My partner and I work a lot in the summer so need a little extra help walking our 3 dogs, maintaining the allotment and keeping the house clean. Must be animal lovers, our dogs are very good and can be walked off the lead - you can even go running and cycling with them.

All in all, no heavy or difficult work involved, just keeping things ticking over while we are too busy to do so.

We live 10 minutes by car from Argeles Sur Mer and you can easily cycle there too. We have several bikes you can use to go to the seafront or explore the mountains and vinyards on our doorstep. Spain is just 20 minutes by car. We really are very lucky here as we seem to have everything - sun, sea, lakes & mountains.

The house is a traditional 3 storey village house in a quiet village, but with all ameneties. There's a shop, bar, 2 restaurants and a Pizzeria that also does paella etc in the summer. We have a small garden and balcony off the living room.

I am English, but my partner is French so... 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.

If you are travelling with a lapt... more inside

***Bonjour - we are currently seeking helpers to help with coppicing in the woodland and processing fire-wood and also to help with various other renovation projects therefore we need people with a good level of fitness and skill with using tools.****

Originally from the North East of Scotland we moved to Central France and bought the abandoned farm in 2008 after selling up in Scotland in 2006 and down-sizing to a camper-van with our two huge dogs and touring around Europe looking for the right place to put down some roots. We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spen... more inside

I am James, 64 years old, single!

I am renovating a pair of houses at the edge of the Lac de Guerledan although the renovation is on hold for the moment. I need help with mostly outdoor work such as tree cutting, log splitting, etc, therefore boys are preferred due to the manner of the work involved.

You don't have to be skilled, just willing and able.

The accomodation for helpers is a small caravan which is dry and very comfortable, with electricity, but in the small house there is hot water, shower, cooking facilities, fridge, washing machine. There is internet access and TV, in exchange for 25/30 hours per week. I am only able to accommodate 1 helper at a time for up to 2 weeks.

The area is very popular for walkers, cyclists and canoeists. I have a bike for helpers to use. The property is right on the Nantes - Brest canal which in total covers 400km. The Lac de Guerledan is a popular resort especially in the summer months and will be emptied for maintenance in May 2... more inside

SORRY, WE ARE COMPLETELY BOOKED UNTIL AUGUST 10


This is an old farm, meant to become a non-profit center for traumatized people and people who are always caring for others (like caretakers, parents of children with disabilities, priests) and too little for themselves. The center will be run by volunteers.

It might take a few years before we can open the center, as a lot of work has to be done first. We would be very happy if you would come to help us, so if you let us know what your talents are, and why you would like to join us, no doubt we will find you something to do :-)

You could also have a look at the work we already scheduled:

March and April: clearing out a piece of woodland, and building the foundation for the first cabin
May and June: the vegetable garden + clearing out another piece of woodland and building another foundation
July, August and September: the vegetable garden + building the 2 cabins
October: harvesting and conserving fruit
