Help wanted in Gascony, SW France

Having now moved on from our bed and breakfast, in which we were lucky enough to host for some wonderful people, we have now started a new project by the river gardon, just upstream from the world famous "Pont du Gard" unesco monument.
We'd very much appreciate help in making this new place into something special, and hope to get to know some new and interesting friends on the way.

If that appeals to you, please get in touch

We are a married couple and used this site in 2013 with great success. We have lived in France now for about 11 years, and we enjoy the relaxed lifestyle afforded by a rural location, in a beautiful part of France. We live on the outskirts of a small village, with the town of Saint Mathieu being about 5 Km away,where essential services are available- i.e Doctors, pharmacy, Supermarket and shops etc. Both Limoges and Angouleme are both approximately 45kms away.

We share our environment with our 4 "Mousketeers" (cats), whom, we think,enjoy living with us as much as we enjoy having them.
We, as a couple, undertake virtually all of the tasks necessary for living as independently as possible - from gradually bringing our old farmhouse a little more up to date, trying to grow as much vegetables as we can & maintaining the grounds, to building a swimming pool that we completed last year

However, herein lies the problem: It is the latter objective (the pool), which we have bee... more inside

Hi,

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 Vermilliere) at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche Canal.

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 as B&B and Guest House facility, 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 guests. We believe this is our way to make a better world.
We own several kind of poultry, like ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sheep, a bunch of rabbits, a couple of pink pigs, a dog (Lila) and two cats (Tango & Samba), along with a vegetable garden of 600 sq. meters and an orchard of 30 different varieti... more inside

Bonjour everybody:)

We need help with household and cooking. Some babysitting. We would prefer to have 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 work 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 days off to Germa... more inside

Hello Helpxers, We are looking always for helping hands for our project.

Our Foundation named "les Bonnes Bouilles de Bouillac" is a charity constituted
under French law (law 1901), which aims to offer young adults with learning disabilities
a safe environment to live and work.

In preparation for the opening of our foundation, we are renovating an old stone-house, and are already running our farm here in South West France.

We intend to use the property for people with learning disabilities who can come for several day's/week's, and have a break out.

As well we want to create 3 local markets ( one is already running) run by young adults with learning disabilities who are selling home produced products
(hams,sausages,patè etc),and meet people in a "buyer/seller" context, facilitates contact with others and gives them a boost to their self-esteem.

We hope that those encounters will change the way we see their disability.

Later on we intend to put this... more inside
