Hi, as autumn winter approaches we are looking for a more long-term live/work arrangement, this would suit a couple best......so if you are looking for a place to spend a few months please feel free to get in touch.

We live in a small mountain farm in the Pyrenees, having moved here last autumn we are now completing the “yoga barn” which needs floor tiling, some external pointing and some zinc guttering work completed.

Its mostly outdoor work and physical, we like to do it as and when we feel like but usually in short bursts, a few hours at a time leaving time to read, snooze and generally enjoy the nature and environment here.

If you are self aware and love nature, cats and dogs, mountain/country living, occasional yoga, working land, making things, sharing meals and living with friends, our project may be for you.

We always like to "meet" volunteers by skype or phone.

Thanks for looking in, if it feel right it probably is.

Thanks for your visit.

Ian and Nina.

We run a small-holding with accommodation on our farm, and have been resident in this beautiful part of Normandy for over 7 years. We have ponies sheep and other animals, as well as an organic vegetable garden, so work would include garden maintenance, working with the animals and general helping out around the farm.

our season runs from March to November, but we have renovation and building projects outside of these dates. We are located by the coast (10 minutes), beautiful sandy beaches with very few people. We have rooms in our house, or one of the gites on site if available.

Lots to do and see including the granite coast, d-day landing sites and the mont st. Michael. Not a lot of nightlife, would suit country and animal lovers.

We have bikes and possible vehicle use, why not drop us a line?

Cheers

Wil and Amanda

Very small and rural homestead/smallholding with a large vegetable garden and small orchard and an assortment of outbuildings and annexes in various states of repair. I've been living here since 2010 with a couple of dogs, a couple of cats, a few chickens and a whole lot of homegrown produce. I need help (25 hours a week to be covered how you like) with general gardening duties - absolutely no experience necessary - keeping the small vineyard (150 vines) under control, picking fruit, weeding, mowing, digging, planting - whatever seasonal tasks are on the agenda. It could be pruning one week and picking cherries the next, or digging up carrots or planting a herb garden. It's very diverse! There's also a lot to be done on the house, including simple stuff like painting right the way through to helping me gut and refurbish the kitchen and bathroom. I have electric, but no television. The internet connection is superb, but in summer, the only reason to come inside is to escape the heat... more inside

accommodations (separate cottage) meals given for help with 2 school aged children between 4pm-7pm weekdays (3 or 4 hours a day 4-5 times a week).

We have an empty guest cottage for your use. My children are 7 and 10 years old and I would like to improve their English.

We own our own business not too far from my house and we often have to work late so I am looking for someone who has a drivers license to pick them up at school and take them home, help with homework eat together, a little light cleaning..

so for this experience it would be better if you had experience working with children or at least if you liked children..
