This year we are looking for help with the construction of a terrace/patio and with woodland maintenance. Accommodation will be in a very comfortable caravan, with meals eaten together in the farmhouse.

We are a British couple who have lived in the north of Pays de la Loire for 9 years, trying to be as self-sufficient as possible (given the limitations of the size of our small holding - >2 ha- and our advancing years - 60's!!). We have 2 very large vegetable plots, a large poly-tunnel, chickens, as well as 3 dogs and 2 yard cats. English is spoken all the time, and we have adequate French for conversation and everyday circumstances. We are happy to help improve your English.

Our smallholding is surrounded by countryside, both fields and forest (the nearest neighbour is 600m away). The property is bounded by a small stream. The nearest shop, boulangerie and hotel/restaurant are 7km away. We are equidistant (13 km) from Bauge, La Fleche and Le Lude, all of which have f... more inside

We are 3 young women (from 21 to 39 y.o) living in a big house with a big and great garden.
And here is the point : we need help to take care of this grass, trees, bambous, vegetables etc... we'd like to organise a place for some hens too.
Well, we work around 8 and 10 hours a day out of the house, so it's too difficult for us to deal with everything.

We are fond of sport, traveling, reading, meeting people, tasting foreign cuisine, listening to music = discovering different ways of life !

You are a boy or a girl, from north, east, west or south, our house is yours for one month minimum if you like it :D

You help us 4 hours a day, and you can go wherever you want the rest of the time ^^.
(We are 30min south from Paris, almost in the middle of nowhere but not really lol, surrounded by horse riding schools, country..).

Sometimes, we take the car and our tents to go to see the sea or mountains, if you want to come with us, it's our pleasure :D

We'd prefer to host... more inside

Marielle 53 ans & Fred 50 ans, nous vivons dans un cadre exceptionnel sur une commune de 200 habitants, à 1500 mètres d'altitude dans les alpes du Sud (très ensoleillées) c'est un paradis de la randonnée et des activités de montagne. Nous parlons le français et très peu l'anglais.Nous vivons de notre entreprise artisanale (fabrication d'objets en bois).En parallèle nous tendons vers l'autonomie alimentaire et cultivons un grand potager avec une serre. Nous faisons notre miel, notre choucroute, notre pain, notre savon, notre lessive, notre bois ... Un chat, deux oies, trois poules nous tiennent compagnie. Nous habitons dans la grange aménagée d'une maison montagnarde sous lequel nous disposons d'un autre appartement indépendant.
Les valeurs que nous partageons sont voisines de celles du mouvement des colibris.
L'automne venant de nombreuses tâches nous attendent. Rentrer du bois de chauffage (abattage, débardage, tronçonnage, fendage, empilage...) et les récoltes du potager ainsi q... more inside

You will be accommodated in a hut. It is situated a few meters away from the small main house on a very raised ground. The ground is a steep slope and comes down towards the lake of Vezin, the access is possible up to a pontoon to practise the fishing or the navigation there.
From the house and the cabin the view on the valley and the lake is magnificent.

If you need a restfull retreat, it's the place to find inspiration.

The house is about 2 km from the nearest small village with a café-épicerie. Ths nearest city, Saint-Hilaire du Harcouët is about 7 km and provides all kind of shops and services and also a famous weekly market on Wednesday morning.

If you are on a hiking, backpacking, cycling, campervan, solarplane tour you can stop by for a short stay.
I speak English but if you want to practice french you are welcome.

The tasks and the works that could be done in exchange :
Keep on making the bungalow comfortable for the further helpers.

We are restoring a fabulous castle with 365 windows that still badly need TLC : putty, linseed oil, varnish... April, May, June, September, October are usually fine. July and August are not a time when works can be done at the chateau as visitors are around.
We would be very glad to welcome one or two people who are fond of old places and heritage. There are lots of other things that need doing as well. If you like refurbishing, if you are good at clearing up, carpentering, plumbering or gardening... you'll have lots to keep you busy !
We live in the South West of France, the Dordogne, in an area where there is lots to visit and enjoy.
We don't actually live in the chateau (so there is some travelling involved) but in town which is nice because Périgueux is a lovely little city right in the center of the Dordogne.
You will be able to share our family life with our teenaged daughter. We often have our children and grand-children during the holidays.
We speak both French & E... more inside

I live in a house in the Beaujolais,cherry orchards, vines, horses in the field opposite - it's very peaceful here.
There are buses every half hour to Lyon 25km, to Villefranche-sur-Saône 13km. The area is very beautiful, and I can show you around, meet some local people and see what you you might not see otherwise.

I can host short-term in exhange for some practical help around the house and garden, and perhaps other odd jobs like painting.

I'm English, speak fluent French and a bit of Spanish and Italian. A mother of three and a grandmother, I try to keep up with modern ideas - even technology etc!

I have set foot in all the continents, spending more time in some than others. I'm 'international',and enjoy meeting people wherever they're from.

I believe that the idea of HelpX is great, it can help build relationships across and around the world, if everyone contributes in that same light...And I do my bit as best I can!
