Help on my permaculture project in Central France,
Welcome to the trantrangest place on Earth!

Salut les amis !

My name is Martin, I am 3 years and half, I live in the countryside, alone, the parents gone, it’s good times going on!, I live in an ancient farm with an open field, in a remote quiet place called Trantranges, which I feel is so nice and full of vibrations…possibilities...horses, wild horses in my mind…

It just happened so : now my home is in Trantranges !, not exactly in the Mississippi (though it might be possible to play music like you never did before), but more precisely in CENTRAL France, south of the BERRY – north of CREUSE. This area is called “La Marche” because located on the first step of the Massif Central Mountains, but here we are only 4000 meters high, oh 400m sorry.

On the first years, I enjoyed to be “the lonely seeder”: I started to settle the old place on my own way, planting a lot of new trees, creating lively gardens, & mostly walking ar... more inside

We are Geoff & Jane and we have a small house situated close to Lac de Chambon and surrounded by beautiful farmland. The house is an old stone fermette and, although an on-going project, is comfortable and charming.

We offer peace & tranquility, a warm welcome, a double (or twin) clean, comfortable bedroom with own shower room, 3 meals per day, and the chance to experience all that our beautiful part of France has in abundance in return for your assistance with our projects in the house and garden.

Vegetarian meals are available if preferred.

Current projects include plasterboarding of small kitchen ceiling and on-going creation of loft bedroom (window is in but that's about all!) Some removing of existing boarding to rafters, plasterboarding and possibly plumbing for an ensuite. Several smaller 'finishing-off' jobs and painting. Always general work to be done in the garden (mainly grasscutting) but would like to develop vegetable plot.

This is a small property comprising three self-contained cottages and the owner's house, set in very peaceful and attractive countryside. We have a productive vegetable garden, some chickens and established grounds which do require attention. We are not isolated - the nearest village being 2km from us.

Accommodation for helpers is of a high standard, separate self-contained, and comfortable. Work would be simple gardening and DIY. All food is provided and the main meal shared with your host who could also teach you cooking. Guaranteed a warm welcome and you can enjoy swimming, cycling, walking, visiting chateaux and markets, a vehicle would be an advantage but cycles can be borrowed and bus routes to near by towns are good.

Please check out my website for pictures of our place.

Hi

My girlfriend and I are starting a B+B and snack bar near Eguzon (36170 Cinq Routes Parnac), Indre, central France. She is French and I am English.

There are three bedrooms to let and the snack bar serves basic burgers etc wth steaks and fish and chips availabe. We hope to have two Icelendic horses and a small pony by the middle of the summer which will be available for short rides for the customers.

We need help with everything! If you are willing to have a go at - gardening, helping with the snack bar and rooms, working with the horses, talking with guests and customers, cutting the grass (we do have a tractor and the horses will help too), feeding the chickens and being friendly and flexible...then give us a ring.

Meals, small caravan accomodation, WiFI and telephone available, keep your tips but sorry we are on a shoe string setting this up so we can't afford a wage. Hours flexible, to be worked out with you but as a guide 6 hrs a day, 5 days a week - week-ends ... more inside

We are Ged and Karen, an English couple with a young daughter looking for a couple of able bodies and minds to help with a brand new project. Having lived around the world, from Moscow to Kuala Lumpur it is time to settle in one place for a while!

Our vision is to develop a mixed smallholding with a small eco campsite. What we are starting with is a beautiful property (already renovated), three hectares (7 acres) of attached land, gorgeous views in the South of the Loire region and importantly a good stock of wine :)

The property is a peaceful 4km bike ride from Neuvy-Saint-Sepulchre where you’ll find bars restaurants, shops and a beautiful fishing lake. We are also very close to a bus route allowing access to the beautiful old towns of Aregnton-sur-Creuse (train station), Le Chatre and Chateauroux(train station). We are also located very close to the Brenne Nation Park, with its ‘thousand lakes’ and parkland it’s a nature lovers paradise.

The work will be varied and int... more inside
