Small farm with sheep, geese, chickens, ducks and rabbits. We try to be as sustainable and organic as possible. We have 2 lakes and find our property to be a haven of tranquility yet 2 minutes to a town and 1 hour to the coast. Perfect! And we have a pool and jaccuzzi for chill out times. We always need help-, setting up animal shelters and fencing, building and renovating and creating our lovely eco gite business. Experience building is very welcome but energy and enthusiasm is equally welcome! accomodation will be in a caravan or in the house if preferred.
We are a couple with an 18 year old girl. I am an estate agent and Dave does renovation work. WE love the outdoor life, swimming and doing fires and barbecues. We love going kayaking and cycling. We are new to helpx but have had lovely experiences with "Wwoofers" in Ireland and France. We love to meet new people and share experiences and cultures and share our lives and this special place.

Hi - we're Martin and Jane, and we own a group of old farm cottages just outside the lovely market town of Civray in South West France. Three of the cottages are rented out as gites and we live in the main farmhouse with our 15 year old daughter Amelie, our beautiful golden retrievers Sophie and Fleur, cats Minou, Thao and Loulou and 11 chickens....

We've been renovating, updating and maintaining the gites and grounds (and our own farmhouse when we get time!) since we moved here nearly 7 years ago, and we'd love some enthusiastic help over the winter months, mostly in the garden as well as some general decorating.

In return we can offer you a beautiful self contained and fully equipped cottage (L'Ecurie - you can see lots of photos on our website) which sleeps 2 (a double bed). We provide breakfast, light lunch and evening meals (lots of good home cooking), a very flexible work schedule, time to yourself and a relaxed, caring and fun family atmosphere (English speaking - al... more inside

*** UPDATE: THANK YOU, ALL, I have found the Helpxers I need from now until March. When I get back from South America in May, I will probably be looking for Helpers to help me with continuing my acquisition of Spanish, so if you are looking for an opportunity in late May/June 2018, please drop me a note. Muchas gracias!

Welcome to the île d'Oléron! Here in a seaside village, on the north-western shore of this 30 km x 12 km island, I live in a house that I designed and in many respects built myself. Lots of light and space, and a big, somewhat wild garden.

I am looking for solo helpers (sorry, but non-smokers only, please, and no pets or drugs) who would be willing to help me learn beginning Spanish. Stays of two weeks or longer would be ideal, providing everyone feels comfortable. (A good HelpX situation fits the needs of both helper and host!)

About 3 hours of Spanish, plus an hour of upkeep work in the garden (for the fun of getting our hands dirty) per da... more inside

Bonjour
Nous sommes Corinne et François, 61 et 70 ans. Nous habitons dans la belle campagne bocagère de l'Argentonnais entre Angers, Nantes et Poitiers., dans l'ouest de la France.
Depuis 2010 nous rénovons notre grande et très ancienne maison de manière écologique avec des matériaux de provenance proche.
Nous recevons des groupes pour les vacances, et organisons des stages de formation (toujours en lien avec la nature et la créativité en toute simplicité, consulter notre site pour plus de détails : www.latourdauzay.fr).
Nous demandons aux helpers de nous aider pour la rénovation : poncer les poutres ou les tomettes, peindre, ou pour le jardin : planter des arbres, cultiver le potager, ou pour couper du bois.
Nous avons des poules, des oies et deux brebis et un bélier dont il faut s'occuper aussi.
Nous prêtons des bicyclettes pour les promenades environnantes, il y a aussi de nombreux chemins pour marcher.
Nous sommes contents de rencontrer des jeunes helpers désireux de c... more inside

Hi, we have lots of work that needs doing, mostly general maintenance, but also more skilled, such as electric's, plumbing and roofing. At the moment the barn roof is the most urgent. We are hoping to start on this in the Spring when we need to take off old tiles, repair/replace timbers and then put corrugated roof panels on. After that just cover with some of the tiles. If you have any experience of roofing or general building and don't mind heights and fancy a few weeks break in France in the Spring (it can be lovely weather from about February onwards) then please get in touch. We have plenty of room here for you and in return for your work we will supply bed and meals plus a few beers! If you are a couple then there could possibly be work for two people, I need some rooms decorated and help sorting out all our "junk!" .Thanks for looking

Hi everyone,

We are a family of 4, Sebastien and Laurence, with our two young children, Louise who is 8, and Morgan who is 5 years old. We also house 2 cats and sometime sheep!
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.

We need some help especially for outside work:

- We have a large garden where we grow lots of organic fruits (raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants..) so we always need help mulching, weeding, watering, mowing, etc.,

- There's always a b... more inside
