Hello!

My name is Ursula, I live on a 4 hectare property with my daughter Lisa, our dog Balto and two horses Cochise and Djoura.

I am often alone and am in need of some help with the animals and in the garden.
The property is next to a beautiful forest, so for those who enjoy going for walks our house is perfect for you! I have many friends in the surrounding countryside who you will often meet, and I would love to have someone who is happy to care for the dog and horses with me. Helpers with independent spirits (and maybe a drivers license too) are the happiest here.

I also have some other friends (on different farms/ properties) who sometimes take in some of my Helpers too. Sabine, for example, has a black-pig farm near the Pyrenees. Cecile has mohair goats, and Cornelia has 10 horses, chickens, cats and dogs. There may be an opportunity for helpers to spend some time at their houses too.

To resume, the work here is mostly gardening, fencing, horsemanship (relations ... more inside

We live in a hamlet called Piques in the Midi-Pyrenées region on the border of Ariège. The nearest village called Montbrun-bocage is a great example of the hippies lifestyle of the region.
The Pyrenees are located at 70 km for those who like the hiking and you are about 2 hours drive from spain.
The hamlet includes four other families of all ages. The latest arrivals are a young couple of musicians with a little girl and we also rent our second home to a mother and her three children. Many differente and beautiful people live in the same place.

About us :
We are a small family composed of myself Christine my daughter colomba and my parents Jean and Paulette. This is my parents' house but I came back to support them because my mother has alzheimer and my father has to take care of 9 hectares of land. The land includes 4 hectares of forest, there are about hundred fruit trees and a large vegetable garden. We grow fruit and vegetables organically for our own use and follow bio... more inside

Dear lumberjacks, wood-fetisjists and forestspirits: we are looking for couples, duo's and individuals that can help us to turn our oak&chestnut forest into a permaforest/edible garden of eden.

We are living in an old barn in a forest over de Lot river. We aim to be off the grid in water (check!) and electricity (almost there..) and have future dreams of producing what we eat. To do this we have 7 hectares of forest to experiment, play, produce, live, sing and dance.

We're restoring the old apple orchard that was left by the generations before us. Also we're planting a new orchard (using permaculture principals) for generations to come. We have a little veg garden, where we try to find ways to be lazy gardeners but still have some stuff to harvest.

Tasks will be mainly outside in the forest. Cutting trees, restoring walls made with care by our ancestors, clearing land, planting trees, moving wood. Also, we definitely like to see you working your skills and creating the ... more inside

Hi Helpers!

There's a loooooooot of work to improve our "new" home in countryside. You can join and help to take care of the garden, improve the housing, making every kind of works (building, painting, electricity, plumbing, wood-cutting and whatever...).
Actual priority is to clean around, vegetation growing wildly from 20 years.

You can check my CS profile via the web link above to have a more precise idea of my personnality. My partner Viki will be more and often at home too. As a ceramist, we'll try to provide her a lovely and efficient workyard in a refixed part of the house !

We'd be happy to welcome you as friends and of course... life is not only working! Chilling, having walks, enjoying countryside, cooking together... having good times :)

Since we're not permanently at home, we prefer to organize your stay a bit on advance, so that you can come when we are at home and discover together how it gets along.

** Update.....we have Availability from the 28th of August **

We are a Dutch young couple living in Condom in (sunny) Gascony in the South West of France.
We have 2 young children, one boy who is 7 years old and one little girl of 5, we also have always between 6-8 dogs depending on how many rescue dogs we have at that time.
We work together with an association who rescue dogs and when there is a dog in need they call us & we try to help and find them good homes in cooperation with several organisations in Europe, so the dogs are an important factor in our lives.

We are looking for an open minded, caring, energetic, independent handy couple (man/woman) to help us run our daily hectic household which means, cooking, cleaning, walking the dogs, babysitting/entertaining the kids, washing and other diy maintenance jobs. A drivers license, valid in France, is essential & gives you some freedom as we live quite remote.
