We live in a beautiful part of France, and we are looking for flexible independent helpers, to help us.
We are looking for help at the moment to restore a barn, we would like to joint and render à stone wall with lime rendering. The garden also needs some work, weeding, trimming, cutting, etc. as well as some painting/restoration work on the buildings and garden furniture .
Building or gardening experience is valued, but common sense and good attitude are always a plus. Some of the work can be physically demanding, so be ready to sweat!

In exchange for 4_5 hours a day, we offer accommodation and meals with us, and hopefully some nice evenings learning new stuff, and having a laugh.
St Jean de Paracol is a very small village, with a good atmosphere and with plenty of great places around to visit, particularly for those who enjoy walking.

A great opportunity for experienced people who would like the use of land for sustainable, ecological agriculture. We are looking to hand over responsibility of the land for 2-5 years while we renovate the farmhouse.

We have 5 hectares of farmland, 40mins from the Spanish border, 20mins from Bayonne and Biarritz surf beaches. the land currently is covered in new woodland with some old trees, bamboo, tonnes of brambles and ancient vines (not currently in a state for grape production).

The house is uninhabitable, so accommodation will either be in a caravan or a tent.

This is a different situation to normal helpex arrangements as you will be independent, providing your own food and other living arrangements. Because we are renovating, the living conditions on site are pretty basic, although there is electricity, water and a hot shower under a walnut tree. There is the potential for internet (it's not currently activated) and are just finishing the temporary kitchen with mud &... more inside

Annie and I are renovating our house and log chalet, ready for french students studying english. A lot of work has been done but still a long way to go! At the moment we are about to put back together an acquired conservatory.We are looking for help with general building work, nothing specialised, but another strong pair of hands about the place. We are trying to do up our house for free as a challenge to our selves by recycling, reusing, readapting what we have or can swap, barter or source locally.A lot of our food is grown locally, or at this time of year there is an abundant supply of free food in the fields and hedgerows, so lots of home cooking. Don't eat a lot of meat, some fish, but healthy! Accommodation for our helpx will be in the main house or the log chalet. Whoever is brave enough to come to us will be warmly welcomed as part of the family. All food drinks etc., Included, transport when we go on shopping trips etc., evenings out sometimes, or evenings in with books, ga... more inside

Domaine with 4 hectares of land.I go to a lot of dog shows so I go missing for 2-4 days at the most one week. 2 retired racehorses. Private chapel on the ground. Old farm dated 1731. 6 Border Terrier dogs. 1 large Italian rescue dog. Walled garden. Walled land. Needs some field attention. Garden could do with some imagination. 2 plantane/sycamore trees that persistently drop leaves and although the branches have been cut twice, they grow back. Property is renovated but as my energy cut out I might have wall papered only 3/4 of a room. But it is not too noticeable. There is a super 48m garden kitchen that I created out of 3 vide caves but have yet to find anyone to change the already purchased double glazed windows. Or tunnel through the wall to mount the chimney for the Italian forno wood burner. The place is now lacking some energy as I reconstructed from roof down. I even put electricity in the chapel. I converted the huge tractor shed into an indoor riding school which the horses... more inside

We have just moved to our new house which will be re-opening as a campsite in spring 2018.
We have a huge task in hand, so are looking for help with renovations to get us ready in time....
Jobs are mostly likely to be light duties like grounds clearance, fencing, painting, decorating etc etc.
we do need an electrician (who is familiar with french system.....i know, big ask!)
and, anyone who may be able to help with re-roofing, tiling and rendering, plumbing/bathroom fitting.....the list goes on!!!!.
We have a clean comfortable home to share and good food.
You would have a bedroom to yourself, but for now, we would all be sharing a bathroom.
You are more than welcome to camp if you prefer.
Three good meals a day, and although we are not vegetarians ourselves, we can cater for a vegetarian diet.
We are situated in the midst of the forest about 15 mins from saumur.
there is plenty of things to do and explore around the area, such as multiple chateaus of the loire valley, mush... more inside

Small farm with sheep, geese, chickens, ducks and rabbits. We try to be as sustainable and organic as possible. We have 2 lakes and find our property to be a haven of tranquility yet 2 minutes to a town and 1 hour to the coast. Perfect! And we have a pool and jaccuzzi for chill out times. We always need help-, setting up animal shelters and fencing, building and renovating and creating our lovely eco gite business. Experience building is very welcome but energy and enthusiasm is equally welcome! accomodation will be in a caravan or in the house if preferred.
We are a couple with an 18 year old girl. I am an estate agent and Dave does renovation work. WE love the outdoor life, swimming and doing fires and barbecues. We love going kayaking and cycling. We are new to helpx but have had lovely experiences with "Wwoofers" in Ireland and France. We love to meet new people and share experiences and cultures and share our lives and this special place.

I'm a cat's Lady already young (57) and I need help for take care of my cats. I wish also to make a permanent garden and a food forest. My farm is in a beautiful area name's Lauragais close to Toulouse. I propose also to help me with building tiny houses in cob. I like to cook for everybody and have good time around a glass of wine.

Je suis une amoureuse des chats. J'ai 57 ans (encore toute jeune, quoi !) et j'ai besoin d'aide pour prendre soin d'eux. Ma ferme est belle et se situe dans le magnifique paysage du Lauragais (Toscane française, pays de Cocagne) proche de Toulouse. Je voudrais créer aussi un potager bio et une forêt alimentaire. Pour ceux que ça intérésse je propose aussi la construction de maisons en terra crue de maisonettes pour les animaux. J'aime bien cuisiner pour chacun et pour tous et passer du bon temps autour d'un verre de vin !

UPDATE 06/2017 : We are in the middle of the hay-making season so we search for people willing to give a hand !

We run a little farm in the centre of France, in the department "Indre", not far from the little town of Chatillon sur Indre.

Francois works with horses and I create websites and give lessons on computer tools. We both work a lot and would like some help with garden, some painting and general house work ( cooking, cleaning, ...). This is the main core. We also need various help following the season. Some fencing, wood cutting, and help with the hay-making in summer ( we still make small rectangular bales: very traditional and social. This is a one-of-a-kind experience. Our children brought friends some times and they all loved it !)
If you have special skills we'll find a way to use them.

Even if we have horses, they are mainly customer horses, and for reasons you can understand, can't be ride by anybody.

Even if we are never out of work we are not "jailer... more inside

English:
Hello :-) we are kata & robin and we would like to invite you to our organic farm in the mountain (1200m), at 1h30 from Nice.
We have an anglo nubian goat breed and transform milk into cheese, we produce vegetables and we have chicken and their eggs. We are quite isolated in the mountain, surrounded by nature and calm and we would like to share our farmlife with nice people :-)

we basically need help in the vegetable fields (weeding, harvesting, preparing for the market etc) as we only work by hand, without mechanical engins :-)

To work with our goats, we only accept Helpers who already have good skills in milking and keeping goats, it takes to much time and energy for us to teach this in two weeks... thank you for understanding :-)

you would stay in a caravan or in a yourte or even under a tent if you like to :-)

We speak french and english. For more information contact us :-)

We need an experienced handyman/couple/friends for about a month. Some experience in one or more of the following would be lovely: carpentry/building/renovation, gardening, painting walls, installing insulation, plumbing, electrics, chain saw, mechanical, electrical, cooking, cleaning, etc... I would say that a more mature couple, at least mid-late twenties + with a reasonable amount of varied life experience would suit us best. Good standard of English or French would be appreciated.

We have bikes for riding in the beautiful countryside all around and our little farm of 23ha has forests, fields, orchards and views of the pyrenees.

The train from our village station goes to all points in the Pyrenees and Toulouse is 40 minutes away by train. You can also take the train to the border of Spain in the Pyrenees and it is a spectacular ride! There are trains and buses all over the pyrenees to great walking trails, cycling, swimming and fishing spots too.


Thank you!
