Located near Evian, north of the French Alps, we live in a peaceful village, ten minutes drive from a ski resort, which offers many hiking tours.
I am renovating the farm. There is a lot of things to do and need a hand for: painting, cleaning, gardening, digging, concrete laying chopping wood, building, moving ....usually 4 hours during the working days.
If you like an easy going live, in a rural area you will be close to nature. You will have your own accommodation. We share the meals after working together, food will be provided and you will be free to cook for your own for the other meals, and enjoy all your spare time to discover our mountains,
Bikes, internet access.
2 weeks stay is a minimum, we hope longer if the feeling is good.
Be sure you have a full travel insurance, just in case.

Hi ! (Francais jettez un oeil plus bas merci :) )

I got the chance to give life again to a little piece of paradise at La Bridoire, in Savoie. The land, surrounded by the forest, was used to raise goats and I’m turning it now into an organic farm (only veggies).
There are a lot of nice hikes to do around the place. I’m also living in Chambery, which is close to mountains and a few lakes to spend our days off :)
I can host a person or a couple in a comfortable camper located right into a little chill zone, under the threes and at only a few steps of the cabin.
The cabin is the place where I live during the week and that I share with everyone with pleasure. There is all we need inside to make a fire, to take a shower, to cook delicious meals, to relax… An ideal place to share and enjoy a sweet evening after a working day :)

I’ll ask you to work 6 hrs per day from Monday to Thursday. The farm is really new and everything needs to be done. A good motivation is required but the ... more inside

I can host in May,no problem with covid 19, totally independent studio ,help for outdoor work.
I am a retired and energetic lady, living in a bucolic and old house recently renovated, overlooking a stream , situated in a natural conservation area of forested Monts du Lyonnais.
I worked as horse riding instructor and scuba diving instructor. I like discovering new countries or simply enjoying nature by camping, hiking, kayaking (lately in wonderful Greenland) or cycling
I did a lot of work by myself on this property both in masonry and for the land. Recently a Canadian volunteer taught me the organic permaculture vegetable garden. Currently even if this vegetable garden is small, I can still transmit my knowledge.
I like working with Helpers, talking about what to do or my knowledge of plants (medicinal and culinary) or yoga, and of course about your country, your experiences during your trip, improve language learning, music, exchange culinary specialties and all topics ... more inside

We live in a chalet in the French Alps (1200m high).
Accomodation is at ground level of the home. You have your private room. You need to share bathroom with other helpers.

I`m a botanist, involved in citizen transition and sustainable development since 1991. My husband is a butcher.
We have a dog and no child and I need help in getting rid of wild rosetrees and woodwork at the helpers room.
If it rains we may be preparing jam or wild plants cosmetics.
I really need help in writing presentations, re-newing the website and work on videos. I'm a beginner!
I know nothing about the reopening of the borders at the moment...
Cheers, Dominique

We are retired teachers. We inherited a large family property with several buildings and a large field. We are nature lovers and we decided to create a park (arboretum) and we take care of it. We also produce organical vegetables and fruits, but we do not make breedings. We are not vegetarians, but we are very careful about the quality of our supplies : we are members of an AMAP, "voisins de panier" to buy local organic food to complete our production.
Paul is also involved in a workshop of wood and a blog on the internet. Pascaline is interested in writing. We both play music and we work together a lot in the park.
The house is large and well appointed and the last few years we do hosting also couchsurfers and bewelcomers. We really appreciate getting to know all kinds of people. We offer a real exchange : we helped those who wanted to learn French according to our abilities...
The house, garden, park, carpentry, all this gives us a lot of work. Not being very young, we seek h... more inside

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - SPRING/SUMMER 2020

Looking for fit and motivated helpers as we are planning to build a 700m long fence for our lamas and goats ! Cutting and chopping wooden poles, hammering them in a rocky ground and attching a 1.50m high fence... sounds exciting!

Plus if you have some skills in gardening, if you are interested in permacultural experiments, if you feel like doing some gardening and taking care of our animals, we would love to host some enthusiastic HelpXers to take care of our beautiful terraced garden!!

As we have 2 kids and some work to do, we won't be 100% available to take time with you, so we would prefer rather independent couples or pairs, with a good sense of autonomy... Babysitting skills most welcome :)

**MOUNTAIN CHALET IN LA PLAGNE, FRENCH ALPS - MARCH to DECEMBER - 1 WEEK MINIMUM STAY** Want to see the French Alps? We're looking for a friendly couple, individual travellers or friends, to help with gardening, cleaning, painting and dog sitting in our lovely mountain chalet near Bourg Saint Maurice in the French Alps.

PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE GETTING IN TOUCH.

We run a lovely mountain B&B in a beautiful part of the Alps above AIME, in the mountain resort of La Plagne Montalbert. We need help with cleaning, dog sitting, and gardening.
