Hi there,
I am looking for some help in renovating my ancient farmhouse in the Sud Vienne (Poitou Charente) France. The house is technically a building site with a new roof. At the moment I am re-pointing the outside stonework using lime mortar. I am trying to use traditional and eco methods where possible.There are hundreds of jobs I need help with: hacking off plaster, pointing, rendering, cleaning, gardening etc.- even a second opinion would be nice to have. I have all tools, protective clothing etc. on site. You can help as much or as little as you like (minimum 2 hours a day). I am willing to show you how to do things, but if you already have skills - even better. In return I am happy to provide food, beverages, accommodation and transfers to and from Poitiers Airport/ Train Station.

There is hot and cold running water, shower, wc. washing machine and fridge. I have 2 tents inside the house (to keep the dust off) with sleeping bags, camping beds, inflatable mattress, memor... more inside

This is a 26 acre established gites business with carp fishing in the Charente region of France. We have luxury accommodation and provide holidays for groups and families. We have two large gites as well as two beautiful lakes, one 7 acres and one 3.5 acres. We have a 10 x 5 metre on-site swimming pool which guests use and there are some lovely walks around our property and to neighboring villages. There are many beautiful places to visit in the vicinity and there is much to do for anyone visiting this region of France for the first time. We are building a very strong reputation and have many customers who come back year after year. We are looking for help with general DIY and gardening during our 2016 season as well as help doing what is necessary around our lakes. This could include cutting trees, repairing fishing areas, driving a tractor or a digger (if qualified). We have a very relaxed atmosphere and this would be a great opportunity to be an integral part of the team. Very fl... more inside

STRAW BALE HOUSE BUILD
The area is wooded countryside and the house will be load bearing strawbale construction with a tile roof, so the finished house looks traditional and blends in with the area.The foundations will be build from tyres and the garage will have a green living roof. The house build will start in July, expecting to end in September/October. There will be an experienced general builder on the site also who will be carrying out a barn conversion/improvement on the house opposite and will be happy to share his knowledge, so lots of opportunity to learn a lot of different building techniques. Accommodation will be camping on a friends land opposite the build with compost toilets and outdoor showers. Home cooking will be provided. Volunteers, ideally, should commit to at least a week as this makes things easier to plan.

We have the walls up and are now moving on to the roof and rendering etc. Experienced builders needed as the work is now more technical and labour i... more inside

I am refurbishing an old farm house in the countryside I have a large garden well planted. My house is close to the Normandy Invasion beaches in the USA sector, and is 30 miles away from Cherbourg from where I could pick up Helpx volunteers. I am an older retired English Projects Director, amicably divorced with an adult family.

I would like help with the gardening and some light renovation, eg, painting and helping me to renovate.
The last man was her fro 5 days I showed him around the museums' and beaches but as it is so quiet her he has left.
The accommodation provided is in the main house, a double bed in each of the two bedrooms and a single bed in one of the double bed room. There is another 3rd bedroom that needs some clearing up but that would only take a day or so.

If you are travelling alone then a room will be yours. I live separately in the attached one bedroom flat. I will be happy to provide three meals each day, either for vegetarians or non-vegetarians... more inside

A little house in the prairy is really close to our place. In the middle of field at the end of the world, Forest around makes it a lovely place for rest in peace.

THOUGH activities don't lack: organic vegetable garden, all classic animals for a littlefarm, soon a cow for milk, lots of mecanic to do on tractors especially, preserves, fixing sheds, fighting weeds, etc...
Help for cooking and dishes appreciated because it takes so long.

Children are not to be forgotten especially since it is all for their benefit. A playground to teach them about life, work and God.

We do not put our practice of religion first but we do put a lot of emphasis on proper relationships : Love and care is our moto though it is also part of the training!

If you feel like taking part of that wonderful experience of resting peaceful work in love, you are mostly welcome!

Spoken languages : English, French and German
Possibility for a couple on occasion
