We have recently moved from Turkey where we hosted HelpX for 5 years. All of the reviews below prior to 2017 are with reference to that listing. We aim to continue our animal rescue and organic permaculture here in France.

We have a copse to restore and gardens to establish so there is plenty to keep us occupied.
We are also renovating a barn and so there are always on going projects.

We would require our helpers to have a good sense of humour and common sense and to be adaptable as life here is less than predictable. We never know what the day will throw at us and so are wary of making too many plans!

We would also require and trust helpers to keep their more than adequate accommodation clean and tidy and leave it as they found it and respect our home. We are VERY particular about this as we have been left with appalling conditions to clean up on a number of occasions.

We would like help for 6 hours a day for 5 days then 2 days off. We start work at 8 am as our anima... more inside

At this time, the sauna area stand up in the middle of the garage and we want to built a new place to receive it.Something else: the gabions are a kind of steel net box designed to receive stones like a tetris game, but a little more heavy...We are filling them.

OPPORTUNITY AT PRESENT TO HELP US WITH THE LAND AND WITH THE HOUSE & CHILDREN UNTIL CHRISTMAS (OR LONGER)
We are looking for a partly 'au pair' role (although light as both children go to school), keeping the house clean & taking care of the children after school, ideally in English, & occasionally cooking. The rest of the work hours will be around the land, tidying the veg garden and clearing up before winter. Some ongoing building projects too if you want to take part. Might be very well suited for a couple as you'll have your own space together and work autonomously. A lot of free time. Drivers license appreciated. No shorter stay than until Christmas in this role, so the children get acquainted to you. Thank you!

Welcome!
We are renovating an old farmhouse and giving a new life to one hectar of wooded land, one hour's train from Paris (but feels very far from the city- isolated farm in beautiful countryside). We are a young Franco-Italian-British family (2 sons, 5 a... more inside
