We live in a small rural hamlet, 20 minutes from Mont St-Michel. The nearest small town is St-James, 5 km away. We are English-speakers, but quite good at French, and with some understanding of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
We are looking for a couple or two friends (possibly up to a maximum of 4 people) for a stay of up to 6 weeks or so, starting as soon as possible, to help us renovate an old property. We need help with a broad variety of general projects: Starting and maintaining a vegetable garden, general handy work around the property, painting, decorating, building raised beds and grass cutting/hedge trimming, etc.
You would be staying in the newly acquired property. We will provide food for breakfast and lunch for you to prepare yourselves; while we will all sit down together for the evening meal. We also hope you may be able to teach us something about your own style of home cooking and that you’ll share your life experiences with us.
We have bikes available, and the... more inside

Hi, This is a real challenge for you !!!
We are trying to renovate the farm and run it at the same time. It is not easy. It had been abandoned for a few years. We started with a few chickens and rabbits, now we have goats, sheep, a donkey, lots of birds, a huge fowl unit under construction, clearance of the ground - brambles and stinging nettles all over ! as well as a bit of a garden. The project of a small business is hatching, but I have to start a year's course to obtain a status of a farmer. So I need help with the morning chores, not really anything else, although participation in all aspects of life tending to be self sufficient muchly appreciated ;-). The morning chores include:
-preparing the breakfast faire for the 2 pigs, 10 goats, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits; the sheep and the donkey have all-you-can-eat buffet in their 6 ha field behind the house; distributing hay to those who eat it, some straw to make everybody comfy- as needed, topping up water for everybod... more inside

We are a young couple Floriane et Cyril with a cat and have a nice wooden house with a big garden. If you want visiting Ariege it is a really nice area with a lot of prehistoric site and a lot of bush walk across the mountains, rock climbing and you can ski in winter. We will be happy to give you a bed and 3 meals a day in exchange of small work gardening in spring and summer, cutting wood in autumn, and house cleaning in winter. This is just an example contact us prior and will let you know what happen at the moment. We are French speaking and know just a little bit of English but we are willing to learn more and we can always understand by body language :)

We are in the gorgeous foothills of the French Pyrenees and are making this offer to one or two people who are looking to enjoy some time here.
Stunning French scenery, a beautifully renovated chateau carriage house with WiFi and all mod cons, comfortable & clean rooms, good food and an easy-going atmosphere.

In October we will need a hand with a range of tasks, from decorating, moving furniture, cutting and moving firewood to domestic chores and dog walking.

Working hours and tasks can be altered to suit whoever we accept, and in October I expect to offer accommodation ONLY in exchange for around 15 hours of work per week.

Hello! We are a family of four, living in an old mill house on top of a hill in the countryside. We are renovating our house and also have about 100 ares of land to maintain with a kitchen garden, fruit trees, and a pond. That, plus our jobs and our two kids who are aged 5 and 7. So we are pretty busy and enjoy having people around to help us, and also to share different cultures and experiences.

We need help with the renovating works of the house, the maintaining of the garden, various DIY jobs, but also with looking after the kids, cooking and cleaning the house. There is no need to work more than a couple of hours a day and the timetable can be arranged with the person(s) coming. At the moment we especially need help with keeping up the house and looking after the kids and meals.

We like sports, arts and crafts, music, cooking and we like to eat well! You are welcome if you would like to share our activites and want to make new acquaintances.

Stay in a beautiful 10 bedroom, Napoleon III Chateau also there is a separate 2 bed guest house. Located in Allier, 20 mins from Vichy. 3 hours south of Paris, 2 from Lyon. Sat.TV & Dvd player in some rooms.
Need help both inside & out.
The house has been undergoing renovation for the past two years most of the heavy construction is completed but still plenty of work for, Carpenters & Painters. It is being finished to a very high standard so if your experience is limited you'll take away more skills than you arrived with.
Outside is 2 hectares of Park land plus a forest with many ancient tress and a 1 hectare paddock for the horses. Kitchen garden, Apple, Pear, Plum & Fig trees. Animals include Horses, Cats & Dogs plus chickens, ducks, turkeys.
So lots of work to do both inside & out. 5 hours a day should suffice for fabulous home cooked food, traditional English I'm afraid, Sunday roasts, Pies, Stews, Fish & chips plus an Indian at least once a week (best Indian south of Par... more inside
