Hello ! My partner and I used to travel a lot and we miss "traveller stories" We have two beautiful little girls now who are 4 and 5 years old. We have lived in Arcachon for 4years(and we're trying not to miss travelling too much as we have a happy life here by the beach). We are looking for help around the house as our flat has had some renovation changes and between things never having been properly unpacked and overgrowing wardrobes - I need to do some carboot sales! The girls go to a bilingual school from 8.30 to 4.30 so you will have free time during the day to sightsee or make the most of the beaches. We mainly need help for the evenings and playing - any everyday household jobs are welcomed with open arms too!!! We love cooking, and sharing homemade cooking traditions : Im veggy, Yass is a big meat eater (except for pork) and the girls like cooking cakes and cocktails ! We are very simple down to earthy people, we enjoy walks, beachdays, fundays but also chilling in the eveni... more inside

Years ago I was a marketing student in Spain. Depressed and extremely unconfident about myself, an amazing and horrifying experience took place in my life, taking away from me everything. No more hope, no more dreams, no more sense, no more life.

And then, Life came in. With all its Magic, with all its Love.

I quit my studies, came to France, and travelled for some time around Europe and Asia, following an inner force that guided me towards a more human and nature loving existence. People, permaculture, biointensive gardening, yoga, meditation, healthy food, music, all came to me with such an obvious and important place in what started to become a happy, simple, rich and meaningful path.


The main goal of the project is to encourage and nourish positive change through the values of ecological awareness, mindfulness, individual and collective effort, creativity, joy and optimism, in a place where Human and Nature can flourish, as these are the sources of the Meaning, th... more inside

Ross and I (two English speaking Canadians) have been taking care of an elderly couple with Alzheimers, and now they have passed away. We are busy building our dream of a bike lodge here in South West France. I am a visual artist and specialize in monumental welded steel sculpture. Ross is an amazing musician and is very eclectic, and is also doing most of the construction renovation work on his own! He needs help!
The property we live on is big and contains 36 fruit trees, a small forest that was recently thinned out. The fruit trees are all organic and need pruning, and picking of fruit in the right season.
We are building a super exciting bike lodge and need people with strong hands and skills! We need help with the renovation with work such as tiling, painting, building shelves, and waterproofing. Soon a new sewage link will be put in and there will be landscaping work to be accomplished as well. There is tons of detail work to do indoors if it rains, and many things to do ou... more inside

Hello travellers! I've bought an amazing house in a lovely old village. I need people who have experience construction, electrical wiring and plumbing for building a wall, making a couple of doorways and fitting doors there, putting in extra power points, and plastering (rough plastering only). If there's anyone who can do any of these things I'd be glad to hear from you. And I also need help with housework (building works make dust!), some gardening, maintenance, decoration, and also video, photography, and the internet. So there are lots of possibilities! You will have your own bedroom and all meals. There are beautiful views, a beautiful village, towns nearby, and good conversation. There are six bicycles here, and I can give lifts if people want to go to a nearby town and don't want to cycle. If anyone wants to improve their English, I used to be a TEFL teacher and can help. And there are two Bengal cats here, full of character! I don't smoke, but smokers can do so outside if t... more inside

Welcome to a piece of land about life in nature, which is slow, simple, pretty to watch.

We are Kevin (30, from Belgium) and Alice (30, from France) currently living on about 2 hectares of wild nature. Alice is currently working 4 days per week in an association which is dealing against social isolation in "Oloron sainte-marie". In parallel, she is studying naturopathy in Pau. Kevin is currently experimenting on the land, taking care of sheeps, hens and vegetables.

Here there are a yurt, a wood hut, a geodesic greenhouse, a vegetable garden. Also fruit trees, a ruin full of life, phyto-purification (pools to clean used water), solar panels and rainwater tanks, cats, sheeps, hens. There are also a large range of wild animals passing by, like frogs, owls, roe deer, squirrels, ...
