We have a large house and are looking for people to help on maintenance and renovation (painting, light construction work) and gardening/landscaping.

Helpers, in exchange for part time help will be able to enjoy the "big outdoors" life in the heart of the French Alps in a quiet village overlooking the valley. Ideal for a couple, meals, and transportation to the town located in the valley when necessary.

Our family comprises parents who have lived in many countries, speaking several languages, and have decided to move here as a break from urban life. There are also a dog and 3 children aged 12 to 17 whose main interests are ski and hockey roller.

The views here are breathtaking and hikers, cyclists, motorbikers love it here.

We'll be happy having someone any time of the year with us in The French Alps will be very welcome.

Bonjour amis woofers.
Nous vivons dans un joli petit coin du parc naturel régional des monts d'Ardèche à une vingtaine de kilomètres de Privas, au calme. Nous avons eu un coup de cœur, il y a maintenant 2 ans, pour ce lieu paisible, en pleine nature, à la vue dégagée. Nous avons fait le choix de quitter nos emplois, de déménager et de nous lancer dans une aventure difficile mais exaltante et correspondant à notre envie de vivre autrement.
Je suis donc devenu éleveur de brebis avec un troupeau d'une centaine de bêtes et j'exploite 50 hectares de terres dont 6 hectares de châtaigneraies en conversion bio.
Le temps fort de la vie chez nous, c’est le ramassage des châtaignes, qui se fait au mois d’octobre et dure environ trois semaines. Il se fait à la main, pour respecter les fruits et proposer un produit de qualité. C'est une tâche physique et fatigante mais c’est aussi une occasion de partager et d’échanger entre les ramasseurs. Cela permet également de vivre un moment privilég... more inside

We are a family leaving in the Geneva (Switzerland) area. We are located in between the Alps and the Jura.
We love to make exchanges and are keen to meet with new people / cultures.
In exchange we would like to get companions either with good capacities in "do-it-yourself" for little jobs in the house and in our (small) garden and/or we would love to have English speakers companions to teach English to our kids (3 boys under 14 years old)
We have a big bedroom to welcome you with 1 king size bed.
See you soon!

We are a small French/ Chilean family with a 6 months baby. We travel a lot and we love meeting up new peoples. We both work full time in Geneva and with the arrival of the baby we are really missing time to do any work in our house.

We have a big old farm we have been renovated for many years, the house is on a hill in a small village in haute savoie, 20 minutes from Annecy and Geneva. we have a small organic garden in summmer time and a small greenhouse.

We are very flexible and open to any offer related to the garden and the farm renovation.

We would actually need the help of someone having skills in gardening or landscaping to fence the property, cut and prune a few trees, weed and help out with the garden and greenhouse. This work should ideally take place any time between now and October.

We would also need help to do some renovation in the old barn and in some small parts of the house so someone with carpenter or woodcraft skills would be really appreciated. We ... more inside

On 2017, we host helpers from late June to September.

We are retired teachers. We inherited a large family property with several buildings and a large field. We are nature lovers and we decided to create a park (arboretum) and we take care of it. We also produce organical vegetables and fruits, but we do not make breedings. We are not vegetarians, but we are very careful about the quality of our supplies : we are members of an AMAP, "voisins de panier" to buy local organic food to complete our production. Paul is also involved in a workshop of wood and a blog on the internet. Pascaline is interested in writing. We both play music and we work together a lot in the park. The house is large and well appointed and the last few years we do hosting also couchsurfers and bewelcomers. We really appreciate getting to know all kinds of people. Since spring 2012, we received more than sixty helpers! It was a real exchange : we helped those who wanted to learn French. If possible, we also h... more inside

Hello,
We bought a house and a barn with a large garden, in the three Valleys area, near wellknown and beautiful mountains (Vanoise National Park, Courchevel...). However, we need help to restore the garden. We are not specialists but we are motivated.
Consequently, we are looking for someone to help with the garden...
Do not hesitate to contact us if you want to come with us in this adventure !

We are in the Drome, south east of France, on the foot of the quite wild mountain "the Vercors", an organically renovated farm, as well as a part time hosting house. This is a vegetarian and no-alcohol place, totally in Nature (non smoking). we grow our own vegetables, fruits....
We offer to the hosts a place to set back from the city life and take time with oneSelf.
The opportunity we offer is an intense involvement in daily activities, being part of the house, more like 8 hours but with a little of everything to get different experiences. My wish is that you don't feel it as work but as part of family life and developing experience in something in link with Nature and fulfilling you inside. Also you will be cooking at turns to share the daily life, so you need some skills in this ! :) It is an important experience since you will be in link with the garden, composing from Nature to the plate.... . You will have 1 day 1/2 of free time if you still eat with us ( you still help... more inside
