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

Hello, I live in a peaceful town, close to Paris, my flat and my mother's house require some work (paint, wallpaper and depending on your skills a little plumbing and masonry). Work would focus instead on the weekend and you will have a lot of leisure to visit Paris or Versailles. I offer the bedroom. For the meals, we will see in terms of our agreements. I'd prefer English or Russian-speaking people and non-smokers.

We are Ged and Karen, an English couple with a young daughter looking for a couple of able bodies and minds to help with a brand new project. Having lived around the world, from Moscow to Kuala Lumpur it is time to settle in one place for a while!

Our vision is to develop a mixed smallholding with a small eco campsite. What we are starting with is a beautiful property (already renovated), three hectares (7 acres) of attached land, gorgeous views in the South of the Loire region and importantly a good stock of wine :)

The property is a peaceful 4km bike ride from Neuvy-Saint-Sepulchre where you’ll find bars restaurants, shops and a beautiful fishing lake. We are also very close to a bus route allowing access to the beautiful old towns of Aregnton-sur-Creuse (train station), Le Chatre and Chateauroux(train station). We are also located very close to the Brenne Nation Park, with its ‘thousand lakes’ and parkland it’s a nature lovers paradise.

The work will be varied and int... more inside

Bridget and Neil living and working on 16 acres of land growing vegatables, trees and grapes. In between, a renovation project to the existing buildings and construction of a new timber framed barn. The barn will be fabricated using green Douglas Fir (Oregon Pine). All in the old Charentaise style. We also have a dog called Jack who is probably the best and nicest dog in the whole world!

The highlights of the year are:-
- the fire wook quota (Oak and Chestnut from own woods)
- the vegetable and fruit harvest along with preserving and freezing
- the making of Pineau (a fortified wine approx 17% alcohol)
- last but not least Bridget and I are both musicians playing traditional Celtic music, folk and whatever takes our fancy.

We have a cottage in rural Normandy, Dept 61, which we are in the process of renovating. We have a project of plasterboarding and plastering two rooms, ceilings and walls, that we would like completed. There is also a small flat pack kitchen to be installed. This would suit a couple / friends / group who have good practical skills and experience. Materials and tools would be supplied.
In exchange, we are offering free sole use of the cottage for 3 weeks whilst the work was in progress. The date of availability is flexible. This is time for the project to be completed and still allow plenty of free time to enjoy the cultural delights of this lovely area. We are between medieval and spa towns and 50 miles north of Le Mans. The cottage has a sofa bed and camp beds, cooking facilities, a renovated bathroom and two bicycles.
If interested, we do have another project of plasterboarding and plastering the attic.
All negotiable.
