We are Dom & Liz, and run a B&B/gite business from our renovated farmhouse, set in 7 hectares with panoramic views of the Pyrenees mountains.

We're closed for the spring to tackle landscaping and renovation projects - digging the vegetable garden, building woodsheds and indoors a yoga studio.

The work is quite varied and would suit people that like physical/outdoor tasks. Any practical skills are appreciated.

We look for around 25 hours of help per week, in exchange for accommodation and food.

Accommodation is normally in our adjoining gite, and you have access to wifi, sat tv & free calls to uk/us landlines.

We are 5 miles from the nearest town. We can lend you a bike, and help out with lifts now and again, but its essentially a rural location.

We are Mo and David. We have retired from a very busy life running a spiritual centre in Kent England. We moved to this beautiful area in South West France in November 2007. We are both artists, David works in wood mostly although he is also fully skilled in building and maintenance. David and Mo built a kiln last summer and Mo is returning to making ceramics after a long absence. Volunteers would be welcome to use the pottery and art studio in their spare time..

We have about four and half hectars (about 12 acres) of land, which consists of woodland and meadows, which is cut once a year by a farmer, and a rose garden which surrounds the house. we also have a thriving vegetable garden.

We have an organic vegetable and fruit garden. We are very conscious of the necessity of being organic, but have had to use a limited amount of weed sprays on the ornamental garden.


We are ten minutes from the nearest town, in a very rural area, we have bikes and lots of quiet countrysid... more inside

We're a middle age'sh couple living in the South of France with grown up kids in the UK who visit as much as they can. We're still trying to decide what to do when we grow up but in the meantime we're renovating a barn and a Farmhouse ready for holiday accommodation in the summer. The place is set in 8 hectares of woodland and meadow on a sunny hillside near a few picturesque villages and only 45 minutes from the beautiful city of Toulouse (Train station 10 minutes drive away) We have 2 swimming pools, gardens and the most stunning views of the Pyrenees you could imagine. We offer really nice accommodation in the gites attached to the farmhouse and opportunities for you to have time to explore the area and get to know this most unspoiled area of France (Haute Garonne/Ariege) and have some fun living and working with us. In return we ask for help with building, decorating and gardening work.

Chris and Maggie live in a large house which was renovated a few years ago. We just outside the village of Varen, about 100 kms north of Toulouse. Chris is semi-retired, having worked in UK TV and radio as a drama writer and producer and subsequently as an internet consultant, providing advice to the creative industries on how to manage content online. Maggie is an artist and part time teacher of English and French. We have both travelled extensively in Europe and the rest of the world. Nowadays we still spend a certain amount of time travelling, occasionally working away from home, but otherwise occupy ourselves with gardening, tinkering with this and that, reading. Maggie works in her studio and I have a work room in the house.
The house is surrounded by its own land, with gardens, woodland and a river for swimming and canoeing. There is a railway nearby with direct trains to Toulouse. We are both sociable people, taking great enjoyment from cooking and eating, good conversatio... more inside

We have two houses, one is our home and one is a 4 bedroom gite, which we will offer for help outside of the main holiday season. So you would be staying in the gite and self catering. We have added the link to our gite, see our website link above.


We would like help this year with, painting, decorating and especially getting the garden straight. So someone with an interest and understanding in gardening would be great.
We could do with help during April, May and possibly June 2014. A couple would be ideal, partners or friends. A fortnight would be great but longer if you like it and could offer other help.

We have to say that we live in the middle of nowhere and have only one car that we need the use of, so that may be a problem but we go to the post office most days and so could arrange for lifts. If you had your own transport that would be even better.

Thank you very much

We run a small rose nursery and a display garden. We are looking for someone who likes horticulture and could help us in the garden and nursery. A wide range of tasks, including weeding, potting up, clearing away prunings and pruning. Just generally lending a hand. We have two dogs and two cats, so better for someone who likes animals a bit and is not allergic. Ideally we would like someone during March or April - the length of stay is negotiable. Work would be something like four hours a day.

Our situation is rural, about 5 kms from the nearest village which has the essentials. About 85 kms north of the Pyrenees, if you like the mountains.

Organic cereal farm and vegetable production. Two sets of accommodation for two different projects. An apartment in the loft space of an 18th century granary next to the organic vegetable production. Help here will involve sowing, planting, weeding, maintenance of the vegetable and garden areas. At the cereal farm, accommodation is in the farmhouse which you will have to yourselves and which has views over the pyrenees. General maintenance and upkeep and field work depending on the seasons. It will involve some use of tractors and some heavy work.

We need help right now to help us cut wood for heating and cooking purposes. We are aiming to be self sufficient in heating and cooking. We have an organic vegetable & flower garden on the Causses de Quercy in the picturesque department of Lot, 46, SW France. We need help in the garden too, where there is plenty of planting, potting on & sowing to do. Other jobs include weeding, harvesting, watering & general development of the garden & potager. Ideally, we need someone with some experience but more, we need people who are hard working and prepared to get stuck in. The reward is that you will be welcomed warmly into our home. You will be well fed and looked after. This could be a long stay opportunity for the right person. A couple will be considered.

We can offer comfortable, heated accommodation in the house in your own room. Toilet, shower & clothes washing facilities in the room next door. Helpers eat with us and, if you are so inclined, you are encouraged to cook using the f... more inside
