I've just moved into a roomy period townhouse (175 sq.m) in a picturesque small town about 70 kms from Bordeaux. The house itself was renovated 2 years ago to a good standard and the garden has been landscaped (approx 630 sq.m). I would like some help, say, 3 hours a day (flexible) one week or two in May with the garden and a painting job in one of the bedrooms + wall-papering a couple of walls. Also minor carpentry jobs around the house. You would have plenty of time off to explore the region. I can offer a double bedroom, three meals a day and plenty of time off. The town has cafes, shops, supermarket and other facilities, but I haven't yet checked bus services. If you have your own transport would be good but not essential. The area is good for cycling. I'm English and speak good French. I think you'll enjoy being here. Sorry, for the moment I don't have photos. I hope that won't put you off.

We, Pete and Brigitte, moved into our house, in very peaceful South West French countryside, August 2016. The house was finished but the garden was a blank canvas. We are operating as a BnB and have had several guests already. We have 2 horses and sometimes up to 2 liveries. We have 2 very friendly dogs.
What we need : Somebody/ies that will join in. There is weeding and mowing that needs to be done. Stone wall building and wooden raised beds to be made and planted.
Our horses are competition horses, we need somebody that is very competent when handling and riding the horses. We also need somebody that is willing to poo pick, jump on the muckheap and sweep. No Novices.
Some building maintenance help needed – gutters need their joints gluing and the wooden shutters need rubbing down and repainting.
We will definitely not ask anybody to do anything that we would not do ourselves.
The accommodation : A large room with double bed, ensuite bath room with large show... more inside

We need help during the spring and summer with garden work and a bit of renovating. We'd like you to stay with us for 1 or 2 weeks and we'll provide meals in return for 4 or 5 hours work a day.

We'll need help with getting wood cut for the winter months, walking the dog, some gardening and grass cutting (don't worry, it's not a jungle!), maybe some cooking but helping Phil with some work on the renovations would be wonderful. We have to face the house with stone and may need some help with mixing the lime/sand mortar and carrying stuff.

We also grow veggies and hope to plant flowers and hedging. We have hens, a lovely lurcher and an old cat. Accommodation will be in a comfortable small caravan on site but meals, hot showers etc will all be taken in the house. We are quite adaptable so can caters for vegetarians and you won't be totally cut off from the world as we have bikes, telephone and wifi. The property is quite rural in a gorgeous part of France with lots of walks and l... more inside

Hello,

# Right now we need someone with experience in plumbing immediately to come and help me make the final connections for our bathroom suite. Please get in touch if you can help with this, thanks. Pocket money / renumeration guaranteed !

Our family are searching for help with roofing, electrics, plumbing and general building work. We have just bought our first house and we are about to begin the rénovations.

My wife is a good cook so you will be well looked after and of course some alcohol along the way always helps :)

We have both been helpers before so we fully understand the importance of mutual respect between host and helper.

We search for helpers who are willing to do around 6 hours a day. Having said that If you have skills and are willing to do a normal working day alongside me then we can discuss the possibility of a little renumeration. I'm a stonemason ( maçon ) by trade but I also do general building ( multi-services ).

I work very hard and to a ... more inside

Hi - we are about to move into our new home and need help with painting and gardening. The whole house will need painting after being re built in the inside and the garden has vines that need tending. Although we are only in our 50's I have a condition that stops me from doing too much and so hence the need for help. It would only be for a couple of weeks, working 5 hrs per day and you would get bed and board and, if you'd like, help with your English as I am a qualified TEFL teacher. We are looking for someone from mid April. The house has fantastic views and is 5 mins away from one of the prettiest villages in France.

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

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

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
