We are a French/Australian artist couple, living 6 months of the year in France, in our two-storey stone Provencal “mas”. Navacelles is a small village in the South of France, an hour's drive North of Nimes and an hour's West of Avignon and only 30 minutes from the famous medieval town of Uzes.
Our “mas” has been undergoing massive renovations after having been abandoned for 19 years. After three intensive 6 months summer periods, we have completed 90% of it, i.e: the kitchen and large living space downstairs and two large bedrooms upstairs-each with ensuite - and a separate small office/library space. We have begun landscaping work around the main building and envisage continuing that work as well as beginning to work on one of two small independent buildings, currently in a poor state, but which could become artists’residencies.
We are both visual artists with many years of renovation experience and are looking for help with both the landscaping work and the building renovatio... more inside

Here live some Donkeys, poneys and horses. Sure not for the meat! We also have playful dog and cats.

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

Alpaca farm
We - our 42 alpacas, two dogs, three cats and us - live on a small farm on the edge of a village in central Brittany. It is a peaceful place with a small wood and a stream running through the land. There’s lots of birds here and it’s a rare day that has no birdsong, even in winter.
The weather here is generally mild in winter with more rain than snow. Summer is usually very pleasantly warm.
We're looking for someone who will join us in what we’re doing - everything from feeding the alpacas to collecting poo! You can learn all about these wonderful gentle creatures and how a small alpaca farm works.
Depending on the weather and the time of the year, we could also be fleece sorting, nail trimming, fencing paddocks, putting up animal shelters or doing just about anything else that needs done on the farm to make sure that everyone has the best life possible.
We also have building and renovation projects, so lots to keep you interested!
Work isn't hard, but it can ... more inside

The projects will include, renovating several rooms within the property, clearing the land, starting a vegetable garden, roofing a small outhouse, planting 100 olive trees and creating an outdoor bathroom for alfresco bathing! To name a few.

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. No TV ;-)

Now planning for 2020 –( March +)

Keith and I took early retirement from our careers in the UK to live Keith’s dream here in the beautiful Ariege; we certainly did live the dream together and shared a wonderful life. Keith recently lost his battle with cancer. I now find I need help more than ever.

TASKS
I need two pairs of willing hands; a mature minded, sociable couple; partners or two friends who are prepared to share a bedroom with a double bed.
Should you be planning for the coming year it may be an idea to book early; for a 5 to 10 period during from March to October 2020.

Spring is time for garden maintenance; mend growing beds, clearing winter debris, Thaere may be some digging & planting etc. There are always jobs to do throughout the summer, then autumn. is usually clear up time. Tasks are not hard and require little or no experience as I can show you how. What I lack in energy I make up with enthusiasm. Should you have particular skills I am sure th... more inside
