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 5 hours he... more inside

Bonjour,

Nous sommes Lucie et Clément, un couple de 24 et 26 ans. Nous connaissons le helpx puisque nous en avons fait en Nouvelle-Zélande dans plusieurs familles. Nous possédons une petite maison avec un jardin, à SAINT-JEAN-D'ANGELY, à moins d'une heure de l'océan atlantique. Le travail que nous demandons n'est vraiment pas difficile : ménage, rangement, jardinage, parfois peinture,... Nous serons heureux de vous faire visiter de très beaux endroits autour de chez nous. Nous avons une petite chatte prénommée Bianca. Nous adorons la nature, les animaux, les voyages, le sport, la cuisine, et nous ne mangeons pas de viandes ni de produits animaux. Nous avons de la place pour une personne non fumeur, qui sera hébergée chez nous. Nous parlons un peu Anglais et Lucie a quelques notions d'espagnol.

** Currently looking for helpers for 2018.

I have a bed and breakfast located in Langeais, a town on the banks of the Loire, and am looking for help to run it as my partner works in England. The sort of help I need includes house-sitting and dog-sitting, serving a simple breakfast, some cleaning and laundry duties, and other general household chores and gardening. If you're interested in more practical jobs we would always appreciate those handy with a paintbrush, but above all the top priority is looking after the clients.

If you do not have a car, there is a good train service linking Langeais to Tours, Saumur, Angers and even as far as Nantes. There is so much to see and do in this very beautiful part of France, in particular if you're interested in visiting some of the many historic chateaus in the area.

I like everyone to feel instantly at ease and comfortable. There's always a beer, wine or an ice-cream on offer! We look forward to hearing from you.

We are an easy going English family (3 children, 16 & 17yrs at school in the UK and 19yrs living with us) who have recently purchased a large historic property near Agen in need of renovation. The house is habitable (with heating and bathrooms) but we will be reconstructing the interior to suit us.

Any assistance with general diy, landscaping, gardening, pruning fruit trees, clearing brambles and walking our crazy dog or specific trades such as roofing, tiling (a large swimming pool),plastering or plumbing would be gratefully received.

A lot of the work we need help with is outside, we would also like to create a new vegetable garden/potager before the growing season. Only the strong and the hardy will be happy!
For 5 hours of your time a day (25 a week) we offer you a bed and delicious meals (we are not vegetarians and would find hosting a vegan very difficult). We have 2 comfortable double bedrooms spare and should have more available soon, with Helpx assistance!
