We are bringing back to life a 500 year old French house in the foothills of the mountains that has suffered more than 50 years of neglect. It has a fertile garden that is totally, naturally organic but needs clearing and planting with our choice of vegetation rather than what chooses to grow there itself (in great profusion).

The sort of jobs that we would like help with include cooking, food preparation and preservation, cleaning, re-organising, repairing, rebuilding, and decorating in the house, and clearing, landscaping, planting, weeding, power and other tool maintenance and repair, etc.

We are looking for people who share our desire to have a simple sustainable lifestyle that is stress free and very much aligned with the principles of nature. We like to meditate, practise yoga, we are vegetarian, we do not smoke or drink alcohol, and we prefer wherever possible to use herbs and natural healing methods over allopathic medicine.

We aim to enjoy working with you in all ... more inside

Hello Helpers, Greetings from sunny SW France. We are seeking 1 or 2 people to stay with us in February or early March and get the garden sorted out. Mostly lots of weeding (maybe tidying and cleaning in the house if it rains!) But at present it's pleasant and sunny. We can offer a warm and friendly welcome with great food, lovely location, excellent accommodation, and 3 gorgeous cats. We primarily need help in the garden: weeding, raking, planting, staking, pruning, etc. And if one of you is good at DIY, we usually have a few odd jobs of repair or maintenance that need doing at any time.

We live in a big house at the end of a no-through road, among Bordeaux vines - lovely and tranquil with little traffic to disturb our 3 cats! We have an indoor heated pool so you can swim whenever you like and it's always about 28 degrees.

Mel is a great cook; apart from International cuisine, he can do Chinese, Indian, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Malaysian etc. We are non-smokers (but you ca... more inside

Dear Helpers,

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette and Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Please, in order to get an appropriate answer, read the entire description and when you contact us please answer to all the questions we ask at the end.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BandB with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sh... more inside

We need somebody able to help with some outside projects, for example painting,wood stacking and some digging.4hrs work per day in exchange for room and food
We have 4cats (spoilt) 1 dog (Old) and 6 goats(no milking required just a piece of bread or two or three).
Juliet loves walking and we are in a local walking group and she often goes out to find new routes for the Monday walks. We are involved in the local commune and tend to have more french friends than English so language is improving.
We offer a bedroom with shared bathroom and you would live as a member of the family. Internet access available at all times. English and French TV.

Hi there,

we are a couple running L'Assalaladou, an inspiring non-profit vacation & retreat center overlooking the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains in the wonderful countryside of the historical Cathar Region, in the very South of France.

L'Assaladou is a domain at the edge of the forest hosting a small campsite, eco-lodges and rental cottages. We have a beautiful swimming pool and a wooden sauna next to it. Some cats, 3 cute kittens and even a few free-roaming chickens will to greet you regularly (no dog). In summer, horses roam around the domain.

The surrounding area is great for nature lovers, it has an abundance of medicinal and edible herbs. There are many exciting walks awaiting you: through the local natural labyrinth, to the lakes, to the Cathar castles and into the Pyrenees mountains. On your way, you'll easily stumble over lively markets and beautifully flowered medieval towns all around you. It's a mysterious land of old celtic and Kathar legends speaking of ... more inside
