English couple retired to France in 2003 living in hamlet 1km from village with café/bar and 13 kms from medieval town of Parthenay, Deux Sèvres. 1 adorable dog and 3 treasured cats rule the house so helper must be an animal-lover.

We would appreciate help in the garden with weeding, watering, chopping branches, clearing overgrown area, and indoors with painting etc.

Helpers have their own room with double bed and adjacent shower room. Wifi available. A communal evening meal with wine is included or you can cook separately if you prefer. Breakfast and lunch provided by hosts on a help yourself basis. In return, we ask for 20 - 25 hours' help each week, flexible on how these hours are spread out.

Walking and cycling (bike provided)in the local Gatine countryside is one of the pleasures of the local area. We are less than an hour from the university city of Poitiers, capital of Poitou-Charentes, and 1.5 hours from the coast at La Rochelle.

I've been out of the HelpX 'loop' for a while due to work and commitments to the NGO in Cote d'Ivoire.

NOW looking for someone for a MINIMUM of 2weeks, we have a few big parties going on in the village & you should have a lot of fun! In return, I'm looking for someone who won't turn their nose up at chaos, is prepared to muck in & use their initiative. A lot of DIY work needs doing so ideally someone with some DIY experience.

This would mean a 4hr day/5 days a week in return for a room in the house, food and the odd glass of wine, a great social calendar (you'll pick up French quickly that way!) and free internet access!


Happy to take travellers who are interested in getting to know the real France and have an easygoing personality!!! I'm very much integrated into French life & spend summer evenings with my French neighbours who speak a little English, but you'll soon pick bits up!


I do have a hectic life but try to give HelpX'ers as much of a local experience ... more inside

Winter in the mountains. You love the outdoors - you want to ski, walk and live in the mountains. I live in a ski chalet in the resort of La Plagne, Paradiski. It's a beautiful 5 bedroom house which looks out onto Mont Blanc. It's less than 25 m from the ski slopes. I only need help with light work,painting, some companionship for a 12 year old boy and some basic DIY, plus looking after cats and a tortoise. I love cooking and would welcome people who enjoy to eat and try different foods. You would have most of your days free to ski or snowboard. There are always many seasonal workers here as well so companionship would not be a problem.

Hello everyone !

Gaspard and I (and Louve, our dog) live in a small house in the beautiful "Vallée de la Loire". We try to be as self sufficient as possible ; we still have some improvement to make but we're getting there ! We have a special interest in fruit trees, permaculture experiments, alternative energies...
We need help with dry stone walling, gardening, construction of a solar oven and general construction work. We ask for 4 hours help per day(in the morning), and for people eager to share ideas and good food with us!
We are also musicians(Gaspard plays the saxophone, I sing and I am a comedian too) and I love drawing, writting and photography.
Gaspard also has great interest in anything that has to do with freedom of information and computers (Linux...)
We both do some alternative healing ( if you're curious about that : http://lumignons.e-monsite.com/)
The area is quite nice (birds of prey, wild boars, roe deers, few snakes, wild flowers...) and we have a yurt fo... more inside

Hi,

We just bought a former farm in Burgundy, with 2 hectares surrounded by fields and woods!

We have a lot of works to do on one of the outhouses, a former barn that we want to renovate to be an extension of the main house, which we want to be a passive house.

A big part of the 2 hectares are devoted to our poney (and his future friend), and we will organize it as a paddock paradise. The rest will be our garden, where we are beginning to create an organic vegetable garden and plant trees and medicinal plants following the principles of permaculture.

Lisa : I'm a veterinarian, working mainly with horses, and also dogs and cats. I use a lot phythotherapy, aromatherapy and homeopathy in my work, and I'm also interested in micronutrition, behaviour study... In my free time I like reading a lot about various things, writing, photography, spending time in nature, learning languages...

Greg : I'm a real estate agent, I'm very sociable, I like sports, reading and learning... more inside
