Hi,

We are a french couple of 35 years old and we live in an old country house with our son, Marek (22 months actually). We bought this house 2 years ago and we renovate it with our hands, our imagination, some recycling and natural products. We are not builders but that’s the 2nd house we renovate and we really love it. We always learn new technics with alternative books and exchange with lots of people.

For this summer we need helpers for completely transform the 1st floor. Electricity, plumbing, masonry, isolation, lime and wood ground. But we don't need people who have special skills for that, we just need hands to help us!! We can teach you some technics to renovate a house by using natural product.

Actually, We can host you in a room for 2 persons with all confort. We will provide you 3 meals per day, internet access with wifi and a washing mashine. We also want to bring travelers in our house to have an exchange with you, and if you want you can join us in our volunt... more inside

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

We have two houses, one is our home and one is a 4 bedroom gite, which we will offer for help outside of the main holiday season. So you would be staying in the gite and self catering. We have added the link to our gite, see our website link above.


We would like help this year with, painting, decorating and especially getting the garden straight. So someone with an interest and understanding in gardening would be great.
We could do with help during April, May and possibly June 2014. A couple would be ideal, partners or friends. A fortnight would be great but longer if you like it and could offer other help.

We have to say that we live in the middle of nowhere and have only one car that we need the use of, so that may be a problem but we go to the post office most days and so could arrange for lifts. If you had your own transport that would be even better.

Thank you very much

We run a small rose nursery and a display garden. We are looking for someone who likes horticulture and could help us in the garden and nursery. A wide range of tasks, including weeding, potting up, clearing away prunings and pruning. Just generally lending a hand. We have two dogs and two cats, so better for someone who likes animals a bit and is not allergic. Ideally we would like someone during March or April - the length of stay is negotiable. Work would be something like four hours a day.

Our situation is rural, about 5 kms from the nearest village which has the essentials. About 85 kms north of the Pyrenees, if you like the mountains.

Organic cereal farm and vegetable production. Two sets of accommodation for two different projects. An apartment in the loft space of an 18th century granary next to the organic vegetable production. Help here will involve sowing, planting, weeding, maintenance of the vegetable and garden areas. At the cereal farm, accommodation is in the farmhouse which you will have to yourselves and which has views over the pyrenees. General maintenance and upkeep and field work depending on the seasons. It will involve some use of tractors and some heavy work.

From mid-January 2014, we are setting up a centre on an instinctual feeling that it is needed, that we are guided into doing it, and that great things will come from it.

Set in rural northern Brittany, France, it is based on no set philosophy or set of teachings, but is open to whatever form it is due to take as individuals and groups come in and bring their own energies and teachings.

The centre itself is in a fairly large cottage with gardens in a small village in a lush part of the Breton countryside. The facilities are comfortable, and the space is plentiful.

The centre is working on a donation-basis. Any offerings towards the cost of the upkeep of the centre will be gratefully received, but there is no aim to be making an economic profit through its running. Rather, we aim to profit from the immense energies that will be coming through the centre, and to share in the positivity and unconditional love that will be present.

In the first few weeks of the project, we... more inside

We are an English family living in the foothills of the Pyrenees just outside the village of Greffeil. which is half and hour drive from the city of Carcassonne. Where you will find the Canal du Midi and the river Aude running through it. Also the medieval castle. A great tourist attraction.

Our home is set in 23 hectares of wood and open land where we keep horses and foals. Also pigs and cows.In spring we cut and bale hay which is quite a busy time and help would be handy to have.

we are quite isolated but if you like walking cycling and horse riding then this is ideal for you.

WE need a person who would like to help round the house and help on the land.

We do have bicycles to use so you could make it to the village of St.Hilaire where there are some shops.Otherwise you would have to rely on any of us to take you to the main towns.
