We are a family of three, including a two-and-a-half-year-old little girl, living in a house in the very South of France, 5 minutes from a quaint historical little town in the Pyrenees.

The house has a large garden and a couple pastures and is set in a very quiet area (a hamlet surrounded by pasture land) in the foothills of the Pyrenees (40 minutes from ski resorts and 2 hours from the sea).

We are francophones and I am an English teacher at the local high school. I've visited 22 countries and lived in the UK and Canada. When I was a child, we used to host foreign students who wanted to learn French and I loved the experience.

We are very "Nature"-oriented, eat organic food, and have a vegetable garden as well as some fruit trees.


The garden is big and used to be an "abandoned" pasture, so it's fairly "rustic".

A lot of work has been put into it over the last few years (clearing, planting fruit trees and raspberry bushes, setting up a vegetable garden, etc...), as ... more inside

My associate and I manage a bar/restaurant on the nice campsite Domaine Duravel (4 stars) in the Lot valley in the southwest of France. The campsite is meanly visited by French, Belgian and Dutch people. The campsite has 280 places and has several swimming pools and other sports facilities. It is situated in the beautiful nature of the lotvalley, surrounded by vineyards and next to the river. The bar and restaurant are open every day but we expect from you only 5 hours of work 5days a week. This will leave you more then enough time to mingle with local people and tourists, visit the beautiful monuments and villages in the Lot valley (like Rocamadour, Saint Cirq Lapopie etc). All summer season several parties are organised in the surrounding villages.

We'll provide a bed in a house next to the bar, with bathroom (shared with others). You can use the internet freely. Breakfast, lunch ad dinner can be eaten freely with the rest of the staff. You can use the swimming pools.

We are Mo and David. We have retired from a very busy life running a spiritual centre in Kent England. We moved to this beautiful area in South West France in November 2007. We are both artists, David works in wood mostly although he is also fully skilled in building and maintenance. David and Mo built a kiln last summer and Mo is returning to making ceramics after a long absence. Volunteers would be welcome to use the pottery and art studio in their spare time..

We have about four and half hectars (about 12 acres) of land, which consists of woodland and meadows, which is cut once a year by a farmer, and a rose garden which surrounds the house. we also have a thriving vegetable garden.

We have an organic vegetable and fruit garden. We are very conscious of the necessity of being organic, but have had to use a limited amount of weed sprays on the ornamental garden.


We are ten minutes from the nearest town, in a very rural area, we have bikes and lots of quiet countrysid... more inside

We are an English family living in the foothills of the Pyrenees just outside the village of Greffeil. which is half and hour drive from the city of Carcassonne. Where you will find the Canal du Midi and the river Aude running through it. Also the medieval castle. A great tourist attraction.

Our home is set in 23 hectares of wood and open land where we keep horses and foals. Also pigs and cows.In spring we cut and bale hay which is quite a busy time and help would be handy to have.

we are quite isolated but if you like walking cycling and horse riding then this is ideal for you.

WE need a person who would like to help round the house and help on the land.

We do have bicycles to use so you could make it to the village of St.Hilaire where there are some shops.Otherwise you would have to rely on any of us to take you to the main towns.
