We are a retired couple who have lived in France for over 10 years and we live in a small village in rural South West France between Poitiers and Niort. As we are not as able to do some of the work as easily as we used to, we could do with help with a couple of projects over the next couple of years. We are an amenable and very relaxed couple who have no prejudices and are slightly left of centre in our views whilst respecting everyone's right to have a viewpoint.
This autumn (2015) we could do with help in general garden maintenance ie cutting trees, trimming hedges etc. Preparing our veg plots for next year and a couple of small projects such as rainwater gathering. (involves a bit of pipework). Next year we would like to finish our garage and build a verandah money permitting.
We enjoy gardening/growing veg/and generally relaxing with a glass of wine or beer. we are originally from the North West of England and so we like plain, nourishing food and we are pretty plain spoken t... more inside

Hello, Michel and I are 54 years old, we project to work with you in our garden from October 8th to 28th.
We welcome you to help us plant 5-7 trees (almond trees and olive trees), dig the holes, carry the compost and manure in the vegetables garden, move the ground...and rebuild some traditional ston walls to support the garden levels.

In Provence we have gardens designed as "Restanques": our garden is composed of 8 small levels (terraces).

In 2-3 weeks, during our holidays from october 8th to 21/28th, we hope we will together be able to improve the ground.

During your stay, you'll help us by:
- digging holes for planting fruit trees
- carry compost and manure to fertilize the soil for next spring
- clean up areas of the garden, remove wild grass and trees, roots, rocks
- add manure and prepare the permaculture garden, and start designing it for next spring.

We live 5km away from Aix en Provence, very close to the Mount Sainte Victoire. We have one bedroom for you... more inside

I'm looking for helpers to help renovate a cottage here. Nick the current helpx would love the help and the company! We're a large old farm, which isn't really farmed anymore. We have agricultural land, a plum orchard and a vinyard as well as the area allotted to the garden. The main house is let out in high season, and the rest of the year we get the odd bed & breakfast. It's a huge place with loads of potential - and basically I need all the help I can get. We have great parties here in season - there is the walled garden - then there is the barn area which is now a venue - then there's the land! A lot has been done in the last 7 years - but there's still a long way to go! I've got the vision - I'm hoping to find people who will also come and have that same passion - it's that sort of place! Everyone who comes always wants to come back!

We have many different things that need doing - from renovation of the buildings to veg growing and gardening, painting, even cutting gr... more inside

We live in a beautiful, traditional 'longere' in the Pays de la Loire, with a bright & airy, two bedroom Gite attached to our house for our helpxers to stay in. There's WiFi available or, if you haven't got a device, you can access the Internet on our office computer. We have a small project music studio attached to our property too.

Our home is in a beautiful rural area, but is only 2km from the nearby town of Gorron, so it's an easy & pretty walk or bike ride away.

Our aim here is to live by Permacultural principles and have created lots of different habitats for our wild friends. We grow our own vegetables and fruit and we also raise some free range poultry for the table and for eggs and have two cats whose job is to be naughty!

We are looking for people to give help with our newly planted woodland - bramble busters are always needed - ditch clearing, compost making or whatever is pressing at that time. We think sustainable living is very important and 'waste' is... more inside

Sorry folks we aren't looking at any help for 2015, well so far anyways. If we do at any point in time we'll update our profile.

We run a tour company based in Alberta, Canada and operating in Aveyron, south west of France. This is a husband-wife operation where Christian (husband) has a full-time career in Canada and Veronique delivers the tours. It's quite unique as the tours are hosted in her house and guided by Veronique.
To know more about Aveyron, what we do, etc. check our website. There are photos, videos, and lots of stories.
Anyhow we're looking for a helper for the month of June 2014 who could provide no more than a couple hours of light housekeeping a day.
In exchange we provide the accommodation (check our website for photos) and the use of our personal car as Veronique is touring our guests with another vehicle.
So, this is a full French immersion in a region where wine, food (Roquefort), history and heritage (Conques, Millau viaduct) are part of daily lives.

Our names are John, Siriluck and Tom our 5 year old son.
We are trying to create a wonderful environment in which to live.
https://vimeo.com/138128782
Our first priority is to build our family home and we're looking for help to build it. The house is well advanced now and we will be doing the internal rendering from 20 July.No special building knowledge needed. (don't worry, I'll be on site and the buck stops with me).
Sometimes there is some work to be done in the wood.
We provide a caravan for accommodation and good food. You will also be sharing our Yurt with us, especially at meal times. We ask 5 hours a day for 5 days every week.
The house, to our knowledge, is the first Cob build in the South of France. It's actually a hybrid with load bearing Straw Bales on the North wall. 50 cm thick cob walls, bioclimatic greenhouse, lime/acacia foundations, natural stone plinth, lime and earth renders, rocket stove, self-build solar panels.
At the time of writing we are busy C... more inside
