Like a "farmhouse museum" : 61 helpers from 16 countries appeared in 5 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 400 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 ;-)

2 cats, co-responsibility for 70 chicken in the neighbourhood

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

We are a Spanish family installed in French Pyrenees, we bought this farm in 2017. We live 2 adults with our 6 years old son, a dog, a cat, three chickens and five ducks.

I am a puppeteer but at this moment I renovate the house and work in the garden. I have training as a carpenter, and experience in ecoconstruction, I spent some years volunteering in a permaculture project.

We are looking for a person who can help us with the carpentry and the garden, someone who is well surrounded by nature and eager to learn, we value experience and long stay.

The different projects for the near future are: Make apple juice, the construction of an outdoor dry toilet, reinforce some points of the fence, plant fruit trees for the good functioning of phytodepuration, cut some trees. But the most urgent are the interior works, such as finishing the wooden walls, to continue the clay plasters. And the exterior works will be done as time permits, and we have the necessary materials and tools.... more inside

Our project, which is already well underway, is the renovation of the former Commandery of the order of the Templars and Maltese Knights and its outhouses, establishing a small size spice and herbs farm according to organic standards.
We are a well-travelled, Anglo/French retired couple (young in spirit and very active) living in a rural area just south of Brittanny and 10kms from the coast and the river Loire, after a life of travel, working and sailing in the Indian and the Pacific oceans.
We receive many helpers wanting to improve their French and provide our help to achieve their objective. We have a dog and use a couple of sheep from neighbours to help keep the grass under control in the spring.
We are located close to some lovely beaches and only a 30 minute drive to cross the Loire and visit South Britanny and 43 km West of Nantes.
Ideally we would like helpers to stay a couple of weeks to 4 weeks depending on how it works out for both parties. Work is tending to plant... more inside
