Hi, we are Jonathan (French, 34, musician) and Anna (Czech, 27, ethnologist and tapestry maker), renovating an old stones house. There is also a small organic garden, and our sleeping cat.
Help will be warmly welcomed for renovating the house and embellish the garden.

We use to ask 5h30 of help of work each day, 5 days per week (..Don't worry, we use to work relaxed, listening to our own rythms.. We prefer a beautiful work that feels good, than a quick work with an absent mind :).
The time of cooking is not counted as time of work. We all cook together and/or share the usual household tasks.

French, English, Spanish, Czech, Vegetarian spoken ;) [that means that we are vegetarians and provide vegetarian's food -and yes...it's made with love]

Salut tout le monde ! Jonathan (français, 34ans, musicien bâtisseur en quête de sens), Anna (tchèque, 27ans, animatrice, ethnologue & tapissière d’ameublement) et Princesse Léia (féli... more inside

Hi!

If you are planning an extended touring trip around Europe and you want to visit lots of places but don't have the budget to stay in rented accommodation then this might be a placement for you.

We are a family home located in a vineyard surrounded by rolling vines in the most beautiful part of South West France. From time to time we also need help with maintenance in the garden, in the house and when we have guests. We are 30 mins away from Bergerac and 1 hour from Bordeaux Airports with their budget airlines covering all of Europe. The Medieval town of Ste Foy La Grande and its train station connecting to the rest of Europe is just 6km away so transport is easy.

I do not need continual help throughout the summer and there are many periods of time where you might have several weeks off and also the odd week off when you can go and travel, leaving all your gear here and just taking a light back pack. Or as one Kiwi couple did buy a car and travel.

Looking for someone to come and help on our smallholding, we have lots of renovation work underway, but primarily want someone to help with our 4 horses and 4 dogs. No horse experience necessary as they are all very easy to do.

I have recently had an operation and unable to do any lifting/carrying so need an extra pair of hands while my partner is away. But also looking for someone longer term who can help with projects here.

Plenty of free time for sightseeing. We live on the edge of forestry with endless trails for walking/cycling/riding.

We are very rural not near public transport so own transport would be recommended.

Someone with easy going nature, just willing to muck in when needed and just relax when not!

Own newly renovated apartment, internet access available.

We are restoring a fabulous castle with 365 windows that still badly need TLC : putty, linseed oil, varnish... April, May, June, September, October are usually fine. July and August are not a time when works can be done at the chateau as visitors are around.
We would be very glad to welcome one or two people who are fond of old places and heritage. There are lots of other things that need doing as well. If you like refurbishing, if you are good at clearing up, carpentering, plumbering or gardening... you'll have lots to keep you busy !
We live in the South West of France, the Dordogne, in an area where there is lots to visit and enjoy.
We don't actually live in the chateau (so there is some travelling involved) but in town which is nice because Périgueux is a lovely little city right in the center of the Dordogne.
You will be able to share our family life with our teenaged daughter. We often have our children and grand-children during the holidays.
We speak both French & E... more inside

Hiya Helpers, Greetings from SW France. We are seeking 1 or 2 people to stay during the last two weeks of October to help us 'put the garden to bed' (maybe tidying and cleaning in the house if it rains!) We can offer a warm and friendly welcome with great food, lovely location, excellent accommodation, pleasant socialising and 4 gorgeous cats. We need help in the garden and we have a few maintenance jobs or a couple of projects for someone who's handy with DIY. So we'd welcome a couple where one can garden and the other can use their DIY-type skills. But a single gardener is fine. Weeding, strimming, mowing, raking, planting, staking, pruning etc.

We live in a big house at the end of a no-through road, among Bordeaux vines - lovely and tranquil with little traffic to disturb our 4 cats! We have an indoor heated pool so you can swim whenever you like, day or night.

Mel is a great cook; apart from International cuisine, he can do Chinese, Indian, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Mal... more inside

Hi there

My boyfriend and I (I'm Irish and 35, he's English and 41) are leaving behind our hectic life in London in search of a more peaceful, self sufficient lifestyle. We have bought an acre and a half of land in rural France's Dordogne area (about a mile from the stunning river itself). As of 1st November 2017, we are building a home, 2 gites (to eventually let out) and a pool. Aaron is a roofer by trade and owned a solar energy company for years so the focus is on solar/thermal energy and building a place that will have low bills and is environmentally sound. So if you want to learn a trade or more about solar, Aaron is the perfect teacher! We will have vegetable beds, chickens for eggs and in a few months plan to get a dog and a few other animals. We are doing the entire build ourselves! We would love someone to help us out for as many days as they can in exchange for food, a few beers, a roaring fire and your own tent to sleep in (we will also be in a tent from April to Oct... more inside

I would like to find people to help me out in three areas. 1. Rebuilding the wooden sluice gates and perhaps even a mill wheel. 2. Rebuilding a 72 square metre area wooden shed which is sloping and needs setting straight. 3. Creating an organic garden and cooking (perhaps that is 4?). Males or females with or without children, I have lots of space here for as many as ten people! The rebuilding work is heavy (heavy pieces of timber to be put in place) but the gardening light (is up to yourself) the soil here is absolutely beautiful, rich and loamy.
Really a very beautiful part of France/Europe and a lot to see on your days off: Saturday and Sunday. I prefer non-smokers, no heavy drinkers and no late risers. If you are able to help a lot then of course I can arrange my own schedule to fit your own plan but I prefer to be out of my bed by 9am so that the afternoons are free to enjoy, but wish to find people who are flexible and perhaps don't have an exact schedule - take it easy, but... more inside
