**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

After having Helpers from all over the world at my old farm in Holland, I just moved to France with my 6 Icelandic horses, 2 dachshunds and 4 cats.
My name is Gerry and I am a Dutch woman of 51 years old, 'retired' veterinary specialist and running saddle fitting courses on academic level in The Netherlands and France. I speak Dutch, English, German and a bit French.

After a year of rebuilding this place, I could move in, but still lots of jobs to do.
So if you have real handyman skills or if you a true gardener (would like to have a small vegetable garden) then you are welcome to stay for 1 or 2 weeks (or longer if we would really get along) at my farm.

The farm is at a magical spot, on the edge of a forest on the border of Deux-Sèvres and Vendée, about 1,5 hour from La Rochelle and Poitiers airport, near the magnificent park Puy du Fou, and historical towns like Vouvant and Parthenay.

You would stay in a double bedroom with private shower in the guesthouse with possibil... more inside

We live in an Old Farmhouse on the edge of a beautiful rural village.

Stunning accomodation internally, work continuing in the landscaped garden and on the exterior of the house - this is what we would like you to help with.

The accommodation we offer is 1st class and is ideal for one - or a couple - or two friends. You would have your own living area consisting of three bedrooms with adjoining lounge - FreeSat, TV, DVD and WiFi. Complete with shower room and toilet.

The work will be varied, interesting and skill-building, and the way we live is open and relaxed.

Working hours and tasks can be altered to suit whoever we accept and would typically be 25 hours per week with great flexibility as to how those hours fit into days. We also expect to share cooking and cleaning duties.

We look forward to having someone come to stay with us and share in our wonderful French lifestyle.

HI !
Who would like to help me to start a little permaculture garden ?
I need help also to do the clearing, and if this inspires you : construction and maintenance work. The season is conducive to spending time outdoors and invite us to be one with Nature.

I love to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures, and share mine.
People are usually pleased to visit my region, in the Limousin , South west of France ; Castles, vineyards, lakes, ocean...

My little farm is near a river and lakes, and there are lots of walking and bike tracks in the area. 3 bikes available for you to borrow if you like that kind of thing.
The main town with all commodities is Confolens at 10 minutes by car, and the village at 4 minutes with a baker, post office, hairdresser and a doctor. Big towns Limoges , Saint Junien (25km), Angoulême are less than one hour drive.

There are 13ha of fields for horses that I have been managing without any chemical molecules for 23 ye... more inside
