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

Over the winter and spring months here in South West France is when we really need the most help on our property - mostly outdoors work on the land - and it is a perfect time of year to visit the Dordogne!
You will find us an easy-going, adventurous, hard-working, young(ish) English couple, living at and working on our 42 acre estate. We very much enjoy meeting new people, and now that our 3 kids are in their 20's and left home, we do a lot of international travelling ourselves.
We rent out our beautiful home during the summer months, and so need to keep it in tip-top condition for our guests.
You would really enjoy staying at our place - It is quite exceptional!
In return for very comfortable accommodation and tasty meals, we would like help with any or all of the following: gardening (and land management of our 42 acres), tree-cutting and log-splitting (all machinery based), painting & decorating (window frames and shutters), general building/handyman work, and cleaning (to pr... more inside

Hello everyone!
UPDATE: We are looking for someone for our team in October and onwards until the end of the year and into 2019!

We are a French family and we welcome helpers throughout the year!
A great variety of tasks at hand: interior decoration, barn conversion, garden, landscaping, paint jobs, carpentry, making pizza in the old stone oven...We are also looking for people who like to spend a little time with children! And we have horses -
poneys in fact - and a donkey! So the choice of what you do will also be yours!

We live in a large and comfortable farmhouse near the medieval city of Poitiers.

We're a few people living in the Pyrenees mountains (south of france near mediterannee sea), a place isolated from road and town.

Our main goal is to restore the potential of the old little village La Coume to allow people to live there.

We run different projects: organic gardening, raising animals (chickens, goats, donkeys, horses), rebuilding ruins with old methods, making our own energy.

I am looking for people to help me 6 hours per days 4 days a week. I expect autonomus people who are not afraid to work hard and walk.
People need to be able to reach us by foot,work independently, cook for everyone, do a bit of housekeeping.
You must be aware that it's not a holiday center...

In exchange I will be happy to give them food, housing, activities happening around in the valley, trekking and exchange knowledge. You will be lodged in a commune house with a dry toilet outside.


Most of work is hard and outside: building with stones, electric fences, clean the fields, ... more inside

Hello, I'm traveling by inland river barge through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. The barge is an original Dutch built peniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend.

There is a simple separate -little- room (see photo..)for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitation, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave.

The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking??? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

Kind regards,

William
