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 and are never stabled. We believe in keeping our horse as natural as possible W e like to make long walks with our dogs . I use Parelli natural horsemanship to have a good relationship with the horses.

There is a mountainbiketrail that runs next to our farm. We have bikes that can be used. We live in a small hamlet and the nearest village Brillac is 5 min away by car. The nearest town is Confolens which is 15 min by car. It has supermarkets, a saturday market and a few restaurants.
We are looking for help with the gardening and general maintenance round the farm.

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 an... more inside

I would be happy to host a helper from 20 august to the end of august.
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. There is also some creation to do, like make a separation in hazelnut branches and other things like that. I have also painting to do ( windows, garden staffs). It will be also time to make jam from blackberries, and to collect fruits in gardens.
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.
The two last Summers I did a walking tour in the Picos de Europa in spain and also in Tenerife and in La Palma de Canarien Isles. I would be... more inside

**** URGENT - NEED HELPX *****


Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 24, 22, 20, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".You could go to the Puy du Fou, who is 15 minutes from les Herbiers.

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique

Here we are again ! After having had a great experience in 2016 with a Swedish helper, we would love to host helpers in July and August 2017 again ! Après une expérience plus qu'heureuse avec une helper suédoise en 2016, nous pourrons accueillir un helper à nouveau pour nous aider avec la saison touristique de 2017 ! (Voir explications en français en bas).

We are a a family of Dutch people who have lived in France since 1992 and live in an old property in the Poitou-Charentes. Jan (1947), Beer (1962), Charlotte (1995) and Norah (2004). Both Jan and Beer have work that needs preparation in our office at home and makes us travel around France by times, and besides that we are managing three self catering accommodations and a small campground. So we alter the office work with down to earth work on the premises and on the buildings, that we are restoring for ever!
We are a bunch of laughing people, love to debate on a whole range of issues, accustomed to receiving people (as touri... more inside

We are a busy family always in need of help around the house, garden and with our menagerie of animals (horses, dogs, cat)

We have been renovating our house and there is a lot of work still to be done and lots of skills to be learned. A little DIY experience would be useful but not needed as long as you have the motivation and confidence to have a go.

We like our helpers to become part of the family and help out at mealtimes and with general household duties when needed. I do not object to anyone using my kitchen and doing some baking if you feel like it.

We have a newly decorated bedroom in the house for our helpers with a double bed.

Helpers who can ride (English style) are allowed to use our horses and enjoy the local forest and fields on our doorstep. You must be able to groom, tack up, ride safely (walk, trot, and canter) and clean the tack afterwards.

In the summer you can enjoy the pool or visit the local bathing lakes and rivers. We also have a hot tub... more inside
