Hello - welcome to our site!

We 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 anytime over the year. 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 have experience working be... more inside

Hello, we are looking for 1 helper for 2 weeks or longer, obviously when the Coronavirus has left Europe. We are hoping around MID JUNE. 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 Sat... more inside

Due to the lockdown restrictions at present in France we are unable to host any helpers until the situation changes. We hope to host you then. Stay safe.
Eventually ,There will be garden work, weeding flower and veg beds. There are chickens and sheep to look after to feed. At this season wood has to be carried into the house for the log burner.
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.

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 25 mois, il nous laisse (un peu) plus de temps pour continuer de façonner ce bel endroit.

Nous vivons avec chiens, chats, 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.
Nous demandons 5 h d'aide par jour.
Pendant votre temps libre, nous mettons à votre disposition, vélos, canoë, jeux de sociétés.

Si vous aimez jardiner, faire des conserves, désherber, papoter, vous promen... more inside

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
