Hello Helpers!

***update 25/04/18***
I just broke my ankle last week so I am stuck with a cast and need some help around the house and with the animals

I am living in the countryside not far from Tours and I need help to manage the house and the animals.
I have a few goats, chickens, two cats and a horse! they are all super friendly and funny!
The house always need care too : there is quite a lot of lawn to mow, sometimes a little bit of weeding and the vegetable garden always need care :D
the house is very quiet and remote so it is better if you have your own car! It is in the middle of the fields and the forest with a lot of walking tracks all around!
the neighbourhood is really nice too : lot of castles, wine, cycling path along the Loire and the Vienne. If you like good food, History, and quietness you have found the right place!

I am asking for 2 hours of work/day and you get free accomodation in exchange. The room is quite big with double bed, your own bathroom a... more inside

We are looking for experienced bar staff for several weddings throughout the Summer. We are trying to become self sufficient with heating from wood from our forest instead of using oil. We need help getting logs that have already been cut from our forest into our log barn.
We also need some help painting our gates and shutters.

We can offer very comfortable accommodation as we have just finished renovating the manoir. We love to cook wholesome food and enjoy local wines. We are close to many famous chateaux of the Loire and many reputed vignerons.
We are 15 minutes away from the famous Loire Valley chateau of Valencay.

UPDATE 06/2017 : We are in the middle of the hay-making season so we search for people willing to give a hand !

We run a little farm in the centre of France, in the department "Indre", not far from the little town of Chatillon sur Indre.

Francois works with horses and I create websites and give lessons on computer tools. We both work a lot and would like some help with garden, some painting and general house work ( cooking, cleaning, ...). This is the main core. We also need various help following the season. Some fencing, wood cutting, and help with the hay-making in summer ( we still make small rectangular bales: very traditional and social. This is a one-of-a-kind experience. Our children brought friends some times and they all loved it !)
If you have special skills we'll find a way to use them.

Even if we have horses, they are mainly customer horses, and for reasons you can understand, can't be ride by anybody.

Even if we are never out of work we are not "jailer... more inside

Hi, we are Malcolm and Edward and we run a small B&B in Central France, and would like some help please to get a new kitchenette done and a fire pit dug.

If you are interested in a long or short term stay, please tell us when you want to come.

We have a lovely double room with en-suite toilet and shower.We have bikes for you to use. If it is something you would like to do please email us and do contact us for transport options, eg, Ryan Air, Trains. Thanks.Edward and Malcolm

Malcolm and I have been here since July 2003 and have renovated this house and done the garden in that time , it took us 2 1/2 years to renovate so we could open as a B&B, we have 4 rooms and can take up to 12 people.
We have had some great helpers and hope to meet some more.

I know we are off the beaten track but Argenton is 8 Km away and the Loire Valley with loads of Chateaux are only an hour away by car.
All the best and happy volunteering.

Hello volunteers!

We are a big family composed of Olivier 42 years and me, Vanessa 40 years accompanied by 5 adorable children: Baptiste 22, Elisa 20, Orane 18, Yuma 12 and Aiyana 10 years.
We have some time now to buy a pretty forest that we call "Utopiot". My husband built three small green chalets (conf photos) in which we have lived for three years. In this same forest, we plan to build our own house alias "the castle" (which will be a little bigger, in order to be able to house our small family and why not welcome other people in the other outbuildings !).

This project, that of building a wooden house with a roof terrace, began in the summer of 2015. In the form of a participatory site; We shared a great experience with the many other participants (friends, volunteers, young people, old people, children ...): an enriching collective moment, full of energy and exchange! The music, the good food, the drink (do not forget it) were present!
So we decide to take up this beau... more inside

Just a short update to say that we could do with some help for our winter wood supply and we do have some plumbing and wiring jobs to complete, if any one is competent in these fields and looking for a stay please get in contact.We have lived and farmed in France since 1990. During that time we have had a multitude of visitors from all over the world for our B & B (which we no longer run). We have also had a great variety of people to help us from Australia, the Ukraine,France and the UK. Something we find stimulating and interesting.
This is a farm of just over 100 ha. We have two main enterprises, single suckler cows and sheep. With production of cereals and other crops used mainly for our own animals. As the farm is relatively small by todays standards we have also diversified in breeding dogs and welsh ponies.
This means we always plenty and a variety of work. Work for volunteers can be equally very varied depending on your skills from using the chainsaw to helping with the ... more inside
