Our project, which is already well underway, is the renovation of the former Commandery of the order of the Templars and Maltese Knights and its outhouses, establishing a small size spice and herbs farm according to organic standards.
We are a well-travelled, Anglo/French retired couple (young in spirit and very active) living in a rural area just south of Brittanny and 10kms from the coast and the river Loire, after a life of travel, working and sailing in the Indian and the Pacific oceans.
We receive many helpers wanting to improve their French and provide our help to achieve their objective. We have a horse and use a couple of sheep from neighbours to help keep the grass under control in the spring.
Ideally we would like a couple for a period from a couple of weeks to 4 weeks depending on how it works out for both parties. On the agenda would be tending to plants and garden, working on old walls and installing panelling, plus plenty of inside painting. To vary things when ... more inside

We spend most of the summer in France, from April to November, returning to England periodically. We are renovating a farmhouse in the Pays de Loire region and would appreciate help with various jobs in and around the house and the land, in return for board and food. The accommodation is modest, due to renovation works, but we can keep you clean, warm and well fed.

The work will be varied, from helping to renovate and decorate to cooking and cleaning, from rotovating, cutting grass to chopping fire wood.
We have all types of machinery, sit on mower, log splitter, log saw and various gardening equipment to make working easier.
We have Internet.
Smokers are welcome, but all smoking is undertaken outside of the house.
We will provide basic breakfast and lunch, and an evening "hearty" meal.
We are 8 km from town.
The local village (20min walk) has a convenience store and a tabac.
We have farm cats that like to come and go.

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 4-5 hours helping per day, 5 days per week, we invite you for a 2 week stay. Longer stays are possible after a successful first vi... more inside

We have smart gites and a horse breeding farm.We are looking for someone or a couple to help with the garden and general work around the property. Mowing, strimming and other maintenance work maybe! It is not necessary to actually help preparing the gites.
My husband (from New Zealand) and myself (from UK) need help in all kinds of areas! There is a self contained flat available for you to live in. Lunches would be 'en famille'. We are in a beautiful area of the Loire Valley and just 1 hour from Tours with a local bus - lots to do and see! You don't need to help more than 4 hours per day and hours are flexible. We have a horse breeding farm 1 km away so if you are interested in horses you might be able to help there too. We also have a couple of well behaved and kind large dogs. So you would need to like animals! Minimum time required 3 weeks. Longer stays possible. You should preferably be positive, self motivated and active!
We have been living in France for over ten years ... more inside

We are an English family some of who have lived in the area for 10+ years others are more recently arrived. We run a bike hire business from our Mill near Saumur.


We live in a Water Mill that we are renovating. The Mill is located 10 mins from Saumur and the Loire. There has been a Mill here for 300 years. We have lots of exciting ideas that cover lots of different skills and are very enthusiastic to turn them into reality. We have general tasks that anyone can do (cleaning, painting, gardening, assisting in building work) and would specifically love to hear from roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and welders.

Thanks for your interest

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 perennial 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, m... more inside
