Bonjour!

Oct/Nov 17: we would be happy to host a handyman/woman for outdoor work in the garden and/or light renovation. Thank you!

We are a french family, Christian (61), Rosine (51)and Lili (14) with 4 delightful pets: Jingle and Geisha, our enthusiastic dogs and Gable and Chapati, our delightful cats.
We used to travel world wide and now have settled down in a 19th century old farm in the beautiful countryside of Pamiers, Ariege.
I work as a teacher and Christian is a data consultant. Christian plays piano and guitar. I modele clay, papier mâché, paint, sew, do mosaic. Lili loves to draw.
We are 'bons vivants' as we say in french. Easy to meet, we appreciate good company and love foreigners!

Our farm is mostly renovated. However, we have many ongoing projects: fence work in the horses fields, clear up the stables, renovate the poultry house, some gardening to embellish the premisses.

Could be done as well : light painting, washing walls and ceilings, light eco-bui... more inside

Hello to you, and welcome to our HelpX info page. We hope you will find our page interesting, informative, and most of all, appealing to you.

Kath and I are down-to-earth Yorkshire ex-pats who would want to make you feel welcome, at home, & relaxed at our Belle Maison, which is about 150 years old. We live in the commune of St Pardoux, Deux-Sevres, in a very small and very quiet hamlet of just 4 families. We have Lucas, a friendly border collie, and Loupie, the cat. St Pardoux is 8km away from the historical town of Parthenay. Poitiers is just over an hour's drive away, with Tours, La Rochelle and Nantes being about 90 minutes away . May we remind potential helpers that it really is a very quiet area where we live.

Help is needed in our garden. Getting it back into shape for the summer. Little or no digging will be required, but plenty of grunting, lifting and shifting. We are not looking for inexperienced helpers. The more experience you have, the better, and the more likel... more inside

Immediate space available for the next two weeks, due to cancellation.
Welcome to our animal park in SW France. Looking for a last minute summer tan in the sunny South of France? We have space currently for someone / or two friends to help with winter preperations. Stacking wood in the wood shed, clearing hedging and the vegetable patch, helping clean out when the park is open, and generally mucking in with everyday jobs.

The work is pretty heavy so would suit someone fit and strong at a minimum able to carry a 25 kilo bag of animal feed.
You will have your own bedrooms, in the cottage attached to the house with bathroom / shower, use of washing machine and all meals prepared for you.

Sorry but we cannot take families, couples or children either.

A very warm welcome awaits in a unique setting of the House of Camels, in the grounds of what used to be a former monastery but is now an animal park. We live in an 8 bed-roomed farm house an hour north of the Pyrenees,

Bonjour
Nous sommes Corinne et François, 61 et 70 ans. Nous habitons dans la belle campagne bocagère de l'Argentonnais entre Angers, Nantes et Poitiers., dans l'ouest de la France.
Depuis 2010 nous rénovons notre grande et très ancienne maison de manière écologique avec des matériaux de provenance proche.
Nous recevons des groupes pour les vacances, et organisons des stages de formation (toujours en lien avec la nature et la créativité en toute simplicité, consulter notre site pour plus de détails : www.latourdauzay.fr).
Nous demandons aux helpers de nous aider pour la rénovation : poncer les poutres ou les tomettes, peindre, ou pour le jardin : planter des arbres, cultiver le potager, ou pour couper du bois.
Nous avons des poules, des oies et deux brebis et un bélier dont il faut s'occuper aussi.
Nous prêtons des bicyclettes pour les promenades environnantes, il y a aussi de nombreux chemins pour marcher.
Nous sommes contents de rencontrer des jeunes helpers désireux de c... more inside

Hi, we have lots of work that needs doing, mostly general maintenance, but also more skilled, such as electric's, plumbing and roofing. At the moment the barn roof is the most urgent. We are hoping to start on this in the Spring when we need to take off old tiles, repair/replace timbers and then put corrugated roof panels on. After that just cover with some of the tiles. If you have any experience of roofing or general building and don't mind heights and fancy a few weeks break in France in the Spring (it can be lovely weather from about February onwards) then please get in touch. We have plenty of room here for you and in return for your work we will supply bed and meals plus a few beers! If you are a couple then there could possibly be work for two people, I need some rooms decorated and help sorting out all our "junk!" .Thanks for looking

We are John and Patricia, a Dutch couple, who live in Normandy. We speak Dutch and English( and understand German) but from our French you get tears in your eyes.....
So for people who want to improve their French this is probably not the best place to come.....Or you take a 5 minute walk to the local village where ALL people speak French and are very friendly. There are some bars but no night entertainment.
But if you are looking for a beautiful green quiet part of France, this is your place.

Physically and mentally fit people wanted who like to ( help us) maintain a large exciting domain. Come and be part of our family, when we are busy doing our day to day duties. You don't live in our house but have a separate house for yourself, so lots of privacy for you and also for us ;-)
Due to some bad experiences with helpers who saw our place as a cheap resort we now only take helpers with former experience and references.
We like to welcome people who understand the concept of... more inside

We are Simon (47 years old, timber framer with a small recycling business) and Frauke (51 years old, musician and amateur film maker), with two grown up daughters, both of whom are studying art, and home from time to time. Living in the beautiful Gers countryside (between Bordeaux and Toulouse), we have a large organic garden and orchard. We have dogs, cats and some geese with occasional aggression management issues.
We are looking for four hours help a day in the house, garden, and with the odd building project. No experience is necessary but smiles & enthusiasm are always welcome! We have a large wood and metal workshop, bicycles that can be borrowed, internet access available, a ping pong table, and in the summer a small swimming pool. As for accommodation, we have a room in the house to offer. We are more than happy to cater for vegetarians.We both enjoy playing music ( drums and guitar) and would welcome anyone who fancies a jam of an evening.
Looking forward to meeting you!
