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

Host is a Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher who runs mindfulness retreats. Have just moved house so need help in autumn & spring with gardening and landscaping. Also help with website and social media would be appreciated.

Vegetarian organic cooking. You will have your own room in our house. Prefer people with experience.

Beautiful location on edge of medieval village with train station. South facing with view over forest - fantastic walks. We have bikes to borrow. Great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding.

What we offer is space for you to reconnect with yourself and nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.

We are a family of four, two children aged 10 years old and 5 years old. We live in a beautiful situation in the Ariege mountains off grid, using solar electricity and spring water. We choose to live without many modern conveniences : no TV, and limited internet access... yes... a life like this is still possible!
We have a compost toilet and wood fired water for shower.

Helpers accommodation is a small separate straw bale hut (see photo below) with a double bed, wood stove, kitchen and running cold water. The toilet and shower are separate and communal. For a little privacy (for us and the helpers!), we can have shared meals every lunch time, and every second evening. We would provide three meals a day in return for 5 hours of work per day, with weekends free. We have 2000 metres of land with vegetable garden, orchard and fruit bushes. We keep chickens duck and rabbits for food and eggs, we also have donkeys for keeping the land cleared and a pet dog and cats.

We work on a superb site in the Pyrenees (in the mountains in Ariege - South-west of France)and renovate a small farm with a big organic garden in permaculture, donkeys(3). We live in a sustainable and low impact way.
We need help for the garden (planting, weeding) and the rehabilitation of the houses, taking care of the animals, helping us for cutting wood, making fences, hay making in summertime, and also participating a little bit at the house cleaning while we have also a small B&B activity in summertime. For the fall, we would welcome a guy who can help us with rebuilding stone-walls, wood cutting, fences fixing, land-cleaning...
We expect helpers minimum 25 years old who can speak and understand french; and who have already some physical and hand-working experience.
We are also musicians..

Once a working farm, our B&B lies in the Gers with a splendid view of the High Pyrenees. We bought it at May 2015 to realize our dream of peace and harmony.We are a german couple , who lived 14 years on Mallorca. Now we found this place to live our dream and we would like to share this place with our guests. They should be able to recover from their stressful life. We want to provide ourselves with vegetables. These are to grow organic. For this, we need helpers in the garden in the spring 2016. We continue to expand our animal park. At this moment are chickens, 3 sheep, 3 dogs and 2 cats here.For this we need helping hands , too. To build outside stable etc. Also , we started to make a kitchen in the Guesthouse and renovate all the other things , they are to renovate at an old farm , too.

Situated in the foothills of the Ariege Pyrenees, our litlle farm is open for those who wants to share our experiences, enriched by the spirit of permaculture: respect for the land and the living, observation and cooperation, awareness and cultivation of abundance by the cultivation of regenerative and intuitive systems.

Our crops are mainly vegetables and medicinal plants and fruits. We work towards a domestic self-sufficiency, and a sharing of the abundance that we cultivate in the naturally fertile valley soil.

Rooms in our guest-house are made available to WWOOFers, with internet access, exterior dry toilets.

All innovations and ideas rejoining autonomy and self-sufficiency are welcome.

The butterfly of the springs smiles upon you :-)
