We are a family (Louis 37, Caroline 35, Elina 8 and Milo 6), expecting a new born baby in March. The baby is most probably going to be born at home and carried most of the time. Our children go to the local Steiner school. We would like to host a young adult, preferably female, to help us with the baby and children care, cooking, bringing kids to school, do some cleaning and washing. We have a nice room of 25m², just next to the house. We expect about 4 hours help a day in exchange of food and hosting. The local area is very nice and dynamic and very alternative, with lots of activities as yoga, meditation, dancing, music, organic farming. The mountains are 1,5 hour from home. We eat almost 100% biological, mostly vegetarian, but some meat or fish now and then. We can adapt to special diets if needed. We try to enhance dialogue and understanding in our education, contact with nature, and secure feeling.
Please feel free to contact us and ask more about us!

I am currently renovating a little old traditional Quercy style House in the Lot department of South west France situated between Rocamadour and Cahors. Once complete I can begin the grand conversion of the adjacent barn into a house. I am trying my best to use as many locally sourced materials and techniques as I can, in order to produce a traditional country cottage feel with a modern efficient touch. I am looking for someone with gardening experience/interest to come in the spring and help with the starting of an organic vegetable garden. I am also looking for people to help with the construction and general landscaping. In return I can offer general building and carpentry skills and local knowledge from a beautiful healthy and happy environment that the Lot has to offer. There are many beautiful attractions close by produced by both Hand and nature, there are also many markets close by supporting the local organic production of fruit and vegetables.

We live in the countryside, in the South West of France, with our 20 months daughter, and we are expecting a boy for December. We have horses and donkeys and we are renovating a 17th century old farm. We need an English speaking au pair girl to keep our children at home and help us with our horses education and cares. We can afford you a car with a full tank each month, a large bedroom with its own bathroom, and you can ride horses as much as you want, outside or in an indoor area (we own a riding school). Don't hesitate to contact us to have more photos and informations !

Help needed - very soon if possible - to cut and stack fire-wood ( using up old pine beams, wooden crates, doors, shutters etc) to supplement my central heating logs ready for the winter.
I have an electric log cutter which makes the job easier - NOT a chain saw - and there will be logs to be split and stack as well. Bit of a dusty job but it needs to be done soon before the weather turns. Really good accommodation, double bedroom and own bathroom, good company and good food. Suitable for a couple who want a short stay in a beautiful medieval village in SW France.

This gite in the Ariege Pyrenees is looking for help around the garden and with general renovation work. Set in a stunning mountain valley location, but within easy reach of town with bars and restaurants. The gite has a swimming pool and the area is wonderful for climbing, hill walking/mountaineering, skiing and cycling (also the annual Tour de France cycle race regularly passes close by to here).

We live in a beautiful French farmhouse in the Quercy Blanc countryside. The nearest big towns are Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot. We need help in the garden - felling fruit trees, hedge pruning, strimming and grass cutting. There are one or two small building tasks needing done also, if anyone has the urge and the skills. The ability to use a chainsaw would be really helpful - we can provide protective clothing, mask and ear defenders, as well as all the necessary tools.

We can offer accommodation for a couple in our gite, (see the photos) which we offer in return for a couple of hours work a day for a couple. Weekends off, and it would give you more independence if you catered for yourselves, though of course all helpers are welcome to join up with us for drinks and chat. We can offer bikes and lifts in to town (nearest shops 7 km)and outings to local places of interest.

We are English, but have lived here for 20 years and both speak fluent French. Christopher speaks fl... more inside

Sorry folks we aren't looking at any help for 2015, well so far anyways. If we do at any point in time we'll update our profile.

We run a tour company based in Alberta, Canada and operating in Aveyron, south west of France. This is a husband-wife operation where Christian (husband) has a full-time career in Canada and Veronique delivers the tours. It's quite unique as the tours are hosted in her house and guided by Veronique.
To know more about Aveyron, what we do, etc. check our website. There are photos, videos, and lots of stories.
Anyhow we're looking for a helper for the month of June 2014 who could provide no more than a couple hours of light housekeeping a day.
In exchange we provide the accommodation (check our website for photos) and the use of our personal car as Veronique is touring our guests with another vehicle.
So, this is a full French immersion in a region where wine, food (Roquefort), history and heritage (Conques, Millau viaduct) are part of daily lives.

Our names are John, Siriluck and Tom our 5 year old son.
We are trying to create a wonderful environment in which to live.
https://vimeo.com/138128782
Our first priority is to build our family home and we're looking for help to build it. The house is well advanced now and we will be doing the internal rendering from 20 July.No special building knowledge needed. (don't worry, I'll be on site and the buck stops with me).
Sometimes there is some work to be done in the wood.
We provide a caravan for accommodation and good food. You will also be sharing our Yurt with us, especially at meal times. We ask 5 hours a day for 5 days every week.
The house, to our knowledge, is the first Cob build in the South of France. It's actually a hybrid with load bearing Straw Bales on the North wall. 50 cm thick cob walls, bioclimatic greenhouse, lime/acacia foundations, natural stone plinth, lime and earth renders, rocket stove, self-build solar panels.
At the time of writing we are busy C... more inside
