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

Beautiful chateau guest house specialising in all inclusive family holidays and weddings.
Set in idyllic country location. Near all the major tourist sights - Mont St Michel, Bayeux tapestry, D Day beaches.


I have all the helpers I need for 2011, but there is a pattern to the year if you want to be considered for 2012

During spring (March and April) I tend to look for a band of helpers to get the house and grounds ready for the season. Lots of spring cleaning, painting and gardening (light and heavy work, building works, concreting etc. Happy to take up to six helpers during this period and varied skills are welcome.
