We are a New Zealand/French couple managing a large forest and would love to host anyone (or two, couples are great!) with enthusiasm to help get things done around the homestead. We can usually find something to suit most people's skills/interests.

There's lots of adventures to be had in the forest on the estate. Go for a dip in the lake, head in the forest to gather mushrooms or observe wildlife: deers,stags,wild pigs,foxes. We live in a very sunny part of France, and never cease to enjoy it.

Do you wish to experience life in the French countryside, from the comforts of a large, rustic and beautiful eighteenth century home?

Our lucky HelpXers get a comfy double bedroom with an ensuite shower, with spectacular views onto the fields around the house. There are bikes to borrow so you can explore the small roads through the forest and get around the surrounding villages.

We love to share our place with other kind and generous people. We usually request that our HelpXer guests work 4 hours a day. There's lots to be done on such a big property, and we can tailor the jobs to the skills and interests of those who stay. Jobs include organic gardening, renovation work, cleaning barns, cooking, painting, stone masonry, carpentry...

Meals are included and we like to share cooking with our guests.

In the area there are pre-historic caves to explore, rivers to canoe and medieval villages to visit. We recommend people come with cars, as most places are about 10 minutes drive away (although this can be biked if need be).

We look forward to hearing from you! Please let us know your particular hobbies/passions, and what you can contribute to La Pouyade.

Don't hesitate to contact us for more info.
