Helper opportunities from now until September.

We are very willing to host helpers, but on the basis of no more than two persons for a maximum of two weeks during the Summer.

We are a retired English couple, living in Lower Normandy with a pygmy goat, Podge the dog and 4 attention seeking cats. We need help with animal care, gardening, renovations and cleaning in exchange for board and lodging.Currently we have lots of logs for firewood which need cutting to length, splitting and storing to season.

Helpers must be prepared to cuddle up with a cat or dog occasionally! We can share with you animal husbandry skills, local culture and history and can help to improve your French or English language. No shopping malls or clubs - you must be prepared for a very simple but peaceful way of living. Suit helpers looking for an experience away from the rat race. Vegetarians catered for and we have a large library of English books, wireless broadband and UK satellite TV.

There is plenty on as we endeavour to raise production levels of our delicious Salad through "agriculture with integrity" - the agriculture I always dreamed of - highly nutritious bioavailable alkalinising supergreens from a designed ecosystem - from our farm - a tool to help us review the foundation of whats on our plate - this is really exciting - come see!

I will happily welcome those genuinely interested so let me know your dates and I will reserve you a room with a view or a more private little caravan with the utmost pleasure!

Safe journeying to all - Zoe

We are a family that switched lifestyle a year ago. We try to be as self-sufficient as possible in terms of food and energy according the permaculture principle. We have a field we want to transform in to a edible forest garden. We have a few chickens,ducks and are planning to have a few sheep. In the meantime we are renovating the house and homeschooling our 3 kids. We also rent a tent in our garden. Lucie is full-time busy with a project of transforming pillow covers and bed sheets into T-shirts and handbags. We search people that can help with the kids, sewing, gardening, renovating the house and many other works.
We speak french, english, dutch and a bit of spanish.

This beautiful, 2.5 hectare garden, set in the heart of Haute-Normandie Pays de Caux near the English Channel and whose light inspired the Impressionist movement, is called the Jardin d'art et d'essais and which can be loosely translated as an Arthouse garden.

This is not a run of the mill Help X destination. There is a real opportunity to learn and have a totally unique experience while staying in the 17th century Priory in the centre of the garden. Cécile Maitrot, the gardening artist or artistic gardener (she conforms to both), welcomes you to join her in this artistic gardening adventure.

Previous experience of gardening and some basic French are welcome but not essential as Cecile can get by in English, Spanish and German and will teach you all you need to know; the work, of course, changes with the seasons and can be a variety of brute force and delicate sensitivity but never forgetting that this is an artistic adventure and is open to the public.

This is a family run campsite in the village of St Martin des Besaces, Calvados, offering camping and caravaning. Perfectly situated for exploring the undulating picturesque countryside, tasting renowned cheeses, sampling sparkling cider and of course, the famous Calvados.

Once a working farmstead, the grounds (14 acres) have been re-designed with 50 large individually marked pitches, hedges, apple trees and borders overlooking lush green fields. The farmhouse, which has been tastefully renovated, retains its country charm with pleasant views.

We are open all year with many projects to finish and new ones to start.

Do you have a caravan or Motorhome and willing to work a few hours a week for exchange for free pitch, electric and wifi.
We also have our own very clean caravan placed on one of our great pitches with electric hook-up and wifi, that can be used for exchange of help.

Building maintenance or garden skills/landscaping would be a great help.

I’m 55 and live in Normandy, in a seaside town called Cabourg, 15 min walk from the beach. I work at home, I’m really busy and not in a great shape just right now.

So, I’m looking for someone who can help me with the everyday housekeeping (emptying the dishwasher, dealing with the laundry, ironing, hoovering, shopping, preparing meals.) some gardening. (3-4hrs a day - 5 days per week) but I’m quiet flexible. I’m an easy going person.

I can offer a bedroom with double bed, so it’s ok for one or two persons. Good food. You will have wifi access. 2 bikes are available too.

I speak English, if you need to practise or improve your French, it will be a pleasure to help you.

Looking forward to meeting you.
Marilyne

Hi there, we are a belgian couple (Kim, 35 and Oliver, 46) who started a sustainable living project 7 years ago. We also have a lovely, bright and playful daughter of 7: Lila !

We have a big garden consisting of an old cider orchard, a foresty bit next to the brook where the donkeys love to wander, a big (wild) permaculture veggie patch where unfortunately the chickens love to sneek in and lots of little corners. Besides the garden we have the main building which is the house as well as a big barn/stable, chicken coop, and two other little shacks, with even so many ideas to make out of them! So if you're interested in ecologically living, building and spending some time in the beautiful countryside of the bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel, don't hesitate to contact us!


Thanks to Robyn (UK), Suzu (China), Amandine (France), Albi (Germany), Jade (Taiwan), Theo and Marion (Canada), Thomas (Netherlands), Jo (Germany), Flavien (France), Tegan and Daniel (New-Zealand), Jovel (Israel),... more inside
