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...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BandB 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 sh... more inside

Hello, my name is Kim. I came from England 12 years ago in Brettes to start a sustainable living project on an old farm.
I was a farm with animals but now, as I'm getting older, I have changed to just vegtables. I still have few pigs and cats. I Grow wide range of vegtables. Have good knowledge on all herbs, my herb garden continues to expand every year.
There is a lot of different work to do beetween the garden (weed, plant, harvest) the house (electricity, destroy some wall build new one, clean) and the animals (feed).
You can expect to live in a lovely spacious bedroom or mobilehome. I speak English.
So if you want to share my ideas and laughs and have a nice time together, don’t hesitate to contact me.

See you soon!

**We still have space for the summer season, do get in touch!

We have bed and breakfast with a little organic garden. This is a place of peace, a little bit in the countryside but as there are always people around you`ll never feel lonely. Philippe looks after the garden while Jeanne-Marie is mostly running the bed and breakfast - making sure everyone has a good stay. We eat all meals together with all guests and friends/family.
I`m experimenting more and more with vegetarian cooking but there is always meat and fish at the table for the people who want it
And Philippe like meat always

There is always something to do, either in the bandb or in the garden. Normally in the morning you help cleaning the (bath)rooms when our guests have left. You can help in the garden, picking fruits and vegetables and learn how to prepare them for a nice, healthy meal. A good opportunity to experience proper French cuisine. French is mostly spoken but we also speak a bit English, so no worri... more inside

I live with my 3 children in a nice little wood house in a big green place. "La fosse du loup" has 3 houses with other people. It is a nice place where there is lot of art or energetic therapies.
I give you a big caravan with a little kitchen, tables and 3 individuals beds. In our house, there is a shower for everyone.I swap this and I need someone to look after my 3 children of 3, 6 and 8 years old, some hours or some evening.
We are actually in a wonderful countryside near Royan, the beach side, in Cozes, 10km of the beach.
Hope to get some news about you.
Naturally,
bénédicte

Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 24, 22, 20, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".You could go to the Puy du Fou, who is 15 minutes from les Herbiers.

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique
