We are an English family consisting of myself, husband and 19 year old daughter. We moved to France ten years ago. Our home is a three hundred year old farmhouse situated on the outskirts of the historic and picturesque town of Villedieu les Poeles in Lower Normandy. The town is a 25 minute stroll or 10 minute cycle away.
We have two acres of garden consisting of outbuildings, orchard and an abundance of trees. We keep goats, chickens and sheep. We share our home with three friendly dogs and three cats.
We host French students during the school holidays. I hold a TEFL qualification to teach English so I'm happy to help foreign helpers to improve their English. I'm a qualified artist.
In exchange for full board including meals we require help with general domestic duties and help with maintenance of the garden. This would include grass cutting, pruning, weeding, maintenance of outdoor buildings plus help with animals and assistance with heavier jobs.
I am an enthusiastic cook ... more inside

Hello, we are a belgian couple (Kim, 34 and Oliver, 45) who started a sustainable living project 6 years ago on a small old farm with a ciderorchard and a lovely little stream. We also have a daughter Lila (5 years old).

A big permaculture garden is giving us a lot of delicious fruit and veggies, two adorable donkeys are maintaining the grass and the chickens give us eggs.

By now we’ve accumulated a zoo consisting of one dog, two donkeys, three cats, four guinea pigs , lots of chickens and an uncertain amount of goldfish!

While Oliver is a sensitive soul, who loves gardening, the art of tai chi and talking about the world behind the scenes, Kim is a passionate mommy, healer and scientist who also enjoys the beauty of nature and arts, right now she's working long hours at the coast. Lila is a homeschooled little miss, who's enjoying living close to nature, and exploring the world!

RIGHT NOW we are looking for somebody to help us pick and freeze the cherries and berries ... more inside

Hello!

My name is Ursula, I live on a 4 hectare property with my daughter Lisa, our dog Balto and two horses, Djoura and her little friend Miel, the neighbour’s poney.
I am often alone and am in need of some help with the animals and in the garden.
The property is next to a beautiful forest, so for those who enjoy going for walks our house is perfect for you! I have many friends in the surrounding countryside who you will probably meet, and I would love to have someone who is happy to care for the dog and horses with me. Helpers with independent spirits (and maybe a drivers license too) are the happiest here.

I also have some other friends (on different farms/ properties) who sometimes take in some of my Helpers too. Sabine, for example, has a black-pig farm near the Pyrenees and Cornelia has 10 horses, chickens, cats and dogs on the hillside surrounded by an amazing view on the mountains all around.
There may be an opportunity for helpers to spend some time at their hous... more inside

Geraldine and Richard have owned and run a centre for health and healing on Mount Tamborine, Queensland Australia for nearly 20 years. We are in the process of building a similar centre in the Languedoc South of France where we need help with light building and gardening. Accommodation is indoors with showers and hot water. All meals are provided.
Where possible we use sustainable and 'green' building techniques.
The use of random (uncut) stone and lime mortar has minimal
and even positive effects on the environment.
We ensure that the timber used is either sustainably grown or recycled.
Our aim is to create a space where groups can come to learn a range of creative, experiential and spiritual activities in a safe and peaceful environment.
We will welcome people of all nationalities, faiths and spiritual beliefs to share this facility.
Subjects which we hope to encourage will include; yoga,art,dance, astrology, meditation and healing.
We have now finished the building of an... more inside

We are a busy English family of three living in rural France. We love the outdoor life and have chickens, cats, two naughty Weimeraners, three ponies and two horses. The ideal person we are looking for would be a horse loving person with a good background in general equine care, also a good basic riding ability is needed as you would need to exercise 1 horse & two ponies and take care of their daily needs. They all are ridden by our 11 year old daughter who is in the competition circuit doing Jumping, Dressage and Hunter.
Our daughter attends riding lessons at local equestrian centres twice during the week, Saturdays is training at home in our sand arena and the competitions are most Sundays so you would need to go along to the competitions to help out with the usual chaos. We are happy to provide riding lessons to improve your ability from good to great which could also involve you riding in the competitions if you wish. O.K so that's the fun part !

We are an English family some of who have lived in the area for 10+ years others are more recently arrived. We run a bike hire business from our Mill near Saumur.


We live in a Water Mill that we are renovating. The Mill is located 10 mins from Saumur and the Loire. There has been a Mill here for 300 years. We have lots of exciting ideas that cover lots of different skills and are very enthusiastic to turn them into reality. We have general tasks that anyone can do (cleaning, painting, gardening, assisting in building work) and would specifically love to hear from roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and welders.

Thanks for your interest

This beautiful, 2.5 hectare garden, set in the heart of Haute-Normandie Pays de Caux near the English Channel and whose light inspired the Impressionist movement, is called the Jardin d'art et d'essais and which can be loosely translated as an Arthouse garden.

This is not a run of the mill Help X destination. There is a real opportunity to learn and have a totally unique experience while staying in the 17th century Priory in the centre of the garden. Cécile Maitrot, the gardening artist or artistic gardener (she conforms to both), welcomes you to join her in this artistic gardening adventure.

Previous experience of gardening and some basic French are welcome but not essential as Cecile can get by in English, Spanish and German and will teach you all you need to know; the work, of course, changes with the seasons and can be a variety of brute force and delicate sensitivity but never forgetting that this is an artistic adventure and is open to the public. Help Xers are invited t... more inside
