-- Helpx est un échange, ce n'est pas couchsurfing --


Hello,

I'm looking for a dynamic person speaking a bit of French.
I propose you the exchange from January the 1st to May the 1st, to help me cleaning, gardening and a little bit of building :) (I am starting a permaculture garden). I also have 2 little 20m2 rooms left to finish renovating.
I am living in a historical house, in the middle of the forest (5Km away from the village of St Laurent d'Olt) 45min driving from Millau, Rodez (airport), and Mende. Ideal place for people loving nature and quiete places. There are plenty of hinking trails around the house.
Since we are quiete far from everything, it is advised to have a car. But it is not necessary, we can drive you and also lend you a bike.
The tasks could be odd jobs (painting, helping to some building), gardening, cleaning. You'd be working 5 hours max a day, 6 days over 7 (day off on Sunday) against : priv... more inside

Hello HelpXers, welcome to our home in Poitou Charente, W.France. We are located just outside a small village with a good community. We are in a beautiful rural area. Our house also has a 2-bedroom self-contained ground-floor apartment for helpers. We often have to travel so hope to find (ideally) a couple, or two friends, to look after our house and animals (dogs and cats) when we have to go away. We'd also like regular help with the gardens, which are very large. We want to create an organic vegetable plot too. The river Argenton runs through our grounds so it's good here for fishing too. We would welcome a longer-term helper and have no objection to children coming with their parents as long as they are kept away from the river. We are both English and we look forward to hearing from you.

------------------------------------------------

If you want to have a nice summer, you can come in Picardy, near Normandy and Paris.

I bought last year an old house in cob with a barn and stable that I continue to renovate. So you can come to learn how to do and help me some hours a day. Doing painting and many other things.

You can also help me for gardening, for cooking.

My parents live at some kilometers, they are farmers (cereals and cows), you will maybe assist to the harvesting season (august).

I'm 26 years old, I'm Engineer in mechanical. I like photography, nature, artistic leisure and good food of course !

You don't need particular skills. There are many things to visit, overall if you like country side, you can have a bike. You can have internet access.

It's near Beauvais, where there is an airport with flights for many destinations in France or Europe with Ryanair or other. Near one of the beautiful village of France (Gerberoy).

If you have any q... more inside

Organic Status: AB

Nous, Cassandre et Yohan, sommes en cours de création d'un lieu où cohabitent, le végétal, l'animal, l'humain, et autres (en cours d'évolution).
En pleine campagne semi-sauvage, la plus grande surface en transformation, aujourd'hui en phase d'engrais vert, est destinée à un « verger-forêt comestible », d'inspiration permacole, pour un revenu agricole et l'autonomie alimentaire.
La propriété commence au hameau, pour descendre dans une vallée et remonter sur un petit plateau qui descend vers la forêt de châtaigniers, chênes et hêtres, le tout parsemé de sources et de ruisseaux.
Nous sommes sur le piémont du Massif Central (verdoyant et vallonné ), à deux sauts du Causse (plus sec et caillouteux, pittoresque aussi) avec des cités médiévales classées plus beaux villages de France un peu partout autour...
Les activités sont au jardin (700m²), à la restauration de la maison pierre et aux constructions :cabayourte (à mi-chemin entre la cabane et la yourte(pour l'automne au mieux)) et ... more inside

Bonjour à tous (English version below)

Je m’appelle Alix et suis une mère de famille de 53 ans élevant seule 1 ado : garçon de 18 ans et une pré-ado : fille de 13 ans : 2 enfants adorables et attachants. Ma mère, âgée de 81 ans habite la maison mitoyenne. Elle est totalement autonome.

C’est ma 1ère expérience en temps que « host ».

Je recherche uniquement des anglophones car je
souhaite aussi (à l’occasion d’échanges entre nous) pouvoir converser en anglais pour améliorer mon niveau. Il en sera de même vis-à-vis de mes 2 enfants qui ont besoin d’être aidés en langue étrangère : notions d’espagnol et d’allemand souhaitées si possible. Une aide aux devoirs à partir de 17h serait pour moi d’une aide précieuse, car la motivation fait défaut. Sinon : tant pis.

Pas de souci si vous ne parlez pas le français !!!

Pour le reste, il s’agit de travaux de ménage à faire régulièrement sur les 2 maisons ainsi que la préparation des repas : française ou autre. Pas de végétariens... more inside

Hello,

I'm traveling by inland river barge through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. Most of the time in France and 250 KM around Paris. The barge is an original Dutch built peniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend.

There is a simple separate -little- room (see first photo..)for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitaire, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave.

The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking? ? ? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

Kind regards,

William
