We've been renovating and converting a huge barn using natural materials and reusing the original materials where possible.
We are situated in the heart of the forest in the Perigord Natural Park 4km from nearest town, which is lively and beautiful. If you want to be totally immersed in nature and appreciate the wildlife, this is the place for you.
We would like to get a team together to prevent further decay of the larger barn i.e. To strip the roof and retile, also to rebuild parts of stone wall.
There is a lot of work to be done outside like repairs to roof, moving stones, clearing ground, making drainage, levelling, fencing and extending the vegetable plot. The ground has been left unattended for many years but we have made a start planting fruit trees and started a veggie plot using the principles of Permaculture. Julia has done the permaculture certificate and would be happy to pass on what I know. We lived off grid for seven years but do now have electricity.
We would ... more inside

Hello HelpXers, welcome to our home in Poitou Charente, W.France. We are located just outside a small village with a good community. We are in a beautiful rural area. The river runs through our grounds so it's good here for fishing too.

We have to be away from 21 April till mid May so hope to find (ideally) a couple, or two friends, to look after our house and animals (dog and cat) when we are away. We have a golden retriever and one very timid cats. Help in the garden would also be very welcome.

You will need to be self-catering but we can offer a self-contained 2 bedroom apartment in return for help with house and garden if anyone wants to come longer-term. We are both English and we look forward to hearing from you.

French Chateau under renovation in quiet rural location, close to local village. We are looking for help all year round with building renovation work, decoration and services in the main building, landscaping of the gardens and woodland maintenance. Accomodation is in your own room in the main house in a finished part of the building. Full board included.
There is plenty to do so we can host people with relevant experience, or those with none, as long as you've got a happy disposition and are willing to help with whatever is going on at the time that's fine. There is wifi in the house and we can provide cycles for those who enjoy cycling. The local countryside is perfect for this.

We are flexible with working hours and free time, so if you would like to know more, please drop us an email. We now have space for summer 2017.

Traditional farmhouse and outbuildings with a mixture of grass and woodland. Large kitchen and flower cutting garden and orchard with cherries and apples.

The inside of the house has two guest bedrooms with double beds, one with an ensuite shower and toilet. The house is heated by wooburners with extra heating in the bedrooms.

Although we are not vegetarians or vegans we are happy to change our meals to accommodate any requirements. Glenys is a Coeliac and a very good cook and prepares meals from fresh and local ingedients. Our first language is english but we speak very basic french so would always welcome any help with learning more french.

We are 800 metres from our village and three kilometers from the nearest shop. We're an hour by car from the Spanish border and have great views of the Pyrénées. We don't have brilliant mobile phone reception but we do have very fast broadband.

We are both in our early sixties and whilst Glenys is reasonably fit I have a fair amo... more inside

We have a retreat centre which is used for yoga courses, self-development workshops, shamanic trainings etc.
We are currently inviting helpers for this April to assist on two workshops: 'Drum Birthing' and 'Welcoming our Daughters on the threshold of womanhood' (female only for the latter workshop). Tasks would include getting meals out, washing up, cleaning, food preparation, tidying up the grounds. You would work alongside the two of us to create a beautiful experience for people attending the course.

At other times of the year we need help keeping it nice for visitors: weeding the flower beds, straightening the sunbeds, hanging out washing, but someone flexible that could also turn their hand to painting furniture, or indeed help move it, popping into town to pick up lunch or some lightbulbs, or chat to a bored 10 yr old girl.

I am a former communications manager for the Green Party, a writer and shamanic practitioner in training. My husband is workshop facilitator, tea... more inside

I have recently decided to fix up a derelict family Chateau which has been left abandoned for way too long (see my blog post) in the hope of eventually creating a well-ness centre etc.

Looking for 2 hardworking individuals to help me restore the Chateau surroundings. Work will include gardening, cleaning and various jobs such as de-gutting drainpipes, tearing down old ceilings amongst various other jobs that I have not yet seen (there is so much to do it is difficult to know where to start).

Any gardening/building experience most appreciated. I myself am extremely hardworking yet lack the knowledge & physical strength to do some manly work thus I would prefer to have 2 men to help with this project however couples or 1 man & 1 woman are also welcome.

Minimum stay of 1 week, maximum stay 1 month in exchange for (mainly) vegetarian meals and board. Work expected is 5 hours per day 5 days a week. Accommodation is basic (mattress on pallets) but clean with room leading onto a... more inside

Hello Helpers!

This project is all about a reinstallation of a brewery operation in South of France. When we came here first in 2013 we found a bancropted brewery with extraordinary nice beer quality, we took over and had three seasons of growing demand and happy clients. Due to many reasons we finally had to move from the original building and now need to upgade and reinstall the brewing materials into the new premises. So far our team consists of:

--Anja, 47, German, she is running the operation, acts as the legal face to the outside
--Jens, 48, German, responsible for engineering, cost reduction and business development
--Andrea, 28, Italien, is doing whatever is needed and makes friend with many clients and is interested in learning everything about the business, he's running the operation in the winter, he finds and rules new markets
--Heinz, 64, German, Engineer, Inventor, Sailor, Traveller, Allrounder adds the eco thought in all aspects of the overall procedure, t... more inside

This is a language school run by Lucinda and Sandra both from the UK, there are 2 English language schools for French school children (& Adults). What is a little different about our schools, is that we have tried to set them up as a mini cultural exchanges. The children come to us for lunch or after school for tea. Most of the learning is done through repetition, singing songs or playing games, with the accent on communication skills and speaking.
What we are looking for is an extra native English voice, a second pair of hands to help with our group lessons and a little help keeping the school clean and tidy.

For anyone wanting to learn or improve their French this could be perfect for you. Teaching is a great way to learn and although you will be essentially teaching English you will have many occasions to speak and improve your French.
