We were a group of 5 persons living in yurts in the wet French Pyrenees, the group is now reduced to a couple with 5 children, but our goal is still to have more people living together. We have plenty of rocks and little earth, but our garden already feeds us in the summer. Our 2 donkeys are also willing to help us, but we didn't have enough time to work with them. The yurts are old, and will not last another winter. We already built a strawbale cabin and a larger wooden/straw house - both should be finished this summer (clay coating), and a yurt's stilts are going to be used for another strawbale cabin. So, building is the main activity for now, wood cutting is very needed as well, musicians are very welcome, humor is a must.
We will have either a yurt or a caravan for lodging, depending of how fast we can finish the second house. Vegetarian meals, our own bread at breakfast. We are glad to see people bringing their own inspiration, we like learning from others. We are often busy... more inside

Lovely old manor house with moat, lake, chickens, six cats and seven springer spaniels - oh and two humans. We could really use your building skills and general work inside and out around the property. Stay in a relaxed atmosphere in an en-suite bedroom with good cooking and an interesting area to explore.

This is a beautiful old french Manoir and it is rented out throughout the summer. We are looking for someone to help with the garden etc. The land is 4 hectares and so there is alot of mowing and strimming to do to keep it all looking nice. The garden also has alot of shrubs and flowers too. We have 2 dogs, white doves, chickens and a horse. The person we are looking for needs to be strong and enjoy outdoor work.

During this period: garden to take care about, and some paintings to do in the house(windows, doors), and improving my spoken english (our last daughter felt in love with a very kind english native man, I want to speak better english with him!); the house is situated 4km far from the next small town - (TGV from ther to Paris = 2 h 30), 25km far from Niort (cinéma...), 80 from La Rochelle.

Work :
Our American au pair who appears on the picture, is leaving soon. We are looking for a single preferably anglophone female child helper for at least 4 or 6 weeks each time (as we are on holiday every 6 weeks). But it can also be for a longer period. We would like a fun, caring, trustworthy, loving person to look after our 10 year old daughter and our Yorkshire dog.
And please, when we are at work, don't stay in your room while our daughter is on her own : the point of all this is based on linguistic and social exchange !
We like good manners, politeness and quiet people! I mean not people singing in our ears when we come back from work in the evening !
You would be going to fetch Emma at school at 11.30 in the morning and then take her back to school at 1.30 pm until 4.30 three or four times a week (monday, tuesday and friday). The childcare would be also useful on some evenings : very few in fact as we will gladly take you with us to most parties !

We are Tony and Heather, an active retired couple who live in a 5 bedroomed Longere in 5 acres of land (not a farm), part woodland with a stream; pasture, orchard and garden, in rural surrounds, area 56, Brittany. The hamlet is called Tellene; it has a bar/restaurant and access to good walking and riding country. Tellene is situated 15 mins from Baud and 30 mins from Josselyn. There is no public transport from the hamlet. We are non-smokers and have no language skills other than English.

The help we require is General Maintenance with the land, wood, garden and house. The most of the maintenance in the house has been completed so house is not a building site. The next project is to build a barn to house tractor, hay and straw. So we would require somebody with DIY skills who has woodworking knowledge; also who could help with fencing, gardening and woodland maintenance. It would be great if you also had an A level in poo picking!!!
We would consider a couple or single person ... more inside

Our home is in a small village 50 minutes from Carcassonne and close to the Pyrenees and Spanish border. It is a beautiful area, steeped in mystery and intrigue.
We are an English family of four, Persephone is 10 and Django 5.We are converting a large barn, using ecological materials, into a home. This year in our garden we hope to be building walled terraces for the potagers which we manage organically/biodynamically and clearing and nurturing our land for grazing. Any chainsaw or strimming experience would be great. We need general help with the building and landwork. We have two young horses in need of lots of schooling! We also home educate using the Waldorf curriculum. as I, Jackie, am a Steiner teacher, so anyone with any relevant teaching experience would be welcome too.
