Beautiful Farm in a lovely setting in the Charente Maritime on the Gironde estuary. The village has a port and several restaurants and is lively in the summer. The farm is a mixed farm but mainly we grow grapes for Cognac and Pineau. There is internet access at the library (about 5 minutes walk) and I am in the process of installing internet "chez nous." I am looking mainly for help with childminding duties at various times of the day as well as a hand around the farm,(my daughter is 10 years old) Please telephone in the evening as I am unusually working on the farm during the day, I am French but I do speak English and my daughter understands English very well too. I look forward to meeting you.

*The first of the plums trees has started to blossom, a beautiful sight. Must get on and finish the fruit tree pruning NOW! Why not come and give us a hand*

We are an English family living in a small French Village in Poitou-Charentes.

We have an orchard with around 30 mature trees including walnut, cherry, plum, apple, pear, peach, quince and vines; a large vegetable plot and small number of ducks, geese and chickens.

We are looking for one person or a couple to help us tame our orchard and maintain productivity in the vegetable plot. There are a number of trees which need pruning, mulching and general care. Knowledge would be helpful but not essential and the work would not be too demanding - No more than a few hours a day. Ideally this work will happen during the spring.

With the age of the house and the out buildings there is always additional tasks to be completed alongside the gardening. Again, none of this would be too technical or strenuous.

In return we... more inside

This is a large farm in the south west area of France. We are a young English Family living here and running two gites in the Summer months and require an individual or couple just for a couple of weeks before the start of the season to help get the gites and gardens ready - some light building work may be required and general garden maintenance. The house is just 20 mins from the coast and the busy town of Royan. Accommodation would be self contained in one of the gites and we would provide an evening meal as well in return for approx 25 hours work a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

Family home, with ongoing rennovations, animals to look after and a vegetable plot to tend to. Plus any household jobs that need doing.

We have quite a few animals, including a couple of dogs, a few chickens, ducks, and horses, so animal friendly people is a must! You don't need to be particularly horsey as my daughter generally looks after them, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind a helping hand with the mucking out and moving of the muck heap...!

Our plans for this year are mainly painting the inside and outside of the house, quite a bit of gardening, tending the veggie plot, and fencing the field. Maybe building a few horse jumps, wings, painting poles..etc. One rather important thing that must be done this year is repairing the roof of a low barn. It needs somebody who isn't afraid of heights but doesn't need to be someone who is a qualified roofer.

My husband works away so it isn't easy for him to do any rennovating, gardening..etc. so I'm calling all HelpXers that want t... more inside

On our premises we have one house where we (a Dutch family) live in and two gites (cottages) for renting out.

Before summer season starts there is some work to do in the garden. We are looking for a couple or 2 friends who like to help me!

You will stay in one of the gites (central heating, bathroom, kitchen, living room with t.v and dvd, wireless internet) and you can cook yourself, or share meals with our family, or have breakfasts and lunch with just the 2 of you and only have the evening meal with us.

One of the things that needs to be done is the garden, is setting up a (small) vegetable garden.
Also there is work to be done like lawn mowing (tractor), weeding, mending fences, set up childrens playground, etc. (just make it pretty)

The work will take about 2 to 3 weeks, pref. beginning of March.

We are located in the beautiful countryside of the Charente, about 1 hour drive from Bordeaux.
We have 1 small dog. There are bicycles for you to use. We speak Dutc... more inside

We live in an old farmhouse with 1 acre of garden and a 5 acre paddock. My wife and I are retired I have a heart condition and my wife ia disabled, so we need help with the heavy work.
Various projects include:
Planting a 'living fence' with Willow;
Creating a soft fruit garden from the old kitchen garden;
some post and rail fencing;
note - the digging etc can only be done once the ground is soft enough, so autumn / winter is the best time.
some indoor painting;
maintenance work on the gites;
help with horses - stables.

20 hours work per week in exchange for free self contained gite.Free U.K. tv and internet connexion.
