Hello everybody
We have a lovely home right on the estuary overlooking the wonderful coastal town of St Gilles Croix de Vie, with its fishing port and marinas. All this is just a ten minute walk away from our house. Or we have a slipway for a boat.
We have recently moved back to England after more than twenty years in France. Our house now needs de winterising. I.E. A good clean up, a bit of painting, and the large garden, mainly grass, tidied up. The house is up for sale and needs to look nice.
It would be a wonderful opportunity for somebody, preferably a couple, (but that is not obligatory,) to explore this beautiful region.
You might like to work mornings and take afternoons off or vice versa. We are flexible. And we think you would need to be there for three to four weeks, starting sometime in March.
You must be able to do a tidy job and be responsible.
You can see photos of us and the accommodation on offer on our website http://david.crowley.pagesperso-orange.... more inside

"Freundshaft durch Natur".

Lying in one of the high valleys of the Aude, in the foothills of the Pyrenees,30kms south of Carcassonne, this place is a converted eighteenth-century water mill set in a sheltered wooded canyon. There are rocky cliffs above, a stream below and a natural rock pool for swimming and a naturally filtered pool as well.

We have access to small towns 6 or 7km away to the west. To the East is a vast open wilderness. The landscape is beautiful and rugged. There are cliffs, deep water and extremes of weather but the canyon itself is a sheltered oasis of peace , protected from the wind and bathed in sunshine.

Life here offers a combination of serious outdoor activities, companionship and fun in a fabulous natural setting. It is unusual among WWOOF and HelpX venues in that it has a dedicated aim to foster community among men. If this idea is interesting to you please check our website where you will find further details.

Hello !

We are a nice family with 2 parents and 2 homeschooled daughters (4 & 5 years old), living in the french Alps, between Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and Geneva (Switzerland).
We are looking for helpers (English, Spanish, French native langage please), a week minimum. You'll work about 5 h/day, 5days/week maximum.
From middle March to middle April, we need help to build a henhouse and to start and work in a vegetable garden with a greenhouse. Any person who like to work in a garden is welcomed.
In Spring, we also think to renovate a little house (one room)in our garden. So if you have skills in construction, you will have our preference.

We live in a house, you will have your own big room, with shared bathroom.
We live together, so cooking/cleaning is a shared task.
Geneva is 45 minutes from home, you will like salsa parties !
You can also practice mountain bike, rafting, paragliding, hiking, climbing, ski...

Organic Status: Organic sustainable permaculture

We moved to France in 2008 from Scotland with the aim of living more ecologically and are passionate about sustainability. We live on the edge of the Perche National Park in a small hamlet and have an old house with barn and outbuildings together with 7 hectares (17 acres) of land. Our nearest village is 2.5 km (1 mile) away and the nearest town, La Ferte Bernard is 5.5 miles to the south with good facilities. From La Ferte Bernard there are easy, direct rail and road links to Le Mans (30 miles) and Paris (105 miles).

Accommodation would be in the house with us and food is sharing our daily repas. It's a bit mad and hectic at times as I am now on my own with my 3 very noisy boys and that is part of the reason that I need some help - the farm needs some TLC after being left last year. I guess I'm just looking to have a friend here, someone who would help with keeping the weeds back so that we actually get some veggies, someone who would like to chuck a bucket of food to the 4-leg... more inside

We normally accept helpers for a minimum of two weeks.
Peaceful location in rural France.

In March we are looking for someone to help convert our van into a camper using the parts from an old caravan. This will probably suit someone with an interest in carpentry.

Then once weather permits, we will be looking for help with roofing, laying paths and decking, decorating and a small amount of gardening.

We are non smoking and are seeking helpers that do not smoke. Helpers should be happy to live as part of the team during their stay, we would expect this to involve helping prepare meals and the inevitable clearing away after.

We accept vegetarians but cannot cater for vegans.

We accept both skilled or unskilled people.

We need people able to work on their own initiative. We will show you how to do the job and provide the necessary equipment and protective clothing although you need your own footwear suitable for outside work.
