We live in a beautiful, traditional 'longere' in the Pays de la Loire, with a bright & airy, two bedroom Gite attached to our house for our helpxers to stay in. There's WiFi available or, if you haven't got a device, you can access the Internet on our office computer. We have a small project music studio attached to our property too.

Our home is in a beautiful rural area, but is only 2km from the nearby town of Gorron, so it's an easy & pretty walk or bike ride away.

Our aim here is to live by Permacultural principles and have created lots of different habitats for our wild friends. We grow our own vegetables and fruit and we also raise some free range poultry for the table and for eggs and have two cats whose job is to be naughty!

We are looking for people to give help with our newly planted woodland - bramble busters are always needed - ditch clearing, compost making or whatever is pressing at that time. We think sustainable living is very important and 'waste' is not something we like to do (or see) - and we want helpxers who are able to respect our efforts to live and work that way.

Flexibility is really important - jobs might require a pickaxe, secateurs or even a vacuum cleaner. However we would never ask a helper to do a job we wouldn't do ourselves and most of the time we will be working alongside you. Getting help is really fantastic but just as important to us is meeting interesting people.

We are friendly, goal orientated people and are willing to offer accommodation and meals for 4 hours per day. Friendly people with a deep and genuine respect for nature, seeking a peaceful environment are our ideal helpxers.

Thanks for reading our listing.
