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,

Of these extra hands we hope that they are able to work independently, own make decisions,without s... more inside

I live in the Charente, France, in a very pretty hamlet. My home is a lovely barn conversion overlooking fields which seasonally change and in the summer are full of sunflowers. Anyone staying here would need a vehicle as there is no public transport. I am about an hour and a half from the sea and there are many pretty historical villages to visit. I have two dogs, an Alsatian and an Irish terrier (terrorist), she may be small but is the boss. There are also a couple of small ponds with fish and frogs in them. It is very tranquil here and lovely in the summer to sit on the terrace at night looking at the stars. WIFI, UK tv and free landline phone calls to Europe. I would love help to look after the dogs and garden for a month in May/June and also 2-3 weeks in October. I have just moved here so would like help with the garden and proposed vegetable plot. As you can imagine it is new to me so I have loads of plans which hopefully will be well underway when you arrive. The gar... 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

I live in a small village in the East Charente, SW France and need help with general maintenance. All sorts of handyperson work is needed - especially sorting out the front of the house so it has a bit more kerb appeal to help me sell it. It needs painting and fencing and something doing to tidy up the ground where I've had a huge tree taken out. The garden could do with something doing with it too. Inside I need painting done and plumbing (fit a shower and loo upstairs).

I also have a house in the Dordogne which I am preparing to move to. I need help there with gardening, inside painting/decorating and general stuff like fitting a bath panel, building a cupboard around my newly installed chauffe-eau. I also have some large bakery equipment to remove so I can use the space it's currently taking up. There is even a little house next door which needs everything from a new roof down so any skills would come in handy somewhere, I'm sure.

How many I can accommodate and... more inside

(English or spanish speakers prefered as we want to improve our foreign languages)

We are a family of four (we have two children, Anaïs who is 20yo and Colas who is 18yo), living in a very small village 3km away from St Georges de Didonne Beach,just next to Royan (quite famous touristic area). It is situated on the west coast (1h north of Bordeaux).

We have bikes you can use to go where you want. It takes approximatively 10 minutes to go to the beach and between 15 and 20 minutes to go to Royan by bike and there are a lot of bike paths along the beach.

We only require someone to stay at home during the 2 last weeks of August, as we will be out of home these days. Anaïs and Colas will need help to feed the animals (2 goats, 5 laying hens, 3 cats, 1 dog and 2 horses)twice a day, watering the garden and do a... more inside
