We work on a superb site in the Pyrenees (in the mountains in Ariege - South-west of France)and renovate a small farm with a big organic garden in permaculture, donkeys(3). We live in a sustainable and low impact way.
We need help for the garden (planting, weeding) and the rehabilitation of the houses, taking care of the animals, helping us for cutting wood, making fences, hay making in summertime, and also participating a little bit at the house cleaning while we have also a small B&B activity in summertime. For the fall, we would welcome a guy who can help us with rebuilding stone-walls, wood cutting, fences fixing, land-cleaning...
We expect helpers minimum 25 years old who can speak and understand french; and who have already some physical and hand-working experience.
We are also musicians..

I (along with my ex) bought an old farm and farmhouse where I live in Normandy, because I fell in love with the land. I have converted a cottage into a B&B with 4 bedrooms (all en suite), and are now converting the first barn. I also have a Yurt and a campsite, chickens, geese, turkeys, goats and 2 cats so far. With the accommodation and farm and further buildings to be converted I could always do with an extra pair of hands so skills can range from building, painting, cleaning, farming hay and generally mucking in! Someone with a sense of humour would be great. I enjoy music so you may find all sorts playing, from classical to Genesis or Roxy Music!
I can offer accommodation, meals and flexible hours.

Easy to find and get to .. .By train leave Paris at the Gare de St Lazare for Cherbourg. Get off at Lison station and I can meet you there!

We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in production. We practice permaculture and the olives are part of a 'forest garden' which also includes 200 cork oaks, carob & other trees & shrubs. We also have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, dogs, cats, a house pig, donkeys, bees and worms!. Living in a Mediterranean climate we practice several different methods of water recycling & have a biological swimming pool. Help is required with all aspects of a compassionate, sustainable lifestyle.
Meals are vegan, wine is served with the evening meal and we are non smoking. Current projects are general forestry & garden management plus various indoor projects for bad weather.
Normally up to 4 helpers are here at a time, living as part of a family style community. We ask a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, with longer stays very much preferred. People usually book a few weeks ahead, but we sometimes have last minutes vacancies.

Hello,

We are a young mixed couple (Elisa is Italian and Alex is French) and we love travelling. During our trips we have been helpers several times and we loved the idea of HelpX that made us meet lovely people and living extraordinary experiences.
We want to continue the HelpX adventure as a Host this time.
Today we live in Auvergne in a small city (Beaumont) which is situated at 15 minutes in bus or 5 minutes (by car) from Clermont Ferrand. Clermont Ferrand is 1,5 hour drive from Lyon and 3,5 hours drive from Paris. Since February 2016 a lovely babyboy joined our life : Leonardo.

The region is lovely and offer greats touristic opportunities especially for travellers that love nature, walktrails, sky and cheese and wine! You will also find lakes to swim during the summer and sky station during the winter!

We propose to host you (max 2 people) to help us with our garden, our veggie garden, our chicken yard and with the housekeeping. We propose to host you (we offer you o... more inside
