Dear Helpers,

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette and Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Please, in order to get an appropriate answer, read the entire description and when you contact us please answer to all the questions we ask at the end.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Ten years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BnB with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sheep,... more inside

Hello to you, and welcome to our HelpX info page. We hope you will find our page interesting, informative, and most of all, appealing to you.

Kath and I are down-to-earth Yorkshire ex-pats who would want to make you feel welcome, at home, & relaxed at our Belle Maison, which is about 170 years old. We live in the commune of St Pardoux, Deux-Sevres, in a very small and very quiet hamlet of just 3 families. St Pardoux is 8 km away from the historical town of Parthenay. Poitiers is an hour's drive away, with Tours, La Rochelle and Nantes being about 90/120 minutes away.

In early spring 2020, help is needed to clean and tidy up a couple of overgrown hedges, and general tidying of the garden for summer. Power tools (chain saw and hedge trimmers) will be used, so we would need helpers with some experience. We will be doing our fair share of the work, so you will not be on your own.

Small garden design. We will be planting two narrow (1 metre wide x 6 metres long) flower/plant ... more inside

Hello,

We live in the beautiful Charante region and are looking for help with decorating and gardening. Happy to host a couple and individuals. We'd love help with jobs like winter wood organisation, linseeding oak floors and staircase, window cleaning, help in the garden etc.

In return we offer a bedroom in the chateau with 3 meals, we enjoy our food and believe its an important pleasure of every day. We like to work on the basis that you help for one full day then have a day off, this way you get a good days exploring in, but if you'd like to just relax around the house you are welcome to do that. Although, we are flexible and so if you'd like to help for 4-5 hours a day, that's fine too. Due to the location it would be more convenient if you had your own transport, we are near plenty of villages and towns but to get to them is easier by car.

The area has lots to offer and the coast is about an hour's drive away, although the river is at the bottom of the garden and lov... more inside

We are a couple living in the countryside between Nantes (110km away) and Poitiers (90km).
I am working as a project manager developing organics cosmetics and my husband is a teacher.
Beginning of 2019, we bought an house with a lovely garden (5000 square meters). We love gardening and we have a vegetable garden. We also have a cat and four chicken. So you can have fresh eggs for the breakfast :)

Help exchange is being offered.
We are looking for people interested in plant cultivation. And help with the garden is welcome.
We also want to build ecological dry toilets.
We offered 2 or 3 hours per day of help with the garden in exchange of free accommodation and lunch/dinner with us.

When I was younger, I used HelpX as and helper, when I was travelling around New Zealand and I really enjoyed this experience. I would be glad to use it now as an Host and welcome people in our house.
