We are at the very early stages of this permaculture project, and our vision is still taking shape.

Inspired by the Healing Field at Glastonbury Festival, I have long wanted to create a permanent equivalent where people can come for healing, and therapists can work in a naturally beautiful place.
I have also wanted to live in France since my 11th birthday, and it felt natural to me to look here for the right piece of land, which eventually came along after 9 years' searching. I bought the land and buildings in 2012, and have gradually developed it so that it is more habitable than before, although there is still plenty to do. Life took many twists and turns in the meantime, and I moved here this May 2019 with my beloved, Aurore.

'en temps voulu' ('all in good time') is a place of beauty, magic and healing, with minimum negative impact and maximum positive influence on our environment.
We envision a verdant, colourful, beautiful, multi-sensory garden and grounds here in Bouc... more inside

Immerse yourself in rural France... we are off the beaten track in the southern Loire Valley, near the historic town of Ligueil. Our 15th century house is at the heart of a very small medieval village. We have a local store with a bar, but that`s it! Bigger shops and restaurants can be found in Loches (about 20 mins away by car). From Paris the nearest mainline railway station is in Tours. There is also an international Airport at Tours (serviced by RyanAir). The bus which will deliver you to our village leaves from the centre of Tours and takes an hour to get here.

We are not wealthy people, just very fortunate to find such a special place to live. And we are committed to ensuring this ancient building is in good repair so it lasts another 600 years. We mostly do the work ourselves, and we run a part-time `bed and breakfast` business to help pay the bills (open from May to October). Like all old buildings there is always something to be done, so we could do with some assistance... more inside

GUARDIEN ANGELS NEEDED FOR SMALL EQUINE RESCUE SANCTUARY IN CENTRAL FRANCE.

WONDERFUL LONG STAY OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE LA BELLE VIE EN FRANCE FOR THREE MONTHS OR MORE.

** PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU ARE A COUPLE AND HAVE EXPERIENCE HANDLING HORSES **

Bonjour everyone,

We run a small non profit registered charity. A peaceful haven for neglected, abandoned equines situated in the beautiful Brenne natural park in central France. We currently have 26 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys all now living the good life on 18ha. The majority are old and cannot be re-homed and will live out their lives here, but we do have some youngsters too. Despite the neglect many have suffered, they are all super friendly and just love being fussed over. Everyone lives out all year round in either twos or small groups and we make sure they are all pampered and happy. We also have ducks, chickens and three rescue pigs. This is animal paradise.

We would love for a horsey couple, young or acti... more inside

HI everybody,

Our family doesn't increase but our children grows up and claime for their own private room. So it's time to plan a new step of work and we hope and expect new volunteers to help us.
Next months, I have decided to have a break in my teaching job, middle life crisis, so this time will be a great opportunity to invest this new self building project.
In a first time, a wood structure will be get up, so it could be the program if you are travelling around in France.

We would like to receive 1 or 2 people with enthusiasm and energy who looks for opportunities to learn about technics of construction for 5 hours of daily work.
Volunteers will stay in a wood trailer with wireless broad connection to Internet. Meals cooked with organic food are taken together.

Our house is located close to castles of Loire, on the famous vineyard of Chinon. The environment is very quiet without being isolated (5 min by bicycle from village with bars and shops). What's more? We ha... more inside

We have moved from Turkey where we hosted 70 HelpXs over 5 years. All of the reviews below prior to 2017 are with reference to that listing. We aim to continue our animal rescue and organic permaculture here in France.

We have a copse to restore and gardens to establish so there is plenty to keep us occupied. A lot of hedgerow maintenance.
We are a rescue Centre for donkeys and so there are always on going projects.

We would require our helpers to have a good sense of humour and common sense and to be adaptable as life here is less than predictable. We never know what the day will throw at us and so are wary of making too many plans!

We would also require and trust helpers to keep their more than adequate accommodation clean and tidy and leave it as they found it and respect our home. We are VERY particular about this as we have been left with appalling conditions to clean up on a number of occasions.

We would like help for 6 hours a day for 5 days then 2 days off. We... more inside

I am looking for someone to help with a variety of our daily activities.In breif we have gites, which you can see on our web site. From time to time we have a large group staying, otherwise it is normally a couple or a small family. I have a cleaner but would like help to prepare the house before the client's arrival. There are many outside jobs to attend to, such as lawn mowing, some gardening, strimming, sweeping etc. Then we have 3 large dogs that I walk twice daily and 4 horses (remaining from a breeding farm that I was running). So lots to do if you are an active positive person! You do not have to work all day. I can provide lunch some days and French lessons if that interests you. Minimum stay one to two months.
