Hello, we are looking for someone for 1-2weeks to help me in the garden of a beautiful Old Presbytery which stands beside an ancient 9th century church ruin which is classed as a Monument historique. We are situated only 1.5klm from the sea in lower Normandy where there are many stunning places to visit.We can offer someone a lovely room with own en-suite, all meals and use of wifi in exchange for 4-5hours a day working in the garden. It does require strong physical work such as cutting wood, pulling out and clearing areas and general cutting back of hedges etc.Someone with some knowledge of gardening is a huge bonus and with creative ideas as I would love to turn this garden into something quite special. We would like someone ASAP so please get in touch if this is of interest to you. Many thanks Karen.

Spend one month or more, sharing my family life in France and helping me with my autistic son
----------------

###### French knowledges required to be able to communicate with the kids ######

-----------------
I am a single mum of 2 kids (14 and 18). The oldest one has got autistic troubles. He's easy-going, can talk and communicate, but can also have a "strange" behavior, well, an autistic one ! ;-)
It's a bit hard to do everything (as I work very hard and I’m a single mum...) and my kids are really happy when friends or couch-surfers are staying at home. That's why I think it's a good solution, to host someone, sharing our family life and helping me at home. The most important help for me is to be able to take care of my son in case I’m at work before or after his school (that means taking the bus to pick him up at the train station and coming back at home with him) or to play with him when I’m helping my daughter with her homework, and to help me in the garden and in the... more inside

I am currently renovating a little old traditional Quercy style House in the Lot department of South west France situated between Rocamadour and Cahors. Once complete I can begin the grand conversion of the adjacent barn into a house. I am trying my best to use as many locally sourced materials and techniques as I can, in order to produce a traditional country cottage feel with a modern efficient touch. I am looking for someone with gardening experience/interest to come in the spring and help with the starting of an organic vegetable garden. I am also looking for people to help with the construction and general landscaping. In return I can offer general building and carpentry skills and local knowledge from a beautiful healthy and happy environment that the Lot has to offer. There are many beautiful attractions close by produced by both Hand and nature, there are also many markets close by supporting the local organic production of fruit and vegetables.

We live in the countryside, in the South West of France, with our 20 months daughter, and we are expecting a boy for December. We have horses and donkeys and we are renovating a 17th century old farm. We need an English speaking au pair girl to keep our children at home and help us with our horses education and cares. We can afford you a car with a full tank each month, a large bedroom with its own bathroom, and you can ride horses as much as you want, outside or in an indoor area (we own a riding school). Don't hesitate to contact us to have more photos and informations !

Green builder, now project manager in Aude, France in a village near Quillan and Alison working in tourism are looking for a Helper wanting to learn patrimonnial renovation.

Hours are flexible but would like 6 hours per day or 5 6h days per week.
In exchange we will provide food and accommodation for this experience.


About us

As a family we moved to France to explore the possibility of a sustainable way of life. Situated in the edge of a valley within the Limousin haute vienne region we can witness the sun setting over the tree line. We find our way of life inspiring although not always easy as there is always lots to do but we wouldn't change it.

Our home is a work in progress thus partly renovated 150 year old stone far... more inside

Hello!

We, (a family with Aurelie (30), Pierre-Olivier (32), Evenn( 1)and since january a couple with Fanny (26), Gilles (25)) are Yurts habitants in a nice and forgotten village of Far-East France!
We are starting a cohousing!

3 years ago, we used to travel in France, Mongolia,Greece, Bulgaria, India, Sweden, England,... having really good experiences as helpers or wwoofer. it's now our time to settle down and have a lot of project to be done!

We found this nice countryside place where we are building Yurts, cardboard furniture, gardenning, making bread,...

Help is always welcome, and it's now such a pleasure for us to host travellers and volunteers, sharing experiences and good time!

Actually, we're busy with many things:

- upgrading of the area (gardenning, dry stone wall,tire wall,...)
- upgrading the circulation path
- upgrading of the building (painting,...)
- upgrading a lot of things (bike, water cycle, tools shelter, ...)
- learning to be parents!
-... more inside
