# Helpers welcome from september 29th! #

We are living in a former 18th century farmhouse in the countryside 40 minutes by train north of Strasburg, 50 min. to Karlsruhe or Baden-Baden in Germany. The house is surrounded by a large garden in a picturesque alsatian village below the Vogesian mountains. We have reformed it, using traditionnal and organic material. We would appreciate help - 4hours/day - in the garden (mostly organic) i.e. mowing the grass, trimming the hedges, picking the fruit, helping tending the vegetable and flower garden etc, and some light maintenance work in- and outside the house, like painting shutters, according to the season. We ourselves travelled a lot around the world for many years; Now, Klaus enjoys gardening and music - there is a piano in the house; Valerie likes cooking, especially using the garden ressources, and all kind of needlework. We can communicate in french, german, english, italian and japanese. The next railway station, Soultz-sous-For... more inside

La Bastille était il y a longtemps la ferme du château de notre village. Nous avons pris possession des lieux en avril 2017.
Depuis, nous aménageons, taillons, rénovons, plantons, arrosons, construisons, réparons, récoltons, observons...

Entre mon installation en maraîchage bio en juillet 2017 et la naissance de notre petit Pierrot en novembre suivant, nous n'avons pas trouvé le temps de nous ennuyer.
Maintenant notre bout de chou à 19 mois, il nous laisse (un peu) plus de temps pour continuer de façonner ce bel endroit.

Nous vivons avec chiens, chats, poules, canards, oies et brebis.

Nous ne parlons que le français.
L'hébergement est en caravane 4 places. Nous souhaitons accueillir 2 personnes au maximum à la fois.
Nous mangeons de la viande mais pas à chaque repas.
Il est important pour nous d'avoir des moments conviviaux autant que de moments en famille c'est pourquoi vous devez être autonome pour certains repas et certains moments de la journée.
Nous demandons ... more inside

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,

Looking for help November 2019.

We live in the beautiful Charante region and are looking for help with decorating, if you have some experience then great. If you are a couple and would both like to decorate then that would be helpful otherwise there's lots of other jobs like winter wood organisation, linseeding oak floors, help in the garden etc.

In return we offer a bedroom in the chateau with 3 meals a day, 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 that's fine too. We are flexible. 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 lo... more inside
