We are looking for volunteers to help with renovating a 350 year old farmhouse and outbuildings. The property is surrounded by its own 8 ha of farmland and meadows, situated in an elevated position with stunning views towards the Pyrenees in a small village approx. 10 km from Marciac.
We are an English family with over 30 years of construction experience, particularly working on historical buildings in the UK. We are willing to share our knowledge and skills with willing helpers. Your accommodation will be in a two bedroomed mobile home (9mx3m), with shower & WC. Three meals a day will be provided, together with local wine!
The work will initially consist of some demolition, stripping out, general labouring, and assisting trades people. A full driving licence would be an advantage and there will be an opportunity to be taught to operate a digger on site.

Hello, we are Gerard and Charlotte, a French couple in our 50's running a horse farm in the heart of Brittany. We have 3 daughters. One still lives at home and ride the horses at a high level of competition. We have 2 very kind dogs and 3 cats. We have about 10 horses but the number varies all the time.

The farm is on a top of a hill surrounded by forest with a river down the property. It is very peaceful and made for nature lovers here. We have a nice two bedrooms wooden house for you to stay. We would be happy to share our meals with you in our stone house (close to the wooden house) where we live. The house is made with stones from the 16th century and Charlotte has finished the last renovation a couple of years ago. She also freshly build the wooden house and only the terrace is missing. If you are interested, she can teach you about modern and traditionnal renovation.

We don't speak English fluently but we'll do our best to communicate with you and teach you everything w... more inside

Looking for long-term arrangement, starting this Spring. English couple (mid 40s) with a bilingual 7 yr old son. Our smallholding is in Brittany, just south of Mont St Michel and only 35 mins from St Malo ferry port. Its an old farm - we have pigs, sheep, poultry and rabbits. All of our animals are kept for food for our own consumption and we grow a lot of our own veg - with a large stone raised bed garden in progress to complete our veggie requirements!

We are retired Architects and have a lovely converted barn in the Dordogne - we are finishing it now and need help building a stone wall to a dependance, and a courtyard wall in the old French style, and a pidgeonnier.

We also need to finish the kitchen, fitting the doors and drawers to the units etc, and painting the windows.

We have an active veg. patch (potager) which produces most of the vegetables and 2 chickens for eggs. We have 4 hectares of grassland and wood and use a tractor to keep it in order. We are early retired and you would stay in the house with us, and eat with us.

We would expect 5 hours work a day, 5 days a week (weekends or other equivalent days off). We have a wood burning stove and geothermic heating if it gets cold.

There is no bus service here really so you would need your own transport if you want to travel like mad (bikes available but need repairing first !)

We are willing to collect you at the start of your stay and deposit you back (... more inside
