We are an English family of three with a toddler 'Dexter' (born 20/12/2010). We moved to France from Bristol in September 2007. We also have an 18 month old dog - Jazz (boxer-cross) who is full of energy.

Paul is a yoga teacher and teaches in french and English - we have our own yoga studio here and we run Iyengar yoga retreats every year. I am an English teacher. I teach the French army and run English intensives for french children during the holidays. So extra work can be exchanged for either yoga lessons or English lessons - if wanted.

We really enjoy sharing our place with people and want to help make our garden and the surrounding areas feel more established, managed and beautiful.

We have just bought a piece of beautiful woodland and so need help clearing and managing it - to make paths for walks and a tasteful parking area.

We would greatly apppreciate any help (even if just for a few days) to help move on our woodland project. We enjoy meeting new pe... more inside

Work :
Our American au pair who appears on the picture, is leaving soon. We are looking for a single preferably anglophone female child helper for at least 4 or 6 weeks each time (as we are on holiday every 6 weeks). But it can also be for a longer period. We would like a fun, caring, trustworthy, loving person to look after our 10 year old daughter and our Yorkshire dog.
And please, when we are at work, don't stay in your room while our daughter is on her own : the point of all this is based on linguistic and social exchange !
We like good manners, politeness and quiet people! I mean not people singing in our ears when we come back from work in the evening !
You would be going to fetch Emma at school at 11.30 in the morning and then take her back to school at 1.30 pm until 4.30 three or four times a week (monday, tuesday and friday). The childcare would be also useful on some evenings : very few in fact as we will gladly take you with us to most parties !

We are Tony and Heather, an active retired couple who live in a 5 bedroomed Longere in 5 acres of land (not a farm), part woodland with a stream; pasture, orchard and garden, in rural surrounds, area 56, Brittany. The hamlet is called Tellene; it has a bar/restaurant and access to good walking and riding country. Tellene is situated 15 mins from Baud and 30 mins from Josselyn. There is no public transport from the hamlet. We are non-smokers and have no language skills other than English.

The help we require is General Maintenance with the land, wood, garden and house. The most of the maintenance in the house has been completed so house is not a building site. The next project is to build a barn to house tractor, hay and straw. So we would require somebody with DIY skills who has woodworking knowledge; also who could help with fencing, gardening and woodland maintenance. It would be great if you also had an A level in poo picking!!!
We would consider a couple or single person ... more inside

Jobs to be done clearing some land, re-building a barn and stable.General maintenance. Looking after the animals. We have quad,trailers etc for removing stone walls,earth etc. We are looking for someone with experience preferable although there is quite a bit of general muscle work...

We prefer to speak French as not all of the family speak English. We're very happy to help those who enjoy practising their French conversation, however rudimentary. Written communication is fine in English if it's easier.

We're a small family living on 2.5 hectares of meadow and woodland in the hills around the beautiful mountain of Bugarach.

We have quite a low impact way of life with compost/dry toilets, 12v renewable power and a vegetable garden that provides most of our food. The mains water supply is very restricted but we do have a beautiful roll-top firebath in the beginnings of a bathroom (another project) that overlooks the mountains. We have two pigs (not for eating) and any number of chickens, ducks and cats.

We live quite close to/amongst nature & spend nearly all of the summer outside. We have a couple of cabins for the family & there is a cabin (small), caravan (large) & tents for friends & HelpXers. We also have a levelled clearing that has been used for Yur... more inside

Martin and I live in a lovely villa with a swimming pool and garden with stunning views of the Pyrenees, and we are looking for someone (1 or 2) who can help us a little around the house and garden (we are not fanatically clean and tidy), with the 2 children (15, 17) who are at school and self sufficient, and chatting to Grandma (91) in English! Also need help with restoring a barn and a house, experience of renovating old property would be good!
We are all English but speak French too.
The house is 2km from the market town of Prades, and 45 minutes from Perpignan airport, walking distance to the train station and bus stop.

Currently looking for some help with gardening and cleaning to get the property ready for the season.

We have an old 18th century farm house, which we rent out, set just outside the stunning rural village of Queyssac Les Vignes. We live in the barn next door. Helpers would stay in this farm house, which has all the amenities and wifi use. Meals would be taken together with us in the barn however, apart from breakfast where bread and cereals etc will be provided. Our website will give you an idea of the accomodation. At certain times of the year we are looking for help in the garden, in the woods and to close up the house/pool for winter and open her up again in the spring. Gardening, maintenance work like painting shutters, Logging up, moving stone and building dry stone walls are the kinds of jobs we would do. The heated pool is still open and canoeing on the dordogne goes on until about the 15th oct so something fun to do on days off! There are lots of stunning walks in the ... more inside
