We are an english couple running a restaurant/auberge in this beautiful part of France for nearly 8 years. We are always looking for an extra pair of willing hands to help with the garden, building maintenance and general upkeep.
We are situated in a small village set in the heart of beautiful countryside in the Deux Sevres region.
Ideally suited to people who are willing and happy to work on their own or a couple. Having your own transport would be a major advantage as there are no local services.
If you have a trade i.e. painting/gardening etc. that would be a real advantage.
In return we offer you a private bedroom with bathroom en-suite and 3 meals a day.
We have a good WiFi service so you will have no problem with keeping in touch with friends and family.
Please have a look at our website and if you would like any more details of have any more questions please drop us a line.

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!

We are a Dutch Family living in France!
We live on a milk farm of 65 ha., so there's a lot of space :-) We have cows, ponies (the kids can ride on them with a little help), a donkey, 4 dogs and a cat. Our farm is just 500 mts away from the rn 141. On this road you drive 6 km left or right to a small town. Bigger cities are St. Junien (~20 mins), Limoges (~45 mins), Angoulème (~30 mins), Bordeaux (2.5 hours~) and Paris (~4 hours)

(Estimated timings by car)

We have 3 kids: Périne from 9, Isabella from 6 and Marc is 4
The kids speak fluent French and Dutch; they are learning/picking up English from others (English-speaking friends of the family). I (mama) speak fluent French, English, German and Dutch. My husband speaks French, Dutch and English fluently.





Dear volunteers,

As our farm and our children are very laborious, we are almost always looking for extra hands!
Of these extra hands we hope that they are able to work independently, own make decisions,without s... more inside

A friendly couple with a teenage daughter, living and working (see our website) from home in a village location in between Châtellerault (a decent sized town on the Vienne with all the usual shops and facilities that you would expect to find in a town) and Richelieu, a small but historically significant town where you can relax with a cold drink in the square or wander the park where the Cardinal used to have his château.

We can accommodate either a single person or a couple in a newly-renovated ground floor bedroom, and are looking for help with the garden (nothing requiring any expert skill or knowledge) and also repairing and rebuilding various stone walls about the place amongst other things.

The house itself is non-smoking, though there is covered outdoor space if needed. We enjoy our food, and although we eat most things, I would be happy to cater for any special dietary requirements so long as they are pointed out in advance. We don't really drink so if alcohol is an es... more inside
