I'm looking for someone who has experience of building a timber frame house or who enjoys and is handy working with wood. We are putting up a smallish wooden extension to a stone building and putting in a bathroom and kitchen. The timing is from about the 2nd week of september and could last for a couple of weeks to about a month. There'd be plenty of other building to do once the extension is built if you wanted to stay on a bit.
The accommodation at the moment is quite basic - you'd be sleeping in the partially rebuilt stone house (the roof at the moment is just plastic sheeting), there's a dry loo and cold shower in the garden (and sometimes a hot shower at a neighbour's). We'd provide all meals and the working day would start about 9 and finish about 4 in the afternoon. The weekends would be free for you to do what you want.
We're in a beautiful river valley - the célé river, in the Lot. The river runs through our hamlet and I often go for a swim after work. The house is at t... more inside

We are an English family living in the heart of beautiful Normandy. We have four children ranging from 18 years to 2 years so life is very busy. We have a small holding with horses, donkeys, chicken, ducks, sheep, goat, cats, dog and our peacock family. While only a small scale farm with 10 acres there is always plenty to do and plenty we need help with. We have many outbuildings all in need of TLC, lots of gardening work plus the animals to care for, basic house hold chores etc. We also have a pond to reinstate, fencing to repair, hedging to see to, decorating and general DIY. The location is within walking distance to Argentan; a lovely town with all modern amenities however the farm is just nicely off the beaten track with byways for cycling (we have a couple of bikes), walks and wildlife. We always have various projects on the go and would love some general help. We will provide separate private adjoining accommodation with a private garden, kitchen, shower, lounge room with TV ... more inside

My family and I have recently moved to Brittany. We are in a beautiful little hamlet/village near Saint Leger Des Pres, 10 minutes drive from Combourg and its amazing castle and half an hours drive from the sea and beautiful beaches. Our home is close to beautiful woodland and plentiful wildlife. You will have your own room and shower room and will share healthy Organic food with us. We are still unpacking so still quite 'rough 'n' ready' and need help fixing up our property... gardening, painting, odd jobs and possibly putting up fencing. We have two small children and are finding it hard to get anything done! More hands are needed and as we have just moved to France, we don't know many people as yet!
We are an easy going English/French family who work in the Performing Arts (Contemporary Dance and Performance) and Holistic Childbirth. I love to practice Yoga when I can.
We are looking for HelpXers ASAP and ongoing... Thank you for getting in touch for more information and any ... more inside

We are a family of 5 living in France running our own business. We are looking for helpers, either a coule or a single lady, to help out in the garden in the coming months. Mostly clearing out the vegetable garden, building a polytunnel, clearing some trees and stacking wood.

We would ask for 15-20 hours work each week in return for lodgings (own room and bathroom) and meals.

We are a bilingual French/English family so could help out with language learning. We live in a lovely village not far from the town of Fontenay le Comte.

We haven't had any helpers for the past few years but are keen to meet new people.

*** Some dates still available for summer 2014 ***

I am an English woman named Jo, and with the help of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5 chickens and 3 soon to be 6 woolly lawnmowers and a digger named Doris, I am renovating a beautiful old farmhouse in the Tarn, south west France to make a space for yoga retreats.

The original farmhouse dates back to 1666, and is surrounded by 50 acres of meadows, farmland and woodlands, a big lake and what I think is the best view in the world! The house is situated in a valley below the 13th century fortified Bastide town of Cordes sur Ciel. The surrounding area is steeped in history and it is only a short trip to some lovely local towns and villages, such as Albi, Gaillac and St Antionin. Together Cordes, Albi and Gaillac make up the Golden Triangle, which is one of the prettiest areas of the Tarn, with its vineyards and white stone houses. The train to Toulouse only takes an hour, and the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coastlines are also... more inside

We are a family of 4 (children aged 9 and 3) living in a cottage next to an 18th Century watermill with wheel. Our project is set in 9 hectares of woodland and riverside pasture in Central Brittany. We are in the process of restoring a broadleaf woodland and plantation, aiming to do a woodcut in October. Anyone particularly interested in woodland conservation please contact us. For woodland workers we can accommodate people for 1 - 2 week stays all through the winter. Working 4/5 hours per day for full board in the house. All negotiable depending on individual needs.
Throughout September we are also welcoming helpers to our bell tent pitched next to the millstream. All propositions considered including families. We are looking for people to help in the garden and woodlands, clearing the millstreams and river on sunny days. In late September we will be repairing the banks of the millstream using traditional materials and methods (and a mini dumper). Should be fun.
Accommodation is... more inside
