Hello Helpers,

We are many families and single people living together, from 1month old to 80 years old, in the small village of Sus (south-west of France), near the medieval town of Navarrenx which is on the Saint James way.
We have been living there for the last 30 years, having people joining us all along. Sharing everything in common, our home is open to anyone.
We all live in a big castle ; families have their own apartment, single men live together, so do single women in their appartment. You will stay according to your own situation, either as a family or as an individual. We home-school our children (around 30).

We are doing many different activities you will be able to take part of depending on the needs.
Here is the list of the main things we do : organic bakery, pastry, organic gardening with donkeys or tractor, including harvesting, woodwork, going to several local markets, etc. We also take good care of our chickens, sheep, goats and cows, not counting the work... more inside

We are an elder couple living in France since 2000. We stayed 13 years in Africa, Mali. My husband is German, myself, Inge, I am French-German.
It is now 2 years, we bought a small farm in the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord-Limousin. Last year we moved. The property is situated at the border of a small hamlet, the little road ends and forests start. We are no farmers. My husband is musician and architect, I am a retired technical adviser in Education. Nevertheless we try to transform a garden from jungle to a place where bio vegetables grow, we have 3 chickens (to eat their eggs) and about 15 sheep (to use their wool). Two big dogs Maxie and Snow (Pyrenees mountain dogs) need a walk of half an hour every morning. You have to be strong, sometimes, to hold them. The advantage of walking with the dogs is, that you go through wonderful local countryside and tranquil forest.

We renovate our little new home. There is need to help. My husband works together with artisans but he does ... more inside

** Update.....we have Availability from the 28th of August **

We are a Dutch young couple living in Condom in (sunny) Gascony in the South West of France.
We have 2 young children, one boy who is 7 years old and one little girl of 5, we also have always between 6-8 dogs depending on how many rescue dogs we have at that time.
We work together with an association who rescue dogs and when there is a dog in need they call us & we try to help and find them good homes in cooperation with several organisations in Europe, so the dogs are an important factor in our lives.

We are looking for an open minded, caring, energetic, independent handy couple (man/woman) to help us run our daily hectic household which means, cooking, cleaning, walking the dogs, babysitting/entertaining the kids, washing and other diy maintenance jobs. A drivers license, valid in France, is essential & gives you some freedom as we live quite remote.
Due to several reasons we cannot accept any people who trav... more inside

Relaxed lifestyle with opotunities for helpers to leave their mark and hopefully enjoy the local culture and sites.
Activities mostly concern the garden and housework. There no job here, it is more an intigration into daily life helping me whilst staying in a small village.
After a long illness I need someone to help with the garden and general housework.
It is a great pleasure meeting people from different countries and cultures and showing them this small corner of the world.
If you have a favourite recipe it will be good to learn how to cook it.
There are plenty of local music event which I like to attend and you will be welcome to come along. If you are a musician you may have the oppotunity to play.
I prefer someone for a minimum of 2 weeks, with a month being a good average stay.
I am looking for open minded travelers (not tourists) who do not have an adgenda whilst with me. I will gladly take you to visit parts of the region as there is no public transport here.

My house is quite big. I've got animals: dogs, chicken, a few goats, horses and cats. There's also a very big vege garden.
I work as a a goat's cheese maker.When I don't work and when I'm not gardenig I dance tango.
Nearby, live one of my daughters, her boyfriend and 3 of my grandchrildren (1, 4 and 12 years old).
Here help is needed with the animals, the general maintenance and the garden: feed the chicken, close the chicken house at night, collect eggs, give hugs to cats and dogs. Help is also needed with my 2 youngest grandchildren here at home or at my daughter's house (see it on the last picture, her host ID is 29552)
Some cleaning is always welcome, as help for cooking and there's always little things to fix all around the farm.
Independent people who don't mind having time on their own, will feel very well here.
I'm often on the road because of my job (delivery cheese...), so you may be alone sometimes, or with my daughter and her family.
It's possible to pick you u... more inside

HARVEST 2017

Unfortunately our accomodation for helpers was in an old caravan that has fallen apart. So we do not have any availability for harvest for this year. We will be looking for volunteers for the spring at the beginning of next year if we can build some new accomodation.

----------

We are an organic and biodynamic vineyard and farm in a beautiful part of south west France.We are open to volunteers looking for a shorter experience of say a week.

The tasks are interesting and I will always try be involved with you to explain, and of course you can ask me lots of questions about wine and organic winegrowing. Some days we will be busy more than normal but you'll be compensated with extra time off when it allows.

When there's no vineyard or winery work, there may be some things we can do in the vegetable garden or maintenance things like painting, or weeding.

We do lunch and dinner together the days we work. We provide you with cereals, coffee/tea, bread and ja... more inside

Hi
We use to travel as often as we can (Morroco, india, Israel, Australia, eastern Europe, New-Zealand…) and we found a great way to go on travelling while we’re in france : hosting volunteers !
We are a friendly french family : Christophe : healer (osteopath) and meditation and Qi-Qong instructor, Maud : writer and actor's director, with 3 easy going children : Lin 12 years old and Enki 4 years, Zacharie 1 year and a half.
Lin is a great French teacher, he is very talkative! And you could teach him some English too.
We share our time between 2 places :
- Our house which is situated in a beautiful area with fields and forests, close to a small typical village, not very far from Paris ( 2 hours by train). Here we are restoring our house which is really in the nature .
-And our family house on the Island "île d'yeu" which is a small wild and amazing Island in Vendée (South brittany) . Here our kids spend most time on the beach...
We live in an ecological way, we use dry comp... more inside

We are a non profit association growing aromatic herbs which we transform into products that we sell in local shops and markets as well as further afield. Our eventual aim is to create employment for women in our beautiful area where jobs are scarce. Our plants are organic although we don't yet have a certification. We need help weeding, planting and harvesting! For more info about me, Lesley, see host listing 5474, which is for a now finished eco building project and has helper reviews. Accommodation for this project will be in our beautiful new strawbale home!

Nous Jean-Marie et Cécile sommes un couple qui venons de prendre la retraite. Nous habitons à la campagne dans une maison en pierre typique de notre belle région Aveyron/Tarn. Il y a beaucoup de sentiers pour faire de la randonnée mais on peut faire aussi de l'escalade à 1km et du vélo.
La maison est située à coté de la rivière Viaur et en été on peut s'y baigner. Vous pourrez trouver restaurants bars ou magasins à environ 15 kms de chez nous. Le lieu est calme et tranquille.
Les travaux que vous pourrez faire chez nous sont du bricolage de la peinture dans la maison et du jardinage 4 h par jour . Vous pourrez dormir dans une chambre à la maison et manger avec nous légumes frais et bio cultivés dans notre jardin: nous ne sommes pas végétariens.
Nous parlons bien sur le français et un peu l'espagnol. Vous pourrez apprendre le français avec nous mais il serait préférable pour communiquer que vous parliez et compreniez déjà un peu notre langue.
