Residence in French Pyrenees, at the feet of one of the largest natural resorts of France.
I want to make of this place a retreat centre where people come for seminars and workshops about personal development and alternative healing.
Having the first residents arriving soon, I need an alround helper: painting, cutting trees and gardening but also cleaning rooms. If you like mountains, this is the place for you.
Bus to Perpignan railway station and airport.
I offer lodging, meals included and 50/50 working/time off. My mother language is Dutch but I speak fluent French and English.

Location .

We live in a village near Vire (Calvados ), in Basse Normandy . It is well placed for main motorways and about 1 1/4 hrs from the main ferry ports of Caen / Cherbourg / Le Harve and St Malo . Beautiful beaches and charming seaside town Granville are 45mins drive , Mont St Michel and the D-Day beaches and Bayeaux ( tapestry ) about an hour away . Vire has a good main line train service to Paris and airports at Rennes and Dinard are about 1 1/2 hrs away .

The House .

We are curently in the process of renovating a 'Maison de Maitre'and would guess we are some 70% through the work . We would welcome any assistance in finishing the house and in return for work would offer full board - all meals etc and continuous supply of wine and beer if required , although it might be a good idea for most of it to be drunk after work .

The work .

All sorts really , the usual stuff from general light labouring outside, decorating / painting and general DIY inside to so... more inside

We are an English/American couple with three bilingual teenagers living in the rural idyll of Basse Normandie, 40 mins from Le Mont St. Michel. The kids are very busy with college, evening activities and their social lives. We grow as much of our own food as possible, have outside work, teach Yoga and practise Craniosacral Therapy. We need help with the tranformation of outhouses into usable spaces, painting and decorating and garden creation. There is free use of the telephone to landlines and Wi-fi internet and bicycles.

We are Mo and David. We have retired from a very busy life running a spiritual centre in Kent England. We moved to this beautiful area in South West France in November 2007. We are both artists, David works in wood mostly although he is also fully skilled in building and maintenance. David and Mo built a kiln last summer and Mo is returning to making ceramics after a long absence. Volunteers would be welcome to use the pottery and art studio in their spare time..

We have about four and half hectars (about 12 acres) of land, which consists of woodland and meadows, which is cut once a year by a farmer, and a rose garden which surrounds the house. we also have a thriving vegetable garden.

We have an organic vegetable and fruit garden. We are very conscious of the necessity of being organic, but have had to use a limited amount of weed sprays on the ornamental garden.


We are ten minutes from the nearest town, in a very rural area, we have bikes and lots of quiet countrysid... more inside

We are a friendly English family living in the Mayenne area in France. We run a small gite/B&B business and have had some lovely reviews.

During the horrendous storms at the end of January beginning of February a small stone old house which was the horses stable was blown down. We would ideally like someone to help reconstructing another building hopefully at the end of April beginning of May. The horse fortunately was not hurt and we have since made him another stable in the field.

We would also like to put a Summer house in the garden so if someone is handy with the hammer and nails would be perfect.

Also from September onwards it would be lovely if we could have some help as we are renovating a house for us to live in and could do with some help from anyone who has building experience to make two large fireplaces, do some plumbing or help with the rewiring please. In return you would have the use of an en-suite showerroom, there is a bike you can borrow and all yo... more inside

We're a middle age'sh couple living in the South of France with grown up kids in the UK who visit as much as they can. We're still trying to decide what to do when we grow up but in the meantime we're renovating a barn and a Farmhouse ready for holiday accommodation in the summer. The place is set in 8 hectares of woodland and meadow on a sunny hillside near a few picturesque villages and only 45 minutes from the beautiful city of Toulouse (Train station 10 minutes drive away) We have 2 swimming pools, gardens and the most stunning views of the Pyrenees you could imagine. We offer really nice accommodation in the gites attached to the farmhouse and opportunities for you to have time to explore the area and get to know this most unspoiled area of France (Haute Garonne/Ariege) and have some fun living and working with us. In return we ask for help with building, decorating and gardening work.

We are a very happy Anglo-French family, Claire 36, Jean-Christophe 38, Jean-Luc 5, twins Amelie & Sydney nearly 3 & the ever faithful Labrador Genie 10. We moved to France 3 years ago to experience a more peaceful, spacious and naturally enriching way of life. There have been many ups & downs, but we are finally settling into our family home that we have been renovating for some time. My husband works regularly in the UK & my children are at school & crèche locally. We have renovated many properties & built a new home in the UK before leaving for France. My husband is a skilled builder & project manager. I was previously a textile designer before children & a British Wheel qualified Yoga teacher post children.
Our house is nearly finished but we have a big project on our hands in the garden. It is all to do, I am excited about planning out the space, preparing the soil, constructing our huge eBay greenhouse we are dismantling at the moment in England, ready to bring over & erect ... more inside

Chris and Maggie live in a large house which was renovated a few years ago. We just outside the village of Varen, about 100 kms north of Toulouse. Chris is semi-retired, having worked in UK TV and radio as a drama writer and producer and subsequently as an internet consultant, providing advice to the creative industries on how to manage content online. Maggie is an artist and part time teacher of English and French. We have both travelled extensively in Europe and the rest of the world. Nowadays we still spend a certain amount of time travelling, occasionally working away from home, but otherwise occupy ourselves with gardening, tinkering with this and that, reading. Maggie works in her studio and I have a work room in the house.
The house is surrounded by its own land, with gardens, woodland and a river for swimming and canoeing. There is a railway nearby with direct trains to Toulouse. We are both sociable people, taking great enjoyment from cooking and eating, good conversatio... more inside
