Hello! 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 and Management Boys and Girls* *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.

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, 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 kind of poultry, such as 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 varieties of fruits, allow us to ... more inside
