Our small family farm is part of a typical quiet rural hamlet. We produce organic walnuts, Cameroun sheep and red label pigs. We have a renovation project in a huge "maison de maître" that belongs to the farm where we would wish to create a family and friends home where we could host upto 15 persons.The area around the farm is very beautiful with lots of places to visit.

Hi


I am an English women in her 40s renovating a farmhouse on 8 acres of land with fantastic views of the Pyrenees. I would love some help with a wide variety of jobs inside and out as another pair of hands makes a big difference.

I am particularly interested in empowering women of all ages to travel in this way and to learn to do DIY for themselves. I like to think of my home as being part learning and exchange and part retreat. It is very quiet where I live and perfect for time out to read, write, do yoga. I like to go hiking in the mountains too and you could join me with that.

Jobs vary depending on weather and, to an extent, what you are interested or skilled in but currently include:
lime plastering and repointing inside and out;
putting up a plasterboard ceilings;
plastering walls;
painting and decorating;
gardening - mostly clearing/strimming and maintenance of vegetable gardening;
Plus I have an 1960 Massey Ferguson which would welcome some tin... more inside

Our farm is 40 hectares of rolling woodland and meadow near the small town of Mirepoix, in Ariège, south-western France. We are developing our farm project and currently have 4 Galloway and 8 Casta cows. Our project involves developing a nature sanctuary on all our land which includes the cows, an orchard, recreating wildflower meadows and creating wildlife ponds and of course, showing love and respect to the original inhabitants - the deer, wild boar, buzzards, lizards and so on.

Helpers who are passionate about nature can experience a wide range of habitats including woodland, a forest-garden and orchard, wildflower meadows, wildlife ponds, a medicinal and culinary herb garden and a vegetable garden.

Our organic farm and the surrounding landscape help us come to a clearer understanding of Self and what it might truly mean to live in the Heart of Nature, our original home.

We are particularly interested in Helpers who are dedicated to exploring natural landscape of the Hea... more inside

I am looking for one or two people for a few days work, gardening, cutting down and clearing land - heavy work I cannot do myself. If you are travelling through south-west France, please stop by.

I have a beautiful house, overlooking the Lot, upriver from Cahors. This is not a place with a big group of helpers, and I don't want to be with you / look after you all the time, (although I certainly provide all food and wine, and you have your own room en suite.).There is no bar in the village, so unless you are quite happy on your own, this is better for a couple or two friends.

I run singing workshops and circle dance, so if you are musical, this is the place for you.

If you are traveling around here and don't want to work, you can stop over for 15 euros a night.

I live in south west France where I run a small BnB. In the summer I occasionally need some help with general housekeeping and looking after guests as well as some maintenance. It would also be good to have somebody to help in the garden.
I exchange for 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week you will have your own room and meals. Free unlimited WIFI available. The area is very rural with no public transport, although I am situated in a small town. It is a particularly beautiful area surrounded by vineyards.

First of all we speak in english but i'm the french one and for now i'm lazy to translate all i've written. Anyway... How to start...

Bon alors par quoi commencer...Nick et moi nous sommes installés dans une maison rustique et incroyable dans le Lot, au milieu de nulle part (pas très loin de Figeac). Des millions de projets à réaliser et coups de mains pour tous travaux extérieurs et de construction. Et si vous aimez la nature sauvage et paisible vous serez servis.
Plusieurs chantiers en cours: restauration d'un four à pain, d'une caravane, aménagement du jardin en potager, douche solaire, restauration d'une ruine en pierre sèche pour accueillir des concerts, couper du bois, etc etc etc.
On donne également des coups de main régulier à un maraîcher bio qui ne sera pas contre une paire de mains supplémentaire.
Et puis aussi on peut rien faire, c'est à dire se balader, se baigner dans un petit lavoir, explorer, boire une petite prune.
Notre objectif s'il y a un est de devenir ... more inside

I am restoring a three hundred year old farmhouse with traditional lime products. We are also restoring the vast bread oven that was originally built in 1709.

Volunteers do not typically need any particular skills, just bags of enthusiasm.

We do however need with carpentry, electrics and plumbing if you have the required skills.
