I am an English woman living alone(although I have family living near by) in the French countryside in the Charente region. I have been renovating my property a stone house built in the 1830's and running a small restaurant at my home for the last 4 years.

I am urgently in need of helpers who would enjoy a challenge and the experience of this unique environment.You would stay in your own room either for a couple of weeks or longer living in the french countryside.

If you would just like the opportunity to experience a unique Jamaican extravaganza in the heart of the french countryside .....all skills would be welcomed!!
In return for 20/25 hours per week you will be fed very well(as it is a restaurant specialising in Jamaican food) and have a room in the main house sharing amenities with myself and my friendly dog. The area is very picturesque with Angouleme (the nearest city) 25mins drive.

We are looking for some helpers to assist us on a temporary basis, with keeping renovations of a gite and/or landscaping and general work in our garden. We would love to start a vegetable plot.

It would be great if volunteers had some of the following skills - plasterboarding, wall building, fencing, gardening, joinery, plumbing, electrics, cleaning, equestrian etc.

If volunteers had experience with landscaping, we have lots of scope.

You would have own use of a 2 bedroom gite with lovely views. We have a main house, furnished gite and gite to renovate, plus barns. We are situated in a rural area, on a no through road. About 5kms from us is the beautiful village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne which has restaurants, bars, a river beach with cafe, canoeing, campsite and everyday shops and facilities. We have 5 cats, wandering chickens and soon to add a dog and pony to the family. We are a family of 5 - our eldest lives away at University, our middle son is 18 and daughter 13.

It's a small bungalow / chalet in a quiet location, 2 kilometres outside Aulnay, in Western France, set on a wooded hill with incredible views.My home is small but comfortable & warm, an adult and one child would be OK, I'm afraid I have nowhere to accommodate pets, I would share & cook food in return for help around the place. I'm an artist and who knows you could be the perfect subject / model.The beautiful medieval village of Aulnay is on the Camino route south to Santiago de Compastella with all the facilities you'll need and can be walked to from the chalet in 20 minutes.
I'm sure if your looking for 'peace & quiet'this is the place.

Very small and rural homestead/smallholding with a large vegetable garden and small orchard and an assortment of outbuildings and annexes in various states of repair. I've been living here since 2010 with a couple of dogs, a couple of cats, a few chickens and a whole lot of homegrown produce. I need help (25 hours a week to be covered how you like) with general gardening duties - absolutely no experience necessary - keeping the small vineyard (150 vines) under control, picking fruit, weeding, mowing, digging, planting - whatever seasonal tasks are on the agenda. It could be pruning one week and picking cherries the next, or digging up carrots or planting a herb garden. It's very diverse! There's also a lot to be done on the house, including simple stuff like painting right the way through to helping me gut and refurbish the kitchen and bathroom. I have electric, but no television. The internet connection is superb, but in summer, the only reason to come inside is to escape the heat... more inside
