Like a "farmhouse museum" : Over 60 helpers from all continents and 17 countries appeared in 6 years to pay a one-week-visit to this most charming and romantic half timber compound from 1722.
The antik real wood furniture in all rooms will give you the impression to take part in a time voyage.
Almost 300 years old the compound is quietly situated at the calm edge of a hamlet of some 300 souls.
Main building completely restorated in traditional style, however, technically renovated. Modern but romantic kitchen with additional wood stove. Significantly reduced consumption of fossil resources by a bio mass based central heating system (pellets) and a seldomly used car. No TV ;-)

We are bringing back to life a 500 year old French house in the foothills of the mountains that has suffered more than 50 years of neglect. It has a fertile garden that is totally, naturally organic but needs clearing and planting with our choice of vegetation rather than what chooses to grow there itself (in great profusion).

The sort of jobs that we would like help with include food preservation, cleaning, re-organising, repairing, rebuilding, decorating in the house, clearing, landscaping, planting, weeding, power and other tool maintenance and repair, etc.

We are looking for people who share our desire to have a simple sustainable lifestyle that is stress free and very much aligned with the principles of nature. We like to meditate, practise yoga, we are vegetarian, we do not smoke or drink alcohol, and we prefer wherever possible to use herbs and natural healing methods over allopathic medicine.

We aim to enjoy working with you in all these exciting projects. During t... more inside

Hello, we are looking for 1 person for 1-2 weeks starting after the 18th of April and into the summer and autumn. (excluding 18 May - 3 June as we have a helper). We would like help in the spring time, inside and outside with garden preparation.

*WE NOW HAVE ALL THE HELP WE NEED FOR THIS YEAR - THANK YOU*

This year (2019) we are able to host in APRIL/MAY/JUNE only. Couples are especially welcome, as are mature people. You don't need any particular skills or experience (though in truth, plumbers or electricians are always very welcome!) - but more important is a willingness to muck in and be cheerful!

We are an English couple who gave up teaching in order to run a farmhouse rental business in rural South-West France. We now want to enhance the "French countryside experience" we offer to our clients and so are looking for all kinds of help - extending our organic vegetable garden, beginning to cultivate our meadows, managing our woodland and gardens and possibly even planting a small vineyard.

There is also work still to be done on our buildings, so if the weather is not good enough for gardening, your skills with a paintbrush might get called into play.

We are both very outgoing and sociable, so there are al... more inside

Midi-Pyrenees, south of France - from mid March 2019 onwards

We are an English couple who have lived in France for 13 years. We live in a partly renovated an old stone cottage in the middle of rolling vineyards in historic Gascony, in the sunny Midi-Pyrenees with our 9+ rescue dogs, chickens and ducks.

We are a high energy household and seek like minded volunteers to help us in our busy lives. Everyday tasks include looking after the dogs -walking, grooming, feeding, kennel cleaning & picking up poo - and the hens and ducks - feeding, cleaning, egg collection etc.

Throughout the year, we progress our house renovation and current projects include pointing walls, plastering / dry lining, painting & decorating, repainting existing kitchen units and installing, making shutters, installing bathrooms, plumbing and general electrics. So anyone with experience in building projects and general DIY (masonry, carpentry, electrics etc) is always welcome!

We are 30km away from Bordeaux, a town classified by UNESCO. All very beautiful! The ocean is 70 km from here. We love to meet new people!
