We are looking for helpers who have experience in baby-sitting. It would also be good if you possess some cleaning and cooking skills, since you will be welcomed to help us with cleaning and cooking. Cleaning and cooking is optional, only if you want to, overall the house is very clean all the time, we are only 2 adults, so cooking is not going to be much of a trouble.

We are a young couple with a baby and we also run our own business online. Our young boy requires a lot of attention and that's the reason why we are looking for a bit of help.

We live in the center of Avranches, and although it's not a big town, you can enjoy everything from walking distance. Also, tourist attractions are easily accessible from where we are located.

We will provide free accommodation to helpers as we have a spare room. We speak English and French at home so you can use us as an opportunity to practice any of those two languages

I am an older American woman who has lived in france for 10 years. I have a house in Cordes sur Ciel, one of the Bastides of France...a fascinating and gorgeous town in SW France. In 2009, I had a devastating fire in the house and the insurance didn't pay for more than 2 years. For the past year,I have been renovating.

We are not looking for help at the moment, thanks for looking;


Hi,
We live in rural Poitou Charente in a small hamlet. We have 3 boys Harry 11, Hayden 7 and George 6.
We are English but all of us speak French and the boys go to a French school. Life is rather busy as I split my time between the family and running the house and of course, the animals. Also, I run a small dog sitting and grooming business.

We have 7 horses and a foal that was born on 31 May,we ride and ride/drive the 2 ponies, We have 5 goats 3 females that i milk but am waiting for them to kid so not milking at the moment, lots of chickens so lots of beautiful fresh eggs and 3 pigs, as well as the dogs and cats.

We are renovating our house and raising the roof by 1m. We have completed one side but are going to start the other side this summer, any help with this would be fantastic, blockwork, roofing then when thats completed, stud walling, plumbing, plastereing etc inside.

NOW: A very kind farmer has cut the worst of the weeds using his tractor.The place is looking so much better. Had a fun w/e celebrating Bastille day (Le quatorize) locally. No work today as it is Trisha's birthday.

We arrived on the 8th and the first job was to clear the huge weeds that have grown with all the sun and rain over the last two months. They are everywhere and the main offenders are 5 or 6 feet high! It will take us many days, I think. We could really do with some help :-)

We do have a singe bed and a non-tent place for a helper to stay. Do come and help us - Please.

LAST YEAR: we bought a pair of houses and barns in the Charente region of France and have started working towards making it our permanent home.
There are lots of things to do, including put in stairs, make rooms upstairs (previously grain stores), painting, repairing stone work and pointing, plumbing, electrics etc. The roof and walls are sound. There are also good sized gardens to plant an... more inside

The place :

We are an Anglo/ French couple,(we speak French between ourselves), and we are currently doing up an old house in the centre of the village of Sommieres, which is a pretty, Medieval town on the banks of a small river. We are going to create 2 appartments in the building, the top one with a roof terrace.. So far we have redone the roof, the fašade, and replaced all the windows. We are now finishing off the bathroom on the second floor, so at least one floor will be livable. the whole of the third floor needs doing, at the moment it's just a big empty room with a mezzanine, so we need to make a kitchen and bathroom up there. We also need to do a concrete floor downstairs. We do not live on site at the moment, we live about 45mins away, so you can stay with us, and we'll drive over there. We have a futon bed in a spare room for you, plus your own bathroom downstairs, so its suitable for a couple if you're both willing to work. Its a very old stone house, and we are using old traditiona... more inside
