Looking for long-term arrangement, starting this Spring. English couple (mid 40s) with a bilingual 7 yr old son. Our smallholding is in Brittany, just south of Mont St Michel and only 35 mins from St Malo ferry port. Its an old farm - we have pigs, sheep, poultry and rabbits. All of our animals are kept for food for our own consumption and we grow a lot of our own veg - with a large stone raised bed garden in progress to complete our veggie requirements!

We need help around the land mostly - upkeeping fencing, fighting back the brambles, and planting trees and maintenance of the woods, coppicing etc.

We are also renovating various parts of the property using traditional and eco-friendly building techniques and will always need a hand with that. One of us is an experienced stonemason, specialising in restoration of old buildings (churches, manors etc) using traditional materials - he can teach you all you need to know about stone and its uses (building, carving) and also ... more inside

Registered Angora goat farm, with sheep, pigs, chickens, geese etc. and four lovable working dogs. We live simply and almost entirely from our land - farmed using the principles of permaculture.

We've built our own house and all our outbuildings, are off-grid and use wind, solar and wood for our energy.

We both speak French and English, we're energetic and fun.

Please note that we can only accept registered stagiaires/work experience students (Such as Veterinary or Agricultural students) who need a formal programme in either French or English.

This place was built around 1630 and was a grain and threshing mill until around 40 years ago. We bought it 5 years ago and although the mill is fully habitable will modern appliances the land and barn are still a work in progress - as is re-building the canal wall and installing a new water turbine to convert the property into a fully eco friendly lodge.

We do not live at the property full time although it is usually occupied with friends and family. We are seeking some able bodied individuals with time, energy (skills are a bonus) to help with the ongoing project in return for board and lodging in this wonderful property. We are flexible and happy to discuss any ideas. The mill sleeps 8-10 at full capacity. Details of the property can be found on our website.

If you are interested in spending some time at the mill in return for working on the ongoing renovations please get in touch.

Cheers, A&A

I am renovating my property that is in a beautiful rural area surrounded by farms and country. I intend to refit a terrace (wooden) and do some decorating. There is a courtyard and to the rear a garden, with a separate piece of land, you can sunbathe on, (if the grass is cut!) Maybe plant a melon or two!
If you feel you have the skills, I can offer you accomodation that consists of a large bedroom with 1 double bed, and a single bed. Property includes kitchen and bathroom with bath and shower. Take a look at my website and ignore the 'for sale' detail.

Granite-built farm house in Normandy with beautiful views. 300 years old with a lot of original features. Converted with central heating, 4 bedrooms, two with en suites. We have sheep, three cats, a dog and chickens (for eggs). Nearest neighbours cows. My husband is a part-time university lecturer in project and risk management and travels all over the world with his job. He teaches mainly MSC students from all over the world and we both enjoy the company of young people. In return for board and food we would love to have help with the garden, especially the vegetable garden that has been a little neglected of late. We also have small building projects that we would like some help with, e.g., pointing walls, etc.

Normandy is a beautiful part of the world and the weather can be very mixed - very hot in summer usually and very wet in the winter. That is why it's so green and excellent farming land.

Although we are quite remote we have access to broadband, so we're not re... more inside

This is a large farm in the south west area of France. We are a young English Family living here and running two gites in the Summer months and require an individual or couple just for a couple of weeks before the start of the season to help get the gites and gardens ready - some light building work may be required and general garden maintenance. The house is just 20 mins from the coast and the busy town of Royan. Accommodation would be self contained in one of the gites and we would provide an evening meal as well in return for approx 25 hours work a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

South Normandy. Le Perche. We are NOT a farm but an ancient charming countryside Guest House (XVIIth c.) close to the forest, nestled in the stunning area of Le Perche. We are surrounded by unspoilt nature: hills, picturesque undulating and forested landscape in the heart of the Natural Park of Le Perche. We are a couple living in this "sustainable tourism" guest house. Our 15 ha are a private valley covered by woods, meadows with our horses, gardens and terrace and a swimming pool in summer. The garden is organic and gives the veggies for the guests dinners.
We need a person to help in the kitchen in the evening for the month of July and August.
We also need help for gardening works, painting and usual maintenance (outdoor and indoor), upkeeping of paths and terrace. 25 to 30 hours per week. Coffee break. Hardworking but friendly and smiling atmosphere. Result oriented and consistent with clients used to high standards.
We are friendly, easy going people. We offer very comforta... more inside
