Mon compagon (Rich, qui vient d'Angleterre) et moi (Charlotte), vivons dans les Pyrénées avec notre fils Zephyr (5ans). Le lieu se situe en Ariege, a 30km de Saint-Girons, sur la commune de Sentein (au bout d'une piste carrossable de 3km).

L'endroit est magique au niveau paysages, très tranquille et loin du stress de la ville.
Il y a beaucoup de belles balades à faire aux alentours, de quoi se dépayser et se ressourcer !
La faune est tres riche (biches, sangliers, renards, rapaces, chouettes...)

Nous commencons a renover une grange, a 5 min de marche de la route. Nous souhaitons etre un maximum autonome, dans un etat d'esprit d'entraide joyeuse, en mettant des choses en places avec nos voisins (donc il y aura des journees ou on sera surement en chantier chez les voisins!)

Nous essayons de vivre le plus possible en harmonie avec notre environnement, nous avons des toilettes seches, nous chauffons au bois (bois qu'on fait nous meme sur place),pour l'électricité nous allons... more inside

Hello - welcome to our site!

We purchased this beautiful château in the Loire Valley in 2013 and with HelpX like yourself, we worked tirelessly to renovate it, taking it from its dilapidated state to the current splendour of a modern 21st century castle. There are still a couple of spaces to renovate, as well as finishing touches all around the château, so we get excited if you have trades skills to offer.

We have availability for you throughout the year and are keen to book interested people, like yourself, in for longer periods anytime over the year. We ask a minimum stay of two weeks with us, but longer periods are also a bonus.

We love positive enthusiastic people who enjoy all that life offers and can share that energy with those around them.

If you like working in the garden or have general handyman skills...we would love to hear from you. We would also love a stonemason to join us, as we have a few stone walls to repair. And if you have experience working be... more inside

This is a large house with large grounds and I require help with grass cutting, hedge trimming, leaf clearing, general maintenance, pool maintenance and management of trees etc!! Everything here is seasonal but not particularly organic based, this of course can change with the right planning. I am a single 65 year old guy responsible for the running of the estate and I would love some assistance to help maintain the overall aspect of the property. So young, adventurous, fit and eager is the order of the day!! There are tractors and grass cutting equipment, chainsaws etc!! I can instruct you in their use and give safety advice. You would be expected to work up to 30 hours per week for a period of 2/3 weeks initially, longer stays are conditional!! You would have your own bedroom, and there is free wifi and 2/3 meals per day, you can chip in with any cooking skills you may have at any time. I only have room for 1 person but there is always something to do!! I have some chickens and gr... more inside

Hello ! My partner and I used to travel a lot and we miss "traveller stories" We have two beautiful little girls now who are 4 and 5 years old. We have lived in Arcachon for 4years(and we're trying not to miss travelling too much as we have a happy life here by the beach). We are looking for help around the house as our flat has had some renovation changes and between things never having been properly unpacked and overgrowing wardrobes - I need to do some carboot sales! The girls go to a bilingual school from 8.30 to 4.30 so you will have free time during the day to sightsee or make the most of the beaches. We mainly need help for the evenings and playing - any everyday household jobs are welcomed with open arms too!!! We love cooking, and sharing homemade cooking traditions : Im veggy, Yass is a big meat eater (except for pork) and the girls like cooking cakes and cocktails ! We are very simple down to earthy people, we enjoy walks, beachdays, fundays but also chilling in the eveni... more inside

Hi

Availability - Now onwards

Currently we would love to have someone or a couple for taking care of the animals - feeding the sheep, poultry, horses, dogs and cats. Walking the dogs . We also have a bit of painting and decorating that needs doing on an apartment in Caen that we are getting ready for renting. Minimum stay 3 weeks, and the longer the better in general. We are happy to have people anytime of the year. We are always very happy to welcome cooks, and we have had some really amazing chefs over the years.

If you are good at riding, we have 2 horses, and they would welcome getting ridden more often than is currently the case.

We have come to the end of the major renovation project that is our 14th century home. We moved in in May 2017, and have been working ridiculously hard to try and finish the house, while setting up our small holding, with sheep, horse, ducks, chickens and cats. We have just finished building a barn for the animals.

We are a bilingual Fr... more inside

Hello, we are looking for 1 helper for 2 weeks or longer, obviously when the Coronavirus has left Europe. We are hoping around MID JUNE or into JULY. We would like help inside and outside and with plenty of gardening and watering. Outdoor work includes setting up the garden, cutting and trimming of trees and mowing the lawn. I am doing stone mason work which includes repairing a 700 yr old stone wall in the Roman Style. Also the helper must be able to lift and haul fireplace wood and ( ideally) know the use of a chain saw but not necessary. All of this work we do together. Further work includes simple window washing, exterior window and door painting. We are chefs from New York City so we offer great food and comfortable accommodation though we do not do cooking classes. In the summer time when weather permits, you have a deluxe caravan for your home. This helper or helpers must be very neat and punctual for work and not have special dietary requirements. We work Tuesda... more inside

Hi,
We, Eric and Caroline are a Dutch couple (42 and 47) that moved to France in 2010 to start a small hotel-restaurant-bar in a beautiful mountainous/volcanic area in the middle of France.

This is outdoor-country with lots of walking and cycling trails, fishing, parapenting, etc. etc. In the winter there is a large ski area at 15 minutes drive (Superbesse).

Our hotel has a homely atmosphere with 4 rooms and we have a restaurant with local specialties, bar, garden and terrace. We do most of the work ourselves. Caroline is the main cook and laundry lady and Eric does most of the maintenance, admin, marketing, construction work, waitering, bar tendering, shopping. Cleaning is our joined task.

July/August are the busiest periods in which we can just manage the day-... more inside
