i live in a beautiful 300year old farmhouse which i am slowly renovating. With lovley big old barns. I need help finishing off bits in the house and for next summer I need help with changing beds and cleaning in the mornings as I run a very busy B&B . I have a caravan that can be used for accommodation which is in my garden . I have 1 big dog 3 cats 6 chickens and my neighbors donkey who lives in my field. My house is in the heart of the countryside and is very peaceful. It would be better if you had a car or some sort of transport as the nearest small village is 15 mins walk and the bigger town is 20 mins with a car and I am not sure how often the bus runs. I love cooking and am vegan but will cook meat for who ever stays if needed. It's a beautiful place to come and stay do a bit of work and then enjoy the area. I have an above ground pool that can be used and a jacuzzi. I am very laid back but just need help for this season as bookings are coming in daily .....:)

We run a holiday village / country club located in the Charente / Dordogne countryside, about one and a half hours from Bordeaux. We are looking for one or more people to help with some general gardening and maintenance over the winter. There may also be other bits and pieces in the bar or the office, depending on how it works out. No particular skills are necessary, but it is essential that you are happy working with others, both as part of a team and keeping our guests happy during their stay.

In return, we can offer you accommodation, meals, a drink allowance, plus use of all of our facilities including, tennis, golf, table tennis, basketball, swimming pool (apart from the winter months!), cycling, boules etc... including a fair amount of free time to make the most of your time here. The local football team is also in need of some talent if you've got any!

We would welcome people on their own, but due to a hectic workload and family life, cannot be on hand for socialising... more inside

Come and work in the South West of France on a Chateau and grounds dating back to the 1700's. We are looking for volunteers to come and work on our property before the beginning of the summer holiday season to carry out refurbishment work.

We are looking for a total of 6 people for a period of 2 weeks commencing on the 20th of May 2017.

No major skills are required. Just elbow grease and good will. Tasks involve mostly helping my father and myself with the building work. We will be doing stone work, wood work, roofing, window fitting, ground work, landscaping and so on. So be ready to get your hands very dirty.

We are asking for 5 hours of work per day and in exchange we will share our vast building knowledge with you and we will provide accommodation in your own room in a cottage on the grounds of the Chateau with free access to Wi-fi, TV, BBQ and the swimming pool.

Hi,
We are a British couple who run a Chambre d’hôte and restaurant in a small village along the Vienne river, on the tourist route. The village has a Bakery, Post Office, Hairdresser and, of course, our bar bistrot. There are walks and cycle trails in the area and you can catch a train from the next village to Poitiers, Bordeaux and Paris, although having your own wheels would obviously give you more flexibility. We are happy to show you around the area when time permits.

We are looking for people, preferable couples or duos, to help us with general maintenance, housework, gardening, room changes, etc. In exchange, we offer an en-suite double or twin room, with use of a communal kitchen. We ask that you work with us on average 5 hours a day for 5 days a week, with flexibility required, and offered according to the season.

This is an opportunity to practice your english, french and other languages with our customers and friends, and to experience a very laid back village... more inside

******** I have space till Dec 9th ********

Hi,
my name is Stephen and I live in a small village in a lovely rural part of France just 30 minutes south of Poitiers.
I am restoring my house which is over 200 years old, the restoration work is being sympathetically done, with that and the garden which needs work there is plenty to do. If you have any skills to help in these areas would be great but if not I'm sure your assistance would be helpful.

I would be pleased to have a French speaker as it would allow me to continue to learn the language, but everyone, no matter your language, is welcome.
I'm a pretty chilled guy and easy to get along with.

Priority work at the moment is my garden including building a stone wall (I've built half of it already)

Your room is the best room in the house (see photo) and apart from the double bed there is a sofa & coffee table.
I was a chef for a while so the food is pretty good, I provide 3 meals a day with a beer or wine with the e... more inside

We are a couple of early escapees from the rat race. We have lived in Turkey, Hong Kong, USA and are originally from the UK. Have just moved into our dream, smack bang in the middle of France. We live on the edge of a small village just 2 km from La Vallee des Singes, in a beautiful Maison de Maitre, with an old house in the grounds which we are planning to turn into a gite. Poitiers is just 30 minutes away with airport and TGV trains.

Enthusiasm is the main ingredient, as we would like your help doing anything from pruning shrubs and trees, to rotovating and laying lawn seed, fencing, rendering/pointing old stone walls, painting, tiling and general DIY. We are not experts, more like beginners and do not expect anyone else to be, we would just like an extra pair of hands to help out. Home cooked meals and a bedroom in our house are provided in return for help. We have bikes you can use and are also happy to provide lifts. We are new to the area ourselves and often take t... more inside
