We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in commercial 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 harvesting, general forestry and garden management,animal care, autumn planting plus various indoor projects for bad weather. The olive harvest is late October.
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 ... more inside

Originally from the North East of Scotland we moved to Central France and bought the abandoned farm in 2008 after selling up in Scotland in 2006 and down-sizing to a camper-van with our two huge dogs and touring around Europe looking for the right place to put down some roots. We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spend time in and have fun!
The hectare of land is divided into pasture for animals and a potager/vegetable garden and orchard for food production. We are joining up these areas to create an all-encompassing "forest garden".
We have recently given up our g... more inside

We live with chickens,3 cats and 7 poneys (haflingers),
We have a little nature camping, with a holiday house, wooden caravan etc...

Currently looking for help for December in particular pet sitter/s over Christmas.

I work a lot in the summer so need a little extra help walking our dogs and keeping on top of the house and garden. Must be animal lovers, our dogs are very good - we also have 4 cats and 2 hens. All our animals are rescued. Our house is small, but welcoming. The spare bed is situated on the mezzanine above the living room.

I live near the sea and there is a beautiful lake walking distance from the house where you can also swim. Spain is just 20 minutes by car. We really are very lucky here as we seem to have everything - sun, sea, lakes, mountains....

I am vegan so this is a meat-free household, but i`m happy to share some very tasty recipes.

Pretty easy-going and have a good sense of humor. It`s not the place for people looking to get drunk every night, although moderation is fine.

I try to find a good balance between getting help and giving you enough free time to explore and enjoy y... more inside

Currently we seek help. We run a small hotel-restaurant in Auvergne in France at the crossroads of two hiker trails GR 4 and 30. We decorated the hotel in a classical warm atmosphere and then added to the existing rambler rooms for backpackers a number of more regular hotel rooms with ensuite bathrooms. The hotel lies in the beautiful surroundings of the Parc des Volcans in the Auvergne with an exquisite landscape to be discovered as a hiker or on a mountain bike. Since we are also quite near to the ski station in Super Besse, we accommodate many ski-lovers in winterseason. On our premises you will find a large garden with terrace and a parking. Since we do very much everything ourselves, from cooking, serving, a bit of marketing, administration to cleaning, we are eager in finding a nice person to help us out in our household. Send us an email if it appeals to you!

Hi there ! We are a quite normal family of 7 people, with 5 children from 25 to 11. The first 2 are away so we have a room available. We would love to have somebody from abroad to share about everything ! We love cooking, we grow some vegetables and we are willing to learn more about foreign cultures and sustainable habits. It would be great to spend some time with the youngest when they are home, reading stories, playing games, doing homeworks. You can also help cooking or gardening. We actually don't ask for working hours, you will be free most of the day. We live at 30min by bus from Rennes, the first city in Brittany, west of France. It's a nice place with many thing to do and see. We are actually one hour from seaside as well !
We don't have a typical breton livestyle (excpt eating crepes ;) and we live in a small town not far from countryside.
Well, we don't pretend to have anything special, so we don't ask for anything like this. Just being yourself, with curiosity, kindnes... more inside

***We need last minute house and cat sitters for 7 days 12-19 December 2019.***

We are a British couple who have moved to France to renovate an old building and run a b&b!

We are looking for a mature couple of people who could come and help us. Non-smokers only please and vegetarians would be wonderful! All food provided will be vegetarian ie no meat.

The work:

We are looking for helpers for 1 week at a time. We are looking for helpers in the garden. Building some walls, laying some paviers etc. Later in the year we will need help in replacing a window, or installing a ceiling, building in fitted cupboards etc etc.

We are flexible on the work arrangements. It could be done in a block of days, or a few hours a day, or a mixture of the two, allowing you the time to explore the region and its volcanos, chateaux, pretty villages, markets, vide greniers etc.

The area:
