French Chateau under renovation in quiet rural location, close to local village. We are looking for help all year round with building renovation work, decoration and services in the main building, landscaping of the gardens and woodland maintenance.

We prefer to speak French as not all of us speak English. We're very happy to help those who enjoy practising their French conversation, however rudimentary. Written communication is fine in English if it's easier.

We live on 2.5 hectares of meadow and woodland in the hills around the beautiful mountain of Bugarach.

We have quite a low impact way of life with compost/dry toilets, 12v renewable power and a vegetable garden that provided most of our food. The mains water supply is very restricted but we do have a beautiful roll-top firebath in the beginnings of a bathroom (another project) that overlooks the mountains. .

We live quite close to/amongst nature & spend a lot of time outside. We have a cabin for the family & there is a cabin (small), caravan (large) & tents for friends & HelpXers. We also have a levelled clearing that has been used for Yurts & Tipis - so if you have one bring it along!

Our projects are mainly centred around ecological construction, including... more inside

Looking for animal-loving, outdoors-type, hard working people! In september 2016 I bought a small property 'in the middle of nowhere' that needs a lot of love and attention (not to mention work) so it can become an eco-friendly, clean, warm and beautiful natural place for visitors and guests to enjoy!
Update march 2019: the work is progressing well and the place is getting more and more beautiful,.
I am looking for a hand with the garden, weeding, land clearing,and/or dry stone building! This is a wonderful time to be in this area of France; lovely weather, lots to do and see and great people to meet!I can help you to learn french (or english) and I am not a bad cook! We eat good vegetarian and organic food here, and lots of home made cakes,.:-) Please contact me if you want to spend a few weeks sharing in the work and joys of this place!

We offer to the hosts a place to set back from the city life and take time with oneSelf.
The opportunity we offer you is an intense involvement in daily activities, being part of the house, You will be helping with a little of everything to get different experiences, you can learn a lot. My wish is that you don't feel it as work but as part of family life and developing experience in something in link with Nature and fulfilling you inside. You will have some free time after lunch in summer, helping again later, and in the winter free after 5.

ENGLISH VERSION : (VERSION FRANÇAISE EN DESSOUS)

My name is Emmanuel, I am living in Mas Després, a raw food community where we do permaculture.
I am graduated in naturopathy. I have been helping on organic farms during my travels in Australia, Brazil, Asia ...

The land of our community is about 8 hectares where we are planting fruit trees and vegetables in the spirit of permaculture.
We have some figs trees, plums, apricots, peaches, persimmons, cherry trees, almonds, grapes..., some of them are still young some others just starts to give fruits.

I need help in the orchard, for taking care of the baby trees, planting new trees, and sometimes other works.
When I work in the orchard I like to take my time to feel a good connection between me and the nature in the garden. There are some beautiful insects, wild birds, gekos, wild edible plants.

I will be very happy to share my knowledge in permaculture and to receive your opinion and share our experience.
