Perrine, 55 years old, is a self-employed accountant and administrator.

Denis, 54 years old, gave up his career as collective kitchen fitter and repairer to renovate this former summer camp and turn it into a holiday resort which will also provide reception halls for rent.

We have been together for over twenty years and are rather good at DIY (we have already renovated a three floor house near Paris, where we used to live), but we need help to renovate this place, where we have been living for almost a year now, because it’s too big for just the two of us.

Located on the banks of the Aveyron river in Tarn and Garonne, about three kilometers from the village of Saint Antonin Noble Val (cittaslow labelled), our property is made of three separate buildings: an old mill, a very old building full of charm (approximately 600m2) and a more recent building (approximately 500m2). The land is about 18 acres wide and consists of garden, woodland and meadow. The area offers a wide var... more inside

Dear Helpers,

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette and Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Please, in order to get an appropriate answer, read the entire description and when you contact us please answer to all the questions we ask at the end.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BandB with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sh... more inside

We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in production. We practice permaculture and the olives are part of a `forest garden` which also includes 200 cork oaks, carob and other trees and shrubs. We also have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, dogs, cats, a house pig, donkeys and worms!. Living in a Mediterranean climate we practice several different methods of water recycling and have a biological swimming pool. Help is required with all aspects of a compassionate, sustainable lifestyle.
Meals are vegan, wine is served with the evening meal and we are non smoking. Current projects are general forestry and garden management,animal care, plus various indoor projects for bad weather.
Normally up to 4 helpers are here at a time, living as part of a family style community. We ask a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, with longer stays very much preferred. People usually book a few weeks ahead, but we sometimes have last minutes vacancies.
