This is us. Our little nest in a big world. On the edge of a sweet French hamlet, in a green valley.
The land is co-owned by myself, my fantastic sister Vanessa, and my incredible parents. Apart from myself, the rest of the family are now based in the UK, leaving me with alot on my hands!
We have a large barn used for storage and as a workshop; a herb garden, a large vegetable garden, a berry patch, ducks, chickens, geese, a dog, cat and our neighbour keeps his sheep on the land.
This is our fourth year with this land and as such we are still very much in the groundwork stage, establishing systems and putting in basic infrastructure. There is a lot of work to do but it is varied and we do it to our rhythm.
We have also put on a local festival and provide decor and sound system gear for events. Last year we also made a series of short films with local talent. Some of our projects are listed on our website, www.naufrage.fr

This is a small hamlet community of mixed French/Engli... more inside

We are a multicultural family with a nippo-brasilian mum (49 years old), a french dad (54 years old) and our brasilian boy (9 years old).

We are very busy with academic occupation and sometimes one or the other is away.

We are looking for a person who could :
- pick up the kid at school, give him a lift to the music school and stay with him when needed.
- help a little bit at home (even though we already have a house maid 2 hours a week)
- help out also with some gardening and some little house work once and a while.
We live in a very beautiful place and you would stay in a small "dungeon" (30 squared meters) with all needed comfort (bathroom, kitchen corner, wi-fi…).
We rejoice a pond, greenhouse, vegetable garden, garden basin and others old building we are trying to restore (as far as we can).
Very beautiful things that would need time…
All of this take place in Normandy, 5 minutes away from a beautiful old touristic city of "Villedieu les Poeles", 30 minutes away fr... more inside

Welcome to a piece of land about life in nature, which is slow, simple, pretty to watch.

We are Kévin (29 from Belgium) and Alice (30 from France) currently living on about 2 hectares of wild nature. We changed our life three years ago, leaving the city and all its habits for the wonders of countryside.

Our place is to experiment permaculture, to connect with people and animals, to build natural structures, to learn about autonomy, to discover the wisdom of our hands, to create and exchange knowledge.

Here there are a yurt, a wood hut, a geodesic greenhouse, a vegetable garden. Also fruit trees, a ruin full of life, phyto-purification (pools to clean used water), solar panels and rainwater tanks, two cats, three sheeps, a rooster and three hens. There are also a large range of wild animals passing by, like frogs, owls, roe deer, squirrels, ...

If you want to meet with us and help us for a week or two, you will be sleeping in a caravan. Not far from the mountains, you wil... more inside

I DO NOT NEED HELP FOR THE REST OF 2019 NOR FOR EARLY 2020

Born in England, brought up in Australia, after working in Southeast Asia and then London, I moved permanently to France five years ago. I live on a small property (1 hectare) in a hamlet in the Lot department in Southwest France. I have worked as a helper (# 731919HA) with HelpX in France and Australia. The area where I live is mostly given over to cattle farming and forests. I have been restoring a 240-year old farmhouse. The major works have been done. The house has been reroofed, rewired, and has hot and cold running water. The bedrooms have been insulated but I need help in laying insulation in the main living area. There is WiFi (which is reasonably fast as I am the only user in the area) and there is mobile phone reception. There is some plastering and painting still to do in the house.

The guest room (for Helpers) is fully insulated with an electric wall heater, double bed and chest of drawers. There is al... more inside

We are a farmer family, we are working on the production and direct sale of fruits and vegetables. We live together on the farm inside a Alsatian village close to Strasbourg. In the past, I worked as scientist during some years in universities and industries and decided some time ago to take over the small farm of my parents (they are retired but still help a lot). My partner Caroline is also helping, however she works part time somewhere else and is also taking care of our one year old daughter Mathilde. Caroline and Mathilde are away 3 days per week. We produce fruits and vegetables and sell them directly at home and on markets close to Strasbourg. Our biggest productions are strawberry, apples, potatoes, tomato, salad but we are producing a lot of other kind of vegetables in our fields and greenhouses. More about the farm: it is not an organic farm but we use pesticides as little as possible. We use black plastic cover to avoid weed growing and weeding is mostly done mechanically... more inside

Hi, we are a happy, joyfull family willing to share our hapiness to live in the hart of the Pyrenees to whom would like to help us to renovate an old barn, which is meant to be the a fasting and holistic health centre, wiht an alternative medicine approach. People, families, children with big health projects or simply willing to feel lighter and happier, will be able to find new ressources here through fasting and a living foods.
The renovation works have started. The roof is off as you can see on the picture (on the website) and is has to be elevated. Our family goes on raw foods some parts of the year. Those who, apart from working, want to be initiated to healthy and living foods are welcome! But we can provide you other food you might need as well. Energy and well being guaranteed!

We are at the very early stages of this permaculture project, and our vision is still taking shape.

Inspired by the Healing Field at Glastonbury Festival, I have long wanted to create a permanent equivalent where people can come for healing, and therapists can work in a naturally beautiful place.
I have also wanted to live in France since my 11th birthday, and it felt natural to me to look here for the right piece of land, which eventually came along after 9 years' searching. I bought the land and buildings in 2012, and have gradually developed it so that it is more habitable than before, although there is still plenty to do. Life took many twists and turns in the meantime, and I moved here this May 2019 with my beloved, Aurore.

'en temps voulu' ('all in good time') is a place of beauty, magic and healing, with minimum negative impact and maximum positive influence on our environment.
We envision a verdant, colourful, beautiful, multi-sensory garden and grounds here in Bouc... more inside
