WHO WE ARE

We are a small community and plenty of aspects are still in an early stage. After the individual members have travelled for many years in different ways and took part in different projects and collectivs, we settled down here in the Summer of 2018. We have a lot of space and ideas, but no finished plan concerning extending the infrastructure and the communal life. Many different things are developing here.
We are not a commercial undertaking.

There are four adults and a three-year-old living here permanently. Two members of our community live here part-time. Also living with us are two horses, a small herd of goats, a handfull of chickens and a pond full of carps.

Though inmidst of a country idyll, we wish to reason intensively about political issues. We strive to respectfully and mindfully deal with all people. We're not perfect, and you also don't need to be. We want to continue learning, from you, with you. This basic attitude to us means amongst other aspect... more inside

Hello! We, Gregor an Marianne, are a swiss couple (young aged "around sixties") living here in this wild-romantic area of France on the "plâteau des mille étangs". We keep horses, cats and a dog.
We need somebody who loves animals, knows or wants to learn about horses (occasion to ride). There is also work with wood and green space, vegetable and flower garden etc. Actually we should repair fences. Sometimes there is some help needed in the kitchen. We like to cook with fresh ingredients of the market.
Gregor has lots of technical skills and is interested for biking. And me, Marianne, I'm interested in nature therapy, literature, philosophy and photography. Please ask us, if you want to know more about us and this helperplace. But sorry, it is not possible to bring your dog with you.

Hallo! Wir, Marianne und Gregor, wir freuen uns immer wieder über Mithilfe bei allen anfallenden Arbeiten im Stall mit den Pferden, im Garten und der Umgebung. Wir leben mit unseren Pferden, ein... more inside

I should be very happy to have a helper from 26th november until shortly before christmas or even from 29th october until 14th november. What work has to be done? Well, first of all the ducks and geese need food and they like to have their place cleaned. Most of autumn work has been finished, but there may still be a hut that has to be cleaned. If the weather is agreeable, a look into the vegetable plot would not harm. There are still leaves to be swept together, and if the weather is too bad or if the outside work is finished, there is still some renovation to be done. The wood of our miellerie has worked and has come apart in places and so it has to be redone. And the renovations of the baking house are not quite finished. Then the entrance has to be done up nicely. But don't worry, we just do one thing after the other.

My house is right out in the country, 375km south of Paris, 150km north of Lyon. The nearest small town with a super market is 12 km away, though there is a s... more inside

Update may 2019 :looking for Helpers immediately for house sitting and art project with refugees. Prefer longer stay thank you for getting in touch.



Hello and welcome to our site. Our house is a bed and breakfast so that means we are around pretty much through out the year. We have three areas of interest which i will tabulate below. What we offer in return is lodge and food. We can also offer lesson in English and Germany languages. And we offer our experience in Art and Carpentry production.

Nancy and Tass live in a small town called Lure in the east of France. Our house was built in 1787, yes, that`s right, that long ago! It is still in good shape but can also be better with a bit of renovation and that is one of the
areas we need people that have the know how to come and stay with us. The house is part of the history of Lure and we have since established an association called culture and creativity. The house it self is artistic in every way.

We are a small organic and educational farm with 50 goats, 13 donkeys a bunch of chickens and peacocks. We make our own goat cheese and rent the donkeys for trips in the "Plateau des mille etangs". We try to set up a big vegetable garden with ancient races. Our place name comes from the old water mill on our site (in function for making apple juice in autumn) which we keep in mind of everybody with expositions and concerts. We are regularly visited by schools and groups of handicapped or elderly people.
We have also a small campsite and 2 guestrooms.

Hello!

We are a 4 members family, in a nice house with garden and plenty of animals. We are the happy owners of 4 dogs, 3 cats, 5 rats, 1 parrot, 1 parakeet, 4 goats and many chickens,ducks and pigeons.
The house is located in Salins les Bains, a small village in the east of France. The city is UNESCO classified, it's a great spot for tourism.

This summer my boyfriend and his two daughters will be in vacation for 1 week, from mid July . So I'll be alone to deal with the big garden and all animals at the busiest moment of the year at my job. That's why I offer to share the house with somebody that would be happy to help me a bit. Several rooms and a bathroom will be available, although a free access to the kitchen. There would be only few hours of work per day so you would be free long time to visit the area.

I'm used to couchsurfing for many years, I travelled a lot those last years, and still happy to meet people from all over the world. Of course french people are also w... more inside
