This is camping accommodation as the house is being renovated. Minimum of 2 hours of help per day with the renovation work in exchange for camping here.

This is a beautiful smallholding of mixed woodland and meadow, a house and some outbuildings. It's a wonderful place for all kinds of wildlife.

I'm doing a lot of work this season on things like - french drains, grey water wetland, compost toilets, lime mortaring, and rebuilding stone outbuildings - a wash-house and compost toilet block.

Facilities are basic - compost toilet system and outdoor shower - solar and wood fired water heating available from beginning of May.

I'm looking for helpers staying for 2-5 days. It would be great to have you if this eco-project is your cup of tea!

We are currently renovating a Breton Longere in the heart of the Breton countryside.
The renovation and family life means that so far we have been unable to tackle a piece of land adjacent to our property which is now overgrown and needs to be taken in hand.
We are offering one/two bedrooms with shower room accessed via a seperate staircase to the main upstairs space and meals in exchange for 4 hours work per day clearing the land & odd jobbing such as chopping wood..
We would also welcome anyone with dry stone walling experience as we have a wall in place which is in a state of disrepair and needs rebuilding.

We are renovating a 17th century farmhouse in a beautiful part of rural Normandy. At the same time we are working on taming the land and hope one day to be completely self-sufficient. We raise kune kune pigs and sheep for meat. Last summer we introduced bees to the orchard and were delighted with our first harvest of honey.

Projects for 2011 include:-
1. Finishing the kitchen. We are building all the units ourselves from 100 year old oak.
2. design, lay out and planting of a formal herb garden for cullinary & medicinal purposes.
3. completion of construction of entrance extension to include a wet room suitable for the disabled. We are currently up to 1st floor height.
4. repair and cladding of animal accommodation.
5. rebuilding of stonework surrounding the well.

We are a very recently-retired english couple who bought this (just over an) acre of land in 2004 and have built a 4-bed / 3.5 bath house on it.

We are very rural, served by small roads from surrounding towns. Minor town is 4km away, major town 17km with cinema etc. Our commune contains about 300 people of whom probably 30 are English or Dutch. This is typical of this area; remember, the whole area of Aquitaine was under English rule for many years in the 13th to 15th centuries.

The area is very active, particularly in the Summer at weekends. The weather is between UK and Spain - i.e. long summers, hot but not often scorching. Short Winters, half of December, all January, half February approx.

Bergerac airport, (20 minutes away from us) has budget services to UK. We would collect and return, of course.

There are many good eating places in Eymet, 4km, with a pizzeria, Chinese, and a variety of restaurants if you get tired of our excellent cuisine.

The area attracts a ... more inside

We've got:
10 hectares, mainly pasture
Dogs, cats, chickens, geese, horses, ducks
Lots of work to do both inside and out
Beer, wine and good food
Veg garden
Small lake for a spot of fishing
Wifi

You've got:
Enthusiasm
A good sense of humour
The willingness to get stuck in

We are an English couple that speak English and embarrassingly poor French. I'm an ex-nurse with a dream of self sufficiency and the 'good life' and my other half is a web designer so spends far too much time in front of a computer.

We are both meat eaters but happy to cook for vegetarians.

Feel free to get in touch and ask questions

We're in rural France so don't expect pubs and clubs but do expect peace, quiet and a warm welcome. There are a lot of interesting places to visit in the area - Rochechouart, Oradour Sur Glane, Limoges and St Junien is our closest major town. If you haven't got your own transport (we can lend you bikes) we normally go to the odd market or similar once a week a... more inside

Accommodation and meals in one of the rooms in our bed and breakfast in exchange for help in the garden, mainly tidying up the boundary, grass mowing and some help with building a pergola

Flexible 4 hours per day for 1 or 2 (couple sharing a double bed) in our house and all meals, use of bicycles and WIFI. All food where possible is home grown or locally sourced.

Bicycle engineering skills may be an advantage.

We are a remote b&b, in the centre of France, the nearest town is La Charite, 15km although there are small villages on route, so would suit a couple/person who enjoys wildlife and slow pace of life.

We are english and speak french as well, althogh if you are wishing to improve your french language skills it may sometimes be a 2 way process. We have a dog, cats and chickens and through the summer months we accept guests of all nationalities and cultures.
