//-- MAY 2014: you are welcome to help me - Thomas - in my house to make the most beautiful wood floor of the area :-) --//

Hi we are Isabelle, Victor, Siscu, Ivan and Thomas (35 to 40 years old). All together we own five antic barn - small stone constructions that was for cows before -. We are French and Spanish peoples and all of us speak French, Spanish and some English. Some of us can speak Portuguese, Arab, Italian, German. We use to be there in summer time, with friends from every where, renovating the houses, cleaning the wood and the country paths. We have interest in eco-energy, solar panels, eco-construction etc. We also spend time walking in the mountain, going to the river, doing paragliding, climbing, etc. In June we are planing to do a trip by horse from Spain to here in the Pyrenees. And so in summer the horses will probably stay with us. We trained them doing natural horsemanship...

We need help with everything relating with construction: building stone walls,... more inside

We are an English family of 4 with a cat and we have had a house in the SW of France since 2006. Our children are bilingual in French and English.

We are looking for hardworking couples/friends for one week in June from the 11th to help with all aspects of gardening, (mainly cutting back, strimming & pruning) perhaps some painting. Carpentry skills would be very useful.

We are also looking for couples /friends for stays of varying lengths, mid September though to the end of October, to cut back, put the garden to bed for the winter and painting.

We accept both skilled or unskilled people , however we need people able to work on their own initiative and you will need your own footwear suitable for outside work.

The accommodation is in our two bedroom self contained Gite. With all your homely requirements and access to wireless internet. The home stay is offered with breakfast, lunch and dinner in return for 25hrs over the week.

We live in a peaceful location in rura... more inside

We are renovating a 19th century farm’s barn in the Gâtinais, 100 km south of Paris, just at the beginning of Burgundy. It’s located in a small village between Nemours and Sens, at the edge of the forest. Our house built during the same period is at front.

We have a double purpose:
Firstly to be able to host training courses or artistic residences: music, theater, yoga, everything is possible !

Secondly to receive guests as a traditional B&B. We have done the most difficult part, but we need help to finish, so if you have time, and want to see the country, welcome!

Come and enjoy some Pyrenean sunshine....Nothing to do but gardening for 3-4 hrs a day for 1-2 weeks in May or June - mainly tidying and cutting back, weeding, some tree chopping.

Also nothing to do but painting ... again for 1-2 weeks - outside window sills and frames and a general tidy up of the outside of my house. Also basic insde wall painting. 2 people will make the work much easier.

If someone is able and up for both projects I am offering 1 week free to do nothing but relaxing, walking, cycle etc in the mountains, enjoying the local market etc and soaking up the sunshine

In exchange I offer an open plan ground floor apartment with 1 double bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom with Wifi. The village of Engomer, is a picturesque village in the French Pyrenees, 1 hr from the Spanish border and 1 hr south of Toulouse, with easy access to both the Med and Atlantic coasts (3 + hrs away in both cases)I am 8 mins from our local town of St Girons, which is typically Fr... more inside

Hello girls, we're still looking for one female helper for this end of March, the whole of April and from 8th May until 20th May. There are probably no vacancies left for the rest of summer, except September. Length of stay is really up to you and can range from a few days up to a month or more. If you enjoy swimming, nature, the outdoors and lakes, this could be your preferred choice.

We are a nearly vegetarian definitely non-smoker Peruvian & French-Belgian family of 6 (2 parents, three kids (now 18, 11 and 9) and grand-father. We live 10 km South of Annecy in the French Alps in a stunning environment,7 min by bike from the shores of "our" lake, a mere 45-minute drive from Geneva. This is a residential suburb. It's not the country, neither is it the city. Our "village" is called Saint Jorioz.I suggest you look it up on Google Earth or Google images, you will have a pleasant surprise.

The best way to get here is by train or else flying in from Geneva then travel by bus to A... more inside

Small holding with award winning gardens located in the Marais National Park on the Cotentin Peninsular. The farmhouse dates from 1706 but is believed to be on the site of a much earlier monastic farm. This is a peaceful rural retreat in an unspoilt part of Manche, Normandie, France, within ten minutes by car of the pretty market town of Coutances and about 18km from idyllic unspoilt beaches. The regions hosts over 1 million visitors each year for the D-Day beaches, Bayeaux Tapestry and the beautiful island of Mont St Michel. (Approx 2hrs 40mins by TGV from Paris -nearest ferry port is Cherbourg, nearest airport Caripiquet, Caen.) In the summer we operate as holiday accommodation. We require help mostly in the gardens and potager, and some light housework and maintenance. We can offer a friendly environment, pleasant accommodation and good quality food, eating with the family, using locally sourced produce, supplemented by our own organic eggs and vegetables.

Elodie and Nicolas. We live in the Combrailles, the crossroad of Allier, Creuse and Puy-de-dôme regions.

We breed horses in nature, actually his 3 mares (and their foals) and a poney. They live in fields with forest, hills, plains, and rivers.

We also try to make our home autonomous then we grow our food in a small organic garden, we cook on fire, warm the place with the stove, etc... We cook lot of things and most often we do our own bread for example. Furthermore, we love to walk in the nature and pick fruits (apples, blackberries, walnuts and hazelnuts...) that become jams or mushrooms when the weather is friendly.

We also have some chickens, 4 cats, and 2 families of bees.


We are looking for some help with the fields of horses first. But we also need to keep our garden clean, we need to cut wood for winter, and things like that.

Eco-autonomous-projects : we would like to find people interested in building solar-oven, wind turbines, etc... and any idea going that... more inside
