We have a retreat centre which is used for yoga courses, self-development workshops, shamanic trainings etc.
We are currently inviting helpers for this April to assist on two workshops: 'Drum Birthing' and 'Welcoming our Daughters on the threshold of womanhood' (female only for the latter workshop). Tasks would include getting meals out, washing up, cleaning, food preparation, tidying up the grounds. You would work alongside the two of us to create a beautiful experience for people attending the course.

At other times of the year we need help keeping it nice for visitors: weeding the flower beds, straightening the sunbeds, hanging out washing, but someone flexible that could also turn their hand to painting furniture, or indeed help move it, popping into town to pick up lunch or some lightbulbs, or chat to a bored 10 yr old girl.

I am a former communications manager for the Green Party, a writer and shamanic practitioner in training. My husband is workshop facilitator, tea... more inside

Hi - we're Martin and Jane, and we own a group of old farm cottages just outside a lovely village in South West France. Three of the cottages are rented out as gites and we live in the main farmhouse with our 15 year old daughter Amelie, our beautiful golden retrievers Sophie and Fleur, cats Minou and Thao and 14 chickens....

We've been renovating, updating and maintaining the gites and grounds since we moved here nearly 6 years ago, and we'd love some enthusiastic help before the summer season, mostly in the garden as well as some general decorating.

In return we can offer you a beautiful self contained and fully equipped cottage (L'Ecurie - you can see lots of photos on our website) which sleeps 2 (a double bed). We provide breakfast, light lunch and evening meals (lots of good home cooking), a very flexible work schedule, time to yourself and a relaxed, caring and fun family atmosphere (English speaking - although Amélie speaks fluent French and we get by....). We're al... more inside

You should have a good sense of humour, common sense, independence, initiative and enthusiasm and want to share time with us.

I've just moved into a roomy period townhouse (175 sq.m) in a picturesque small town about 70 kms from Bordeaux. The house itself was renovated 2 years ago to a good standard and the garden has been landscaped (approx 630 sq.m). I would like some help, say, 3 hours a day (flexible) one week or two in May with the garden and a painting job in one of the bedrooms + wall-papering a couple of walls. Also minor carpentry jobs around the house. You would have plenty of time off to explore the region. I can offer a double bedroom, three meals a day and plenty of time off. The town has cafes, shops, supermarket and other facilities, but I haven't yet checked bus services. If you have your own transport would be good but not essential. The area is good for cycling. I'm English and speak good French. I think you'll enjoy being here. Sorry, for the moment I don't have photos. I hope that won't put you off.

We, Pete and Brigitte, moved into our house, in very peaceful South West French countryside, August 2016. The house was finished but the garden was a blank canvas. We are operating as a BnB and have had several guests already. We have 2 horses and sometimes up to 2 liveries. We have 2 very friendly dogs.
What we need : Somebody/ies that will join in. There is weeding and mowing that needs to be done. Stone wall building and wooden raised beds to be made and planted.
Our horses are competition horses, we need somebody that is very competent when handling and riding the horses. We also need somebody that is willing to poo pick, jump on the muckheap and sweep. No Novices.
Some building maintenance help needed – gutters need their joints gluing and the wooden shutters need rubbing down and repainting.
We will definitely not ask anybody to do anything that we would not do ourselves.
The accommodation : A large room with double bed, ensuite bath room with large show... more inside

We need help during the spring and summer with garden work and a bit of renovating. We'd like you to stay with us for 1 or 2 weeks and we'll provide meals in return for 4 or 5 hours work a day.

We'll need help with getting wood cut for the winter months, walking the dog, some gardening and grass cutting (don't worry, it's not a jungle!), maybe some cooking but helping Phil with some work on the renovations would be wonderful. We have to face the house with stone and may need some help with mixing the lime/sand mortar and carrying stuff.

We also grow veggies and hope to plant flowers and hedging. We have hens, a lovely lurcher and an old cat. Accommodation will be in a comfortable small caravan on site but meals, hot showers etc will all be taken in the house. We are quite adaptable so can caters for vegetarians and you won't be totally cut off from the world as we have bikes, telephone and wifi. The property is quite rural in a gorgeous part of France with lots of walks and l... more inside

Hello,

# Right now we need someone with experience in plumbing immediately to come and help me make the final connections for our bathroom suite. Please get in touch if you can help with this, thanks. Pocket money / renumeration guaranteed !

Our family are searching for help with roofing, electrics, plumbing and general building work. We have just bought our first house and we are about to begin the rénovations.

My wife is a good cook so you will be well looked after and of course some alcohol along the way always helps :)

We have both been helpers before so we fully understand the importance of mutual respect between host and helper.

We search for helpers who are willing to do around 6 hours a day. Having said that If you have skills and are willing to do a normal working day alongside me then we can discuss the possibility of a little renumeration. I'm a stonemason ( maçon ) by trade but I also do general building ( multi-services ).

I work very hard and to a ... more inside

Hi - we are about to move into our new home and need help with painting and gardening. The whole house will need painting after being re built in the inside and the garden has vines that need tending. Although we are only in our 50's I have a condition that stops me from doing too much and so hence the need for help. It would only be for a couple of weeks, working 5 hrs per day and you would get bed and board and, if you'd like, help with your English as I am a qualified TEFL teacher. We are looking for someone from mid April. The house has fantastic views and is 5 mins away from one of the prettiest villages in France.
