Hello you, I'm Thomas, two children living here for 20 years and growing sheep on a 80 hectare forest and field place.
Since always, my house has been open, and helpex is for me, a way to carry on sharing nice work, with nice people in a nice place.

It's a well kept old traditionnal farm, at 4 kms from the little village, lost in the forest, very calm, lot of foot path with rivers next to here.

On a side of this land, a non commercial activity has taken place, witch is made first to awake school children about their environnemnt, we also have there a permaculture veg garden, self construction events, and some activities around the biodiversity along the little wild rivers of the area.

I use to welcome 2 to 4 visitors at the same time, to have an independant and friendly team !
Sometime, a visitor choose himself something to do in the place : Save this tree, carrying this wood, repairing this wall, without any push from anyone here. I don't mean i will never give any dire... more inside

** Looking for people available NOW for vine pruning and other activities including restoring old buildings**

We are a vineyard in the south west of France near St Emilion and less than an hour from Bordeaux. The property is a genuine old wine chateau with origins to the 13th century. We also run self catering accommodation for tourists who come from around Europe and North America. Wireless broadband available. The property extends to over 36 hectares and has meadows, woodland and a fishing lake which we sometimes swim in. In return for help in the vineyard, gardening we offer accommodation as well as teach you the basics of vineyard care.

In September 2010 we bought a derelict farm in the heart of the Perigord Vert (North Dordogne) in France. The house was not habitable, the barns were run down with leaky roofs, the land we bought with the farm was either run down meadow, a mix of derelict copse as well as even more derelict mature woodland and the arable land was being rented out to a neighbouring farmer and we had no equipment with which to work the land other than a few garden tools. When we moved on site on in November 2010 it was into a 10m x 3m static caravan. That's us, four kids, 3 dogs, and 3 cats. So what has changed in the last year? Well, because of work commitments not a lot has changed. Some work has been completed on the house and two of the boys are currently camped out in the kitchen. We have an extra dog and an itinerant stray cat who puts in an occasional appearance but not much else has moved forward since we arrived. However, I now have a break and I am going to get going with some of the project... more inside

I am restoring as sympathetically as possible an old perigourdine farmhouse, a cottage and a barn all in the region of 400 years old. The property is in a beautiful setting overlooking a large lake and in the middle of a forest in the Dordogne region of France. St Michel is located between the medieval towns of Riberac and Mussidan. The area is renowned for its local produce and wines. There is an abundance of wildlife and flora as the area is virtually unspoiled by commercial farming or pollution as a result the air quality is second only to the Swiss Alps and is highly oxygenated.
Ideally I am looking for people with building trade experiece such as bricklayers, roofers, plumbers etc. The farm sits in about 30 acres of land with another 34 acres not attached. The land consists of mixed woodland and there is a beautiful meadow to the rear of the barn which leads to the lake. The whole property has been virtually untouched for a very long time so the conditions are somewhat basic. ... more inside

organic farm producers with two children aged 9 and 12 (boy and girl) living in one of the most beautiful villages of South-West France
are looking for help especially with their children during the prune harvest period.

What do we expect? activities with the children like go to the swimming pool with the kids, go for bicycles rides, play games, speak a bit english with them etc.
Preparing the meals would be a good "activity" as well :-)

I have a organic soap kitchen in the middle of the fields, and would like to have a permaculture garden, but just don't find the time to.
I would need help outdoors with the donkeys & fruit trees (essentially peach&hazelnut, about 50 trees) and why not restart a garden for cooking herbs etc (f.ex. little garden with all the plants I use in the soaps...).
I have a little baby and almost never find the time to cook when my bigger children -both 11 years old- are at their daddys place, so somebody liking to cook would appreciated:-)

You will have a little appartment above the soap kitchen (but it's not 100% finished yet...), free internet & phone to "téléphones fixes" in Europe, but best would be a own car we are 5km away from the village and I only have one car.

We had 3 helpexchangers here between 2007-2010, a young english couple who came back 3 times, a japanese artist and a german friend. They stayend between 3 weeks and 3 months. As I cancelled my ancient account during... more inside

We run a small gite property and have quite a lot of land. Would love some help with Saturday bed changing & weeding the vegetable plot. Our eldest son has Asperger's (form of autism) so need someone happy to discuss movies all day, every day! We're about an hour from the Atlantic surfing beaches & 90 minutes drive from the Pyrenees mountains, Bordeaux city, Pau & Biarritz. We're in the heart of the countryside so transport is necessary.

We have four holiday gites and could do with some help with general maintenance and gardenning, chopping wood, painting and decorating, pool cleaning etc. We need someone who is willing to much in and help for several hours a day and possibly some weekends if we need help with cleaning gites in the Summer months but there would be plenty of time off to enjoy this wonderful part of France a nice bedroom with en-suite bathroom and home cooking. We are easy-going and flexible. Pyrenees mountains and Surfing beaches all within an hour and lovely little town approx 3 km away with bars etc.Biarritz, Pau and Spain all within an hour. Good transport links.
