Nous sommes 5 personnes sur le terrain, en train de nous installer.
Il y a eu plantation d'arbres fruitiers et ornementaux et jardins potagers.
Le plus gros du travail est maintenant l'entretien, la construction d'un batiment bioclimatique passif et une cave à champignons (bio avec des matériaux naturels : pierre, chaux, bois, chanvre...), aussi le bricolage et l'aménagement.
La place est au soleil, où poussent des figues, pêches, abricots, raisin, olives, pommes, poires et tout ce que vous voulez...
Il y a des sources, des arbres déjà grands et la mer et la neige sont à portée d'oeil.

Logement en chalet ou caravane.
Il n'y a pas de salle de bain à l'intérieur.
Toilette sèche.
Electricité solaire.
Interdit de fumer même à l'extérieur.

Nous dansons souvent.

Téléphoner plutôt entre 13h et 15h, ou de 18h30 à 19h30. Il convient d’être patient avec, car il passe par satellite & sous batteries solaires... Et je ne suis pas toujours à côt... more inside

September 2017

I am looking for a 25yr old + English speaking helper who must be able to drive (stick shift preferred) to help look after 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son.

Need help with shopping, school run and child-minding.

Also plenty to do around the house and garden if that's your thing.

-------

We are a family of three; John (dad), Lucie and Douglas. We have lived in Ceret in the south of France since July 2012.

Mum recently passed away so dad is coping on his own and could use some practical help.

John is British but has a business in Australia and gets back there a once a year to work. Lucie and Douglas were born in Australia.

Lucie is 12 years old and Douglas is 10 years. We are a bilingual family, but we speak more English than French at home.

You can eat and live with the family, but in general, there will be plenty of free time.

We also have a forest that we are converting into an orchard if you are interested in agriculture.

We live in a big 16th century isolated house with approximately 4 hectares of land (mainly chestnut trees). The property is situated in the Cévennes area (about 60 kilometers north of Nîmes) near Lasalle. The people living here are Philippe (full time), Julie (part time, as she often works in Paris), quite often friends who stay with us for a few days, even up to a month, customers (we host personal development, yoga and group psychotherapy retreats), and of course wwoofers ; ) We tend to practice vipassana meditation on a daily basis, and we are musicians. We are (almost) self-sufficient in organic vegetables that we grow exclusively for our own use and we like to experiment with alternative and healthy foods like fermented products (making of tempeh, natto and lacto-fermented carrots). We are keen on welcoming mature independent and responsible volunteers for discovering and participating in our different activities, depending on the time of year: clearing brambles, weeding, picki... more inside

There are some shops, bars cafes and restaurants in the town which also has a museum, cinema, library, (English and French), swimming pools, attractive scenery and a lake nearby for which there is a bus service in the summer. There are plenty of good walks around here with a few walking groups as well. I am about 10 minutes walk into the town. I need help with decorating mostly preparation and painting and a some D.I.Y,some clearing, also ther is some work in the garden which needs pruning and cutting back. Willing to provide meals and accommodation for about 5 hours of work for 5 days out of 7. Internet is available and I could provide English lessons if wanted. English and French spoken.

*****UPDATE 13/9/17 we are looking for someone to help us for two weeks or more in October 2017 building a metal frame roof ie welding. Anyone with experience in this area would be perfect but people with general construction/renovation/DIY skills will be fine. Enthusiasm is the most important criteria! ******

Me and Helen are an English couple in our 50s living in Le Moulin, a renovated 18th century watermill near Carcassonne in the south of France.
Over the past 10 years we have renovated the building, built three gites, a swimming pool, started a gite rental business and a small English language school catering mainly for local children.
We have about two acres of land which, bit by bit, we are transforming into a garden.
We have a lot of ideas about how to take the project forward so the building and garden work are ongoing.
However it is a lot of work so we need a bit of help!
We were thinking that a single person or couple could stay in one of our gites with food and... more inside

We (Joep & Miranda) offer a wonderful place for helpers in the sunny South of France.

We take pride in continuously improving our domaine and every year there are new projects to tackle. Two years ago we finalised the renovation of the old barn of the domaine and with help of a lot of friends and a great helper, we realised three brand new holiday accommodations for our guests. Last year the pool area got completely renovated with the help of 3 great helpers.

This year we are focusing on a full renovation of our own house as well as work in our garden and general maintenance of the domaine. We are now looking for one or two additional people to help with our building/ renovation project. We are especially interested in people who are looking to stay for a longer period of time, but can also use help for shorter periods of time. You would assist with re-building outside and in-side walls, placing of doors and windows, plumbing, plastering, painting, tiling, fitting of kitchen a... more inside

Hi deep-France lovers,

Welcome in the Languedoc's countryside to join our team!
I've been restoring this old house for 5 years -well, we had a break these last two years- with friends and we do every type of jobs: masonry, frames, gardening, an helper even set up a forge! We also decorate, make plasters and fine painting in the chapel; it's nice if you have skills but there is also place for beginners. We work a good five hours a day (not on Sundays!) but it's flexible: feel really free to take days out to enjoy the area, we're near Saint-Guilhem-le-désert and other beautiful places to visit.

It's a XVII century house that comes from my family, lot of character and space but only matress to sleep on; comfort of XXIst century is coming on: electricity, washing-maching and even hot water in the bathroom, you're not dreaming!. Although it's too geek for the house, wi-fi is there. And a well-tuned piano.

We cook together and we look forward to combine local and world recip... more inside

Hi, I won't welcome anybody at home before february 2018 ! Sorry !

A very nice small house with a guest room, 500 meters from the beach.
15mn from Sète and 30 mn from Montpellier.

I propose a stay in the guest room.

My needs : a help to care for my two cats and my dog when I travel from time to time, so you are obviously a pet lover and you like to take long walks with the dog.

You will mainly help me to make corrections on my novel (under writing), grammar, vocabulary, syntax and some reworking on the style which is sometimes "too French".

So you are an English mother tongue language person (please don't contact me if you are not)
you already have skills about translation, writing and literature.
Help needed variable during the day but never more than 4 hours a day, five days a week.
You'll have your private room and half or all meals included depending of the work,

I would like to invite you to spend some time in this magnificent area in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
The mount 'Canigou' seems planted at the edg of my garden,2874 m above the sealevel and sacred for all Catalans.Looking on Prades as from a balkony,a pleasant house to live.
Every 23th of June 'la trobada' assembles Catalans from the north as from the south (Spain), a huge fire is made on top and brought down to multiples towns and villages where there's music and dancing celebrating summer solstice.
While staying at my place I'd love you to discover all this, easy and so cheap ( for 1 euro one way ride on bus or train) trough the whole department!
I will need trees to be cut and other cleaning up, having experience with a chainsaw is a plus!
Otherwise some gardening, mending the acces to the site, install an irrigation system(drip), vetg garden, little jobs on an around the house...
Accomodation in the house or tent, according to what's available.
I ask 5 ... more inside
