I live in a charming 18th century farmhouse in rural france which is in the process of being renovated (by me!). Ideally, I am looking for someone who is a capable diyer or builder to help finish renovation work. You must like cats and dogs as I have quite a few. Board and lodging would be in the house in exchange for about 20 hours work per week. Accommodation would be pretty basic but I am a pretty good cook! I can offer access to broadband internet, free phone to landlines. Shops, cinema, swimming pool and train are all in the nearest town which is 8km away. I am inbetween 2 villages (each 5km away) which have basic facilities. I do live a pretty quiet life but have plenty of books, dvds and cds to amuse. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss helping out.

Hello,
The place is in a mountain area (1500m in altitude), in a nice, pleasant, and typical small village and famous in winter for the ski area, called Serre Chevalier.
I need some temporary helps in the appartment, to destroy the cheminey and install instead a wood stove, and other minor things. I offer a bedroom and food, depending how you want to organize your journey. I leave the choice to work many hours daily to finish as soon as possible, or a few hours daily and stay longer and to take advantage of great activities proposed around (climbing, mountaineering, etc...). I live alone, I am 40 yold (female) and my partner is 45min from here so sometimes not at home or sometimes 2 at home.
This proposal because i am very busy, and I need time to go climbing and other mountain activities, as well.(you will be welcome). and I love to speak english!
If you are a climber it would be perfect !
period preferred : from september

We run a Chambres d'hotes in the volcanic Auvergne region of central France. We have 2 young donkeys who are looking forward to going out for lots of walks in the area. We are looking for someone to help out with some of their schooling, therefore, someone with some equine experience. Other duties would consist of light household jobs and gardening. Anything else would be dependent on your DIY skills. We would also prefer if you are either side of July and August - outside of the main holiday season.
If you enjoy mountain biking and walking, the area is full of lovely views. There is also plenty to do in the area - paper and cutlery museums, lots of bird life, or just peace and quiet!
If this sounds like it could be for you, please get in touch - we look forward to meeting you!

Do you like living peacefully but within easy access to all facilities. Look no further! I am offering free accommodation in a 300 yr old cottage in a visitors area in North Dordogne in return for a variety of practical help - ad hoc. Part time hours to be negotiated dependant on work that you are able to undertake. This can be short or long term stay over the next two years. You will have the property to yourselves as I live in UK and only return to France once a year at present.

For the next two years I have some work that requires doing. Most of it is quite light work and I'm not very demanding. The biggest job is retiling first story roof and tidying up dependance - a bit of rendering - keeping garden neat and tidy and some wooden decking around a swimming pool area. Also boarding internal roof with insulation.

The current cottage is two bedroomed 300 years old and has all amenities. The pic of the house was taken before the outside was painted and it now looks much nic... more inside
