I was travelling around the world for 6 months using HelpX as often as possible. I enjoyed it !!! That's why I decided to be an host !

I live, with my 2 boys and 2 girls, actually 16, 10, 3years old and 6 months, in the center of France. Le Puy en Velay is in the middle of old vulcanoes. It's a small city, about 25 000 inhabitants, in the countryside. There is a train station.

I'm a primary school teacher and a gymnastics trainor. My partner will be working abroad for 3 months so I need some help with my kids.
Usually you will have your weekends free and almost all the day until 5 pm but sometimes I will need more help.

This is a horse stud being started, and as such with a lot of outdoors works. But mostly renovating the buildings, maintaining the fields and fences.
Taking care of the animals all year long: depends on season too.
There is always plenty to do at a farm.
No time and no taste for bad food: so when the seasons allow it, vegetables will be cultivated, in the easiest way.
So I'd be happy to have a helper who will take in charge the things I cannot do because the time for all is always too short. Soon the weather will allow it, we'll have to prepare the garden so we can plant the vegetables. Soon, the first foal will be born. Soon the training will start again for the competitions in the summer., and my days will always be shorter.
If you're looking for something new. Something different and are not afraid to be in the middle of the french country please, do apply!

We are a British couple who have moved to France to renovate an old building and run a b&b! We are looking for a couple who could come and help us while we are busy running our b&b and working. A non-smoking couple would be preferred and vegetarians would be wonderful!

The work:

We need some carpentry work doing - adding an internal window to a skylight, fitting some doors, insulating external doors etc etc

We are flexible on the work arrangements. It could be done in a block of days, or a few hours a day, or a mixture of the two, allowing you the time to explore the region and its volcanos, chateaux, pretty villages, markets, vide greniers etc.

The area:

We live in the old school of a pretty rural village deep in the 'real' France which has remained pretty untouched . If you want to spend your time with French people and practicing your French, rather than a touristy region, then this is for you!! It is an excellent area for off road biking or cycling through forests... more inside
