My husband Pierre and I, Brigitte, both 62 years old, are wine growers and wine makers on a 16 ha wineyard in the area of Saumur (Loire Valley).

We also have a cat, a dog and a few horses to take care of.
The house is located in a small village, 20 kmw south of Saumur.
You will have your own bedroom in the house and we guarantee a convivial atmosphere.
During summer time, you will enjoy the swimming pool.
We like to receive people from all over the world to exchange information and enjoy moments in common.

gardening and building little shelter and painting
We are in a great location for visiting the Loire Valley castles and
enjoying the lively city of Tours (15 minutes away from our home).

We provide all food normally. We usually share dinner (that I cook)
together while the helper will be welcome to cook for himself when we
do not share a meal together. We are food lovers and the fridge is
always full.

Our minimum stay is 1 week, there's no smoking inside the house.

I would need help for two tasks:

- gardening work: we just replanted a new lawn and would need someone
who could help following up with that. Making sure the lawn grows back
well, replanting and getting the garden back in shape. We have some
spare tiles that we would need to find a use for too.

- building a garden shed/storage unit from raw material. For this the
helper will have to be able to work using the gear available without
directions. I do not expect a perfect shed but a place good enough... more inside

Family residence 5 minutes walking distance from a medieval village in the Loire valley. We need someone, or a couple, to help us with the garden in Spring, Summer and Autumn. No particular skills needed, although experience of using chainsaws, strimmers and other tools would be useful. Mainly hedge cutting, general maintenance and some vegetable gardening. Two week stays would be great, working 3/4 hours a day with weekends free. Alternatively work for a couple of days a week and take the rest of the time off. I'm a good cook and not stingy with the wine! Non smokers preferred but we're not fanatical about it. This area is full of history, famous chateaux, UNESCO world heritage sites, major cities such as Tours, Angers and Le Mans nearby. Lovely walks, close to rivers and lakes so fishing an option. If you want a holiday in France but maybe can't afford it, or if you have a two week break between longer term projects, then this will be ideal for you. We can pick you up f... more inside

Hi, This is a real challenge for you !!!
We are trying to renovate the farm and run it at the same time. It is not easy. It had been abandoned for a few years. We started with a few chickens and rabbits, now we have goats, sheep, a donkey, lots of birds, a huge fowl unit under construction, clearance of the ground - brambles and stinging nettles all over ! as well as a bit of a garden. The project of a small business is hatching, but I have to start a year's course to obtain a status of a farmer. So I need help with the morning chores, not really anything else, although participation in all aspects of life tending to be self sufficient muchly appreciated ;-). The morning chores include:
-preparing the breakfast faire for the 2 pigs, 10 goats, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits; the sheep and the donkey have all-you-can-eat buffet in their 6 ha field behind the house; distributing hay to those who eat it, some straw to make everybody comfy- as needed, topping up water for everybod... more inside

Bonjour!
We are a Dutch family running a certified biodynamic dairy farm in the Mayenne region. We enjoy our simple lifestyle, working with the nature, tending to the the cows, meeting new people and raising our family here.
Apart from the farming aspect, we also have a cheesery where we make our own gouda, a shoppe where we sell locally made bio products (our cheese, milk, local wine, vegetables, bread, etc), and a small campground which runs from May to September. During the summer we are hosting a 10 day art festival, where participants work on the farm and connect with nature and then collaborate on something creative together.
We have 4 children, two in their early teens and two in their twenties (the older ones live here from time to time), two workers coming during the week to make cheese, and lots of animals! 60 cows, some sheep, a horse, peacock, chickens. Plus a garden, vegetable and herb, and some fruit trees to take care of.
We can host you during spring and summer, ... more inside
