Update 13 september 2014.

Help is needed for organising and cleaning after renovation and still some smaller renovation work on the old stone house.

Gardening and wine picking for the harvest as well :-)

Work consists helping with small renovation things here and there, holding/supporting and bringing tools and materials, making final wall decoration, painting and cleaning.

It is important to be flexible, independent and a self-starter.

Soon we will pick wine for a small private production and you can help and have fun with that as well as we do it the old fashioned way.

Minimum four hours helping per day please.

The farmhouse are situated between 3 small willages in an idyllic wally with a river.

There's a terrasse with terrasse pool where to cool down and tan in the summer heat.

The nearest town is St Paul de Fenouillet is 15 minutes drive, and the larger town, Ille sur tet, with a train station is 30 minutes drive.

We also have the privelege of ... more inside

** We are looking for 1 or 2 helpers ! **

Hello !

We are a young french couple (27 and 30) and we are looking for help to renovate our house in the French Alpes.

About us:
We are IT and civil engineer. We like playing and listening music, sciences, sport and have fun. We are easy going, no special food diet. We traveled one year in Australia and 6 months around the world, and we were helpers too! We like to speak English and we can teach you French as well. We don't have any pets. Annabelle love cooking and nature; and Sebastien love computers, photography, and handiworks.


About our project:
We bought an old house last winter (built in 1961) and our project is to renovate everything. We just started in January and we would need some help. We have plenty things to do until 2016 ^^, depending on the moment. For now we need:
- Digging
- Electricity
- Wall construction
- Housekeeping (and trying new food recipes!)
- Various works!

Hello ! I’m looking for help from mid-october to restore a house near Paris and make it a nice place to live. I’m a student in medicine and I speak English and a little bit of Spanish. The house is located in the suburb of Paris in Issy-les-Moulineaux, 10 minutes away from the metro line. You can reach the city centre of Paris in 30 min with the metro line and rental bike stations are close to the house (10 min away by foot). The plan is to restore the house which was not used for some times and change it in a nice cosy place. You would mainly paint the walls, do small DIY, furnish and decorate the rooms and take care of the garden : mowing, cutting some trees, plants some flowers and create a vegetable garden. So you don’t need to be specialized in anything just willing to work in a nice atmosphere and with some nice people. Work would be around 4 – 5 hours per day with 2 days off per week when it’s more convenient for you. I'm searching for someone from beginning of october/mid-oc... more inside

Organic Status: Beyond Organic/Regenerative

Looking for help from someone who has knowledge of how to create and analyse QUESTIONNAIRES/SURVEYS.

Hi there, Tobias here. Where? The Bearn? A well-kept secret in the South West of France. A beautiful and diverse region with its own timezone - 15 minutes behind the rest of France. It has everything that you need including food, wine AOCs, music, culture, rivers, mountains, surf.

Here a one-man-band (with riffs as an agricultural scientist/viticulturist/inventing/building type), is slowly setting up an organic/permaculture inspired project on a jewel of a piece of land (see fotos - the diamond shape). The soil (a clay sandy mix), aspect, exposition and shelter are all beautiful - sadly the land had been neglected for 4 years so there is lots to do. Just entering the third year. As yet I cannot live on the land, except for camping. Helpers will live with me in the centre of the local town (10KM away) - so a great work/life situation.

Planned work:

Hello everybody:)

As you see in our profile, we had already some helpers, and thanks to them the house and the garden are much nicer. On August 4th our child Chloé was born, so now we are three:)

The most important help would be collecting stones from the garden from a surface of 500m2.(photo below) The nice stones will be used to repair the wall with the neighbour. It is weather permitted work.

If it is not so nice outside there are some things to be done in the house also: removing wallpaper and when finished:painting.
Helping with cleaning or cooking is always appreciated.

We are always open to your DIY ideas.

But let's not just speak about the work:

Our house is situated in East of France, so if you want to make some trip on your days off to Germany, Luxemburg or to Belgium, it is really close.
Our area is quite nice also, the river (Meuse) is 500 m from the house, we are not far from Madine Lake (Lac de Madine), and Verdun is just a half an hour (WW1 me... more inside
