After 5 years on the road across 5 different continents, Julien and I have finally settled some roots on the frontier between Brittany and Normandy. Julien is a carpenter, sound engineer and musician from Normandy. I am a nurse, naturopath, massage therapist, dancer and hula-hoop artist from Australia.

Together we are embarking on an epic barn restoration, in the hopes of creating a community living and creative space. The barnhouse was built in the late 1800's and has been uninhabited for the last 30 years. There are a variety of construction and renovation works to be done. We are restoring the barn using traditional artisanal techniques with natural or recycled materials. Looking for handymen or handywomen to help out with construction and renovation all year. Skills in stonemasonry, carpentry and roofing highly sought. We are also hoping to convert an old stable into an artistic studio, for musicians, dancers, circus performers to come and be inspired by nature in their creat... more inside

Alpaca farm
We - our 41 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

We are now looking for HelpXers for the new year.

We are Ron and Judi and we have lived in Northern Brittany for over 13 years and shared the last 11 or so of these with our alpacas! We have been joined from time to time by fantastic helpers who have helped us make life at La Grand-Mere even more wonderful!

We always have lots of outdoor work, which at the moment is helping with the clearing of fallen trees, strimming, constructing a small log and tractor shed and replacing paddock fencing. Later in the season there will be lots of leaf blowing and clearing.
We also have lots of tree work if you have the skills!
Our old bread oven too awaits some loving attention!

Our work can be quite physical so we need strong, energetic, enthusiastic helpers and we would prefer couples rather than singles at the moment.

The focus of our life here is our animals, a small herd of alpacas, chickens, cats and a large flock of doves! For us, the highlight of each day involves doing our... more inside

We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare permaculture smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.Helen also runs a local cafe,shop,bar.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property

Learning is a journey into the unknown!

We will always try our best to let people work on the projects that interest them the most-
either at the smallholding or the renovation in the farmhouse or a mixture of the two.

At the smallholding we are currently :
Chopping firewood
Collecting mulch
Making compost
Planting trees
Brushcutting
Clearing streams.

We are also renovating our farmhouse and recycling various dis... more inside

I would greatly appreciate help in the house and garden from 26 June onwards until mid July and then late July to early September.
Our home is 3kms from one of the lovely little medieval Breton towns in the department. There are many lovely countryside walks in the locality and we are just 18kms from the coast or the city of Saint Brieuc. Public transport is available from the next village - a 1km walk or I may be able to offer a lift.
For accommodation I can offer a nice room with private shower and toilet facilities and all meals provided. Wifi is available if you bring your equipment.

Especially welcomed would be someone with decorating experience who would be willing to help freshen up some of the rooms in the house. This includes the ability to hang paper on two walls and repaint existing walls to freshen them up
Your help would be greatly appreciated around the the garden too - light gardening/weed clearance in the palm beds and small flower border. Our garden sh... more inside
