As you can see from the photos, this is a beautiful, tranquil place. If you are looking to meet lots of people it will not be for you. If you are looking for peace and or a place to be creative in any way, it's perfect here. Looking for some help with practical and creative projects- someone who is physically able and innovative in their thinking, open ended stay at this moment, a time period to suit us both. Only vegetarian food available.

We are a couple on an old farm with 3 children who are 25 , 24 and 21. Marie is 57 and after a long period with farming now she's passionnated for drawing. Alain, 55, is a piano tuner and rebuilder too. Alain can speak english but Marie not at all so we prefer someone who has some french bases or who want strongly to learn french. We need some help as well as for gardening than taking care of horses, bringing back some wood , helping to build a new hen house. We offer a bedroom with single beds and food in exchange of 4-5 hours per days with two days off per week. Also we prefer non smoking people.

A virgin project in virgin territory!
In a natural parc, a gorgeous mountain setting at 1000m altitude, a stream and a source, forest and grassland with 4 barns and a cabana are the setting for a project that's just started... The project is completly off grid, There is water from the source And solar electricity.
Farm project: Honey products, medicinal plants, fruits, veggies and donkeys.
If you are interested in eco construction/renovation, preparing terraces for agriculture, permaculture landscaping, .... then you will be in the right spot... !
Loads of things to do for the enthusiasts of wild nature and mountain scenery!
Helpers need to love wild nature and have a bit pioneering spirit. There is not a lot of comfort, all is very basic... We are a bit at the end of the world so helpers must appreciate secludedness. Skilled people are very welcome as wel as unskilled, most important is motivation and willingness to learn and contribute and feeling comfortable with above cond... more inside

Due to a great response we wont need any more helpers till 2018 .Wanted Entheusiastic People To Help Create A Craft Brewery!
Also to help us transform our village house in the medieval village of Aurignac.

We are Jonathan and Miriam, a well travelled, adventurous couple, who have decided to put down our roots for the foreseeable future.

We have lived in our home for three years, with our two lovely daughters, two friendly rescue dogs and two very cuddly cats.Both the girls have now fled the nest so it's time to get stuck into our project!

We plan to turn our home into gallery space, workshop areas and accommodation for artists.
The Craft Brewery will be created in an outbuilding.
We also plan to make works of art in the garden eg. sculpture, mosaics, water features.....and would value any creative landscaping advice

There are many areas in the house that we wish to uncover/retain/restore using recycled materials and ecological products where it's possible.

Hello!

My name is Ursula, I live on a 4 hectare property with my daughter Lisa, our dog Balto and two horses Cochise and Djoura.

I am often alone and am in need of some help with the animals and in the garden.
The property is next to a beautiful forest, so for those who enjoy going for walks our house is perfect for you! I have many friends in the surrounding countryside who you will often meet, and I would love to have someone who is happy to care for the dog and horses with me. Helpers with independent spirits (and maybe a drivers license too) are the happiest here.

I also have some other friends (on different farms/ properties) who sometimes take in some of my Helpers too. Sabine, for example, has a black-pig farm near the Pyrenees. Cecile has mohair goats, and Cornelia has 10 horses, chickens, cats and dogs. There may be an opportunity for helpers to spend some time at their houses too.

To resume, the work here is mostly gardening, fencing, horsemanship (relations ... more inside

We live in a hamlet called Piques in the Midi-Pyrenées region on the border of Ariège. The nearest village called Montbrun-bocage is a great example of the hippies lifestyle of the region.
The Pyrenees are located at 70 km for those who like the hiking and you are about 2 hours drive from spain.
The hamlet includes four other families of all ages. The latest arrivals are a young couple of musicians with a little girl and we also rent our second home to a mother and her three children. Many differente and beautiful people live in the same place.

About us :
We are a small family composed of myself Christine my daughter colomba and my parents Jean and Paulette. This is my parents' house but I came back to support them because my mother has alzheimer and my father has to take care of 9 hectares of land. The land includes 4 hectares of forest, there are about hundred fruit trees and a large vegetable garden. We grow fruit and vegetables organically for our own use and follow bio... more inside

Dear lumberjacks, wood-fetisjists and forestspirits: we are looking for couples, duo's and individuals that can help us to turn our oak&chestnut forest into a permaforest/edible garden of eden.

We are living in an old barn in a forest over de Lot river. We aim to be off the grid in water (check!) and electricity (almost there..) and have future dreams of producing what we eat. To do this we have 7 hectares of forest to experiment, play, produce, live, sing and dance.

We're restoring the old apple orchard that was left by the generations before us. Also we're planting a new orchard (using permaculture principals) for generations to come. We have a little veg garden, where we try to find ways to be lazy gardeners but still have some stuff to harvest.

Tasks will be mainly outside in the forest. Cutting trees, restoring walls made with care by our ancestors, clearing land, planting trees, moving wood. Also, we definitely like to see you working your skills and creating the ... more inside
