retired Scottish civil engineer requires assistance to sail dutch barge from St Jean De Losne (near Dijon) down the rivers Saone and Rhone to the south of France. Will stop at all main towns and cities along the way with ample time for sight seeing and exploring the local countryside. On reaching the coast we will then continue up the famous Canal de Midi and on to Bordeaux.
I expect to take 2 months (June / august) but longer if required.
A handy and reasonably fit person, general duties,to include helping to steer the barge on certain stages, some painting, carpentry and plumbing work and a mountain bike is available, along with various guitars if required, non smoker, free food and accommodation. Own small cabin, shared toilet and shower. Deck space for relaxing, and eating.
The trip would be ideal for a photographer, painter, naturalist, and as, at times, very peaceful, perfect for writing and studying.
If any more details required please email

Pépinière d'exception dans le Comminges, au pied des Pyrénées. Loin des cultures industrielles, il s'agit ici de produire les plantes à la main, avec du temps et de la patience. Spécialisé en paysages miniatures et bonsaïs, je suis un des rares pépiniériste-collectionneur à travailler en permaculture en France. Actuellement, je cultive 3000 variétés et couvre trois climats (trois serres). La pépinière est adossée à une belle bâtisse datant de 1709 et se situe dans un cadre calme et préservé. Sur un terrain de 12 hectares, prairies et bois où paissent une dizaine de brebis, un âne, un poney et une mule. Également quelques arbres fruitiers, un potager et un poulailler avec oies, canards et poules. Contre un coup de main à la pépinière (bouturage, rempotage, création) et à la ferme (entretien des cultures, des animaux, des bâtiments, etc.), je partage mes connaissances sur les variétés que je cultive depuis 30 ans et vous fais découvrir la région. Ambiance assurée. Notez que le plus gr... more inside

We are Enid and Kevin, a very active couple in our 60s. We are British but have lived here in SW France for 13 years.We have restored an 18th century farmhouse on a hectare of land. We are establishing a permaculture garden and taming the land which has been left idle for many years. We have chickens and two dogs. This is our second property in this village. We sold the last one after 10 years running holiday cottages and had lots of helpxers working with us on that project (no reviews I'm afraid as we have a new e mail so had to create a new account.) We need someone to help with cutting bamboo, fencing in the veg plot and the chicken area, building compost bins and general garden work. You would work 4/5 hours per day for 5 days and then have 2 days off. Work is mainly mornings but some time in the afternoon too - we like to take a long lunch (we're a bit French that way!)! You would have indoor accommodation - we have a twin room or a double room and you would have your own bat... more inside

Beautiful chateau situated in the cote de Blaye vineyards, close to St Emillion and Bordeaux. We are an English family that consists of mother, daughter and 4 children so if you want to learn
French we are possibly not for you. Our project which we are just about to start is a serious building renovation-garden project and we would really like a person or a couple who can just get stuck in and work hard along with us and do whatever is needed that day. Although we work hard we also like to play hard. Happy to have you for a few weeks or more. We will give you your own room and food.

Hello! I live in South Burgundy near the Morvan, in a small village. I welcome you happy for a few days. You can enjoy my guest bedroom with bathroom. We may share friendly moments at the fireplace if it is cold or around a barbecue if the weather permits. For meals, everyone is doing and my kitchen is always open. I speak French, I do not speak English, but you can always get to understand each other. In exchange, I'll ask you about the work in the garden, or cleaning the house, or DIY to maintain the house, and especially you will care Kyo my dog who loves caresses and long walks. See you soon!

We (Babette & Leon) grow vegetables on +/- 0.7ha the organic way but we do not yet have the organic certificate. We have a 2 year old son and a baby on the way. We also have a really sweet dog an some chicken.
We speak Dutch, French, English and German.
We are looking for people (a couple) who would like to help us in the garden (weeding, harvesting sowing etc.) and maybe sometimes an evening market.
We would like you to work +/- 5 hours a day (7.00 to 12.00) 5 day

It would be nice if you could stay for 2 weeks minimum

In return we have a caravan in the garden were you could stay in (or bring your own tent..)and plenty of fresh vegetables and eggs.
It would be handy if you come with a car or don’t mind riding a bike hill up and down.
We don’t have internet access at home so we can reply e-mails only once a week.

Hi, we are a big family leaving in the country side. We have a lot of animals such as horses, dogs, cats and pigs. We are leaving in a little place at an altitude of 1000m. We only speak french, but our kids are studying english and spanish at school and we'd love them to improve, so you are welcome even if you speak another language. The only must here is liking kids and animals !!! If you don't speak french you can still send us a email in english (one of my daughter is leaving overseas and she can translate it for me) but you ll have to know that we won't be able to talk to you in another language than french once you ll be here.
Work : Painting, cleaning the house, baby-sitting, gardening, general maintenance, help with fire woods, cooking... We usually ask for 25h a week, I'm really easy about the way we can spread it : 5h a day, 5 days a week, or more hours per day and then more days off....it's up to you..

You ll have a private room with double bed and all meals included.... more inside
