I live in an old house in the middle of a very small, remote village close to the Canal du Midi, not far from Carcassonne, Béziers or Narbonne. I have a dog and a small garden, and in season lots of friends and family who come to spend their holydays. The rest of the time i find myself alone amidst my small 'soon to be paradise' home, trying to keep up with the garden, renovation (or only maintenance) and still enjoy going to the beach or explore the region. Yes, the region is rich in culture (medieval, mostly) and beautiful nature, and even after 16 years being here, i am still a far cry from having seen it all...
So, my idea was to host like minded persons with a back that doesn't hurt as much as mine ;) . Free stay for about 3 or 4 hours a day/ 15 to 20 a week, and we share expenses for food and take turns in cooking. If you are as set on being independent as i am, your own transport is a sine qua non.

The house is a large ranch style property. It is set in a peaceful valley of great beauty, three kilometres from the lively medievil village of Caunes Minervois. It has the Argent Double River running the length of the land and has swimming places and water falls. The water is pure and recently tested, it comes from an abundant source and is full of minerals and delicious!
I am a potter and have a separate studio on the land, I do often need a hand in the pottery, I run classes and make to sell.
I need help on the land and in the house.
I have cats, dogs and hens and have some horses here at the moment to help clear the land.
This is a unique opertunity for volunteers.

this was a organic farm (ecocert) for apples, juice and herbal teas. We had also a greenhouse to cultivate certain herbs and aromatic plants.
In the same time we restaured 3 old little houses. Most of the hectares is forest.
Now it would be wonderful to find helpers for the trees and the houses - they need to be restaured. And also wood could be cut, the forest is coming down the hills.
There is spring-water, this living place is between 2 little villages on 650m over sea-niveau. It is a quite wild, untouched nature on the east-north side of the pyrenees.

I have a former boulangerie in a small village and require help with the renovations, so someone who can turn their hand to most building work. I am an artist so I need time to do that too but the building needs lots of work. I have a gallery and studio on the first floor and an apartment on the second floor and the potential of another apartment on the top.
There is lots to see around here and good walking.
I am about to have an exhibition and after that I hope to have the time free to start work on the renovation again.
Most of what I need is building work.

We are an Anglo/ French couple,(we speak French between ourselves), and we are currently doing up an old house in the centre of the village of Sommieres, which is a pretty, Medieval town on the banks of a small river. We are going to create 2 appartments in the building, the top one with a roof terrace.. So far we have redone the roof, the façade, and replaced all the windows. We are now finishing off the bathroom on the second floor, so at least one floor will be livable. the whole of the third floor needs doing, at the moment it's just a big empty room with a mezzanine, so we need to make a kitchen and bathroom up there. We also need to do a concrete floor downstairs. We do not live on site at the moment, we live about 45mins away, so you can stay with us, and we'll drive over there. We have a futon bed in a spare room for you, plus your own bathroom downstairs, so its suitable for a couple if you're both willing to work. Its a very old stone house, and we are using old traditiona... more inside

Hi! I'm Jen - I live in a lovely old fisherman's cottage in Collioure, at the foot of the Pyrenees. I'd appreciate a fun, friendly, reliable, competent person to help with household maintenance, DIY, some administrative work, maybe some food preparation - a mix of taking over some and helping with others of these activities. This way you and I can each have time to enjoy this beautiful region!

I also have a small ongoing renovation project on another property in the area, and some of your time will be spent there. At some point it would be helpful to have assistance from someone with electrical knowledge and someone with knowledge of IT/computing/promotion over the internet.

I can offer good, healthy food and good company, a comfortable room in my home, beautiful scenery and great opportunities for a choice of outdoor activities. In return I would like approximately 25-30 hours of your help per week. English and French spoken. Non-smokers please.
