Especially interested in helpers with experience in tree surgery..

Helper opportunities during September, November and December.

We are very willing to host helpers, but on the basis of no more than two persons for a maximum of two weeks during the Summer.

We are a retired English couple, living in Lower Normandy with a pygmy goat, 2 obnoxious geese, Podge the dog and 5 attention seeking cats. We need help with animal care, gardening, renovations and cleaning in exchange for board and lodging. Some heavy outdoor manual work may be involved. Helpers must be prepared to cuddle up with a cat or dog occasionally! We can share with you animal husbandry skills, local culture and history and can help to improve your French or English language. No shopping malls or clubs - you must be prepared for a very simple but peaceful way of living. Suit helpers looking for an experience away from the rat race.

HELPEEEEEEERS!!!!!


After 3 years of nomadic family life on the roads of the world and fifteen experiences as HelpX volunteers in several countries, we will welcome you with great pleasure to share our experiences on autonomy, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life!

Back in our pretty farm dauphinoise nineteenth, we undertook to best grant our life with nature. First of all, we want to establish a self-sufficient and energetically autonomous micro-farm based on ideas, principles and experiments based on the observation of natural mechanisms. Our second goal is to move towards zero waste, to prioritize the upgrading and recycling of materials. Third step of our project: to create, support and encourage synergy in a solidarity and resilient community open to the world. Although we still have a lot to learn, we will be happy to share our experiences with you.

As a volunteer, you integrate our family with all the mutual benevolence that this implies. We provide you ac... more inside

This château was built and rebuilt between 1600 and 1850. The castle was owned by a famous chemist, physicist, botanic and alchemist.
4000sqm castle
1000sqm outbuildings (orangery, horse stables - 4 horses, office shed, gatehouse ...)
Situation: roofs in order, no moisture in basements or walls - only occasionally leaky pipes, so nothing that can not be easily put in order.
Formerly an asylum for lunatics was housed in the castle,
We want to provide a stylish ambience for weddings and overnight guests. We love abandoned châteaus, but they should be habitable.
We do not want a “should look like that" style. We maintain our own style, i.e. we need someone helping us to turn the castle into a magnificent swan - freestanding bathtubs in large rooms with views out French windows into a 26 ha park yet to be cared for.

What we need: Nice people from all over the world, that can do the tasks mentioned above with us - and please as soon as possible!!
What do we offer: everything... more inside

Hi there!
I'm a Belgian, dutch-speaking woman living with my fast-growing puppy in a big modern house close to the town of Perpignan, near the Spanish border and some 10km from the sea. Both my daughters will leave home for studying this september so I can need some company.
There's a spare room to host 1 or 2 people who can help with gardening, some painting and house- and pool maintenance. In exchange of 4 hours of work a day I offer you a room and 3 meals. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome but should help me with the cooking because I'm not used to cook vegetarian/vegan. But I would love to learn some good recipes.
Although I love the contact with people from all over the world, I also like to be on myself. That's why I prefer a short stay of maximum 8 days maximum and you should feel fine by working alone most of the time.
Please don't hesitate to contacte me if you want some more information.
Hope to see you soon!

We will be opening slowly from March and would like to get into the swing of things with some help. We need help for several chores as a b&b, the upkeep of a wonderful property, garden and forest. We ask for flexibility and a stay of at least two weeks. In return and on top of the exchange of food and lodging, you will love the area that offers the real France, a countryside that is pure, rich with history and architecture. We have big grounds, animals, and lots of walking trails around us with the most amazing views. You will also meet people from all over the world here.

As it's a big place, your duties will be variable. Your help will give me the time to work on my art and planning, etc. I also need help with culture projects that we host, like exhibitions, cleaning, organising, etc.

You will have your own room but share a kitchen and bathroom with others on the top floor. Sometimes you have to cook for yourself but food is provided.

Our nearest town is 3km away and has... more inside

We are a couple of 30 years, living in a house on the banks of the Loire on a plot of 1.4 ha. Recently installed, we have many different and varied sites to lead. market gardening, masonry, small and large wooden constructions, land planning, planting and tree care, material recovery, alternative technologies.

You are welcome to share a bit of our daily life; you will be housed in the house, in a private room. We have little electricity but we can recharge the phones on a daily basis.

We eat everything, alcohol and cigarettes allowed in the house. Vegan is welcome if you take charge of the menus.

The organization of work is done by daily meeting at the end of the day, we use a table to list all the actions to take; some actions have higher priority, but it is possible to carry out secondary actions in quasi autonomy. Weekends are free, work is done on the spot; we do not ask for specific skills, but personal investment and the desire to learn are paramount.

Bonjour and Hello,

We are a family of 5 (plus a very friendly dog, 2 cats, 11 assorted hens and a cockerel!) We have 3 sons (18,15,12) who moved from the UK in 2007 to this amazing spot in the Aude . We live in a former bergerie situated amidst beautiful wooded hills 3km from the small village of Arques on the edge of the Corbieres hills.

We grow a lot of our own vegetables and herbs and some of our own fruit all naturally. We are experimenting with different natural cultivation techniques to find ones that work best here and working with a variety of mulching materials.
We have a small organic market garden the produce of which we sell in the village and to the local primary school. We also exchange produce with friends.
Much of our land is marginal and needs help to become capable of providing good healthy crops. After years of growing here the improvements are showing themselves through some yummie-tasting veggies.
We have a polytunnel which in winter is full of ... more inside
