Bonjour!

Living in maritime Brittany, we are the French guardians of a 3 hectares (nearly 8 acres) piece of land on the edge of a forest, 6 kilometers from the sea and the gorgeous beaches of the north coast. It is next to a small village called Lanvellec.

Our land is a beautiful, Celtic green place surrounded by woodland, including two meadows, big granite boulders, a small lake with a place to make night fires, a stream and a fairy swamp, a big mandala-shaped vegetable garden, 3 Yurts, hand-made chalets used as working studios, and plenty of nice and quiet spots for contemplation or artistic expression, or whatever joyful and ecological activities you would enjoy!

For the past 16 years, our on-going project has been to create a retreat/garden centre for sustaining inner, spiritual resources and creativity, and the project is unfolding nicely, with the help and inspiration of so many excellent visitors over the years.

This summer again, we`ll have a number of differen... more inside

I can host in May,no problem with covid 19, totally independent studio ,help for outdoor work.
I am a retired and energetic lady, living in a bucolic and old house recently renovated, overlooking a stream , situated in a natural conservation area of forested Monts du Lyonnais.
I worked as horse riding instructor and scuba diving instructor. I like discovering new countries or simply enjoying nature by camping, hiking, kayaking (lately in wonderful Greenland) or cycling
I did a lot of work by myself on this property both in masonry and for the land. Recently a Canadian volunteer taught me the organic permaculture vegetable garden. Currently even if this vegetable garden is small, I can still transmit my knowledge.
I like working with Helpers, talking about what to do or my knowledge of plants (medicinal and culinary) or yoga, and of course about your country, your experiences during your trip, improve language learning, music, exchange culinary specialties and all topics ... more inside

I run an organic orchard (apple, walnut, hazelnut, chestnut, pears, ...) close to Lannion and 15 min from the sea cost. I'm also a beekeeper (around 30 hives with local black bees).

We also have an orchard, a vegetable garden, some chicken, and cats at home to look after.

Hello, we are a friendly British couple living in an 18thC farmhouse in very beautiful, unspoilt countyside. We aim to live in harmony with our surroundings where we grow organic veg., fruit & nut trees and herb & flower gardens.
Also living with us are 2 friendly dogs and we have free range chickens.
Please note: as we live with animals and a variety of trees and grasses this not a place to visit if you have allergies!
From early July we’d like some help in the garden and general help maintaining our old farmhouse, mainly cleaning and some painting/decorating.
Our nearest town is Marciac, 8 kms away, and is accessible by bicycle and I’m happy to take helpers in by car for example on market days or village fetes.
On days off I can drop you off at the bus stop if necessary so you can explore the area.
This is a very peaceful and beautiful area, ideal for lovers of nature, walkers, cyclists or if you like to practice meditation or yoga.
On selected dates we run resident... more inside

Salut,

Nous sommes installés depuis août 2016 dans une magnifique ferme en grès rose dans le Nord de l'Aveyron. Nous y avons déjà accueillis 2 chats,un chien, 4 moutons, 2 chèvres, 4 canards et dizaines de poules. Nous avons aussi planté un vaste verger et un potager en permaculture.

Mais nous avons encore du pain sur la planche pour mettre en place une ferme permaculturelle et pédagogique: entretenir le potager et le verger, mieux isoler la maison, accueillir d'autres animaux, organiser le système d'eau et d'énergie...

Notre mode de vie est assez simple, essayant de produire le moins de déchet possible en utilisant beaucoup de récup' et de recyclage. Nous cuisinons et nous nous chauffons uniquement au bois. Nous n'avons pas de TV et utilisons des toilettes sèches. Il n'y a pas de transport public depuis la ville. Nous avons fait beaucoup de stop par le passé, mais avec l’arrivée de notre fille nous utilisons un peu plus la voiture, tout en continuant a limiter nos déplace... more inside

We live in a chalet in the French Alps (1200m high).
Accomodation is at ground level of the home. You have your private room. You need to share bathroom with other helpers.

I`m a botanist, involved in citizen transition and sustainable development since 1991. My husband is a butcher.
We have a dog and no child and I need help in getting rid of wild rosetrees and woodwork at the helpers room.
If it rains we may be preparing jam or wild plants cosmetics.
I really need help in writing presentations, re-newing the website and work on videos. I'm a beginner!
I know nothing about the reopening of the borders at the moment...
Cheers, Dominique

The park has been prepared to be turned into a permaculture ground. From the late winter, we shall begin with designing and planting vegetables and fruit trees.Work to be done is ... gardening !

The castle has all the modern comfort, there are five double bedrooms dedicated to helpers.
