lI am 88 yrs old still active enough to live in and maintain a restored water mill 8 km. from Castillon-la-Bataille; about a km down hill from the village of St Philippe d'Aiguilhe.
I was an art-history, archeology, and English teacher until my husband and I bought a small vineyard that we worked on with helpers, Woofers, etc., and always enjoyed them.
When my son and family took over the vineyard, we moved to the mill nearby with 5 hectares of woods and meadows.
Now, on my own, I need help in preparing the vege and flower gardens for winter in November and particularly January-March, bringing in wood for heating and keeping small trees, branches and brambles from invading the meadows. I often need general repairs around an old stone house. A driver's licence is essential so you can drive my car wherever needed.
You would have an independent "studio apt." with double bed, kitchen facilities and bathroom. I can provide meals if need be and for vegetarians though I'm not one... more inside

Who want to pick some grappes ??? Big work but nice group, good food, fire,... a great experience !

Hey everyone!

We're a young couple with a baby taking over a beautifull 9ha vineyard in an excellent terroir of Bordeaux area. Even if we have experience in viticulture & oenology, we're only getting into our third year on our own. Big challenge ! We'll be trying as much as we can to put biodynamy in practice and we're also bringing our horse in the vine.
A nice chance for people curious about wine to learn more about it and for those who simply like having some physical excercice in an amazing nature ;-)
For now, we're looking for the harvest from the 2nd up the 11/12th of october ! we'll be picking all together and sort the grappes after !

Hope to cross your way in the vine soon !

Julien

Hello
I am looking for a couple of helpers who are passionate about nature and animals who could help me this Autumn at le Peyrail. I would really like to tidy the terraces and sort out the horse field and the paddock.

There will also be some general cleaning in the house as guests come and go.

Autumn is a beautiful time of year especially here in SW France it is still warm enough to eat out on the terraces and the horses love the cooler weather.

I would love to get some planting done around the house and even a little vegetable plot prepared for next spring.

Our house was originally three 19th century vine workers cottages, although some of the original walls are much older. It has been beautifully converted into one house set into the hillside with lots of terraces and a two acre garden which slopes down through orchards to a tiny stream flanked by a bamboo forest.

When we moved here two years ago, all our animals came with us, so there is always work to be do... more inside

Hi, I live in a beautiful manor house that was built in 1825, the house is situated on the grounds of an old monastery, there are two chapels (13th and 15th century) in the courtyard, the house has its own water source. What is needed is a bit of cheering up (harmonising) The work will be, painting the walls, (see photo) shutters and windows, some indoor painting, gardening, making a vegetable garden, tiding up the carp pond, cutting down bamboo, (Making bamboo art?) and some general maintenance....The aim is to make this fun:) It is a lovely enviroment, ideal for creative people. In the past the house was owned by an artist, and a concert pianist.....Now by me, a rock guitarist...Lol..It is peaceful most of the time.

In the house there are two kitchens, 4 Bathrooms with showers, and 5 WC's so one can have privacy if you wish.....

There a table-tennis table in the orangerie, and a swimming pool for use in the summer…Unless you enjoy a cold dip?

I am often asked to play guit... more inside

Bonjour, nous sommes Yoann et Florence un couple avec 2 enfants de 8 ans et 13 ans. nous sommes installés en agriculture sur la commune d'Hasparren, au Pays Basque. Nous y avons acheté une ferme il y a deux ans et nous avons décider d'adhérer au cahier des charges et à la charte IDOKI, car nous croyons aux valeurs de l'agriculture paysanne, qui met en valeur le contact humain, le respect de l'environnement et le travail à échelle humaine. Nous réalisons nous même tous les travaux en relation avec la maison et la ferme. Nous avons un troupeau de brebis laitière avec lequel nous faisons de la tomme de brebis sous l'AOP Ossau Iraty ainsi qu'un cheptel de poules pondeuses élevées en plein air. Nous avons envie de partager notre expérience avec des personnes qui sont désireuses de s'ouvrir à des valeurs qui nous sembles essentielles comme le respect de la nature, de l'être humain, du bien être animal et du travail. Nous aimons également échanger et partager autour d'un bon repas.

Located in the bask country our farm has 4 fields of actions :
Conservation of local and traditional trees and plants varieties from the Basque country and South West France
Regeneration of the soil, landmarks and ecosystem within the local rural community
Passing on and exchange of craftsmanship, knowledge, skills and experiences
Artistic and cultural creation at the meeting point of the local tradition and modern vision.

The project was originally initiated by me Clement, the owner of the land in a process of personal life transition. He was then looking for an opportunity to move closer to his family and involve his father (suffering from Alzeihmer) into a project connected to the earth. The whole project took a much wider turn when he encountered Marlène Vissac and Guillaume Damay: there was all the space needed to create a vibrant hub of permaculture in the Basque Country.

Open to everyone, our farm provides permaculture courses and organizes workshops where permacu... more inside

This is a place for nature lovers as we live in the middle of a large forest estate in the south west of France. Plenty of wildlife (deer,stags,wild pigs) and small roads perfect for biking ,walking them, swimming in the lake. We are a kiwi/french couple and would love to share our place with anyone with enthusiasm to help get things done on this large property ( organic gardening, cleaning barns, cooking, painting...)
Masonry and general building and masonery skills would be greatly appreciated as there are outside stairs and lots of bits and pieces that need doing. We can usually find something to suit most people's skills/interests.
There is plenty to visit in the area: villages with local markets, prehistoric caves, canoeing...
This place would best suit a couple or someone with their own transport as we live 10 minutes drive to anywhere but there are bikes available to get around.

Don't hesitate to contact us for more info.
