We have been in France for just over two years, starting as 'helpexers' ourselves and now living in the beautiful town of La Bastide de Serou in the foot hills of the pyrenees. Our daughter,Tilly is 9 years old and the resident french interpreter! We have a dog called Luna who is very friendly.

We need help with the renovation of our home! Nothing structural! Mostly sanding & painting.

You will stay on the top floor with amazing rooftop views There are a selection of beds to chose from and a and TV/DVD player. There is unlimited wifi.

I regularly pop into town (Foix or St Giron about 1/2hr away) and I'm happy to give you a lift, alternatively there are bikes available.

We live in a national park and you don't need to stroll far to find stunning views and beautiful walks. This region is also brilliant for climbing and cycling.

We are a French-American family looking for folks to help us out with various projects around our old stone village house in Ariege, midi-Pyrenees. Our village is a mountain village of little more than 100 permanent residents, and our house provides superb views of Pyreneen mountain peaks. Any folks interested in staying with us must love children and cats (we have 3 kids and 3 cats). We are looking for helpers in October of 2017. Things you should know about us: 1) we like to eat home-cooked meals with fresh organic veggies and fruits from our local farmer's market (mainly vegetarian), 2) we love hosting couples but prefer that each person can be independent, 3) we ask that our helpers also participate in our daily family lives (e.g. lending a hand occasionally), 4) a stay with us will not be a full immersion in french (although we all are fluent french speakers we make an effort to speak mainly English at home so that our kids will stay bilingual).

We are currently looking for ... more inside

Who we are

We're a young at heart couple of English early retirees who have converted a barn to a house, which we'd like some help a to finish, renovating what will become a gite and taking control of the garden, which is a bit of a jungle at the moment. Never having had a garden in England, we're on a steep learning curve with our plot of 5000 square metres (just over an acre).
We're both keen cyclists, Nick especially loves doing cols in the Pyrenees and he keeps bonsai trees. Jackie enjoys sewing, patchwork and most things crafty, and is an aspiring textile artist, teaches English and basic French and plays guitar, though not brilliantly. We're members of the local cycling and walking clubs and active members of the local community.

Where we are

We live in the Gers, in south west France, surrounded by vineyards and 4km from a small town whose proudest boast is its motor racing circuit.

The help we need and what we'll provide in exchange

We would expect 4-5 hours ... more inside

We are a Simon and Suzanne, a British couple running holiday accommodation in the Pyrenees from a large property with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In our thirteen years here we have welcomed holidaymakers from all over the world and introduced them to our lovely area, and many have returned to visit us several times. Our two children are now in their 20s and no longer live here.

In our 5 hectares of grounds we keep geese, ducks and chickens for eggs and/or meat. Completing the menagerie are two dogs and two cats.

Outside the main summer season, when we need our helpers to stay longer, we would like volunteers to stay for two weeks, but this period can be extended if both parties are happy with the arrangement. There will generally be some preparation of guest accommodation, preparation of wood for the boiler and hot tub maintenance. This time of year there is plenty of work to do outside in the garden. In addition there is some ongoing renovation work (conve... more inside

Hello!

We need help
- to take care of 6 horses (Landes ponies),
- to make wood and to clear the undergrowth ,
- to help us put up fences (preferably advancing towards winter when the ground will be more loose).

On a small farm that we renovate and develop, we carry out an agricultural activity (breeding horses and production of our fodder) in an organic way as a secondary activity (we have our professions in the tertiary: computer science and speech therapy).

We have two donkeys and begin our horse breeding, a henhouse, a vegetable garden which we find it hard to find time to take care of and develop. Welcome!

We are interested in the learning and development of English and Spanish in particular, in conversation. But we like to discover all languages ??and cultures. We have a very open mind.

We offer a welcome with accommodation in mobile home (old model but accommodation for small or medium stays, with internet connection, NB: the bathroom and the WC are unusable ... more inside

I live a basic self sufficient lifestyle isolated in a forest on the French countryside. I take care of my own food and breed animals for the meat. Not all the way, a supermarket is still part of the foodchain. I started my current lifestyle many years ago with a partner and am continuing the back to nature experience on my own. Living here brings energy and connection to nature and ourself.

I am looking for help in all the things that are part of my daily routine on my place, in my house and around in the forest. If you have a talent for cooking that would be very welcome, please share your knowledge to make me enjoy cooking more. Apart from that your hands and body are welcome for harvesting and preparing vegetables. For chopping firewood together with me (autumn and winter). Clean and maintain to keep everything in good function. To help me with repairs and construct new ideas. To take care of the animals etc. But also you as a person are welcome to communicate and exchange wi... more inside

Bonjour!

Sept/oct 17: we would be happy to host a handyman/woman for outdoor work in the garden and/or light renovation. Thank you!

We are a french family, Christian (61), Rosine (51)and Lili (14) with 4 delightful pets: Jingle and Geisha, our enthusiastic dogs and Gable and Chapati, our delightful cats.

Salut,

BESOIN D'AIDE ACTUELLEMENT POUR RÉCOLTER NOIX ET CHÂTAIGNES

Nous sommes installés depuis août 2016 dans une magnifique ferme en grès rose dans le Nord de l'Aveyron. Nous y avons déjà accueillis un chat, 2 ânes, 3 chèvres naines et quelques poules. Nous avons aussi planté un vaste verger et un potager en permaculture.

Mais nous avons encore du pain sur la planche pour mettre en place une ferme permaculturelle et pédagogique: entretenir le potager et le verger, mieux isoler la maison, accueillir d'autres animaux (abeilles, lapins, moutons...), organiser le système d'eau et d'énergie...

Notre mode de vie est très simple, produisant le moins de déchet possible et utilisant beaucoup de récup' et de recyclage. Nous n'avons pas de TV, frigo, lave-linge, et Internet uniquement par le téléphone mobile. Il n'y a pas de transport public depuis la ville, nous faisons du stop ou du covoiturage. Il y a une rivière au village (40 min à pied) et une cascade à 7km...

Merci de ... more inside
