Gerry and I would love (really need) to have some help with general renovations and gardening. It may be that you are on your way to somewhere else and want a week or two HelpX volunteering enroute or you may want to stay longer. You would have your own accommodation with kitchen and you can either eat with us or we can take you shopping in the local village and market so you choose your own shopping and we pay for it. We are close to the local town, Riberac 24600, that has shops, bars, restaurants as well as horse riding canoeing and lots of wonderful walks.
A lot of the work is largely unskilled, ( but we would love it if you can do renovation work) and is about working alongside us rather than working on your own (although if you have special skills we would be happy to assist you) so dont worry if you havent done much helping yet. We can provide all the equipment including gloves and boots.
We have been here some years and are technically retired but life is too boring with... more inside

Bonjour,

J'habite dans un pavillon avec jardin, situé entre Melun et Fontainebleau à 35 minutes en transport de Paris (via le train). J'aime voyager, aller danser, je pratique la randonnée et le vtt, le yoga... et j'ai un potager depuis maintenant 2 ans. J'ai un chat et deux poules.

Je mets une ou deux chambres à disposition contre des travaux de jardinage, de décoration, bricolage, rangement, nettoyage, etc... Mon objectif est de rendre ma maison plus accueillante!
J'ai le projet en mars de refaire ma cuisine. Si vous avez des compétences spéciales, n'hésitez pas à m'en faire part que je puisse m'organiser.
J'ai aussi besoin d'aide pour cultiver le potager, tailler les arbres, etc...

Je vous indiquerai les lieux où aller. L'endroit est idéal pour visiter la capitale, Paris, et Fontainebleau, le château de Vaux le Vicomte, je vous laisserai faire à votre guise.

Je ne cuisine pas, mais vous aurez la cuisine à disposition.

Je parle un tout petit peu anglais, mais... more inside

Hi, my name is Pierre, a southern France organic and biodynamic wine maker. I live in a quiet village not far from the sea with my mum, sister and nephew.
We have 5 hectares of vineyard and 40 olives trees on our property. We also have a cow and chickens.
I am a funny guy and I am really athletic. Most afternoons I go rock climbing or surfing or mountain biking.
The work depends on the time of year - harvesting the grapes and pressing them in August or September; washing wine tanks; pruning the vines over the winter; digging up invasive blackberries throughout the year; bottling and labeling the wine in the summer; preparing orders and shipments, etc. We do many different types of projects and work based on what needs to be done or what comes up - on the property, in the garden, and in the vineyard.

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 25, 23, 21, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris and Angers.
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".

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.
