In autumn 2012 I (Wilma) bought a lovely house on the countryside in the centre of France : in l'Allier, one of the regions of the Auvergne. We are in between Paris (300km) and Lyon (250km). In the village called Saint Plaisir, there's nothing but a few houses, an old roman church and a little bar, but no shops, no museum, no nightclub ... nothing but nature, calm and very nice people saying hello even to strangers.
This house is an ancient bar/hotel/restaurant with a ballroom in it, where the ancient generation met their wives & husbands, they stop by, knock at my window to tell me about it. So charming ...

In november 2013 André and I met and decided to live together from that very day : love on first side !
So we bought another house with a vegetable garden . In this little house we are going to live when we will be older. Meanwhile, André bought a house in the village in order... more inside

Pour le moment, une personne s'est engagée avec moi jusque fin septembre, c'est très chouette!

Now, someone has just commited with me until end of september, it's great!

My name is Marlène and I am a 34 year old woman (just separated from my ex boyfriend), mother of a 3 1/2 years old daughter. I opened a small Café Restaurant at my homeplace in a small hamlet near the Gorges de l'Allier (where we can swim at summer time, it's very nice). There is the famous "Stevenson trail" that goes just in front of my little café restaurant, so many of the hikers/ramblers stop at my place for drinks or healthy snacks around lunchtime, they are very nice and cool people ( the concept of my food is special and quite new in France: organic plant-based and raw food, but also a traditionnal plate (with local cheese and sausage..), juice, smoothies, cafés...So if you want to learn about how to prepare raw food and make fresh juices and smoothies then I could teach you how to do it! I also have o... more inside

Hi, we are an English speaking family, Paul, Sarah and our two children, Ben 9 and Freya 5.

We live in a traditional gascon farmhouse, surrounded by sunflower and wheat fields, the house has a very rural feel but we are only 5 minutes from the busy town of Lectoure. We have a swimming pool to cool down in during the hot days. We also live with a Beagle who is 2 years old and very energetic and our cat who is not energetic!

We are 20 minutes from the large town of Agen and 30 minutes from Auch.

We are looking for practical people who can help work in our garden cutting down bamboo, planting, weeding and internal paintwork for 5 hours per day for 5 days a week, from mid April onwards.

In July & August during the school summer holidays we also look for someone who is great with young children and has lots of energy to help entertain Ben & Freya.

**LATEST UPDATE** Now looking for HelpXers between now and June - sorry, no space between July and September! In the spring it's mainly work outside, with a mix of brush-cutting, weeding, pruning, general gardening tasks, with a little interior decoration.

We spend much of the year in Asia, but I am back in our beautiful 18th century farmhouse in rural Provence, at the foot of the Mont Ventoux to prepare things for summer rentals. Plenty of gardening to do throughout the year, as well as rebuilding an old stone-walled pond fed by our slightly sulphurous spring (hence the name of the farm, 'L'Eau Salée'). It will be a lovely feature once it is restored. Other major projects include renovating an ancient well. Inside the property there is some painting and general upkeep to do, when the weather is less pleasant outside (pretty rare in this part of Provence)...

We're close to the Roman town of Vaison (7km) and Malaucène (3km), so although there are no other houses in sight, all ... more inside

Here is a great chance for you to make a real difference I have 2 holiday cottages (one of which I live in) with extensive grounds that need to be brought into use after some neglect.
This is a very rural area of Brittany with great areas to walk, hike, cycle, nature and bird watch with wild boar, deer and a lake not to far away.

WE are looking for help and ideas to create a wild flower garden, re-align the hedgerow on part of the rear of the premises. The front area to be landscaped again with wild plants and we have an area at the back which we want to create a fire pit and BBQ to entertain you and our other guests.

There is also a plot which we want to use for organic vegetables and may be even a poly tunnel for tomatoes… We have 2 sheds that require moving and repairing along with some internal and external painting and wood preserving.

You will be living in the main cottage unless the Holiday let is empty, we work from home so always around and will be happy catering... more inside
