Currently looking for helpers for 2018.

Nick and James (and Luna, the dog) bought a collection of ruined farm buildings on 3 hectares in 2011 and have been steadily restoring since. The location is fairly remote. There is a small village 1km away, there is a tennis court, fishing lake, numerous countryside walks and cycling routes. The nearest town is 6km away and has numerous shops, a weekly traditional French market, a beautiful Château, bars and restaurants. Despite the remoteness there is always something going on. Work has just started on restoring a barn.

Accommodation is within the recently restored main house. You will have a private room with a double bed, WiFi and a lounge with UK and French TV. Or there is a camping field, if you prefer! We will provide all meals including at least one meal out per week. In exchange for about 6 hours helping per day, 6 days per week, we invite you for a 2 week stay. Longer stays are possible after a successful first visi... more inside

Hi, I live in a house with a garden of 1250m2, in a little town next to the sea, and next to the island of Noirmoutier.
I am 38. I've just finished studies to help disable people.
I am searching for some people: 2 would be better in the winter, because it's really calm, to help me in the garden, I'd like to create a space of permaculture! I have animals: a dog and 3 cats so you have to love animals. I am used to welcome travellers. I like old rock'n'roll, world music, I don't eat meat (so you will have to buy yours). I like Nature. I can speak english and spanish with some faults :-). There is one bedroom free. I will be happy to meet you!! Hasta luego!!! Anne

We are a young couple (30 and 32yo) living in the countryside near Nantes with our son (1yo) and Our animals ( cats, Farm rabbits, hens, ducks and sheep.)
We have a big garden and a vegetable garden, which demand a lot of work...

We have traveled a lot and we discovered helpx in australia. We enjoy meeting foreigners to share as we liked to, as we were traveling...

You could help us for 3 or 4 hours a day with gardening mostly. We don’t have a minimum amount of time for stays. In exchange of your work you will get free acomodation, meals and laundry. For your free time you can enjoy the nice garden to have rest, the swimming pool in the summer and he bicycles to ride around. And of course touring the area. We are 5km from the Loire river and in the middle of a nice wine region. We are also 7km from Ancenis(which is the nearest train station), around 50km from Nantes and Angers and 100km from the sea (Pornic).

We will need helpers in spring to prepare for the season ahead.
Work outside will change depending on weather although we always need people with craft /DIY skills in exchange for warming food and a loan of warm clothes if needed.
We need to repair fences around the sheep fields.
There may be a little pruning of fruit bushes and trees still to do
We really want people who are keen to learn about gardening organically and don't mind getting their hands dirty.
The garden work will be mainly clearing, splitting up and relocating perrenial plants. Adaptability and common sense are invaluable working in this situation.
We usually speak English in the house so it could be useful for those who wish to improve their English as well as their French.
Some Helpx have completed or started studies while here. Some have painted or explored the walkways.
When it is not possible to work on the land we have many inside jobs in the barn. Woodwork, plastering, plumbing, painting, mi... more inside

This year we are looking for help with the construction of a terrace/patio and with woodland maintenance. Accommodation will be in a very comfortable caravan, with meals eaten together in the farmhouse.

We are a British couple who have lived in the north of Pays de la Loire for 9 years, trying to be as self-sufficient as possible (given the limitations of the size of our small holding - >2 ha- and our advancing years - 60's!!). We have 2 very large vegetable plots, a large poly-tunnel, chickens, as well as 3 dogs and 2 yard cats. English is spoken all the time, and we have adequate French for conversation and everyday circumstances. We are happy to help improve your English.

Our smallholding is surrounded by countryside, both fields and forest (the nearest neighbour is 600m away). The property is bounded by a small stream. The nearest shop, boulangerie and hotel/restaurant are 7km away. We are equidistant (13 km) from Bauge, La Fleche and Le Lude, all of which have f... more inside

I have recently moved to France.

I am trying to create a large garden converting farmland / lawned areas. We are creating new flower beds, introducing trees, installing water features, pathways etc. I also have some barns which need doing up but not as living accommodation. There is a lot to do!

Help would be greatly appreciated, including garden clearance, dry stone walling, painting and decorating, planting, grass cutting and strimming.

The accommodation is in the house (private rooms) but you can camp stay in the barn etc if you wish.

I will provide all meals with wine at dinner. There are two bikes available for use. There are lots of cycle tracks. The local area has Roman and Medieval towns with markets and good restaurants etc. Le Mans is also quite close.

I go backwards and forwards to the UK so could provide transport to get there. If you came as a foot passenger from UK from Portsmouth to Caen I could pick you up. You can also fly to Rennes or Tours. ... more inside

URGENT - Just been let down by a volunteer so space available NOW.
LONG TERM help would be ideal.

If you know how to use, sharpen and maintain chainsaws, that would be truly fabulous.

We moved to France in 2008 from Scotland with the aim of living more ecologically and are passionate about sustainability. We live on the edge of the Perche National Park in a small hamlet and have an old house with barn and outbuildings together with 7 hectares (17 acres) of land. Our nearest village is 2.5 km (1 mile) away and the nearest town, La Ferte Bernard is 5.5 miles to the south with good facilities. From La Ferte Bernard there are easy, direct rail and road links to Le Mans (30 miles) and Paris (105 miles).

Accommodation would be in the house with us and food is sharing our daily repas. We are omnivores but I can cater for vegetarians. Currently I feel unable to provide a balanced diet for vegans so sadly we can not accommodate those with a vegan lifestyle. Thanks to two very fu... more inside
