**We still have space for the summer season, do get in touch!

We have bed and breakfast with a little organic garden. This is a place of peace, a little bit in the countryside but as there are always people around you`ll never feel lonely. Philippe looks after the garden while Jeanne-Marie is mostly running the bed and breakfast - making sure everyone has a good stay. We eat all meals together with all guests and friends/family.
I`m experimenting more and more with vegetarian cooking but there is always meat and fish at the table for the people who want it
And Philippe like meat always

There is always something to do, either in the bandb or in the garden. Normally in the morning you help cleaning the (bath)rooms when our guests have left. You can help in the garden, picking fruits and vegetables and learn how to prepare them for a nice, healthy meal. A good opportunity to experience proper French cuisine. French is mostly spoken but we also speak a bit English,... more inside

Hello, my name is Kim. I came from England 12 years ago in Brettes to start a sustainable living project on an old farm.
I was a farm with animals but now, as I'm getting older, I have changed to just vegtables. I still have few pigs and cats. I Grow wide range of vegtables. Have good knowledge on all herbs, my herb garden continues to expand every year.
There is a lot of different work to do beetween the garden (weed, plant, harvest) the house (electricity, destroy some wall build new one, clean) and the animals (feed).
You can expect to live in a lovely spacious bedroom or mobilehome. I speak English.
So if you want to share my ideas and laughs and have a nice time together, don’t hesitate to contact me.

See you soon!

We are a retired couple who have lived in France for over 14 years and we live in a small village in rural South West France between Poitiers and Niort. As we are not as able to do some of the work as easily as we used to, we could do with help with a couple of projects over the next couple of years. We are an amenable and very relaxed couple who have no prejudices and are slightly left of centre in our views whilst respecting everyone's right to have a viewpoint.
Over the next couple of years we could do with help in general garden maintenance ie cutting trees, trimming hedges etc. Next year we would like to finish our garage and build a verandah money permitting.
We enjoy gardening/growing veg/and generally relaxing with a glass of wine or beer. we are originally from the North West of England and so we like plain, nourishing food and we are pretty plain spoken to boot. Our House is a detached sous sol and we have two bedrooms so any helpers would be living with us. We have co... more inside

Here we are again ! After having had a great experience in 2016 with a Swedish helper, we would love to host helpers in June and/or July 2018!

Après une expérience plus qu'heureuse avec une helper suédoise en 2016, nous pourrons accueillir un helper à nouveau pour nous aider avec les travaux en cours et la saison touristique de 2018 ! (Voir explications en français en bas).

We are a Durch family of 4, who have lived in France since 1992 and live in an old property in the Poitou-Charentes. Jan (1947), Beer (1962), Charlotte (1995) and Norah (2004). Both Jan and Beer have work that needs preparation in our office at home and makes us travel around France by times, and besides that we are managing three self catering accommodations and a small campground. So we alter office work with "down to earth"-work on the premises and on the buildings, that we are restoring forever, so it seems!

We are a bunch of laughing people, love to debate on a whole range of issues, accustomed to... more inside
