Hi,
my name is Stephen and I live in a small village in a lovely rural part of France just 30 minutes south of Poitiers.
I am restoring my house which is over 200 years old, the restoration work is being sympathetically done, with that and the garden which needs work there is plenty to do. If you have any skills to help in these areas would be great but if not I'm sure your assistance would be helpful.

I would be pleased to have a French speaker as it would allow me to continue to learn the language, but everyone, no matter your language, is welcome.
I'm a pretty chilled guy and easy to get along with.

Priority work at the moment is my garden including building a stone wall (I've built half of it already)

Your room is the best room in the house (see photo) and apart from the double bed there is a sofa & coffee table.
I was a chef for a while so the food is pretty good, I provide 3 meals a day with a beer or wine with the evening meal, fresh coffee is always on tap or... more inside

We live on Oleron Island, and our house is a 5 minute bikeride (or 10minute walk) from the coast and nearest village, Saint Denis d'Oleron. From the beach and harbour, you can see the famous Fort Boyard and La Rochelle. We live in the countryside, but have several bikes you can use to make use of the many cyclepaths/trails and beautiful beaches that Oleron has to offer.

Near the house, are the best SURF's spots of the island, you can go by bike. Sebastien is surfer and will come with you surfing. We have some wetsuits and bodyboard for you.

Helpers welcomed - couples, singles or friends - IMMEDIATELY and throughout the summer 2018.

Hi there, we are Helen and Phil (an English couple) and we're looking for lots of help with our on-going renovation and organic garden project near Lac de Lavaud on the Charente-Limousin border in France, 40 minutes west from Limoges.

We are looking for a couple of strong guys or girls (lol or one of each) to help us clear a site for a decked area, filling it with rubble (which we have on site) and marking out...in readiness for our little pool! We need this work done very soon.


There's loads of work to help us with now that spring is officially here. We need people who can happily spend some time helping Phil repointing ancient stonework with a lime/sand mix. There are logs to be cut and stacked and the barn needs to be cleared a bit ready for a new log pile....and maybe some pointing work and painting indoors if it rains.

I'm also trying my hand at organic veggie gardening ... more inside

Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 24, 22, 20, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "CrÍpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".You could go to the Puy du Fou, who is 15 minutes from les Herbiers.

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique
