We are a NZ couple who bought an old stone farm house on 25 acres in the SW of France.

With the onset of spring we are looking for help outside in our garden, there’s still a little fencing to finish off to keep the deer out so that we can do more planting, and we need help to keep those weeds down.

We love creating spaces around the house in our aim to create a beautiful garden. We would like to clear areas of stones to put down more lawns, strim some walkways in between the big old oaks. And the vege garden needs revitalising ready for this years vege. We have all the tools needed including a tractor and mini digger.

In return we can offer you the experience of living in a very beautiful region of France. The house is surrounded by fields of either wheat or sunflowers, we are 2 kms from our local village which has all amenities and an amazing Irish Bar (like every where in the world). We are 15 kms from a reasonable sized town and an hours drive west of Toulouse in the Ge... more inside

We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in production. We practice permaculture and the olives are part of a `forest garden` which also includes 200 cork oaks, carob and other trees and shrubs. We also have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, dogs, cats, a house pig, donkeys and worms!. Living in a Mediterranean climate we practice several different methods of water recycling and have a biological swimming pool. Help is required with all aspects of a compassionate, sustainable lifestyle.
Meals are vegan, wine is served with the evening meal and we are non smoking. Current projects are spring planting, general forestry and garden management,animal care, plus various indoor projects for bad weather.
Normally up to 4 helpers are here at a time, living as part of a family style community. We ask a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, with longer stays very much preferred. People usually book a few weeks ahead, but we sometimes have last minutes vacancies.

We'd like to offer accommodation in exchange for improving our spoken French along with cleaning, gardening, ironing and cooking etc. We also have a holiday studio rental and help with changeovers would be appreciated.
We are based on the outskirts of a small French market town, with easy access to good walking. If you would like to improve your English, whilst experiencing a French way of life this could be ideal. We are a couple with 3 dogs living between the town centre and countryside.

Bonjour et Bienvenue!

HELP NEEDED WITH GARDENING, WOOD CUTTING, STONE WALL BUILDING, GENERAL MAINTENANCE, COOKING.

PLEASE read our profile fully and note that our home is rural, and public transport in the immediate vicinity is almost non-existent. That doesn't mean we're isolated, just that buses and suchlike are not on the doorstep! There are local trains, and we do have bicycles for your use. We can supply approximate cycling times to local villages & towns on request. We do recommend a car or other motor vehicle as essential.

We're an active couple who would like some immediate and ongoing help with various projects around our house and land in SW France: ideally a couple, but will consider 1 or 2 people - offering you your own fairy-tale self-contained cottage or even a Pigeonnier - hours and other details by arrangement. Start as soon as possible, May or June, for up to a month.
Prefer non-smokers and meat-eaters, please, though we can explore vegetarian options... more inside

Hello,

This place is an old farm converted into an accommodation business. There is always plenty to do whatever your skills and fancy (garden, building, decoration, chopping wood, cooking etc...) in exchange for your accommodation & food in this beautiful region and natural reserve.

The place is close to Mt Saint Michel, St Malo, Rennes. You can also go for great forest walks and swimming in the lake strait out the front door.
I am a 29 year old Engineer on a sabbatical.

I have used Helpx as a helper a few times in the past, so I understand (and agree) helpxing is not about cheap labour but a cultural exchange and a communal effort to develop a project that is interesting for everyone.

I hope you come, and I hope you have a great stay :)

Bonjour,
Je suis une maman avec ses trois enfants de temps en temps, et j'aurai besoin d'un coup de main pour entretenir la maison, couper du bois, cuisiner ou garder les enfants... 2 ou 3 heures par jours..
C'est une maison plutôt écologique avec des toilettes sèches, un grand terrain sur les causses et une vue splendide sur le lever du soleil qui transperce la brume.
La région est superbe mais assez isolée. J'aime la musique, le sport et rencontrer des gens..Je travaille pendant la semaine.
J'ai beaucoup voyagé, et maintenant que je suis prête à me poser je veux continuer à garder des contacts avec l'extérieur...


I will be happy to host a handyman for outdoor help in the garden, light renovation, cooking or baby sitting !

I'm alone with 3 children in a beautiful country. The village is small with 100 inhabitant, and house is very isolated. It's better to have a car because there are no transport, and distance to the first shop is 10 kilometers. I have an internet conn... more inside

Last minute cat loving house sitters needed for 15-31st March.

No work this time, just looking for cat lovers to look after them and our house.
The dates are 18 March to 31st March, but please come some days earlier to settle in and get to know the cats. The accomodation is our 2 bedroom suite with private bathroom. We are vegetarian but although we don't expect you to be, please be considerate and clean any utensils used for meat, really well.

It's much easier than you would be thinking to look after our 9 rescue cats!! I've found them myself mostly around our village, or they have been brought home by the other cats, and therefore their ages are approximate. They are all now domesticated, socialised and don't venture far from home. They like nothing better than to be all squashed together in the same basket. They are used to people coming and going in our b&b and like to be made a fuss of, though some require proper introductions first!

Their food is always available f... more inside

We have decided to try and speed up renovation work on our semi-ruined farmhouse property in a small hamlet close to Albi and Gaillac (Tarn). The pool is in, so is a big kitchen and dining room, bedroom, office, shower room and bathroom - the essentials! But there is still a lot to do and we are not getting any younger... We need help with stonework – in particular we have a project to build a low stone wall along the back of the pool (see picture) and point the existing stonework on one of the pinion walls (about 20m2) we would also like to finish building up the stone cladding on the back wall (see photo). The paving around the pool is set in sand rather than concrete and this year we need to re-seat them as quite a few have moved... they weigh 20 kilos a piece so this involves heavy lifting! The list is long and of course we can’t expect to get it all done this year – the final list of jobs would depend on the skills you have. We also need to get on with some of the inside work (... more inside

Hi, I'm Frenchman (62) but used to leave in USA and French Polynesia. In this Corsican village I want to give back life to my old grand father house. It's already confortable, but need much more to be sweeter. I was a "CHEF" so cooking and eating should be good! Will spend some time in the house and in the wood. Helping in cleaning a oak tree forest and land. Helping in construction and rebuilting old traditional dry stone, fixing stone house, floor decking, wood work, concrete work, and different building projects...As well as discovering pig farming, "charcuterie" and goat cheese making.Fun & humor will be part of the job & life!!!
