Host is a Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher who runs mindfulness retreats. Have just moved house so need help in autumn & spring with gardening and landscaping. Also help with website and social media would be appreciated.

Vegetarian organic cooking. You will have your own room in our house. Prefer people with experience.

Beautiful location on edge of medieval village with train station. South facing with view over forest - fantastic walks. We have bikes to borrow. Great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding.

What we offer is space for you to reconnect with yourself and nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.

HELP WITH GARDENING, TREE SURGERY, ANIMALS, COMMUNITY PROJECT, CARPENTRY, PLUMBING

I would like some help with tree surgery,carpentry, plumbing and as always I need help to keep my garden in order.

Also, some help with our community project. The next stages are maintaining flower beds in the village square and work on our nature trail.

I live in a recently constructed small wooden ecological house in the heart of the small friendly village of Cahuzac. The village has two classed historical monuments, the chateau and the church. Cahuzac also has a historical link with the first French governor of Quebec in the fifteenth century.

I am looking for helpers who will be attracted to this lovely little bit of paradise and who wish to contribute not only to my own garden and house but also to the small village community in which I live.

HELP WITH GARDENING
Some of my trees are in need of some surgery if you have the skills to do this.

We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.
However we now have a brand new project in renovating an old bar/restaurant in the village ( Helen already runs the existing one and wants to eventually move into the bigger premises)
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property that is over 9 metres circumference and is in guide books as an 'arbre remarquable'.
The new property in the village is a huge project, with an existing bar, shop and appartment to clean up and redecorate, then there's the ballroom behind where we plan to install new toilets and kitchen area.

We will... more inside

Hi, I live in a beautiful manor house that was built in 1825, the house is situated on the grounds of an old monastery, there are two chapels (13th and 15th century) in the courtyard, the house has its own water source. What is needed is a bit of cheering up (harmonising) The work will be, painting the walls, (see photo) shutters and windows, some indoor painting, gardening, making a vegetable garden, tiding up the carp pond, cutting down bamboo, (Making bamboo art?) and some general maintenance....The aim is to make this fun:) It is a lovely enviroment, ideal for creative people. In the past the house was owned by an artist, and a concert pianist.....Now by me, a rock guitarist...Lol..It is peaceful most of the time.

In the house there are two kitchens, 4 Bathrooms with showers, and 5 WC's so one can have privacy if you wish.....

There a table-tennis table in the orangerie, and a swimming pool for use in the summer…Unless you enjoy a cold dip?

I am often asked to play guit... more inside

Gooood morning everyone :-) !!!


I am Sam and I bought recently a very old stone house on a piece of land in the lost french countryside (nature is amazing around here, you should pay a look ;-)). No big cities, no cars, no polution, only green grass, flowers, small trails, trees, farmers and animals... The house is several centuries old (probably the oldest of the village) with a stony old style wood bread hoven (to be restaured). The place has been inhabited since ... a very long time... and needs a bit of renovation (stone walls restauration, carpentry checking, electricity, plumbing,...) There is also a big field behind the house for growing all kind of plants (we will plant fruit trees this year, start the winter veggies, plant all kind of berries, aromatics, flowers, medicinal plants, etc...), so permaculture gardeners are very welcome !! We do everything organic and nature friendly.

Cooking skills are highly appreciated as well…

EVERYBODY IS WELCOME as long as she/h... more inside

We are a family of four, two children aged 10 years old and 5 years old. We live in a beautiful situation in the Ariege mountains off grid, using solar electricity and spring water. We choose to live without many modern conveniences : no TV, and limited internet access... yes... a life like this is still possible!
We have a compost toilet and wood fired water for shower.

Helpers accommodation is a small separate straw bale hut (see photo below) with a double bed, wood stove, kitchen and running cold water. The toilet and shower are separate and communal. For a little privacy (for us and the helpers!), we can have shared meals every lunch time, and every second evening. We would provide three meals a day in return for 5 hours of work per day, with weekends free. We have 2000 metres of land with vegetable garden, orchard and fruit bushes. We keep chickens duck and rabbits for food and eggs, we also have donkeys for keeping the land cleared and a pet dog and cats.
