We have decided to try and speed up renovation work on our semi-ruined farmhouse property in a small hamlet close to Albi and Gaillac (Tarn). The pool is in, so is a big kitchen and dining room, bedroom, office, shower room and bathroom - the essentials! But there is still a lot to do and we are not getting any younger... We need help with stonework – in particular we have a project to build a low stone wall along the back of the pool (see picture) and point the existing stonework on one of the pinion walls (about 20m2) we would also like to finish building up the stone cladding on the back wall (see photo). The paving around the pool is set in sand rather than concrete and this year we need to re-seat them as quite a few have moved... they weigh 20 kilos a piece so this involves heavy lifting! The list is long and of course we can’t expect to get it all done this year – the final list of jobs would depend on the skills you have. We also need to get on with some of the inside work (... more inside

We recently discovered HelpX & we thought what a great idea to help us make progress with our renovation of stone buildings which make up a hamlet here in the middle of France.
We have lived here for 14 years with our 2 sons ( 15 & 18) having met in Amsterdam. They are bilingual in French & English & one of us speaks good Dutch but has little practice.
Three of the buildings are finished (our home & 2 holiday rentals) & our intention is to convert more buildings into accomodation and possibly establishing "eco cabins" or teepees in the 5 hectares of woodland & pastures that surround the buildings. (This is where joining helpX comes in). To give you a better idea of what we are trying to achieve please look at our website.
We all enjoy meeting new people. We have travelled quite a bit & are happy to share our experiences & knowledge with others.
We're looking for help in developing & maintaining our stone buildings, extensive grounds & woodland. Helpers could stay in our holi... more inside

I would like to invite you to spend some time in this magnificent area in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
The mount 'Canigou' seems planted at the edg of my garden,2874 m above the sealevel and sacred for all Catalans.Looking on Prades as from a balkony,a pleasant house to live.
Every 23th of June 'la trobada' assembles Catalans from the north as from the south (Spain), a huge fire is made on top and brought down to multiples towns and villages where there's music and dancing celebrating summer solstice.
While staying at my place I'd love you to discover all this, easy and so cheap ( for 1 euro one way ride on bus or train) trough the whole department!
I will need trees to be cut and other cleaning up, having experience with a chainsaw is a plus!
Otherwise some gardening, mending the acces to the site, install an irrigation system(drip), vetg garden, little jobs on an around the house...
Accomodation in the house or tent, according to what's available.
I ask 5 ... more inside

September 2017

I am looking for a 25yr old + English speaking helper who must be able to drive (stick shift preferred) to help look after 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son.

Need help with shopping, school run and child-minding.

Also plenty to do around the house and garden if that's your thing.

-------

We are a family of three; John (dad), Lucie and Douglas. We have lived in Ceret in the south of France since July 2012.

Mum recently passed away so dad is coping on his own and could use some practical help.

John is British but has a business in Australia and gets back there a once a year to work. Lucie and Douglas were born in Australia.

Lucie is 12 years old and Douglas is 10 years. We are a bilingual family, but we speak more English than French at home.

You can eat and live with the family, but in general, there will be plenty of free time.

We also have a forest that we are converting into an orchard if you are interested in agriculture.

Hi, we are a family living in rural SW France with dogs, a cat and chickens. It’s a beautiful and remote part of the world.

I'm looking for someone to come for at least a week and up to a month or even more if we get on!
For help around around the house and garden; some light decorating, digging and clipping in the garden.

Salut,

(text in english under the text in french)

nous serions heureux de vous accueillir dans notre petite vallée nichée dans les montagnes des cévennes ardéchoises. Au coeur de la forêt et de la nature, auprès d'une belle rivière, nous sommes dans un lieu sauvage et nous aimons recevoir du monde pour partager notre vie et ce petit paradis. Nous sommes très sociables et accessibles et

pouvons aussi être un peu sauvage parfois et avoir besoin d'un peu de temps pour nous.

Nous restaurons une maison, faisons du jardin, travaillons avec les plantes médicinales et comestibles, l'un fait quelques chantiers bois, l'autre conte et anime des cercles. Il y a un troupeau de brebis et 2 mulets, chiens, chats, poules,...

L'accueil se fait en tente à la belle saison, nous avons des tentes à prêter, et il y a pleins de très beaux endroits où camper. Nous aimerions faire des petites cabanes pour avoir plus de lieux pour accueillir.

Si vous aimeriez filez un coup de main, partag... more inside

Help currently required: We're looking for some help in May with some work in the garden (help with fencing, weeding, prep) and potentially inside the house too.

Seven years ago I was a marketing student in Spain. Depressed and extremely unconfident about myself, an amazing and horrifying experience took place in my life, taking away from me everything. No more hope, no more dreams, no more sense, no more life.

And then, Life came in. With all its Magic, with all its Love.

I quited my studies, came to France, and travelled for a couple of years around Europe and Asia, following an inner force that guided me towards a more human and nature loving existence. People, permaculture, biointensive gardening, yoga, meditation, healthy food, music, all came into me with such an obvious and important place in what started to become a happy, simple, rich and meaningful path.

Two years ago I bought 1 hectare of magic land, and started to create a food forest. Since march 2017, I have 3 more hectares in which I'm setting a biointensive garden and a food forest combined with a miniature cob village specially created to connect children, but not... more inside

...UPDATE... We are unexpectedly in need of one or two helpers from early June (4th or 5th) until the end of June. There will be some preparation of holiday accommodation, chicken care and some outside gardening work. In addition, we will be away for a few days during that time, and will need someone here to look after the property in our absence.

We are a Simon and Suzanne, a British couple running holiday accommodation in the Pyrenees from a large property with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In our fourteen years here we have welcomed holidaymakers from all over the world and introduced them to our lovely area, and many have returned to visit us several times. Our two children are now in their 20s and no longer live here.

In our 5 hectares of grounds we keep geese, ducks and chickens for eggs and/or meat. Completing the menagerie are two dogs and two cats.

Outside the main summer season, we would like volunteers to stay for a minimum of two weeks, but thi... more inside
