We are a friendly couple (Sue and Xavier) requiring some help in setting up a bnb and ultimately a triathlon centre with its own allotment, chicken coop, running track, swimming pool and gym. There is an extensive list of jobs from gardening to indoor DIY. All abilities welcome.

The 1872 house we are renovating is situated at the bottom of the Pyrenees just south of Pau. Sports enthusiasts, nature lover or those wanting to improve DIY skills will enjoy what we have to offer.
Hours of work will depends on the jobs but a full day's work will see you with breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Accommodation is within the house, shared room (large double) and bathroom. This shared status will evolve with time as our next step is to set extra en-suite bathrooms.
Triathlon specific coaching is available from Xavier, a qualified coach (BYO equipment) and Sue is a qualified massage therapist (charge applies).

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 ! My partner and I used to travel a lot and we miss "traveller stories" We have two beautiful little girls now who are 11 months and 2 and a half yrs, we are settled now in Arcachon (and trying to not miss travelling too much as we have a happy life here by the beach). We are looking for a nanny/aupair for our daughters as we both have jobs that take up a lot of our time. We also need help finishing putting up curtains, picture frames,etc... any playing with the girls and everyday household jobs are welcomed with open arms!!! We are very simple down to earthy people, we enjoy walks, beachdays and cooking homemade food : vegetarian, typical french and morrocan meals are our usual but we love trying new recipes from all over the world.

Beoulaygue (qui en gascon, signifie "Où l'on boit de l'eau") est une ferme du XVIIIe siècle, un bâtiment et quelques hectares attenants, l'Eden retrouvé ! Nous y vivons depuis 2014. Depuis lors, nous avons réalisé divers travaux en matériaux naturels (terre, chaux) ou de récupération, construit une yourte, un fumoir, fait connaissance avec les ânes et la jument que nous avons adopté, récolté et transformé les fruits du jardin (légumes et plantes sauvages aussi) et fondé une famille... A terme, nous aimerions proposer un accueil simple et chaleureux autour de notre table et de notre engouement pour l'éducation alternative, les formes de ce projet se peaufine.

Cette année encore, les travaux seront notre activité principale, des enduits à la chaux et une terrasse en bois sont au programme. Selon la période, les journées seront également rythmées par les quelques légumes que nous aimerions voir pousser, le soin aux animaux, le bois de chauffage, etc… Mais également au gré de l'effer... more inside

Hello,

(version française en bas)

We embarked on the adventure of self-construction in August 2016. We renovate an old farm (over 100 years) in Dordogne (Aquitaine). We try to revive this farm by respecting the old methods.

Gael is trained in market gardening. We started building the greenhouse and the chicken coop. Then in the month of March we will begin the implantation of the garden (influence permaculture)
December 2016 - February 2016: creation of a chaining, go up 3 sprockets bricks and stones, to lay the framework, the roofing, cleaning of the site

In the months to come: reinforce the rubble walls, enlarge the openings, create doors and windows, mount low wall in rubble, Renovation of the bread oven...

Gaël dedicates all his time to the site, he i... more inside
