I have a traditional small fermette in a beautiful river valley in mid-France. I am English (but my dog is French) and I want to have sheep, chickens, a place to allow people to study (converted barn) and experience the tranquillity and proximity to nature. It is truly the most wonderful place to experience a peaceful way of life. At night there is no light pollution and the only sounds are singing frogs,nightingales, crickets and owls! You will sleep in a charming vintage caravan and have the choice of self-catering or eating with me (or a mixture of both.) I will take you out to eat in a restaurant once a week. I can cater for alternative diets. There is also a lovely covered outdoor area which you can use. I need all sorts of help with gardening, re-creating an old farm pond, building work, tree planting and so on. I speak English and French and understand a little Italian, German and Dutch. I work with a Flemish speaker who can translate if necessary.

Hi, we are a Belgian/Dutch couple, retired and living in the Charente in France. We live in a farmhouse with our dogs and cats. We also have 5 horses that live out in a herd.
We are looking for help with the general maintenance of our place. Which is painting, weeding, repairing fences etc.

We can offer you a gite with a big bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with a shower and toilet. There is also a seperate living room with a small television for English tv.
We have a very relaxed way of living and we would expect you to work 4 hours a day. Sundays and every afternoon is free time to explore the beautifull countryside. We have bycicles that can be used and there are lots of trails for hiking or mountbiking.
There are beautifull old castles that can be visited .We have wifi.

I live on the edge of La Rochefocauld in the Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine. It's a nice little town with a lovely chateau by the river and good transport links into our local city, Angouleme and to Limoges.

Any help will be appreciated with things like gardening, decorating, plastering, carpentry, plumbing - any house and garden stuff really :)

My native language is English so obviously English speakers would be welcome but a French speaker would also be welcome to give me some much needed practice!

The number of helpers I could accommodate is fairly flexible.

Children are welcome - my son is 11 and would be happy to have company.

We are looking for a couple to help tend our organic garden and chickens in the small village of St. Pierre-de-Maille. We would also like help with projects such as improvements,eg some painting (you would be living in what we call the "Hobbit House" due to it's adorable coziness.) Additionally,I am in the process of promoting my book, "Entwined, Sisters and Secrets from the Silent World of Artist Judith Scott;" preference would be given to someone interested in working with me with FB, twitter, arranging speaking engagements,emails and general promotion.

We are an easy-going , semi-retired couple, both of us writers, splitting our time between our French house on the river and the Bay Area of California. We have welcomed a number of wonderful helpx friends into our lives in years past and hope for more.

Bicycles and canoes are available for your use. The village is a great place to practice your French. ( Plus we are working on ours) This is a wonderful area for biking an... more inside

i live in a beautiful 300year old farmhouse which i am slowly renovating. With lovley big old barns. I need help finishing off bits in the house and for next summer I need help with changing beds and cleaning in the mornings as I run a very busy B&B . I have a caravan that can be used for accommodation which is in my garden . I have 1 big dog 3 cats 6 chickens and my neighbors donkey who lives in my field. My house is in the heart of the countryside and is very peaceful. It would be better if you had a car or some sort of transport as the nearest small village is 15 mins walk and the bigger town is 20 mins with a car and I am not sure how often the bus runs. I love cooking and am vegan but will cook meat for who ever stays if needed. It's a beautiful place to come and stay do a bit of work and then enjoy the area. I have an above ground pool that can be used and a jacuzzi. I am very laid back but just need help for this season as bookings are coming in daily .....:)

I would be happy to host a helper en march and April.
I live in an old but rénovanted house in a nice village. I have a garden in front and behind my house, which need to be clean. Spring will come, so everything will grow very quickly. I have also painting to do ( windows, shutters ).
It's more funny to work with somebody than alone.
I like also to show you the nice surrounding of my area, do cycling or walking tours, meet my friends with you and go to Poitiers, which is a very nice university town.
I travel a lot ( so some months of a year I'm abroad) and I have contacts with foreign students in Poitiers. I like the
ecologique way of live, I like to live simple and happy.
I have also a profil on couch surfing and workaday.

Hello to you, and welcome to our HelpX info page. We hope you will find our page interesting, informative, and most of all, appealing to you.

Kath and I are down-to-earth Yorkshire ex-pats who would want to make you feel welcome, at home, & relaxed at our Belle Maison, which is about 150 years old. We live in the commune of St Pardoux, Deux-Sevres, in a very small and very quiet hamlet of just 4 families. We have Lucas, a friendly border collie, and Loupie, the manic cat. St Pardoux is 8km away from the historical town of Parthenay. Poitiers is just over an hour's drive away, with Tours, La Rochelle and Nantes being about 90 minutes away . May we remind potential helpers that it really is a very quiet area where we live.

Help is needed in our garden. Getting it back into shape for the summer. Little or no digging will be required, but there will be some lifting and shifting. We are not looking for totally inexperienced helpers, so the more experience you have, the better, th... more inside

We are about 30 minutes from Poitiers, futuroscope,Saint Maixent and Melle there are plenty of monuments, churches etc within a short drive.

Small farm with sheep, geese, chickens, ducks and rabbits. We try to be as sustainable and organic as possible. We have 2 lakes and find our property to be a haven of tranquility yet 2 minutes to a town and 1 hour to the coast. Perfect! And we have a pool and jaccuzzi for chill out times. We always need help-, setting up animal shelters and fencing, building and renovating and creating our lovely eco gite business. Experience building is very welcome but energy and enthusiasm is equally welcome! accomodation will be in a caravan or in the house if preferred.
We are a couple with an 18 year old girl. I am an estate agent and Dave does renovation work. WE love the outdoor life, swimming and doing fires and barbecues. We love going kayaking and cycling. We are new to helpx but have had lovely experiences with "Wwoofers" in Ireland and France. We love to meet new people and share experiences and cultures and share our lives and this special place.
