** Currently looking for a helper who can start at the end of August.

I have a bed and breakfast located in Langeais, a town on the banks of the Loire, and am looking for help to run it as my partner works in England. The sort of help I need includes house-sitting and dog-sitting, serving a simple breakfast, some cleaning and laundry duties, and other general household chores and gardening. If you're interested in more practical jobs we would always appreciate those handy with a paintbrush, but above all the top priority is looking after the clients.

If you do not have a car, there is a good train service linking Langeais to Tours, Saumur, Angers and even as far as Nantes. There is so much to see and do in this very beautiful part of France, in particular if you're interested in visiting some of the many historic chateaus in the area.

I like everyone to feel instantly at ease and comfortable. There's always a beer, wine or an ice-cream on offer! We look forward to hearing ... more inside

We are a couple living with our son (4 years old), 2 dogs, 1 cat and trying to live in a certain simplicity.

The plot :
The garden is a little less than 1ha, we mainly live in caravans and the half of the garden is dedicated for welcoming horses from neighbors. The pasture is closed by an electrical fence, so if it's free, you can come with yours.
The "house" consists on a single room for all uses : a little workshop (I'm an accordion tuner), a common kitchen, a sitting area. It extends through a hangar for bigger activities (carpentry, masonry, mechanical…).
The field is isolated, you could enjoy beautiful walks in the countryside and we will try to show you our favorites places and friends of the region if you want.

We need helpers for many works : building a new room in the hangar, building a water tower from rain, gardening (maintenance and organic vegetable garden), planting trees, building owl nests, baby-sitting, according to the priorities and your preference/capaci... more inside

I work as a a goat's cheese maker.When I don't work and when I'm not gardenig I dance tango.
Nearby, live one of my daughters, her boyfriend and 3 of my grandchrildren (1, 4 and 12 years old).
Here help is needed with the animals, the general maintenance and the garden: feed the chicken, close the chicken house at night, collect eggs, give hugs to cats and dogs. Help is also needed with my 2 youngest grandchildren here at home or at my daughter's house (see it on the last picture, her host ID is 29552)
Some cleaning is always welcome, as help for cooking and there's always little things to fix all around the farm.
Independent people who don't mind having time on their own, will feel very well here.
I'm often on the road because of my job (delivery cheese...), so you may be alone sometimes, or with my daughter and her family.
It's possible to pick you u... more inside

Hi
We use to travel as often as we can (Morroco, india, Israel, Australia, eastern Europe, New-Zealand…) and we found a great way to go on travelling while we’re in france : hosting volunteers !
We are a friendly french family : Christophe : healer (osteopath) and meditation and Qi-Qong instructor, Maud : writer and actor's director, with 3 easy going children : Lin 12 years old and Enki 4 years, Zacharie 1 year and a half.
Lin is a great French teacher, he is very talkative! And you could teach him some English too.
We share our time between 2 places :
- Our house which is situated in a beautiful area with fields and forests, close to a small typical village, not very far from Paris ( 2 hours by train). Here we are restoring our house which is really in the nature .
-And our family house on the Island "île d'yeu" which is a small wild and amazing Island in Vendée (South brittany) . Here our kids spend most time on the beach...
We live in an ecological way, we use dry comp... more inside

This is wonderful area for all sorts of outdoor pursuits, the enchanting Mayenne river has a towpath that stretches 100 km an ideal way to see the heart of rural France, walking or cycling, lots of stuff to do, places to see for those who like to explore.

We are an English family some of who have lived in the area for 10+ years others are more recently arrived. We run a bike hire business from our Mill near Saumur.


We live in a Water Mill that we are renovating. The Mill is located 10 mins from Saumur and the Loire. There has been a Mill here for 300 years. We have lots of exciting ideas that cover lots of different skills and are very enthusiastic to turn them into reality. We have general tasks that anyone can do (cleaning, painting, gardening, assisting in building work) and would specifically love to hear from roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and welders.

Thanks for your interest

Our project, which is already well underway, is the renovation of the former Commandery of the order of the Templars and Maltese Knights and its outhouses, establishing a small size spice and herbs farm according to organic standards.
We are a well-travelled, Anglo/French retired couple (young in spirit and very active) living in a rural area just south of Brittanny and 10kms from the coast and the river Loire, after a life of travel, working and sailing in the Indian and the Pacific oceans.
We receive many helpers wanting to improve their French and provide our help to achieve their objective. We have a horse and use a couple of sheep from neighbours to help keep the grass under control in the spring.
We are located 43 km West of Nantes, close to some lovely beaches and only a 30 minute drive to cross the Loire and visit South Brittanny.

Ideally we would like a couple for a period from a couple of weeks to 4 weeks depending on how it works out for both parties. On the age... more inside
