Hello i'm Jean-Pierre, i'm 55. I'm living in a small town in the south of France. I have 3 grown up children. One lives in Millau, and my twins daughter are often away travelling around the world.
I have a beautiful old house that i'm renovating with a big backyard (you can even see dears sometimes).
There is a supermarket few meters from the house and a park with the river to go swimming or kayaking. You can join the center of the town by feet or bus.

Millau is famous for its Viaduc (biggest Bridge of Europe) and extreme sport (paragliding, kayaking, rock-climbing..). The town is pretty quiet during the winter but there is a lot of things to do in summer (traditional market, walks..) There are a lot of beautiful villages around and some castles.
Also, Montpellier, a big city close the the mediterranean sea is only 1h15 from Millau. During the winter the skiing places are not so far too.

We're currently working on a vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse. We're clearing land, planting, making wooden raised beds, laying paths, etc. Outside we're also building stone walls, building block walls, rendering block walls and pointing old stone walls. Inside we're decorating bedrooms and hallways.

We can offer volunteers their own room, and plenty of food. We're looking for capable people who with a sense of humour, who're prepared to muck in and help out and we promise to look after them.


ABOUT US

We're a middle-aged couple who settled out here in the Ariege region of the Pyrenees about three years ago. Our kids had all left home and we thought it was time to have our own adventure. We would describe ourselves as easy-going, young-at-heart people with a good sense of humour and a good work/life balance. We have lots of friends here and a great social life consisting mainly of having friends round for dinner, or going out to their houses. ... more inside

We've just bought a 16th century auberge in a beautiful medieval town and need some help with preparing the building for our business. We'll be paying builders to do the major works but we'll need help with finishing.

We're especially interested in people with building experience, plumbers and carpenters.

We offer vegetarian food and accommodation, free internet access and the chance to spend time in one of the most beautiful towns in the south west of France.

We are an English couple with a 9 month old son and will eventually be running cycling holidays.

Hello people, would you like to come to the sunny south west of France?
I am building a house from scratch from nearly all old and reclaimed materials.
The house will be no ordinary building, but it will be of top quality.
I have been building houses for the last 30 years and this is an opportunity for someone to learn all the relevant trades.
I will also be training a couple of Spanish horses and there is here an opportunity for people to ride or if they dont know how then to learn.
There is also farm work to be done like fencing and hay making.
There is a very clean and tidy caravan, biggish and very homely and I will be in a mobile home where we can all cook and eat and chat.
I have a second car that could be used by you if you are trustworthy.
The town of Aignan is 4 minutes away with a shop or two and a couple of cool bars .
I am also hoping to find somebody who can help me with some art exhibitions in the spring summer, I am also an artist.

We are a family of three, including a two-and-a-half-year-old little girl, living in a house in the very South of France, 5 minutes from a quaint historical little town in the Pyrenees.

The house has a large garden and a couple pastures and is set in a very quiet area (a hamlet surrounded by pasture land) in the foothills of the Pyrenees (40 minutes from ski resorts and 2 hours from the sea).

We are francophones and I am an English teacher at the local high school. I've visited 22 countries and lived in the UK and Canada. When I was a child, we used to host foreign students who wanted to learn French and I loved the experience.

We are very "Nature"-oriented, eat organic food, and have a vegetable garden as well as some fruit trees.


The garden is big and used to be an "abandoned" pasture, so it's fairly "rustic".

A lot of work has been put into it over the last few years (clearing, planting fruit trees and raspberry bushes, setting up a vegetable garden, etc...), as ... more inside

My associate and I manage a bar/restaurant on the nice campsite Domaine Duravel (4 stars) in the Lot valley in the southwest of France. The campsite is meanly visited by French, Belgian and Dutch people. The campsite has 280 places and has several swimming pools and other sports facilities. It is situated in the beautiful nature of the lotvalley, surrounded by vineyards and next to the river. The bar and restaurant are open every day but we expect from you only 5 hours of work 5days a week. This will leave you more then enough time to mingle with local people and tourists, visit the beautiful monuments and villages in the Lot valley (like Rocamadour, Saint Cirq Lapopie etc). All summer season several parties are organised in the surrounding villages.

We'll provide a bed in a house next to the bar, with bathroom (shared with others). You can use the internet freely. Breakfast, lunch ad dinner can be eaten freely with the rest of the staff. You can use the swimming pools.

Most important is that I am french and do not speak english; apart from french, I speak spanish, italian and german.

I am looking for someone for a shortish stay, even just a few days, to do some basic garden clearance and housework.

This is not a place with a big group of helpers, and I cannot be with you all the time, since I go out to work. I provide all food and wine, and you have your own room in the house. Also, I have 4 cats.

I live in a little hamlet about 10 minutes from Villefranche de Rouergue, but there is no public transport. I will take you on little outings occasionally.

Small house in village in Ariege with small garden. Would need help with gardening, some decorating and DIY. At the moment have a very neglected and overgrown garden in need of much attention and a small house requiring decorating and updating ready for letting out. If two people - would have to share twin room.
This is excellent walking country, climbing, kayaking and other outdoor activities. The village has a bar and a couple of restaurants should a helper wish for outside refreshments!
Wifi available
Nearest railway station Tarascon-sur-Ariege
