We can supply approximate cycling times to local villages & towns on request.

We're an active couple who would like some immediate and ongoing help with various projects around our house and land in SW France: ideally a couple, but will consider 1 or 2 people - offering you your own fairy-tale self-contained cottage or even a Pigeonnier - hours and other details by arrangement.

We are three families (6 adults and 5 children) and we decided to buy together a land in Southern Gironde, in a small ans beautiful village called Uzeste.
Our group is multi social and multi cultural.

Our aim is to renovate and build in an ecological and participatory way, three housing and a "commun house" (Which will be dedicated to economic, ecological, cultural and social activities), and to allow the installation of a small permaculture farm.

We wish that our place could welcome people from everywhere.

The project of the cooperative of inhabitants of Uzeste was born in 2013. And we made our dream come true.

We are convinced that the dynamics developed within the grouped habitats bring important cultural changes and contribute to a global and local "ecological and social transition ".

Our place consists of a house, a barn and an agricultural building, surrounded by 3 hectares of land. It is located in the commune of Uzeste (in the South Gironde).

Germaine & Bernard eat what they produce as far as it is possible.
They have a small vineyard, garden and orchard.
Bernard tend a few beehives and is willing to share his passion.
This is your opportunity to experience French rural life.
They ask to the helpers to do various odd jobs at the property,
be communicative and not engrossed in " screen-based activities ",
therefore, leaving their " virtual world " behind.
They must be interested in their tasks, the people and things that surround them.
Here, what is interesting is our nearly self-suffisent lifestyle.
Unfortunately, they cannot cater for vegetarians.
The hosts speak French and they get by in English.
If you meet to these conditions, you will be very welcome.
Accomodation at the family house, includes access to these facilities : WIFI internet, TV, DVDs ...
Leisure Pursuits available in the area are : canoeing ; rambling ; visits within the region... such as prehistoric caves, typical rural villages ... more inside

Hi!
We are located at the foothills of the Pyrenees, in the beautiful valley of the Baretous. An hour from the Spanish border and less than 2 hours from Bayonne and the Atlantic ocean.
We are always looking for new helpers who want to share our life style, are not afraid to put some dirt on their hands and want to eat organic fresh food.
After 10 years of Organic farming in Canada (as the 32 first review shows), we moved back to France and decided to start a new adventure there. According to the season we seed, plant, pick and pack and we go to the farmer market, and the basic chore of every farmer, some weeding :P
We like to work in the morning, 4 to 6 hours per day.
After that, the afternoon is for you, hiking, biking, visiting the area, going to the beach ...
We are looking to develop some activities around horses, Natural Horsemanship, so a few of them should arrived very soon.
We share common chores (cooking, washing, sweeping,...) and we like to have fun. So if you ... more inside

A double bedroom with en-suite facilities is available. We have wifi, english TV and bicycles are available if required.

We are English and a few years ago had the mad idea of renovating the abandoned buildings of an old farm near Bergerac in South West France. Since then we've been bringing the site back to life in an eco friendly way and have made lots of new friends, young and old.

We've had interesting and varied lives, but here it helped that I spoke decent French and that Martin was a very practical and capable builder. Although we're still active every day doing some job or other, most of the building work is behind us, apart from hoping to put up a steel and reclaimed timber outbuilding some time this year, finishing a bit of interior work, completing the wooden cladding and landscaping of one of the barns,and making a new path. Another project is to make chair covers and curtains.

We run a couple of popular holiday properties on the site. The garden and grounds claim our attention too.

As there is always a variety of things to do we usually ask helpers where they would like to co... more inside

Hi,


We have a house in a lovely little hamlet, a beautiful place which is extremely rural- 5 km from the nearest village - so you have to love nature and peace and quiet to want to come and stay here. We have deer in the garden every day and non-stop song from the birds. This area of France is heavily forested and the nearby beaches are beautiful and deserted for most of the year.

We are currently looking for help through the month of June. We are looking for someone who would like to spend 2 - 4 weeks. A week is not really long enough to get to know the place.

We are happy to welcome a single helper, a couple of friends or a couple travelling together. The property is quiet and far from neighbours so if you come alone you would need to very much enjoy your own company as it is very rural and there are not a lot of people around.

We would ask you to help with odd -jobs around the house but most of the work would be garden maintenance.

Please note that some of... more inside

No smokers, no wild animals or alcoholics desired. I drink wine, or beer, no problem if you do too!

I am a 67 year old technician. I speak English, German, French and some Spanish.

Simple old French house needing simple renovation work, located in a very small village. It is merely a secondary residence for me, as I live elsewhere. Roof work (only light stuff), Electrical work, garden work (very small), woodwork, insulation, required. General old joint stuff! Nothing fancy! This is a place only for those who are prepared to rough it a bit.

Normally, I do the technical work, so I am looking for someone to basically prepared to do boring stuff, because it is half the battle when I can work with disturbances. I expect approximately 6 hours light work.

However, I can see 2 scenarios:

Option 1. Someone who can cook (I am vegetarian only, you eat what you want), do washing up, drying dishes, cleaning up, for just the two of us and the occasional stray cat(s). If you open ... more inside
