Like a "farmhouse museum" : Over 60 helpers from all continents and 18 countries appeared in 6 years to pay a one-week-visit to this most charming and romantic half timber compound from 1722.
The antik real wood furniture in all rooms will give you the impression to take part in a time voyage.
Almost 300 years old the compound is quietly situated at the calm edge of a hamlet of some 300 souls. It's also the green lung of the village.
Main building completely restorated in traditional style. Romantically renovated kitchen with additional wood stove. Significantly reduced consumption of fossil resources by a bio mass based central heating system (pellets) and a seldomly used car. Efforts to reduce electromagnetic radiation. No TV ;-)

Hello all! WE ARE COMPLETE UNTIL END OF FEBRUARY 2020 !!!! Minimumstay: 3 Weeks – Gardeners, Craftsmen(&wymen) and Allrounders welcome!

We are a relatively new, open-hearted community in the southwest of France. With joy and pioneering spirit we, a good dozen residents aged between 27 and 73, create our new living space. Our organic farm, a former domain, is located on a beautiful southern slope in the Malpère hills in the Aude region. About two thirds of our land (86 hectares in total) consists of forest, which we use gently. On the other third we run a variety of organic vegetable gardens and on the farmland we have planted fruit and nut trees and prepare our fields for organic crops and pastures. Some donkeys, ponies, sheep and horses have moved in. Chickens and goats are planned. We are also interested in alternative cultivation methods such as permaculture and agroforestry which should be realized here. Also for Landart beats our heart.

Our farm is 40 hectares of rolling woodland and meadow near the small town of Mirepoix, in Ariège, south-western France. We are developing our farm project and currently have 7 Galloway and 9 Casta cows. Our project involves holding meditational Retreats in which guests are given the opportunity to practice yoga, meditation and silent walks in and around the farm. We are also developing a nature sanctuary on all our land which includes the cows, an orchard, recreating wildflower meadows and creating wildlife ponds and of course, showing love and respect to the original inhabitants - the deer, wild boar, buzzards, lizards and so on.

We have recently featured in a BBC documentary 'The Secret Life of Farm Animals' and also in several well-being magazines such as Happiful, Breathe and Pebble.

The foundation of the farm is quietness. That doesn't mean we don't talk, rather that we are dedicated to allowing this natural quietness guide us in all we do.

We are always looking for ... more inside

Years ago I was a marketing student in Spain. Depressed and extremely unconfident about myself, an amazing and horrifying experience took place in my life, taking away from me everything. No more hope, no more dreams, no more sense, no more life.

And then, Life came in. With all its Magic, with all its Love.

I quit my studies, came to France, and travelled for some time around Europe and Asia, following an inner force that guided me towards a more human and nature loving existence. People, permaculture, biointensive gardening, yoga, meditation, healthy food, music, all came to me with such an obvious and important place in what started to become a happy, simple, rich and meaningful path.

The path is still full of challenges and growth opportunities, and I’m far from living a perfect harmonious life… it just takes some scratching on the surface to realize the sweet contradictions! But despite the present lack of harmony in my life, I’m excited to feel that my intuition and... more inside

Beautiful Manoir only 2kms from Estang a local village that has all amenities and several bigger towns all within 15 minutes.
We have horses, dogs and cats and if competent there will be an opportunity to ride if desired. There is also a carp lake and we have fishing rods and bicycles that are available.
Oil central heating, wifi and own room with bathroom and lashings of hot water.
The plan is to eventually have a Chambre d'Hote together with Equestrian holidays. Ideally looking for someone from now until May if they are happy here and a couple wold be great. Flexible and easy work; cleaning windows, some painting and tidying up, some gardening. Anything really to help out as many hands make light work. Irish family and wife is going to Ireland for work until May, so a couple where one person could throw together a simple meal (even sausage and chips) would be brilliant but we're open minded as to what skill sets someone has. Not hard or long hours and plenty of time off to sit... more inside

Hello and welcome to our site!

A group of friends originally purchased this beautiful château in the Loire Valley in 2013 and with HelpX like yourself, we worked tirelessly to renovate it, taking it from its dilapidated state to the current splendour of a modern 21st century castle. There are still a couple of spaces to renovate, as well as finishing touches all around the château, so we get excited if you have trades skills to offer.

We have availability for you throughout the year and are keen to book interested people, like yourself, in for longer periods over the summer. We ask a minimum stay of two weeks with us, but longer periods are also a bonus.

We love positive enthusiastic people who enjoy all that life offers and can share that energy with those around them.

If you like working in the garden or have general handyman skills...we would love to hear from you. We would also love a stonemason to join us, as we have a few stone walls to repair. And if you hav... more inside

We,re an easy going couple with three children, two dogs & some chickens. We became the owners of a beautiful old textile mill some 6 years back, sitting within 3 hectares of old park gardens & vegetable plots. Sitting just outside the town of Labastide Rouairoux, famous for its history in textiles. We love the mountains and rivers here & enjoy our lifestyle very much.

As a family we are off skiing from February 7th to 15th and are looking for an individual or couple to come and stay . We can offer you a very nice self contained holiday apartment or you can stay within the old mill itself. Our dogs Ludo & ficelle will need cuddles, walking a little and feeding . Oh and the chickens need to be fed & watered too.

On our return there are many projects that can be done around the house & gardens if you wish to stay. We can pick you up from any railway station etc , we look forward to hearing from you,

Simon ,Lara & the tribe.

Having now moved on from our bed and breakfast, in which we were lucky enough to host for some wonderful people, we have now started a new project by the river gardon, just upstream from the world famous "Pont du Gard" unesco monument.
We'd very much appreciate help in making this new place into something special, and hope to get to know some new and interesting friends on the way.

If that appeals to you, please get in touch
Update:
Having now spent sometime getting our garden started and water hole installed, we are getting on with various projects in the garden and outbuildings, with the view to eventually becoming autonomous, any gardening experience helpful, or being able to wield a spade.
