Hi I'm in the Ariège, south West of France, in the Pyreneese, 1 hr from Toulouse. I have just opened a small cattery and take dogs in not as a kennels closed in a box, but with me and my 3 cocker spaniels and cats, so everyone must get along!! I Have a nice house that needs lots of bits and bobs doing. All help would be welcome either with the dogs, especially august and in September, or with building work around the house, if that was your thing. There is nothing horribly strenuous but having someone else does get me motivated!!!
The ariège is a beautifull area, lovely country and some fun people. I'm 48 and live with my 3 cocker spaniels, 2 young cats and chickens.
My house is in a little hamlet 16km from Saint Girons which is a nice town with a great saturday market, I do help out selling organic veg there. And then about 1 hr from Toulouse. Do contact me if you have any questions.
a BIG MUST though, you MUST like animals as they are my life and job :-)))

Hi There; We are a family of 3 anglo/belge street theatre / cabaret performers (Ben, Saskia and Dixie Lu aged 9) who moved to this wonderful area of Haute Garonne from Antwerp in Belgium 3 years ago. During that time we have been building and renovating like crazy, setting up our vegetable garden, exploring and harvesting wood from our 10 acre wild forest, and generally adapting to this new way of life. We are striving to run our place on permacultural principals with varying degrees of success! In our local village which has an incredible market on Sunday mornings we, with others, set up a café / venue which we now run as a collective. We still perform and teach but we are also broadening our line(s) of work. I (Ben) did a year long Mindfulness Meditation teacher training course and now teach, and Saskia teaches dance and has a vegetable paté business (!!).

We always need help with general maintenance (some strimming, veg garden, woodland etc), and we are also in the process of ... more inside

We are a french-belgian family with three lovely children (aged from 11 years to 5 years old) living on an old farm halfway between Toulouse (45min.by car or train) and the Pyrenees.
We have a large organic vegetable garden; 0,5ha of appletrees; some woodland, and a big river to swim in during summer.
Depending on the season the appletrees need trimming, the apples picked, we make compote and juice. During spring and summer a lot is to do in the vegetablegarden, we do make all sorts of jam, jars of ratatouille, conserves...
We are renovating the house so there is always sanding, painting, breaking down and building up going on.

We are a dynamic family, always something going on and our children are very happy with people around.
We've got a big caravan to host people - in the house there is a spare bedroom as well.

We live in a very beautiful area, great nature, old villages, the nice city of Toulouse not far, small markets, ...

We speak both flemish (dutch) and fr... more inside

I am a single mum from a 10 years old boy, I am working in an organisation which is working with international volunteers. I would need some help in my daily life and someone who could stay home while I participate to some meetings in the evenings. It will not be more than 4 working hours a day. I am living in south french country side, and through my work and my local connections, I think the experience here can be rich and interesting in several topics!

Smallholding in rural SW France (goats, pigs, geese and chickens, five dogs and a cat). Jobs would include helping with animals, some maintenance, small projects and woodland work (clearing and felling for firewood). House sitter(s) occasionally required for long or short stays.

North of Maubourguet in the Hautes Pyrenees, within striking distance of the mountains and coast, in the wine producing region of Madiran. Transport is required to get around unless you like walking or cycling (bikes available). Having said that, we are on a main road and have a fairly regular bus service.

Hello,

We are building a house by ourselves in the center of Pyrénées. The project you will participate is the building of a house, using alternative methods of construction. We are a couple, Aurélie and Florian, 27 and 34 years old.
We will be glad to host you in a caravan near the building site. There's a free internet at the building house.

You are welcome, if you do and like physical jobs, we prefer if you have already some experiences. The important is you to be a volonteer person, interested by practicing different construction methods.

The job we have to do is building inside wall (cordwood wall) with wood and clay. This is a long and technical methode. But is meditative.

The project is located in the mountains in the Pyrenees, in a very beautiful and wild area. The idea is to build a house by using as far as possible materials we can find in the nature around. For that we cut by ourselves the trees for the wood framework. We plan to isolate with materials ... more inside

Hello, My name is Carina, and my friend's name is Ragnar. We are from Dutch origins but we live and work in the South of France. We are currently renovating our house which is located next to a small river.
There is more than enough room for 2 persons.
We're looking forward to meet dynamic people, to help us out for about 5 hours a day (no helping out in the weekends, that's for leisure and/or sightseeing). You'd become part of the family, and eat with us. I could show you the area. There is a bus stop not far from our house, so you can do some sightseeing yourself. We can also lend you bicycles. If you'd like to spend the rest of your day more leisurely, it is possible to swim or fish in the river, or sunbathe in the garden (if the sun cooperates!). The helping out part comprises different tasks in the garden/ on the land,(work in the vegetable garden, help create us a nice garden!) and helping / assisting us with the renovation. (Handing tiles, removing wallpaper, painting w... more inside

Fenautrigues is a tiny little hamlet about 10 minutes (by car ) from St Cere in the Lot. We (Jane and Dave) have a house and a collection of farm buildings which we are currently renovating. There is also about 4 Ha of partially cleared land which is badly in need of some attention before it turns back into primal forest. We need some help with tree clearing, gardening, internal building, painting - especially painting, really anything that a reasonably practical person could do. If you want to learn how to do some plumbing and electrical work then I have a lot of that to do as well.

There is good accommodation and lots of food for anyone working here and work time can be flexible; we have the tools to do the work but too much work for us to cope with on our own.

This part of France is very beautiful, there are lots of small villages, the countryside is very quiet and the roads are peaceful. The house is on the edge of one of the ridges which gives spectacular views which w... more inside
