Hello and welcome to our site!

A group of friends originally purchased this beautiful château in the Loire Valley in 2013 and with HelpX like yourself, we worked tirelessly to renovate it, taking it from its dilapidated state to the current splendour of a modern 21st century castle. There are still a couple of spaces to renovate, as well as finishing touches all around the château, so we get excited if you have trades skills to offer.

We have availability for you throughout the year and are keen to book interested people, like yourself, in for longer periods over the summer. We ask a minimum stay of two weeks with us, but longer periods are also a bonus.

We love positive enthusiastic people who enjoy all that life offers and can share that energy with those around them.

If you like working in the garden or have general handyman skills...we would love to hear from you. We would also love a stonemason to join us, as we have a few stone walls to repair. And if you hav... more inside

We are american, from San Francisco and New Orleans, living in France for over 10 years. We have an old farm property in the Loire Valley, 10 minutes from Chinon, with a main house and two renovated barns. The larger barn is a vacation rental, and the smaller barn is mixed use, rental or friends, workers, etc. We need help with some small projects, with landscaping, and in the vegetable garden. We have a large veggie garden, many fruit and nut trees as well.

Before the season starts in April there is much work to be done cleaning up, tending to the garden, etc. Same at the end of the season. In mid-summer, there`s weeding and landscaping to keep up with, when the smaller barn is not otherwise occupied.

DURING WINTER WE REALLY NEED help in marketing our vacation rental, since the sites we have used for years have switched their format to compete with AirBnb. Anyone who knows WORDPRESS software is a plus. We need help with marketing on social media, our own website, et... more inside

La Bastille était il y a longtemps la ferme du château de notre village. Nous avons pris possession des lieux en avril 2017.
Depuis, nous aménageons, taillons, rénovons, plantons, arrosons, construisons, réparons, récoltons, observons...

Entre mon installation en maraîchage bio en juillet 2017 et la naissance de notre petit Pierrot en novembre suivant, nous n'avons pas trouvé le temps de nous ennuyer.
Maintenant notre bout de chou à 19 mois, il nous laisse (un peu) plus de temps pour continuer de façonner ce bel endroit.

Nous vivons avec chiens, chats, poules, canards, oies et brebis.

Nous ne parlons que le français.
L'hébergement est en caravane 4 places. Nous souhaitons accueillir 2 personnes au maximum à la fois.
Nous mangeons de la viande mais pas à chaque repas.
Il est important pour nous d'avoir des moments conviviaux autant que de moments en famille c'est pourquoi vous devez être autonome pour certains repas et certains moments de la journée.

Hello, we are looking for 1 helper for 2 weeks or more starting in Spring of 2020. We would like help inside and outside and with plenty of gardening and watering. Outdoor work includes setting up the garden, cutting and trimming of trees and mowing the lawn. I am doing stone mason work which includes repairing a 700 yr old stone wall in the Roman Style. Also the helper must be able to lift and haul fireplace wood and ( ideally) know the use of a chain saw but not necessary. All of this work we do together. Further work includes simple window washing, exterior window and door painting. We are chefs from New York City so we offer great food and comfortable accommodation though we do not do cooking classes. In the summer time when weather permits, you have a deluxe caravan for your home. This helper or helpers must be very neat and punctual for work and not have special dietary requirements. We work Tuesday through Saturday with Sun and Mon off. (these days you can switc... more inside

Hello to you traveler,
My husband (Antoine) and I (Thelma) traveled for a year in New Zealand. There, we made HelpX as guests. This allowed us to meet beautiful people and really discover the local culture. So we decided, when we came back, to become hosts in France.
We live in the countryside of Nantes / Rennes in a house with a small garden. My husband works in a sawmill and I work in a factory that makes madeleines. We have two hens and a cat with 3 kittens. We have a little vegetable garden. I am passionated about creations, I craft jewels, catch dreams and sew pockets.
We want to make you discovering the local culture of our region and the French culture.
We are ready to make you visit in the district (as far as possible because I can work at night), to lodge and to feed you (morning and evening) in exchange for a few hours of work per day. We will need help in the tasks of the house and in the garden.
We can accommodate to 2 people but we only have one double bed, you wou... more inside

There wll be garden work, weeding flower and veg beds. At this season there will be stacking and splitting wood with a pneumatic woodsplitter, easy but lifting logs onto it.
Adaptability and common sense are invaluable working in our situation.
We usually speak English in the house so it could be useful for those who wish to improve their English as well as their French.
Some Helpx have completed or started studies while here. Some have painted or explored the walkways on foot or with the bikes.
There are always individual garden projects. Previous helpers tamed a bamboo jungle,cleared an overgrown bog and built pathways. Others learnt to bottle fruit and make jams,pickles and chutneys.
We always have work with the animals. Feeding, looking after and cleaning out the chickens, sheep and lambs.
Normally helpers are in the main house. Their room has its own bathroom and facilities for personal tea/coffee making.

Hi,
We are looking for 1 or 2 people (partners accepted) to maintain our property.
We are located in "Pont-Légé" (Vendée Area), a small village not far from the world famous Parc "Le Puy du Fou" (Find out more : https://www.puydufou.com/en).

We need some help for cleaning weeds, feeding our animals (2 female goats and 1 pony) and also for taking care of our mobile home.

We'll give you food and shelter (mobile home) on the property and if you do the job properly, we will give you a ride around the area ;)
No matter where you from or who you are, we are enough open-minded to let you join the adventure.

We hope to welcome you on the beginning of March 2020 (for couple of months, let us know how long you plan to stay).

Cheers

After volunteering in various farms in the world, I managed to convince my father to accept hosting volunteers too and I`m really happy to start that new experience in our property. The farm is only 1hectare, sufficient for a family to grow veggies and care few animals for our own consumption. It`s about 10years that we didn`t do much on buildings and the priority will be renovate walls and roofs. I live in a mobile-home in the middle of the farm with dry toilet and solar shower but we provide private room in the house for volunteers. We are actually renovating the house, so It's "work in progress" inside, there is still a bathroom with hot water, but also a lot of dust :)
I`ll be assisting volunteers during week days, that will be also during the week that you'll have free time, as on weekends, my father is here to work with us. He doesn`t speak english. Hopefully you`ll speak some basics french to communicate with him.
We share meals and life in general in familial athmosphere.... more inside
