Hi there,

We have several vacancies from mid-April onwards throughout 2017 so if you are a COUPLE, or FRIENDS TRAVELLING TOGETHER and OVER THE AGE OF 25 we would love to host you at the château for at least 2 WEEKS but preferably longer.

We bought this wonderful castle in the Loire Valley which was suffering from a spiral of neglect and together with Helpxers like yourself, we have worked tirelessly to renovate it to a 21st Century standard however there are several essential and urgent jobs still outstanding. We're just starting on the renovation of one of the 3rd floor suites so feel free to indulge your urge to demolish stuff on a grand scale!

We have need for:

*Masons* *Carpenters* *Lumberjacks and Jills* *Gardeners and groundspeople* *Pool Maintenance support* *Housekeepers and budget managers*

We especially need someone with an understanding of *wells, pumps and irrigation* to resurrect the redundant water features in the château grounds.

Generally speaking... more inside

Organic Status: We do our best, in our own way

***Welcome to La Vermillière, a place to share, to learn, to laugh, to enjoy, and above all, to love life. Welcome to our little piece of Paradise***

Dear Helper,
We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette & Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm (La Vermillière) at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Seven years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sheep, a bunch of rabbits, a couple of pink ... more inside

Hey everyone!

We're a young couple with a baby taking over a beautifull 10ha vineyard in a excellent terroir of Bordeaux area. Even if we have experience in viticulture & oenology, we're only getting into our third year on our own. Big challenge ! We'll be trying as much as we can to put biodynamy in practice and we're also bringing our horse in the vine.
A nice chance for people curious about wine to learn more about it and for those who simply like having some physical excercice in an amazing nature ;-)
For now, we're looking for help in the vine We're passionate and are ready to share what we know and to learn from what you can teach us !
we share our beautifull environement, a nice place to sleep, good food and of course wine (2015 is great, 2016 too ;)).

Hope to cross your way in the vine soon !

Julien

Bonjour everybody:)

From the 25th Marchwe need help with household and cooking. Some babysitting. We would prefer to host a girl.

As you see in our profile, we already had some helpers, and thanks to them the house and garden are much nicer.
We have a dog (a 1,5 year old Wiener) and a cat, they are both allowed in the house.

Etienne works from home, Monika is at her restaurant from Thursday to Saturday for the most of the day. When is home on Sunday and Monday she loves to spend time with Chloé, and cooking;)

We are always open to your DIY ideas, but right now we don't have any projects.

On rainy days we'd like to scan a lot of family photos, which are on paper now. (yes, we are so old;). )

We both are quite busy so you have to be somebody who can and doesn't mind to work alone. Doesn't mean you will be always alone of course:)

But let's not just speak about the work:

Our house is situated in the East of France, so if you want to make some trips on your day... more inside
