We have spent 35 years protecting wildlife. Since coming to France we have created a natural environment for wildlife in our grounds, we live on a beautiful mountain adjoining forest land with fantastic views in the Ariege, Pyrenees. Our aim is to encourage others to be involved. Help is required to maintain the grounds and assist with some domestic work and Barn renovating, any building or labouring skills will be especially welcomed. We strive to protect and preserve the natural environment surrounding our house, making nesting boxes, ponds and wildflower meadows etc. People joining us will have the opportunity to take part in these projects and offer their own ideas.
Accommodation is located in the main cottage with superb views from each bedroom. Other facilities include free Internet with skype. Mountain tracks lead directly from the garden.
We look forward to sharing our lifestyle with you.

I am currently looking for a house/pet sitter/human companion for 14 cats, one very naughty Yorkshire Terrier and an ancient gerbil!

We live in a large property in rural Normandy, in a small village opposite a medieval church. William the Conqueror used to have a chateau here but it has long gone now.

We are Mum, Scarlett 26, Morgan 21 and Oliver 19.

We have a small project teaching English as a foreign language to students which is very rewarding.

Everyone, family and helpers, join in with the cleaning and washing up.

I need people who know how to paint walls and doors, (drip free), and people who are good at giving the place a jolly good deep clean.

We have a small garden that needs constant attention. Everything grows like crazy here. We need people who know the difference between a plant and a weed.

We are fun and easy going and treat our helpers as part of the family.

We are not far from the golden beaches at Granville/Carrols, (surfing).

We are ... more inside

We are located in Ardèche, in the South of France, live in a beautiful place with view on the Ardeche mountains and are looking for a couple of helpers.
I am Sophie,( 53 years), and since five years, I have been running with Eric (63 years) who is retiring, a guest house in an old stone farm. Around 700 people come each year in our guest house. During the season we host 10 guests, are often 15 to 20 around the table (my children and their friends often come to visit, help and share, and we organize some pizza’s party or dinnar with our guests). In the mid season or winter it is quieter, and we are aiming at transforming this guest house into a place where people from differents generations live and work in harmony with spirit and nature. We are starting permaculture, wish to become as most self sufficent and sustainable as possible, and want to share our way of life with people via hosting helpers and guests and organizing seminars.

URGENT - Just been let down by a volunteer so space available NOW.
LONG TERM help would be ideal.

If you know how to use, sharpen and maintain chainsaws, that would be truly fabulous.

We moved to France in 2008 from Scotland with the aim of living more ecologically and are passionate about sustainability. We live on the edge of the Perche National Park in a small hamlet and have an old house with barn and outbuildings together with 7 hectares (17 acres) of land. Our nearest village is 2.5 km (1 mile) away and the nearest town, La Ferte Bernard is 5.5 miles to the south with good facilities. From La Ferte Bernard there are easy, direct rail and road links to Le Mans (30 miles) and Paris (105 miles).

Accommodation would be in the house with us and food is sharing our daily repas. We are omnivores but I can cater for vegetarians. Currently I feel unable to provide a balanced diet for vegans so sadly we can not accommodate those with a vegan lifestyle. Thanks to two very fu... more inside

We are a small Llamas farm, located in the Pyrenees mountains. If you are looking for an original French experience, it could be the right place for you!
Here in the high Pyrenees, near to the Andorra & Spanish border, we offer you the possibility to live and work in a calm and isolated place, surrounded by high mountains and nothing but pure nature, and good meals "à la française" after our activities among our lamas (about 15 of them).
We are a retired French couple, but we used to work and live in foreign countries and continents, which made us interested in people and cultures from all over the world.
In the surroundings, there are beautiful places that we would be happy to make you discover, and if you want, we can trek together with Llamas...
For your own, you`d get an entire and cosy apartment, and join us for generous meals that we like to share and appreciate together (so, no vegetarian requirement, please).
If you are fit : slopes make the work pretty physical ... more inside

Bonjour, nous sommes Yoann et Florence un couple avec 2 enfants de 8 ans et 13 ans. nous sommes installés en agriculture sur la commune d'Hasparren, au Pays Basque. Nous y avons acheté une ferme il y a deux ans et nous avons décider d'adhérer au cahier des charges et à la charte IDOKI, car nous croyons aux valeurs de l'agriculture paysanne, qui met en valeur le contact humain, le respect de l'environnement et le travail à échelle humaine. Nous réalisons nous même tous les travaux en relation avec la maison et la ferme. Nous avons un troupeau de brebis laitière avec lequel nous faisons de la tomme de brebis sous l'AOP Ossau Iraty ainsi qu'un cheptel de poules pondeuses élevées en plein air. Nous avons envie de partager notre expérience avec des personnes qui sont désireuses de s'ouvrir à des valeurs qui nous sembles essentielles comme le respect de la nature, de l'être humain, du bien être animal et du travail. Nous aimons également échanger et partager autour d'un bon repas.

Helpers wanted 2017/18.

We are a British couple Bill & Lin and live in the beautiful Poitou Charente region of France, with our dog. We accept helpers for a week or two at a time.
Bill is a retired plumber and we are renovating an old stone house and barn in a small, quiet, rural hamlet in the beautiful Vienne, close to Lusignan, south west France.

We are about 30 minutes from Poitiers, futuroscope,Saint Maixent and Melle there are plenty of monuments, churches etc within a short drive.

Extra pairs of hands to help out would be great. Most has been done, but there is still a little to do. We accept enthusiastic or experienced helpers.
There are some uploaded photos of before and after.

If you would like to help out then why not contact us.

We enjoy meeting people and having a laugh,
sitting relaxing with a glass of wine or a beer in the evening discussing the day and putting the world to right.

we offer a room with super king size bed and private shower roo... more inside

[Version française plus bas!]

Welcome to Aix les Bains!
I live in a big house with a garden. I have a local that I would like to transform in studio.
For this, I need volunteers with experience (or a strong training) in construction, plumber or carpenter.
Being a woman alone, and not speaking English, I'll be willing to welcome only francophone couples. Thank you in advance for understanding this!
I live 20mn walking distance from the harbour (Bourget natural lake), 20mn from the train station, and 15mn from the city center.
I'll ask you 4 working hours per week, or 5 with free weekend, in exchange of 3 meals a day, and a room in my house.
See you soon I hope!

Bienvenue à Aix les Bains!
Je dispose d'une maison spacieuse et d'un jardin, dans lequel se trouve un local que je souhaite convertir en studio.
Pour ce faire, j'ai besoin de volontaires ayant de l'expérience ou une formation solide en plomberie, charpenterie ou maçonnerie.
