We have been living and working here for the last 17 years. The property is set in 23 acres (9.25 hectares) and is made up of a hunting lodge, farmhouse and a rundown Porcherie. Jennifer is a catering manager in hospitality for a motor sport team, Malcolm is a working musician. Malcolm also works as a professional antique stove restorer, so there are always interesting architectural antiques about the place. We are both in our 50s. Jennie has a wide repertoire in the kitchen and is quite happy to teach those that are willing. She can teach the following cuisines: Indian; French; Cordon Bleu and good old fashioned English country cooking. Jennie is also an excellent vegetarian cook.

We have three adorable donkeys, three miniature black sheep, a flock of interesting breed chickens, a pond full of Indian runner ducks and a Toulouse goose. We also have four cats one of which is a pedigree Maine Coon. We have a productive veggie plot which helps to feed us throughout the year. We look... more inside

My horticulture and market-gardening is situated in the most southern part of France still in the plains just at the foot of the Pyrenees. You'll live in a mobile-home (equipped with all comfort: fridge, shower, tv, internet etc.) at a place in nature with a magnificent view at the Mount Canigou. You can easily reach any destination by train or bus. I grow vegetables and flowers, I have chickens, greenhouses, orchards and open fields, and sell on markets. I'd like help with all parts of my work, 5 days per week, 6 hours per day. I am a German woman, speaking also good French and not so bad English.

We moved to this property just over two years ago. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The neighbouring property has a shepherd living there with a small flock of sheep & a small herd of goats, and the horses that are in the fields for the winter months will soon be taken up to the mountains in the Pyrenees for the summer.

My son (aged 32) is back helping us with a lot of the DIY, but every now and then he returns to where he lives to do other jobs. My daughter (aged 27) lives with her partner nearby and our grand-daughter had her first birthday in March. Both my son and daughter are completely bilingual and I speak French reasonably well ~ my husband still struggles! We are retirement age, but still very active. However, my husband is not a DIY person, but does love the garden. We really could do with some help on all sorts of levels and hope to find somebody who would enjoy being in France for a while.

There's usually some tasks to be done with our newly created veg... more inside

We run a small friendly bed & breakfast in the south of France, with three rooms plus two small gites (cottages). We are environmentally and politically aware and are trying to grow some of our own organic vegitables. We do not watch TV but we do have lots of films. We have been running succesfuly with the aid of our son who has left to teach snowboarding in Canada and really we need some help in order to achieve the things we need to do. Our home is an old traditional French house and always in need of maintenance.
The main areas we need help with is gardening/growing and keeping our piece of land clear of scrub. Assisting with our b & b in terms of serving / clearing and ironing would also be helpful. We are in the process of transforming an old garage into a gallery so some building / woodworking etc is also possible.
We are able to do all these things ourselves however with our son now in Canada and with Lin not too fit at the moment, another pair of hands or two would be most... more inside

Hi !

I am a 22years old french girl and i would love to invite some helpers in my flat which is situated in Bordeaux ( south west of France, 30minutes from beaches), a beautiful city ( have a look on internet ! :-) ). I live in a quiet district but not far from the center of Bordeaux.
It's not a huge flat so i can't receive more than 1person but i think it's enough for 1person.
I don't really need someone to help me but i'd like to improve more and more my english, share our experiences, our ways of life ... give you the chance to discover some greats spots in Franc if i have enough time.
I spent six months in Australia (november 2010 to may 2011) where i was a helper, many people were generous and tried to help me so now if i can do the same thing, it would be a real pleasure.
If you have any questions, let me a message.I can send you some photos of the accomodation.
Looking forward to hearing from you !

ps : I would love to go to swede, so if someone wants to join me... more inside

This house is in the process of restoration. Plans for this year include the restoration of the exterior, creation of bedrooms and bathrooms, painting and decorating etc. The summer season will finish half way through September with an exhibition and heritage weekend when we will be expected to be open to the public. Preparation for the open days is extensive and includes 'spring' cleaning.
Our other properties are a large 7en suite bedroomed former convent in a nearby village, helpers will be accommodated here, which has need of a freshen up. Lastly our son's house which is a medieval property which up until 3 months ago had no back wall......lots to do, lots of fun
