OUR PROJECT = Rehabilitation of a old stone farmhouse in the forest/ working on our vegetable garden & creating water bassins

As a family we started to change our life style to a more responsible one ( re-use of materials, less waste, vegetarian food). We are learning continuously and like to share experiences and pass a message to our kids.

We are converting a small (abandoned for over 60 yrs) farmhouse into a sustainable living accommodation. We love to share our experience with people who would like to share their experiences with us in return.

Some of our kids are regularly wooffing in other parts of the world.


We live in the South of France between Provence and Ardèche area at the border of the "Cevennes" mountains/natural park area. A beautiful natural environment, but not isolated.

Hello to you, and welcome to our HelpX info page. We hope you will find our page interesting, informative, and most of all, appealing to you.

Kath and I are down-to-earth Yorkshire ex-pats who would want to make you feel welcome, at home, & relaxed at our Belle Maison, which is about 150 years old. We live in the commune of St Pardoux, Deux-Sevres, in a very small and very quiet hamlet of just 4 families.

St Pardoux is 8km away from the historical town of Parthenay. Poitiers is just over an hour's drive away, with Tours, La Rochelle and Nantes being about 90 minutes away. May we remind potential helpers that it really is a very quiet area where we live.

Help is needed with sorting out and painting/spraying three outhouses. This is not difficult work, but it will involve plenty of lifting and shifting. We are not looking for totally inexperienced helpers, but we will look at the skill sets of any applicants. The more experience you have, the better, the more likely we wil... more inside
