Hi, we are a couple living near Eauze in South-west France. Our house is a 200 year old colombage farmhouse that was until recently an Armangac producers home. We are looking for help with some general building work,decorating and general garden work. In the garden we are looking to build some terracing, render columbage walls, building hard ornamental structures then generally planting and sorting in preparation for the summer. The garden is in fact - a start from scratch project. Overall, the house is "work in progress" but very habitable and comfy. We are offering a comfy room with food in exchange for help. We are open to negociation with regards to hours. We have wifi. The house sits on the very famous walk of St Jacques de Compostelle and is quiet and peaceful with great views southwards towards the Pyrenees.

Builders, competent DIY-ers, handyman/woman wanted.

We are Jim & Lucy Fisher, a friendly English couple running a holiday home and cookery school in the beautiful Dordogne.

We need help with repairing and maintaining our stone outbuildings: they are in a poor state and require repair, maintenance and, in some cases, a bit of rebuilding.

There is also general maintenance to do in the restored parts of our property, ie repair tiling, showers, etc.

Food, independent centrally-heated private en-site accommodation, clothes washing and Sky TV are included. In fact, you'll be staying in our lovely independent gite normally reserved for paying customers.

Hello and thank you for looking at my profile. I am looking for someone to help me in my everyday life as a handicapped person. I look for someone who speaks enough French so that we can understand each other. You can help me by driving my car that is adapted to transport me in my electric wheelchair, feed the chimney with fire wood, help outside, like gardening, diy, cutting wood.
I live in the countryside in the wooded and wild Dordogne, on a property of 2 hectares.
I offer a room on the first floor with separate bathroom and toilet, the meals, and help in deepening the knowledge of the French language (I give courses in French to non-French Europeans living in the Dordogne).

Salut et merci de regarder mon profil. Je propose l'accueil a un francophone dynamique et curieux (ou a quelqu'un d'une autre nationalite qui parle un peu le francais) pour m'aider dans ma vie quotidienne de personne handicapee. Je suis une femme de 56 ans.
Tu peux m'aider a: conduire ma voiture, alimen... more inside

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**

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 :-)
