Hi, we run a large beef cattle farm near the town of Montmorillon. We're a Dutch/English couple with a German background, so we speak a variety of languages. We've been helpers with helpx last year in New Zealand, which has been an amazing experience for us. Now we welcome helpers at our farm. We have just started here and are just getting into it. A lot needs to be done, so there is always something that will suit you. Veggie garden, building work, farm work, garden work, French tutoring and so on. We have plenty of rooms available and our cooking is not too bad :). Large swimming pool and bbq for the hot summer days are also available.
It is a big farm (about 900 acres) with a lot of wildlife (wild boar, deer etc), woods and ponds, so there is plenty to explore.
We're very easy going people and our main interests are animals and mountains! We have both done various seasons working as ski instructors. Franzi used to be a primary school teacher and also has done a lot of horse rid... more inside

We need help as my husband is seriously ill we need someone who can paint and decorate and someone who can plaster and do odd jobs. We are located in the Lake district of rural France and we are surrounded by fantastic countryside which is ideal for anyone who likes to go rambling or cycling. We are in a small hamlet located 1 k from the nearest village. Our neighbours breed horses. We have an excellent internet connection for those that have to have their daily fix of computer time it is wi-fi. I have an excellent reputation as a plain cook and anyone coming to help us will be well fed. We have a small cottage on the premises which will be for the exclusive use of any helpers. I consists of two double bedrooms lounge/diner/kitchen and off course a shower room. Couples are welcome but they may have to share the cottage with someone else. Looking forward to seeing our future visitors.

We run a small plant nursery in the Charente region of South-West France. We are also renovating several very old buildings.
Work would include nursery work, helping on a market garden, grafting roses and general traditional building and renovation work.
We are a family of Nick, myself and 3 girls 9, 4, and 3. Accommodation would be basic as the house is a work in progress. We are both ex-teachers and would be happy to help with spoken English and French. We would like around 20 hours of work a week in exchange for meals, basic accommodation and help with language.

Beautiful Farm in a lovely setting in the Charente Maritime on the Gironde estuary. The village has a port and several restaurants and is lively in the summer. The farm is a mixed farm but mainly we grow grapes for Cognac and Pineau. There is internet access at the library (about 5 minutes walk) and I am in the process of installing internet "chez nous." I am looking mainly for help with childminding duties at various times of the day as well as a hand around the farm,(my daughter is 10 years old) Please telephone in the evening as I am unusually working on the farm during the day, I am French but I do speak English and my daughter understands English very well too. I look forward to meeting you.

*The first of the plums trees has started to blossom, a beautiful sight. Must get on and finish the fruit tree pruning NOW! Why not come and give us a hand*

We are an English family living in a small French Village in Poitou-Charentes.

We have an orchard with around 30 mature trees including walnut, cherry, plum, apple, pear, peach, quince and vines; a large vegetable plot and small number of ducks, geese and chickens.

We are looking for one person or a couple to help us tame our orchard and maintain productivity in the vegetable plot. There are a number of trees which need pruning, mulching and general care. Knowledge would be helpful but not essential and the work would not be too demanding - No more than a few hours a day. Ideally this work will happen during the spring.

With the age of the house and the out buildings there is always additional tasks to be completed alongside the gardening. Again, none of this would be too technical or strenuous.

In return we... more inside

We are a young English Family living here and running two gites in the Summer months and require an individual or couple just for a couple of weeks before the start of the season to help get the gites and gardens ready - some light building work may be required and general garden maintenance. The house is just 20 mins from the coast and the busy town of Royan. Accommodation would be self contained in one of the gites and we would provide an evening meal as well in return for approx 25 hours work a week. We look forward to hearing from you!
