Hi!
We are a young couple (Mathieu is French and sophie is English) with a baby (1.5 years) who Are renovating a house in a beach town. The work can involve any of the following: up cycling furniture, painting and decorating, gardening, plumbing would be amazing, cleaning, sanding, helping out with the ducks and chickens and more...! We will also soon be starting the garage conversion soon so construction/building experience would be great too:)

We are in or twenties (although Mathieu just turned 30 lol!!) and are laid back people who like a good wine (although we’re in no way pros) and love food!

We would expect roughly 4 sometimes 5 hours per day per person, and of course if you'd like days off to explore you can spread this out how you like over the week! We’d also love it if you could help out with cooking occasionally. In exchange for this you have breakfast and dinner and of course a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom etc! (You’re welcome to have lunch too but it’s very basic... more inside

Hello!

Our farm is a community that has a chicken pen, a dozen sheep, a greenhouse, a vegetable garden, some fruit trees and a field that aren't currently cultivated. On that site, we are also welcoming refugees (from November 1st) from the camps of Calais and Grande Synthe, who don't have access to emergency shelters this winter. These two facets of our project co-exist in that the products of the farm are used to feed the community (of a dozen people); we don't sell anything.

The volunteer has the following tasks:
- managing outdoor spaces and production tools
- preparing the fields to be cultivated in the spring
- looking after the chicken pen and the sheep
This is all happening within a community that's motivated for these tasks to be carried out together. You are encouraged to be initiative-driven and to propose experiments on site, especially in terms of raising awareness and working together with people who are welcomed on site.

The refugees welcomed are c... more inside

Hi! I'm Alex, a young man living in the heart of Flanders. A nice place for sightseeing, walking, cycling, or discovering an Estaminet: a traditionnal bar which often serves local dishes. There we can playing old Flemish games, drink different local beers and listening traditional musics.

My home is a thatched cottage with a big garden. I've got 2 minipigs, hives anda little barnyard.

Recently installed, there is a lot of things to do: housekeeping, cooking, sanding, painting,tiling work,gardening (starting a permaculture project, I need help :) ), fencing, building an enclosure for the pigs, building a garden shed, creating a garden lounge, ..



I was a helper when I travelled in Australia and I really enjoyed this experience. I like discovering new people and sharing our lifestyles. And improve my English as well! Or any other language. Tell me how you can help me, I'm sure we'll find something to do .

The chateau was acquired to form the base for a small community focused on developing and supporting a range of new technologies. The site is connected to the Global Change Foundation, an organisation that supports new technology initiatives and other projects designed to assist humanity in moving forward in these challenging times. We have been running a very pleasing 'visiting community' experiment here for several years, getting the site set up and ready, doing repairs and some new facilities - and generally getting used to living and working together. We have met a lot of great HelpX volunteers, and a much has been achieved by them! Oh yes, and we have a reputation for near-gourmet food, so you won't go hungry! AND NOTE: the leaking roof (mentioned in one of our last reviwers comments) has now been fixed (needing 80 new slates!)and so things have dried out.

In exchange for bed and board we are looking for willing people with any combination of skills: be you a good gardener, ... more inside

I'm a mother of two boys of 24 and 26, and I'm living in the heart of a beautiful and peaceful green valley, at about 25km from the Opal Coast. I run a small B&B in our old charming farmhouse, and work also as a music teacher. I lost my husband 4 years ago and my sons are not often at home, so I'd be very happy with a helping hand with the house and the gardens, and with the B&B. I very much enjoy meeting new people, having interesting conversations about all kinds of subjects and do really appreciate the given help. There's a good balance between work and relaxing in a most respectful ambiance. Helpers should know that I'm away from home for my job. If learning French is one of your motivations, I'll be happy to help you to improve your language skills. Only contact by e-mail please.

Annie and I are renovating our house and log chalet, ready for french students studying english. A lot of work has been done but still a long way to go! At the moment we are about to put back together an acquired conservatory.We are looking for help with general building work, nothing specialised, but another strong pair of hands about the place. We are trying to do up our house for free as a challenge to our selves by recycling, reusing, readapting what we have or can swap, barter or source locally.A lot of our food is grown locally, or at this time of year there is an abundant supply of free food in the fields and hedgerows, so lots of home cooking. Don't eat a lot of meat, some fish, but healthy! Accommodation for our helpx will be in the main house or the log chalet. Whoever is brave enough to come to us will be warmly welcomed as part of the family. All food drinks etc., Included, transport when we go on shopping trips etc., evenings out sometimes, or evenings in with books, ga... more inside

Hello helpxers !

My name is Romane. My mum and I live in a small city called Cambin. It is only 30 minutes drive from Lille, 2 hours from Paris ! Train and other transports Esau to access !
We are looking for someone nice and friendly who wants to live in France. I myself was a helpxer in Australia for months and know how it is. We want someone who's ready to help in the house and most importantly : share (let's go out, have conversations etc ... This ain't a hotel!)

We have a cat at home : not sociable at all but WE are ! ;)
We've hosted a japanese girl for 6 months before andit was awesome ! We both an speak english, but I also have some notions of spanish, japanese and korean.

You won't be able to have your own room unfortunately but the living room is big enough : you'll have your own space ! We have Internet.

We would prefer a stay of a minimum one month with a one week "try"!


For more info contact me by email!
