Hello, we are a franco-swiss couple, we live in the North-West of the region called Limousin ( between Poitiers and Limoges) in a water mill which we are renovating for 7 years now.
We live in a rural area in the countryside at 6 km from the nearest town, the nearest train station is 22km away and the nearest airport is in Limoges ( about 64 km away). Paris is less than 3hours away. There are some lovely places to visit in the region, especially local villages and towns such as Limoges.

Our global aim: go towards more autonomy ( green energies, healthy eating, health by natural methods) and authenticity. We are installing a naturopathy practice, 2 guest houses, a SPA, production of environmentally friendly energy ( solar and hydraulic), an orchard with ancient and local varieties of fruits, 1 permaculture garden ( organic of course) and small animal parks. We are still in the process of working and building, however the naturopathy practice, the orchard and the first garden are ... more inside

We have been living in the Languedoc, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, for nearly five years now. With the help of family and volunteers, we've been working to transform the property into an organic smallholding with small-scale holiday accommodation, and to move towards a sustainable way of living.

With two-and-a-half hectares of woodland, meadow, orchards and vegetable garden, as well as sheep, chickens, cats and guinea-pigs, there is always plenty to do.

We welcome volunteers from March until October, staying for 2 - 3 weeks. In the summer season we have a small number of paying guests, and really appreciate volunteer help to look after them, and to look after the grounds, the animals and the garden. Out of high season, there is project work to do - small-scale construction, decorating, gardening, woodland management and maintenance.

We welcome people with practical skills and ideas to undertake new projects, but out of season, enthusiasm and commitment are mo... more inside

Bonjour amis woofers.
Nous vivons dans un joli petit coin du parc naturel régional des monts d'Ardèche à une vingtaine de kilomètres de Privas, au calme. Nous avons eu un coup de cœur, il y a maintenant 2 ans, pour ce lieu paisible, en pleine nature, à la vue dégagée. Nous avons fait le choix de quitter nos emplois, de déménager et de nous lancer dans une aventure difficile mais exaltante et correspondant à notre envie de vivre autrement.
Je suis donc devenu éleveur de brebis avec un troupeau d'une centaine de bêtes et j'exploite 50 hectares de terres dont 6 hectares de châtaigneraies en conversion bio.
Le temps fort de la vie chez nous, c’est le ramassage des châtaignes, qui se fait au mois d’octobre et dure environ trois semaines. Il se fait à la main, pour respecter les fruits et proposer un produit de qualité. C'est une tâche physique et fatigante mais c’est aussi une occasion de partager et d’échanger entre les ramasseurs. Cela permet également de vivre un moment privilég... more inside

Due to a great response we wont need any more helpers till 2018 .Wanted Entheusiastic People To Help Create A Craft Brewery!
Also to help us transform our village house in the medieval village of Aurignac.

We are Jonathan and Miriam, a well travelled, adventurous couple, who have decided to put down our roots for the foreseeable future.

We have lived in our home for three years, with our two lovely daughters, two friendly rescue dogs and two very cuddly cats.Both the girls have now fled the nest so it's time to get stuck into our project!

We plan to turn our home into gallery space, workshop areas and accommodation for artists.
The Craft Brewery will be created in an outbuilding.
We also plan to make works of art in the garden eg. sculpture, mosaics, water features.....and would value any creative landscaping advice

There are many areas in the house that we wish to uncover/retain/restore using recycled materials and ecological products where it's possible.

Hi Folks,
We are two guys ; William (the French) and khom (the Thaï).
It would be a pleasure for us to host travellers in our flat.
You could help us for the daily life like clean the flat, DIY tasks (2/3 hours max per day).
We could show you Paris (30mn by suburb train) and share with you the French and Thaï culture.
We like to go to theater and the cultural scene in Paris.
For us it's more for a cultural exchange.
See you in Paris...
