My husband and I have bought an old limestone house in the northern area of The Gers near Condom - in the heart of the Armagnac producing area. We are approximately 3 kms from the nearest shops and 11 kms from major shopping/supplies.
We are renovating this old house and undertaking landscaping the gardens including a man made lake and two large ponds.

At present we are building a gite extension which when ready to be inhabited, would be the accommodation for Helpx guests.
We are searching for those wanting a working holiday - most particularly with skills of stone masonry (lots of stone retaining walls needing repair) gardening and landscaping, paths and paving and other handy man work.

Our area is very beautiful although not a major tourist area, there is much to see and explore.

We have a beautiful farm house small holding surrounded by woodland and gardens. There are small houses and chalets that we have dotted around our property and in the woods that offer the perfect place for our helpers to stay. I'm a French chef/language teacher and my husband is a writer/photographer. In the summer we rent out our property and run cultural/creative courses in the shoulder seasons.
We are looking for honest, willing people who don't mind doing outdoorsy odd-jobs as we prepare our house for the summer. No skills are required but initiative and good communication is a must. You would be expected to do 4 to 5(very flexible)hrs a day in the months of April-June for any length of time. For accommodation you would have the choice of your own house in the woods or own room in the family house depending on the amount of privacy you require. All your meals will be provided for and I can assure that we eat very well!

We live out of the way on a hillside overlooking a huge ... more inside

Hi,
We are a family of four, and as my husband will be working in another country for 2 months and my son and daugther are studying away from home, I will be needing help before Christmas to get the house and the garden ready for the Christmas family time !

My name is Corinne, I am a French literature teacher, so this is a good place to improve your french; otherwise no problem because I love speaking English.
I will be very happy to have a helper or a couple coming for 1 to 3 weeks between right now and mid december, I would need help 5 hours a day, 5 days per week.
The help that I need is basically maintenance job in the house, gardening ( the garden does need some work ), and probably a bit of cleaning.

The historic center of Albi is a ten minute walk from the house.


We have a big house with a garden, a swimming pool outside for the summer, we live in the center of Albi so when you have done 5 hours of helping you can go visit the beautiful and famous city of Albi,... more inside

Hi, we are June and Oz and we live in the Haute Pyrenees. We have a few assorted animals ie. chickens,ducks, dogs, cat and a pony. The house is in the process of renovation and we have a food shop that we run from home.
The renovation and general help in and out of the house are the main reasons that we are looking for help so if you like being outside and are comfortable with animals it would be good for you.
The accommodation is in the house. There is internet and T.V.
We feel that a couple or 2 or more friends would enjoy the experience more than a single person as we are 3km from a small town which has a few shops and a couple of bars but is not a really lively place.However, we are able to drop you off in other towns when we can.
This place is lovely for those who enjoy beautiful and natural surroundings. We have a small lake which is home to many frogs and frogs do sing! There are also sheep in the fields and and therfore there will be countryside noise. We have bycicle... more inside

We have recently bought an old Gascony farm in the beautiful Gers countryside which we are in the process of converting into living accommodation and gites.
We are a friendly, easy-going couple who would welcome an extra pair of hands as soon as possible to help us out with general renovation work (some carpentry/general building experience would be a bonus). A love of animals would also be an advantage as we currently have a dog, cats, ferrets, pygmy goats, chickens, ducks and a tortoise!
We offer comfortable accommodation, good food and light-hearted company.
We are located in a rural position with stunning views over open countryside but not far from local villages.
If you feel you would like to experience this lovely area of SW France and could happily help us with some of our renovations, please do contact us.

If you want visiting Ariege it is a really nice area with a lot of prehistoric site and a lot of bush walk across the mountains, rock climbing and you can ski in winter. We will be happy to give you a bed and 3 meals a day in exchange of small work gardening in spring and summer, cutting wood in autumn, and house cleaning in winter. This is just an example contact us prior and will let you know what happen at the moment. We are French speaking and know just a little bit of English but we are willing to learn more and we can always understand by body language :)

See you soon !
