We have been living and working here for the last 17 years. The property is set in 23 acres (9.25 hectares) and is made up of a hunting lodge, farmhouse and a rundown Porcherie. Jennifer is a catering manager in hospitality for a motor sport team, Malcolm is a working musician. Malcolm also works as a professional antique stove restorer, so there are always interesting architectural antiques about the place. We are both in our 50s. Jennie has a wide repertoire in the kitchen and is quite happy to teach those that are willing. She can teach the following cuisines: Indian; French; Cordon Bleu and good old fashioned English country cooking. Jennie is also an excellent vegetarian cook.

We have three adorable donkeys, three miniature black sheep, a flock of interesting breed chickens, a pond full of Indian runner ducks and a Toulouse goose. We also have four cats one of which is a pedigree Maine Coon. We have a productive veggie plot which helps to feed us throughout the year. We look... more inside

We are building a house and hope that it will be compleate by July we need a strong willing able person in July to lend a hand for two weeks approximatly. You would help build walls lay gravel etc max hours per week would be 30 with no weekend work. The house is in the Cancilla area of the town of Quillan AUDE and you would stay with us in your own room with all meals provided, internet access would be available for a limited time, we will be using it to. We would pick you up at either Carcassonne or Perpignan airport/station and return you there at the time suitable to you. French is helpful but not essential but we would only ask one thing and that we would have only a NO SMOKER. We are both Scots who have retired and the wife is a excelent cook.

My horticulture and market-gardening is situated in the most southern part of France still in the plains just at the foot of the Pyrenees. You'll live in a mobile-home (equipped with all comfort: fridge, shower, tv, internet etc.) at a place in nature with a magnificent view at the Mount Canigou. You can easily reach any destination by train or bus. I grow vegetables and flowers, I have chickens, greenhouses, orchards and open fields, and sell on markets. I'd like help with all parts of my work, 5 days per week, 6 hours per day. I am a German woman, speaking also good French and not so bad English.

We moved to this property just over two years ago. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The neighbouring property has a shepherd living there with a small flock of sheep & a small herd of goats, and the horses that are in the fields for the winter months will soon be taken up to the mountains in the Pyrenees for the summer.

My son (aged 32) is back helping us with a lot of the DIY, but every now and then he returns to where he lives to do other jobs. My daughter (aged 27) lives with her partner nearby and our grand-daughter had her first birthday in March. Both my son and daughter are completely bilingual and I speak French reasonably well ~ my husband still struggles! We are retirement age, but still very active. However, my husband is not a DIY person, but does love the garden. We really could do with some help on all sorts of levels and hope to find somebody who would enjoy being in France for a while.

There's usually some tasks to be done with our newly created veg... more inside

We run a small friendly bed & breakfast in the south of France, with three rooms plus two small gites (cottages). We are environmentally and politically aware and are trying to grow some of our own organic vegitables. We do not watch TV but we do have lots of films. We have been running succesfuly with the aid of our son who has left to teach snowboarding in Canada and really we need some help in order to achieve the things we need to do. Our home is an old traditional French house and always in need of maintenance.
The main areas we need help with is gardening/growing and keeping our piece of land clear of scrub. Assisting with our b & b in terms of serving / clearing and ironing would also be helpful. We are in the process of transforming an old garage into a gallery so some building / woodworking etc is also possible.
We are able to do all these things ourselves however with our son now in Canada and with Lin not too fit at the moment, another pair of hands or two would be most... more inside
