Bonjour,

J'habite dans un grand pavillon avec jardin, situé entre Melun et Fontainebleau à 35 minutes en transport de Paris (via le train). J'aime voyager, aller danser, je pratique l'aviron et le vtt, le yoga... et je me suis lancée dans la permaculture depuis maintenant 2 ans. J'ai un chat et deux poules.

Je mets une ou deux chambres à disposition contre des travaux de jardinage, de décoration, bricolage, rangement, nettoyage, etc... Mon objectif est de rendre ma maison plus accueillante! Si vous avez des compétences spéciales, n'hésitez pas à m'en faire part que je puisse m'organiser.

En contre partie, je propose la découverte de la région (randonnées dans la forêt de Fontainebleau, visite de Barbizon, château de Fontainebleau, etc). L'endroit est idéal pour visiter la capitale, Paris.

Je ne cuisine pas tous les jours, mais vous aurez la cuisine à disposition, et le petit déjeuner servi chaque matin ; de temps à autres je vous ferais un plat régional.

Je parle un... more inside

I live a basic self sufficient lifestyle isolated in a forest on the French countryside. I take care of my own food and breed animals for the meat. Not all the way, a supermarket is still part of the foodchain. I started my current lifestyle many years ago with a partner and am continuing the back to nature experience on my own. Living here brings energy and connection to nature and ourself.

I am looking for help in all the things that are part of my daily routine on my place, in my house and around in the forest. If you have a talent for cooking that would be very welcome, please share your knowledge to make me enjoy cooking more. Apart from that your hands and body are welcome for harvesting and preparing vegetables. For chopping firewood together with me (autumn and winter). Clean and maintain to keep everything in good function. To help me with repairs and construct new ideas. To take care of the animals etc. But also you as a person are welcome to communicate and exchange wi... more inside

Looking for someone to come and help on our smallholding, we have lots of renovation work underway, but primarily want someone to help with our 4 horses and 4 dogs. No horse experience necessary as they are all very easy to do.

I have recently had an operation and unable to do any lifting/carrying so need an extra pair of hands while my partner is away. But also looking for someone longer term who can help with projects here.

Plenty of free time for sightseeing. We live on the edge of forestry with endless trails for walking/cycling/riding.

We are very rural not near public transport so own transport would be recommended.

Someone with easy going nature, just willing to muck in when needed and just relax when not!

Own newly renovated apartment, internet access available.

We are two writers who live in an old cottage on the edge of a small ridgetop village within half an hour's drive of the Pyrenees. Our lifestyle is as eco as we can make it. We are looking for help with gardening work, wood cutting, decorating, furniture painting, organising our two workshops as well as some general help in the house. We are ovo-vegetarian and eat predominately organic food. The atmosphere is informal, creative and laid-back. Originally from the UK, we both speak French and Leaf is fluent in Spanish, Sue has some German.

*** Update April 2018 *** Spring is here and we need help in the garden, preparing the gites and building work. Also our dog Lily needs taking for a walk! *****

Me and Helen are an English couple in our 50s living in Le Moulin, a renovated 18th century watermill near Carcassonne in the south of France.
Over the past 10 years we have renovated the building, built three gites, a swimming pool, started a gite rental business and a small English language school catering mainly for local children.
We have about two acres of land which, bit by bit, we are transforming into a garden.
We have a lot of ideas about how to take the project forward so the building and garden work are ongoing.
However it is a lot of work so we need a bit of help!
We were thinking that a single person or couple could stay in our spare bedroom or one of our gites with food and utilities provided by us in exchange for about 25 hours work a week per person.
The work would be mainly gardening, building and... more inside

NEXT AVAILABILITY: Anytime between 20 April and 14 May.
Martin and I are retired but very active. I was a teacher and ran a business, Martin was a builder and it's largely thanks to him that most of our old farm buildings here have been sensitively renovated in the local style. We live just to the north of Bergerac and have over a hectare of land with a few goats, a few hens, a vegetable garden, more fruit and walnut trees than we need, and we run a couple of popular holiday properties on the site. I speak good French although the main language in the house is English.

We really appreciate an extra hand from willing guests from time to time,and the chance to make new friends, hear new perspectives,and share stories round our table.

Although we are in a rural location, the lovely town of Bergerac is 5 minutes by car, with lots of things going on there as well as train and bus links if you want to explore further afield. There are a couple of bikes available, and we are alwa... more inside
