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

We are an English couple living deep in Bordeaux wine country. Bordeaux is approximately 1 hour away and Bergerac 45 minutes.

We are looking for people as soon as possible to help us with our renovation project, gardening, cleaning and general help.

Our property is situated just outside a small village amongst the vineyards. The village has shops, bars etc and our local large town of Sainte Foy La Grande (with its famous Saturday market) is only 15 minutes away.

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

Unfortunately we do not cater for vegetarians.

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

Hi there, Manue and Tobias here. Where? The Bearn? A well-kept secret in the South West of France. A beautiful and diverse region with its own timezone - 15 minutes behind the rest of France. It has everything that you need including food, wine AOCs, music, culture, rivers, mountains, surf.

Here a two piece orchestra (with riffs as an agricultural scientist/viticulturist/inventing/building type, art therapist, dance specialist), are slowly setting up an organic/permaculture inspired project on a jewel of a piece of land (see fotos - the diamond shape). The soil (a clay sandy mix), aspect, exposition and shelter are all beautiful - sadly the land had been neglected for 4 years so there is lots to do. Just entering the 6th year. We have been living on the land for over a year.
Planned work:

UPDATE - The veranda/hangar and water system are all but finished. The rest is general agriculture, along with the other projects below. Come and join in!

To any Helpers who are planning to visit South-West France in the next month....we are hoping to find some suitably enthusiastic helpers for the whole month of May 2017, and it's a beautiful time of year to visit the Dordogne!
You will find us an easy-going, adventurous, young(ish) English couple living and working for the past 14 years in a beautiful, large property in the Dordogne region of SW France. You would love staying at our place! We very much enjoy meeting new people and do a lot of international travelling ourselves. We have older children in their 20’s who are sometimes at home with us from time to time.
We rent out our house during the summer months and need to maintain it in tip-top condition for our guests.
In return for very comfortable accommodation and tasty meals, we would like help with any or all of the following: gardening (and land management of our 42 acres), tree-cutting and log-splitting (all machinery based), decorating (window frames and shutters), gen... more inside

We are a family of 4 living in the Gironde, 20 minutes drive from Saint Emillon in the Bordeaux wine-region and very close to the quaint lively village of Gensac and the Dordogne river. Fiona is from New Zealand, Niels is from Denmark and we have 2 primary-school aged daughters, who both go to the local village-school. We are in our mid 40'ies and easy-going we believe :-) France has been our home-country for 4 years. We live in an old house, which we are currently renovating little by little. we have had great experiences with Helpx and could do with a couple of extra sets of hands for a little while. At the moment we are looking at digging a pool in our garden. We are looking at tidying up the garden-area around where the pool is going in with dry-walls, clearing and moving of stone and debris. All pretty heavy-duty stuff. We are getting machinery in to help with most of it, apart from the dry-walling. If you're handy with your hands in the renovating-department we are also loo... more inside
