We are a family of four (one adult and three children) in a beautiful French village with a church. We share a little organic garden with some friends in the village but are not very serious gardeners. We eat organic, mostly Sattvic food. We need help with the house as I have a young child - stripping wallpaper, painting. I also have a mobile mini theatre which we will be taking round festivals this summer. Anyone who could help in any way with that would be welcome, especially musicians who can do background music for fairy tales. We can offer you a room, healthy meals and an introduction into the lively social life in this part of the world. No smoking or alcohol. We are interested in storytelling, theatre,dance, yoga, music, collecting medicinal plants and we love Nature. There is a lake nearby, beautiful forests around for walking. I speak French, Spanish and English.

We are a French family with three children (7, 10 and 20 years old) who are looking for people wanting to give us a helping hand in our little corner of paradise in the mountains of the Ariège at 800m altitude. We are renovating an old water mill using 'green' building methods such as mixtures of earth, lime and straw and we are trying different techniques such as "tadelakt" and earth/wood chips etc

Your accommodation is in a tipi (with stove) and there are dry/composting toilettes, a wood fire heated bath and now a real bathroom in the mil. Ours is an intentionally simple lifestyle with vegetarian food and a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Olivier is a wood turner and Magali works in the nearby organic shop and also gives drama courses at the school.

In the autumn we produce apple juice which we sell at the market.

The work will be very varied and organised according to the weather, the children and what is most important at the time: for example firew... more inside

i live in a small village in the Ariege within the recently created regional nature park, in a wand beautiful part of the Pyrenees. I have a large property and am looking for help in maintaining it, pruing trees, planting vegetables and so on. There is from time to time further work on electrical upkeep, plumbing, roof timberwork painting, etc to be done.
Along with a friend, i am also carrying out a restauration project on an old templar command post, dating back to the 17th century. Current tasks are whitewasshing walls inside and restauring dry stone walls outside. We are a sizable group and it's very enjoyable work, carried out in great spirit.
The area offers diverse attractions to visitors: activitywise, there is hiking, caving, climbing, canyoning, hang-gliding, horse riding, ski_ing in winter. Culturally we are also a major centre for prehistory, with many famous caves in the area. For more recent history, there are a number of cathar castles, including Montsegur.

In autumn 2012 I (Wilma) bought a lovely house on the countryside in the centre of France : in l'Allier, one of the regions of the Auvergne. We are in between Paris (300km) and Lyon (250km). In the village called Saint Plaisir, there's nothing but a few houses, an old roman church and a little bar, but no shops, no museum, no nightclub ... nothing but nature, calm and very nice people saying hello even to strangers.
This house is an ancient bar/hotel/restaurant with a ballroom in it, where the ancient generation met their wives & husbands, they stop by, knock at my window to tell me about it. So charming ...

In november 2013 André and I met and decided to live together from that very day : love on first side !
So we bought another house with a vegetable garden . In this little house we are going to live when we will be older. Meanwhile, André bought a house in the village in order... more inside

Pour le moment, une personne s'est engagée avec moi jusque fin septembre, c'est très chouette!

Now, someone has just commited with me until end of september, it's great!

My name is Marlène and I am a 34 year old woman (just separated from my ex boyfriend), mother of a 3 1/2 years old daughter. I opened a small Café Restaurant at my homeplace in a small hamlet near the Gorges de l'Allier (where we can swim at summer time, it's very nice). There is the famous "Stevenson trail" that goes just in front of my little café restaurant, so many of the hikers/ramblers stop at my place for drinks or healthy snacks around lunchtime, they are very nice and cool people ( the concept of my food is special and quite new in France: organic plant-based and raw food, but also a traditionnal plate (with local cheese and sausage..), juice, smoothies, cafés...So if you want to learn about how to prepare raw food and make fresh juices and smoothies then I could teach you how to do it!
