Hi ! We urgently need a volunteer between Jeuly 1 and July 17 to help with gardening and construction work as we are preparing to host summer camps and the bad weather means we have a whole backlog of work. Full accomodation provided, good food, nice work in a beautiful environment with hosts speaking french, spanish and english.


This is a beautiful 24 ha property: 5,5 ha of lovely oak forest and 18,5 of undulating pastures with many trees and a small river at the lower end. We raise lusitanian horses and develop an eco-holiday resort with children camps, which means a lot of work for renovation, organic gardening, etc. etc.

The location: 3km away from the cutest village on earth, Lagraulet du Gers, with its medieval tower and ditch.

The farm: The land was cultivated under intensive farming and the soil is quite degraded, so in order to regenerate it we have converted it to organic pastures where we raise horses (2 foals this year !). Last year we cultivated organic hem... more inside

Young household looking for help and good company. I am a qualified carpenter and general builder who works full time. Therefore, I need help renovating my house which I am living in. My brother Stephen and his arch nemesis James have come to help finish but there is too much to do. We are simply looking for help around the house and a willingness to get involved. A couple hours of help a day would be plenty. You are welcome to stay for a few days or several weeks.

There is a small field at the bottom of the garden where we are keeping two sheep and are getting some chickens too (with a possible duck). There is also currently a dog with a Yorkshire accent. As well as my small livestock, I like to place an emphasis on organic food generally.

I can offer experience in building with a relaxed lifestyle in the heart of the French Pyrenees. The house is on the outskirts of the main town of the area with amenities down the road. There is accommodation in the house but you will be l... more inside

From November to February we would like help with our 3 horses, 1 mule and 2 donkeys. All of them have come to us as ´rescue´s ¨from Spain and our regular helper is away for three months travelling in South America. I need a bit of a hand with mucking out, exercising in our round pen or in hand depending on the weather and just general love and feeding. We also have 12 dogs who love an extra walk round the field. We can offer your own house, attached to ours, log fire and resident cat who also will love to be fussed.

We are a couple (Christine 29 and Adrien, 40)with a baby boy.Our farm is located in a beautiful place into the mountains where nature is wild and preserved. We have 30 goats, we grow berries and medicinal herbs. Christine also gathers wild herbs and flowers in order to do healing and eating preparations. We also have 10 donkeys that we need to educate. We are only beginning the farm so we also do bulding jobs (sheds, henhouse...)and cut trees. We need help to look after Basile (the baby boy)and for all the jobs on the farm. Helpers' accomodation and work schedule will depend on the time of the year, meals will be prepared and taken together.There is an internet connection on the farm.

We were a group of 5 persons living in yurts in the wet French Pyrenees, the group is now reduced to a couple with 5 children, but our goal is still to have more people living together. We have plenty of rocks and little earth, but our garden already feeds us in the summer. Our 2 donkeys are also willing to help us, but we didn't have enough time to work with them. The yurts are old, and will not last another winter. We already built a strawbale cabin and a larger wooden/straw house - both should be finished this summer (clay coating), and a yurt's stilts are going to be used for another strawbale cabin. So, building is the main activity for now, wood cutting is very needed as well, musicians are very welcome, humor is a must.
We will have either a yurt or a caravan for lodging, depending of how fast we can finish the second house. Vegetarian meals, our own bread at breakfast. We are glad to see people bringing their own inspiration, we like learning from others. We are often busy... more inside

BECAUSE OF CHANGES WE ARE MAKING; WE ARE SORRY TO SAY WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE WORK/ACCOMMODATION IN THIS SPRING/SUMMER AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO SO FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR (2013).

We are a family with a son, living in a beautiful old 8-hectare farm in the foothills of the central French Pyrenees. We all speak English and French, and some Spanish.

The owners (who are abroad for an extended period) converted the farm to B&B and Group accommodation and we are running and developing the place.

We are particularly looking for people who can help us continue to develop our organic vegetable garden - but also for people who can help us with lots of other tasks round the place (steps, paths, trenches, managing the woodland, fences etc). NOW LOOKING FOR HELP FROM LATE APRIL!!

For about 5 hours of work per day (time off at weekends) we will give you comfortable accommodation, all your meals, use of internet, plenty of French or English practice, and general use of all the facili... more inside

We are an English family of three with a toddler 'Dexter' (born 20/12/2010). We moved to France from Bristol in September 2007. We also have an 18 month old dog - Jazz (boxer-cross) who is full of energy.

Paul is a yoga teacher and teaches in french and English - we have our own yoga studio here and we run Iyengar yoga retreats every year. I am an English teacher. I teach the French army and run English intensives for french children during the holidays. So extra work can be exchanged for either yoga lessons or English lessons - if wanted.

We really enjoy sharing our place with people and want to help make our garden and the surrounding areas feel more established, managed and beautiful.

We have just bought a piece of beautiful woodland and so need help clearing and managing it - to make paths for walks and a tasteful parking area.

We would greatly apppreciate any help (even if just for a few days) to help move on our woodland project. We enjoy meeting new pe... more inside

Have recently bought a beautiful old barn and are restoring it now and need someone with hands on gardening experience to help maintain and rebuild our garden in exchange for your own comfortable gite and food included.Experience in hard landscaping would be an advantage and person must be clean, presentable, honest and hardworking. This could be a longer term project depending on the right person.
