After having Helpers from all over the world at my old farm in Holland, I just moved to France with my 6 Icelandic horses, 2 dachshunds and 4 cats.
My name is Gerry and I am a Dutch woman of 51 years old, 'retired' veterinary specialist and running saddle fitting courses on academic level in The Netherlands and France. I speak Dutch, English, German and a bit French.

After a year of rebuilding this place, I could move in, but still lots of jobs to do.
So if you have real handyman skills or if you a true gardener (would like to have a small vegetable garden) then you are welcome to stay for 1 or 2 weeks (or longer if we would really get along) at my farm.

The farm is at a magical spot, on the edge of a forest on the border of Deux-Sèvres and Vendée, about 1,5 hour from La Rochelle and Poitiers airport, near the magnificent park Puy du Fou, and historical towns like Vouvant and Parthenay.

You would stay in a double bedroom with private shower in the guesthouse with possibil... more inside

Hello!

We are a couple who just moved into to a farm from the end of the 18th century with so modern additions. It has not been lived in for 3 years and we are looking for some creative and industrious people to help with renovating certain parts of the house.

We would be looking for 4-5 hours the days we work and on the off days, I would be more than willing to show you the beautiful countryside or give you a ride to the nearest train station.

Here, you would have your own room with single or double bed. We have Wi-Fi in the house.

We have two horses, two dogs, three cats and three chickens. The horses can be ridden if you have knowledge and experience.

I am an artist and healer and my partner is a doctor in the area. We tend to eat more vegetarian but have no problem with eating meat; we just don't eat much of it. We are big cheese fans though!

We have two daughters that may or may not here. You would have the opportunity to learn how to renovate a house, tak... more inside

I'm doing very little b&b now but might take a helper occasionally if you can help keep my big house tidy have very good computer skills .. website, social marketing ... or good maintenance skill.

My house is a 'maison de charme' and for work in-season you must enjoy housekeeping, changing beds, cleaning rooms and windows, have a keen eye for detail - it must be sparkling and well presented at all times. You will need to get up early some mornings to make breakfast, and may be asked to house sit and to greet guests when I go out. There is a small perfumed garden to be watered and tidied and any additional practical/DIY maintenance/decorative skills can be put to good use. Learn a bit of decorative art - DIY or computer skills useful.

Preference will be given for helpers with some relevant experience and conversational French or Spanish, both for the work and to enable you to enjoy village life.

Room and work for one person only - a partner with additional useful s... more inside

Hi everybody!
We are a young couple, Freddy (28) and I, Clara (27).
We were Helpers before, we spent one year in New Zealand, travelling all around the country helping people, now we are back in France, we live in a big house and want to welcome travellers, its our turn :)

Jobs for us will be easy, 3 hours a day gardening, job painting and/or cleaning. The most important for us is to meet foreigners in a very sympatic way.
We both work, Freddy is at home most of the time he will be able to help you organise yourselves but we will share moment with you mostly during the evening or the week-end. So we would love independent helpers, the best would be two persons, friends or couple who can organise themselves (working on the morning, going out the afternoon). Very important: you need to have a car.

Our house is situated half an hour from Nantes, half an hour from the sea (Pornic is the closest and the best place to go to the beach).

We would love to welcome you for one o... more inside

Renovation of an old house in a small village near Limoux, south of France.

I live 3km far from the house we renovate with my family: so we are a couple with two children (12 and 4 years old) and one cat.
We offer to host you (bed and food - 3 meals / day) in exchange to help us on the building.
We've already done lots of work (roof, wall's frame, etc.), by ourselves and with professionals (I'm running a carpentry enterprise). Now we'd like to share the training with mud... That means kind of cob on the rock walls, and mix of straw and mud for the walls inside.

The idea is to make kind of training session:
You are welcome to help us and we're making you comfortable; my business (me and / or employee) guide the project to make sure that everything is going on the right way for the technical aspect.

NB : We use now the website TWIZA.fr to take the reservation to our session. Please contact us by this way.
