French Chateau under renovation in quiet rural location, close to local village. We are looking for help from spring through to late autumn with building renovation work, decoration and services in the main building, landscaping of the gardens and woodland maintenance.

Just arriving in Arles for a few months, in a house that needs some renovations - not heavy works anymore but with a lot of details to fix. And in the garden too.
I have 4 bedrooms, so enough place to host a single or a couple. The place is in town, very near the historical center of Arles, beautiful as much as the Alpilles or the beach not far at all.
My project here is to built a house welcoming for artists of every kind, sometime just for recharging energy and ideas, sometime for working a project...

Hi, my name is Pierre, a southern France organic and biodynamic wine maker. I live in a quiet village not far from the sea with my mum, sister and nephew.
We have 5 hectares of vineyard and 40 olives trees on our property. We also have a cow and chickens.
I am a funny guy and I am really athletic. Most afternoons I go rock climbing or surfing or mountain biking.
The work depends on the time of year - harvesting the grapes and pressing them in August or September; washing wine tanks; pruning the vines over the winter; digging up invasive blackberries throughout the year; bottling and labeling the wine in the summer; preparing orders and shipments, etc. We do many different types of projects and work based on what needs to be done or what comes up - on the property, in the garden, and in the vineyard. Please note that depending on the time of year and work,... more inside

After volunteering in various farms in the world, I managed to convince my father to accept hosting volunteers too and I`m really happy to start that new experience in our property. The farm is only 1hectare, sufficient for a family to grow veggies and care few animals for our own consumption. It`s about 10years that we didn`t do much on buildings and the priority will be renovate walls and roofs. I live in a mobile-home in the middle of the farm with dry toilet and solar shower but we provide private room in the house for volunteers. We are actually renovating the house, so It's "work in progress" inside, there is still a bathroom with hot water, but also a lot of dust :)
I`ll be assisting volunteers during week days, that will be also during the week that you'll have free time, as on weekends, my father is here to work with us. He doesn`t speak english. Hopefully you`ll speak some basics french to communicate with him.
We share meals and life in general in familial athmosphere.... more inside

Clement has worked on the project of self sustainable, self built cabin situated in an orchard since 2010 and he became a farmer (organic and bio culture) 4 years ago, he now has a large vegetable farm.

***English*** français en dessous

Hi,

We're two friends in our 30's living in a typical Girondine house 30km north of Bordeaux on the banks of the river Dordogne borded by vineyards.

We are 20 minutes walking distance from the nearest village, St Gervais (where we'll happily drive you if needed), and a bus stop which will take you straight to the centre of Bordeaux. The region boasts some world famous vineyards, quaint villages nearby (Bourg, Blaye, St Emilion,...) and lovely countryside walks.

We are renovating the place in order to turn it into a holiday home and are looking for up to 4 helpers (single, friends or couples - families upon request) to help us in the tasks that await us. This will go from helping us in dealing with the larger outside projects we will have : rebuilding a portion of a the river wall, levelling up the dirt track leading to the house, resurfacing the terrace around the pool (which you'll naturally be free to use) and landscaping the front ... more inside
