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

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 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 plenty of grunting, lifting and shifting. We are not looking for inexperienced helpers. The more experience you have, the better, and the more likel... more inside

English couple retired to France in 2003 living in hamlet 1km from village with café/bar and 13 kms from medieval town of Parthenay, Deux Sèvres. 1 adorable dog and 3 treasured cats rule the house so helper must be an animal-lover.

We would appreciate help in the garden with weeding, watering, chopping branches, clearing overgrown area, and indoors with painting etc.

Helpers have their own room with double bed and adjacent shower room. Wifi available. A communal evening meal with wine is included or you can cook separately if you prefer. Breakfast and lunch provided by hosts on a help yourself basis. In return, we ask for 20 - 25 hours' help each week, flexible on how these hours are spread out.

Walking and cycling (bike provided)in the local Gatine countryside is one of the pleasures of the local area. We are less than an hour from the university city of Poitiers, capital of Poitou-Charentes, and 1.5 hours from the coast at La Rochelle.

Bonjour
Nous sommes Corinne et François, 61 et 70 ans. Nous habitons dans la belle campagne bocagère de l'Argentonnais entre Angers, Nantes et Poitiers., dans l'ouest de la France.
Depuis 2010 nous rénovons notre grande et très ancienne maison de manière écologique avec des matériaux de provenance proche.
Nous recevons des groupes pour les vacances, et organisons des stages de formation (toujours en lien avec la nature et la créativité en toute simplicité, consulter notre site pour plus de détails : www.latourdauzay.fr).
Nous demandons aux helpers de nous aider pour la rénovation : poncer les poutres ou les tomettes, peindre, ou pour le jardin : planter des arbres, cultiver le potager, ou pour couper du bois.
Nous avons des poules, des oies et deux brebis et un bélier dont il faut s'occuper aussi.
Nous prêtons des bicyclettes pour les promenades environnantes, il y a aussi de nombreux chemins pour marcher.
Nous sommes contents de rencontrer des jeunes helpers désireux de c... more inside

Hello HelpXers, welcome to our home in Poitou Charente, W.France. We are located just outside a small village with a good community. We are in a beautiful rural area. The river runs through our grounds so it's good here for fishing too.

We have to be away from 21 April till mid May so hope to find (ideally) a couple, or two friends, to look after our house and animals (dog and cat) when we are away. We have a golden retriever and one very timid cats. Help in the garden would also be very welcome.

You will need to be self-catering but we can offer a self-contained 2 bedroom apartment in return for help with house and garden if anyone wants to come longer-term. We are both English and we look forward to hearing from you.
