We are Wilf and Rosi and we moved here to the south Vienne two years ago. We live in an old farm with our dog and cats, in a small hamlet in some delightful countryside about an hour southwest of Poitiers.

Rosi used to be a primary school teacher in England, while Wilf is a psychology graduate and an ex-driving instructor. Rosi is the one who gets on with the work! She has done plastering, tiling, some electrics and plumbing, and has a fair bit of knowledge about roofing and such like, since being here in France.

The house is now habitable - we have already completed a lot of work, including electrics, new bathroom, roof etc - however we want to expand a bit and need help with a bit more roofing and building work on some of the many outbuildings. Also, last summer our beautiful barn collapsed so we have a lot of clearance work to do - and help would be greatly appreciated in the reclamation of some of the timbers, stone and tiles.

Rosi has managed to clear and sort out muc... more inside

I live in Poitiers,a middle size town located on France's west center side ( 180 kms from the Atlantic Ocean ).Paris is 340 kms from Poitiers and can be easily reached by train ( a 2 hours long trip ) and Bordeaux is 250kms away.
Near my house,you will find a bus stop that can bring you to downtown ( frequent stops ).
Poitiers is a city mixing historical interests and a great diversity of fauna and flora interests as seen in the various museums, parks and zoos around the town.We also located on the famous way of St Jacques of Compostelle.
My personnal interests revolve around nature, one's health, natural medecine, relationships, travelling.My own son lives in Melbourne and I get to visit him as often as possible.
I understand English and Spanish.
For those interested in coming to visit me, I'll ask them to help me with some manual work like painting the bathroom and a bedroom that I want to renovate. This is a small room but I'll need also help to move the furniture out.Som... more inside

**We still have space for the summer season, do get in touch!

We have bed & breakfast with a little organic garden. This is a place of peace, a little bit in the countryside but as there are always people around you'll never feel lonely. Philippe looks after the garden while Jeanne-Marie is mostly running the bed & breakfast - making sure everyone has a good stay. We eat all meals together with all guests and friends/family.

There is always something to do, either in the b&b or in the garden. Normally in the morning you help cleaning the (bath)rooms when our guests have left. You can help in the garden, picking fruits and vegetables and learn how to prepare them for a nice, healthy meal. A good opportunity to experience proper French cuisine. French is mostly spoken but we also speak a bit English, so no worries :)
There is also some building work and some painting to do.

Your working hours are 5 or 6 days a week, 4-6 hours a day (all meals included). But of course we are... more inside

Looking for help with our on-going renovation project near Lac de Lavaud on the Charente-Limousin border in France, 40 minutes from Limoges.

We need someone who can happily spend some time repointing ancient stonework with a lime/sand mix. Scaffold/ladder work will be involved.Phil will also need help installing electricity and water connections. There is also plenty of grass cutting, gardening, log/wood sawing, some dog walking (gorgeous lurcher) and very occasional cooking on the firepit to do..

We have a spare bedroom at our little rental house 3 klms away or a cosy caravan on site...whichever suits you. We live in a fabulous peaceful place near a huge lake with swimming, canoeing, fishing, cycle and walking routes through the lanes close by.

5 hours work a day would be good, in return for meals and accommodation. You must be healthy and active. You will have lots of free time. Being able to drive would be a bonus. We'd like you to come in July, August or September. W... more inside
