location, on edge of village with bar, shops, restaurant etc. Large park in grounds, leading on to countryside. Close to cycle path. You can use our bikes. We love to cook & entertain.

Hello and welcome to the house of straw!

You are invited to the paradise, that soon will not be anymore imaginary. Possible fields in the process of creation would be helping to create a terrace and furniture out of pallets, also building the library, help with the garden and flowers and some DIY.
We have a small pond, beehive and chickens. We usually cook meals that are gluten and lactose free.
We welcome you for a few hours a day or for a lot more! During the summer it is also possible to enjoy the festivals in Poitou. We don't have a room for helpers yet but we do have a confortable sofa.
I can pick you up at the station: Saint Maixent l'Ecole, Niort or Poitiers

Simon and I are a friendly couple who have opted out of the rat race of the SE of the UK and are now living in SW France. We have 2 rental properties one of which is quite large. We are looking for one or two helpers for the summer. Work will include preparing the gites for visitors, washing and ironing bedding etc. There is also a newly cleared area of land that we would like help doing the final clear and tidy ready for veg growing and so. We would ask helpers to work about 25 hours per week in return for accommodation and meals.
There is accommodation available in a double room with ensuite sink and WC and separate bathroom. We can cater for all dietary needs... meat and fish eaters as well as vegetarians (though vegan might be a stretch....) with good quality and varied home-cooked meals!
