We are looking for help with renovation of our house. The things we need help with are rebuilding Walls, gardening, painting walls, demolition of a central wall in the barn, and digging to help replace gate posts. We also need to build a wall in our chicken run, and repair the chicken coup. Some of our neighbours need help from time to time with their vegetable gardens.

This is an opportunity to do some physical work, learn some new skills, and have fun. We live in the south of Burgundy, near the Loire river, and you can walk, cycle, (if you bring an off road bike), camp, explore local villages, visit Lyon and other cities. It's easy to arrange couch surfing for your weekend trips.

We are meat eaters, and we eat a big midday meal in the French style, usually with friends, family and neighbours. We often have barbecues. We ask people to assist with preparation and clearing up of meals and other cleaning tasks when needed.

We are English - we and our friends and neighbours ... more inside

Dog loving couples/friends wanted for housesitting in February 2018 in Gascony - the Midi-Pyrenees, South West France!

We live in a partly renovated an old stone cottage in the middle of rolling vineyards in historic Gascony, in the South West of France and are looking for responsible pet sitters - ideally a couple or 2 friends - to mind our 11 friendly rescue dogs, and a few hens & ducks from approx 26 January to 14 February 2018. The dogs are quiet, friendly and generally well behaved but some experience with dogs is necessary and unfortunately we cannot accept Workawayers travelling with dogs.

The dogs need walking twice daily and feeding in the morning but the other animals take very little time. Duties include keeping the kennels clean and picking up poo in the garden plus feeding/watering ducks and hens. No other WorkAway duties are required but you do need to have had a valid driving licence for at least 3 years and be able to drive manual stick car in France.

Hello, I m originally a flatlander from the Netherlands but now living in a small hamlet in the beautiful hills in the Parc regional du Morvan surrounded by great nature.

This Burgundy area offers no wine makers but has many cycling and marked walking trails, a very rich biodiversity and 4 seasons which have each their own charm.

I m restoring my old farm building and hope to become self sufficient in energy and food by growing fruit and vegetables organically in my heaven a permaculture garden/orchard.
There are some chickens, bees and the dogs Sam and Joep to take care for.

It is great to live in and with nature and offer wild life an interesting habitat, so it can develop as rich as possible. The gardens are registered refuge by the Ligue Pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO).
Denault is a very good place to live, inviting HelpXers to share the good life makes the place more interesting. Longterm helpers can tend a permaculture design course.

It is nice to exchange ... more inside

We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spend time in and have fun!

To begin with, I prefer NON SMOKERS. I need someone with a driver's licence from November 30 onwards because I can't drive for a few months.

I am a former English teacher and I live in a small medieval town in a historical house with an organic garden; I have 6 apartements in my house which means a lot of work for which I need help like cleaning or repainting, although in the winter, there is not much work besides cleaning.I also have 1 holiday rental in Rouffach where I need help cleaning. I need help with my computer now and then...
I expect the helper to work 4 hours a day . I would prefer a helper who has some skills in gardening,sewing and/or cooking.
You will have your own bedroom on the 1st floor and share my bathroom. I have unlimited and fast wifi.
Ideally, I am looking for someone who can work on her/his own, I am very busy with renting out my apartments. Someone who can cook,clean the house, take care of the garden, without me telling him/her what to do.

Hi my name is Jacqui, I am English and speak fluent French. I live in a Breton longere, which comprises of a 2 storey house with various outbuildings.
I have lived here for 28 years, and it is very much a project in progress although in the last 12 months I have had considerable work completed in the house, although it is still very much work in progress.
I have roughly three quarters of an acre of land which is broken into parcels including a small mature orchard that needs some tender loving care and serious serous tree pruning, a large area that was once an organic vegetable plot that is for the moment a jungle which I eventually want to restore with raised beds and a walk in poly tunnel, also other areas that are overgrown with brambles/ivy/thistles and oth... more inside

Anita and I are looking for another volunteer or two for a couple of weeks from January 1st or 3rd to January 12th and somewhere between February 2nd and March 12th. Me, Alexander, partly from Russian origin) and my wife Anita are a Dutch couple (60 and 56). In July 2009 we took over a small hotel-restaurant in the Auvergne in France at the crossroads of two hiker trails GR 4 and 30. We decorated the hotel in a classical warm atmosphere and then added to the existing rambler rooms for backpackers a number of more regular hotel rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Today the hotel has 20 rooms altogether. It lies in the beautiful surroundings of the Parc des Volcans in the Auvergne with an exquisite landscape to be discovered as a hiker or on a mountain bike. Since we are also quite near to the ski station in Super Besse, we accommodate many ski-lovers in winterseason. On our premises you will find a large garden with terrace and a parking. Anita is a good cook, (she is a vegetarian herself)... more inside
