We are restoring a fabulous castle with 365 windows that still badly need TLC : putty, linseed oil, varnish... April, May, June, September, October are usually fine. July and August are not a time when works can be done at the chateau as visitors are around.
We would be very glad to welcome one or two people who are fond of old places and heritage. There are lots of other things that need doing as well. If you like refurbishing, if you are good at clearing up, carpentering, plumbering or gardening... you'll have lots to keep you busy !
We live in the South West of France, the Dordogne, in an area where there is lots to visit and enjoy.
We don't actually live in the chateau (so there is some travelling involved) but in town which is nice because Périgueux is a lovely little city right in the center of the Dordogne.
You will be able to share our family life with our teenage daughter. We often have our children and grand-children during the holidays.
We speak both French & En... more inside

Chambres d'hôtes and small holding in the Ariège, Pyrénées, France, we're getting on with it and living the life.......want to help !?

We are looking for helpers for '2 week' slots for July 2018. A COUPLE or 2 FRIENDS, we are asking 5hrs / day (9am - 2pm) ..... 5 days / week.... (2 days & afternoons free = go and explore)

A little bit about us first.......

Kev and I moved to the Ariège, SW France in 2005 and bought an old stone sheep barn. After 4 years renovating, with volunteers for the final two years, we opened in 2010 what is now a successful but small chambre et tables d'hôte business / bed and breakfast, serving dinner with home grown and home reared and local produce.

Kev is a gardener and I am a self trained cook, so with our combined interests, knowledge and talents, we grow our own 'bio' produce and raise Gascon pigs for meat and chickens for eggs. From our produce we create and serve evening dinners, jams, chutneys and pickles to our guests during the year... more inside

We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in production. We practice permaculture and the olives are part of a 'forest garden' which also includes 200 cork oaks, carob & other trees & shrubs. We also have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, dogs, cats, a house pig, donkeys, bees and worms!. Living in a Mediterranean climate we practice several different methods of water recycling & have a biological swimming pool. Help is required with all aspects of a compassionate, sustainable lifestyle.
Meals are vegan, wine is served with the evening meal and we are non smoking. Current projects are general forestry & garden management, spring planting, plus various indoor projects for bad weather.
Normally up to 4 helpers are here at a time, living as part of a family style community. We ask a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, with longer stays very much preferred. People usually book a few weeks ahead, but we sometimes have last minutes vacancies.

Our farmhouse from 1680 is situated on a hill top next to a forest on 9 Acres. We are setting up the property in a permaculture way; organic, raised beds, a crater-garden and a food forest. We are waiting for the permit to start a permaculture camping with some cabins and tree-houses. We are restoring the house in the traditional/green way, use reclaimed oak and chestnut beams and carved stones from an old ruin and work with lime, stone, clay and insulation from natural materials. We will make a greenhouse, chicken pen, pony stable, swimming pond and a petting zoo. We love our work, vegetarian food, and jamming around the camp-fire. Activities include: green building, organic vegetable garden, and forestry. We are a family with two small children and we enjoy our time with volunteers!
Recreation: Pyrenees mountains, ocean beach, swimming in a river.
We speak French, English, Dutch, German and some Italian.

I am an active Couchsurfing member who found out about helpx thanks to a couchsurfer I hosted. Some of my couchsurfers ended up staying longer than the usual 1 or 2 days and since the experience was great, I joined helpx in order to host for longer term as well. Sometimes I feel like I don't belong on Helpx as it seems to me a bit like exploitation. But I, on the opposite, offer hosting without real work in exchange.

Participation with chores such as cleaning, meal preparation, cooking etc. Some language teaching/practicing also if appropriate (specially Spanish and Portuguese). I speak English, French.

In the mid and high season (May- October), if you want to find a paying job, there are plenty of seasonal jobs (Camping sites, hotels, restaurants, cafes and snack joints, shops, amusement parks..)
Some agricultural jobs also here and there (vineyards, orchards, etc)

All kinds of activities, shops, transportation just around the corner. 10 minutes from the beaches (nudis... more inside

Bonjour, kia ora and hi. We are Sara, Jeremy, 15 year old Elijah and dogs, Nyx and Lion and chickens, so far, hope for sheep soon. We are kiwis and British and have found a new home here in the sunny south west of France at the Moulin. It is on 8 acres of land, some woods, a river and pond, there are quite a few fruit trees, and a newly and very fast growing vegetable garden.
We have so much wildlife, frogs, bird, lizards, even salamanders. Our environment is pretty intact so the eco-system on our land is flourishing. It's wonderful and w etry and minimally impact on it.

For the last 3 years we have been tending and taming and renovating. This year we want to focus our fruit and veg.
Being somewhat sustainable is a goal so our chickens are part of that, as well as being lucky enough to have the fruit trees and good soil for our veg..
We will love to have help end of summer, early-autumn for fruit picking and help making jams and chutneys. We hate wasting food. Similarly our w... more inside
