Bonjour, je m'appelle Christel, j'ai 62 ans. J’ai fait le choix de revenir dans le village familial à côté de Fécamp (plusieurs générations) et je propose un lieu d’accueil éco-responsable (chambres d’hôte, gîte d’étape, activités de loisir à faible empreinte écologique, bâtiments rénovés avec des techniques d’éco-construction, énergies renouvelables). Un terrain d’environ 1 hectare accueille verger, volailles, 2 ânes et potager. Je m'inscris dans une démarche permaculturelle,citoyenne et solidaire.
J'accueillerai avec plaisir des Helpers et Helpeuses afin de partager un moment de vie autour de ces valeurs et des travaux du moment : entretien du jardin potager, soin des animaux, plantation d'arbustes fruitiers, ... Travaux réalisables sans force physique particulière. Je baragouine l’anglais suffisamment pour qu'on puisse rire ensemble.La mer est à 6 km.
A bientot
Christel

This year we are looking for help with the construction of a terrace, ideally in May or June. Accommodation will be in a very comfortable caravan, with meals eaten together in the farmhouse.

We are a British couple who have lived in the north of Pays de la Loire for 9 years, trying to be as self-sufficient as possible (given the limitations of the size of our small holding - >2 ha- and our advancing years - 60's!!). We have 2 very large vegetable plots, a large poly-tunnel, chickens and rabbits, as well as 3 dogs and 2 yard cats. English is spoken all the time, and we have adequate French for conversation and everyday circumstances. We are happy to help improve your English.

Our smallholding is surrounded by countryside, both fields and forest (the nearest neighbour is 600m away). The property is bounded by a small stream. The nearest shop, boulangerie and hotel/restaurant are 7km away. We are equidistant (13 km) from Bauge, La Fleche and Le Lude, all of which have f... more inside

Help with gardening work. A modern countryside villa with large landscaped garden desperately needing attention.

We are a mature English couple unable to work as hard as we used to and require helpers who are mature-minded IDEALLY couples/partners or two friends. Enthusiasm and energy are more important than gardening experience, but you must be physically fit, strong and competent with tools, both manual and petrol driven. We would like helpers with a willingness to clear and tidy neglected areas as well as weeding, planting, strimming and hedge trimming. Collecting leaves, rubbish and trimmings and taking them to the local waste disposal site. We have an old van for this purpose, so a driving licence would be useful. We also have a lively dog, who will become your best friend once she has overcome her initial wariness.

In return for 4-5 hours work a day we will provide you with comfortable private accommodation (2 bedrooms, shower room, living room/kitchen, heating) and t... more inside

**** URGENT - NEED HELPX *****


Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 23, 21, 19, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Laval and Nantes.

I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole". We'll be happy to go with you to the Puy du Fou, who is 15 minutes from les Herbiers.

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique

This is an urban B&B situated 500m from the train station on a tree-line boulevard in Nice. It is an apartment on the first floor of a beautiful old-style building. The neighborhood is not touristic, it is a multi-cultural residential area. There is a daily open air market a 5 min walk away. The main tourist areas, the Old Town, the beach & promenade are only a 15 min walk or 3 tram stops away. Public transport in Nice--trains, buses & trams is very inexpensive.
The apartment is 105m3, 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are for guests, one for me, a dining/sitting room, kitchen, bathroom & toilet room.
I am looking for one person to assist me running the B&B for about 6 weeks, late March till the end of April 2017 because I am having a shoulder replacement surgery & will be unable to do the simple housekeeping chores I usually do myself.
I have a little dog, Rocco, a 14 yr old terrier mix who hates walks & only goes out to do his business & have a little sniff around. I will be in hospital ... more inside

A big thank you to all our Helpx friends for having made 2016 such a memorable year - you've accomplished so much at the château which now stands as a beacon for other large-scale restoration projects in France.

We have vacancies from mid March onwards 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 about to start on the renovation of one of the 3rd floor suites in the New Year so feel free to indulge your urge to demolish stuff on a grand scale!

We have need for Masonry, Carpentry, Forestry, Gardening, Grounds Maintenance, Housekeeping budget management skills. We especially ... more inside

Do you like to spend some time in the beautiful hills in the south of France in the end of April ? or in August/September.

We could need you for fencing, gardening. And also probably for housesitting and taking care of the animals when we go away for some days.
So you could feed the animals and enjoy the countrylife and the independance.

We have a very nice dog, 4 cats, 6 chickens and 10 cows and some calfs.

We bought an old farm, we moved in (may 2015) and have been renovating since.
You can find our farm at 60 km's south of Toulouse. We are 56 and 60 years old and we are from Holland and moved to France in 2004. We speak dutch, french, english and can understand german. We are open minded and like to meet people from other countries. When we were students we travelled a lot.

We can have some meals together during the week and we have a nice little holidayhouse (gite) for the helpers where you can stay for free. With a new kitchen in it where you can also cook you... more inside
