Hi, This is a real challenge for you !!!
We are trying to renovate the farm and run it at the same time. It is not easy. It had been abandoned for a few years. We started with a few chickens and rabbits, now we have goats, sheep, a donkey, lots of birds, a huge fowl unit under construction, clearance of the ground - brambles and stinging nettles all over ! as well as a bit of a garden. The project of a small business is hatching, but I have to start a year's course to obtain a status of a farmer. So I need help with the morning chores, not really anything else, although participation in all aspects of life tending to be self sufficient muchly appreciated ;-). The morning chores include:
-preparing the breakfast faire for the 2 pigs, 10 goats, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits; the sheep and the donkey have all-you-can-eat buffet in their 6 ha field behind the house; distributing hay to those who eat it, some straw to make everybody comfy- as needed, topping up water for everybod... more inside

We are a young couple Floriane et Cyril with a cat and have a nice wooden house with a big garden. If you want visiting Ariege it is a really nice area with a lot of prehistoric site and a lot of bush walk across the mountains, rock climbing and you can ski in winter. We will be happy to give you a bed and 3 meals a day in exchange of small work gardening in spring and summer, cutting wood in autumn, and house cleaning in winter. This is just an example contact us prior and will let you know what happen at the moment. We are French speaking and know just a little bit of English but we are willing to learn more and we can always understand by body language :)

See you soon !

My name is Benji i'm 29 and i'm restoring a nice sheep barn of 1832 in the mountain at 1700m altitude in front of a big ski resorts called "Paradiski" in the french alps just then the Tarentaise valley. I'm restoring this in an ecological and we're searching the maximum autonomy.

Lots of sports activities (ski, trekking, paragliding, cannyoning and more) are available around.

My father is sometimes at the bergerie to help me and my friends are often here. The first neighbour is a sheperds with his sheepdogs comes with lot of sheeps (around 1200 sheeps ! ) or cows near the bergerie, this is the great mountain !

There is a little kitchen of camping, the water and the electricity by electrogen group. There is toilets and a garden with vegetables.

I live in a small village in the East Charente, SW France and need help with general maintenance. All sorts of handyperson work is needed - especially sorting out the front of the house so it has a bit more kerb appeal to help me sell it. It needs painting and fencing and something doing to tidy up the ground where I've had a huge tree taken out. The garden could do with something doing with it too. Inside I need painting done and plumbing (fit a shower and loo upstairs).

I also have a house in the Dordogne which I am preparing to move to. I need help there with gardening, inside painting/decorating and general stuff like fitting a bath panel, building a cupboard around my newly installed chauffe-eau. I also have some large bakery equipment to remove so I can use the space it's currently taking up. There is even a little house next door which needs everything from a new roof down so any skills would come in handy somewhere, I'm sure.

How many I can accommodate and... more inside

We are in the gorgeous foothills of the French Pyrenees and are making this offer to one or two people who are looking to enjoy some time here.
Stunning French scenery, a beautifully renovated chateau carriage house with WiFi and all mod cons, comfortable & clean rooms, good food and an easy-going atmosphere.

In October we will need a hand with a range of tasks, from decorating, moving furniture, cutting and moving firewood to domestic chores and dog walking.

Working hours and tasks can be altered to suit whoever we accept, and in October I expect to offer accommodation ONLY in exchange for around 15 hours of work per week.
The accommodation is 1st class, see the link to the gite booking page.
When not working, the area has so much to see and do and we can happily help with advise and transport.

Hello! We are a family of four, living in an old mill house on top of a hill in the countryside. We are renovating our house and also have about 100 ares of land to maintain with a kitchen garden, fruit trees, and a pond. That, plus our jobs and our two kids who are aged 5 and 7. So we are pretty busy and enjoy having people around to help us, and also to share different cultures and experiences.

We need help with the renovating works of the house, the maintaining of the garden, various DIY jobs, but also with looking after the kids, cooking and cleaning the house. There is no need to work more than a couple of hours a day and the timetable can be arranged with the person(s) coming. At the moment we especially need help with keeping up the house and looking after the kids and meals.

We like sports, arts and crafts, music, cooking and we like to eat well! You are welcome if you would like to share our activites and want to make new acquaintances.

This house is in Puyricard in the south east of France. We are 10km away from Aix en Provence and 30km away from Marseilles.

My children and I have just come back from New Zealand and moved in with my mother. Because she lived on her own for so long the house kind of declined due to the lack of skills to fix little things which with time have become bigger problems.

So, basically, we need people who can help with the garden (being able to use a chainsaw is a big plus) to trim hedges, cut dead trees, plant trees-plants-flowers, mow the lawn. We also need people who can help with renovations: plumbing, plastering, floor layering.

In exchange for 4-5 hours work per day you get accommodation with meals :-)
