We have 2 big houses built in 1860, by my great grand father who was head of a factory making stoves and all sorts of things in cast iron. We have a big park needing lots of care and a house needing also lots of care. it is a lovely place, a 19 century time warp, where we all love to come in summer to be reunited. We always need extra help for cooking, maintening and looking after young children. It is a family athmosphere and a life in the the French countryside. It is only for country lovers and it s a very unspoilt part of France

Hi ! We urgently need a volunteer between Jeuly 1 and July 17 to help with gardening and construction work as we are preparing to host summer camps and the bad weather means we have a whole backlog of work. Full accomodation provided, good food, nice work in a beautiful environment with hosts speaking french, spanish and english.


This is a beautiful 24 ha property: 5,5 ha of lovely oak forest and 18,5 of undulating pastures with many trees and a small river at the lower end. We raise lusitanian horses and develop an eco-holiday resort with children camps, which means a lot of work for renovation, organic gardening, etc. etc.

The location: 3km away from the cutest village on earth, Lagraulet du Gers, with its medieval tower and ditch.

The farm: The land was cultivated under intensive farming and the soil is quite degraded, so in order to regenerate it we have converted it to organic pastures where we raise horses (2 foals this year !). Last year we cultivated organic hem... more inside

        



Town or City: Mayenne

We live in the midst of the rural Mayenne region, surrounded by beautiful scenery, rolling fields and dairy farms, but are still within easy reach of towns, villages and larger cities like Laval and Rennes.

Outside we have about an acre of land, consisting of a vegetable garden, from which we are pretty self-sufficient, an orchard which provides our fruit and is the home for our mixed flock of birds who provide our eggs(chickens, duck, guinea fowl and geese) and the rest of the land is lawns and flower gardens.

We have ongoing jobs of painting, chopping wood, clearing parts of the garden, building flower beds and general garden duties, most of which will be quite physical, and I am sure will take us right through the summer months.

Whilst we are not vegetarian ourselves, we can provide vegetarian meals.

We have good wi-fi access, but not very good mobile phone reception.

Please contact us if you are interested.

We are an english family with grown up children, have lived in France for 11 years and breed native Fell ponies that we have lived and worked with for many years, and now breed, we have 13 ponies here and i have 3 which need to be trained to ride and drive this summer, also help in the garden and with the cooking would be good, so we can have lots of time with the ponies. I will need a person who can stay for 4 weeks as the "starter " training for a pony is about this time and it is important to have the same two working trainers so that the pony trusts you.
You must have enthusiaism for working with animals and want to learn about them, but you do not need to have been trained with horses before, as this is helping me to do the training, but if you can ride this is good, and have a keen interest in country life.
TRAINING these ponies as I see it, is time and patience, with a little work every day and enjoying the trust an animal can put in you is a very good worth while feeling. ... more inside

Young household looking for help and good company. I am a qualified carpenter and general builder who works full time. Therefore, I need help renovating my house which I am living in. My brother Stephen and his arch nemesis James have come to help finish but there is too much to do. We are simply looking for help around the house and a willingness to get involved. A couple hours of help a day would be plenty. You are welcome to stay for a few days or several weeks.

There is a small field at the bottom of the garden where we are keeping two sheep and are getting some chickens too (with a possible duck). There is also currently a dog with a Yorkshire accent. As well as my small livestock, I like to place an emphasis on organic food generally.

I can offer experience in building with a relaxed lifestyle in the heart of the French Pyrenees. The house is on the outskirts of the main town of the area with amenities down the road. There is accommodation in the house but you will be l... more inside
