Owners of a lodge in the Alps in the middle of a still wild region, we just bought an old house in the same village. It needs to be renovated entirely and we need help.
Nous tenons un gîte d'étape dans ce petit village de montagne, à 10mn de Veynes et 30mn de Gap.
Tout est à refaire dans la vieille bâtisse, maçonnerie, plomberie, élec etc...dans un esprit de respect des lieux, d'écologie et de confort !
le grenier à aménager devrait devenir une salle de travail, lieu de stages ( sophrologie, yoga )ou de résidence pour musiciens. Si vous avez du temps, l'envie de partager ce projet et que vous aimez la nature, nous vous ferons découvrir avec plaisir le Dévoluy, la rando en toutes saisons et les produits du terroir !

Looking for nature lovers to help out on a renovated 500+ year old hunting lodge, located in the middle of a forest. We breed and show Rhodesian Ridgebacks, so you must be dog friendly and able to deal with large hunting dogs, there is a lot of garden work but in a lovely peaceful setting, far from the hectic of modern life.

.Hi I am Zoe an English women, living in a rustic old farmhouse in the Gers. I have done lots of work on the house myself, with the occasional help from my daughters. It is a quiet rural area but there are plenty of villages and towns near by with bars and restaurants etc. This is a beautiful place and the weather is fantastic in summer. I am very easy going and relaxed, I like people to come to us and be part of the family, we enjoy good home cooked food and sitting outside in the evening having a few glasses of wine, chatting and watching the sun set, in the winter by open log fires.
I now want to start work on a small stone barn which needs complete renovation, I want to keep it as original as possible, and use as many reclaimed materials as possible. most things in my house are second hand, I love old, rustic charming things, Im not in to the modern world, but there is wifi in my house! Anybody with any building skills would be much appreciated.
My passion is cooking so t... more inside

This is a traditional french farming house. It is composed by the main house, several sheds, a big terrain for agriculture and a big garden. One of the sheds is turned into a reproduction of a classic English pub, and the others are used as warehouse or they are in disuse.

Nowadays this place is in danger of becoming ill by the passage of time. But at the same time it is full of ideas to be turned in a new project based in the exchange, giving cause for different projects as permaculture, centre of alternative medicine and energies, and any project that the volunteers want to carry out.

The captain of this "ship", i.e. me, is a very generous and gracious man, plenty of ideas to keep afloat this old boat, but his condition doesn't allow him to realize the necessary work. That is why he need a crew that wants to be implied to help him to turn this place into a ship of dreams capably of sailing along the sea of tempests that is the world.

The main idea is give life to this pla... more inside

We've been resident in SW France over 20 years & recently moved into a new house we designed ourselves, built on the ruins of an old stone one - Sean is an architect. There's extensive outside work still to do (landscaping, building workshop etc) which we need help with. We are looking for 1-2 volunteers - (if 2 : a couple as our guest room has a double bed) for 2 weeks to 2 months from April 2016.

Sean's architectural office is based at our house here in France and Anne works with him, so we both will be able to work alongside you sometimes. Depending on your skills it would involve some building work, gardening and /or garden creation, minor interior DIY, possibly occasional housework (window cleaning etc). You would need to be reliable and able to work on your own.

This would be a great opportunity for those wanting to benefit from Sean's architectural knowledge to work with him on the things that need doing here on our own home! We are now in our early 60s and are findin... more inside

Hi!
We are a retired English couple who came to live in the SW France in the summer of 2007. We have been gradually renovating our small farm since then.
Our property is situated in the sleepy Charente. 60km north of Bordeaux and 45km south of Angouleme. We are located in a very rural area which has prolific wildlife including boar,several species of deer and an amazing array of birds of prey. At certain times of the year the Golden Oriolle and the beautiful Hoophoop bird are to be seen.This year we have even had a Nightingale nesting close to the barn.
Our farm is within 15 minutes drive of a popular etang (manmade lake and beach) with its large Sports Centre,complete with all equatic amenities,fitness room and squash court,bar and cafe which is open all year. There is also a very popular restaurant which overlooks the lake,though this is closed from November through to March.
We have 6 dogs, 9 horses/ponies and 3 cats plus numerous chickens and ducks.
Our main discipline with... more inside

Hi helpers !

I live in South West of France, in a little medieval village. Our village is 20min drive from Agen, the nearest city, which is in between Bordeaux and Toulouse, 1h30 driving from each. Our house is a charming stone house in the country.
I am 56, married living with my husband and have two lovely children (23 and 26) who are sometimes here as well. 2 cats (Zelda and Prunelle) are also part of our family.
You also have to know that I smoke (I know, it's bad....) but I totally refuse any consumption of drugs.
Myself and my family would be happy to meet foreign people ! Here, you'll be considerated as part of our family, we also like to have a lot of fun !

I also would like some help for my vegetable garden, cleaning (and swimming if you like !) the swimming pool, a little bit of housekeeping, cooking if you like or whatever is going on. I expect a maximum of 4 hours of work per day, I am very flexible about your day off.
We all can speak a little bit english, but... more inside
