My husband is Australian and I'm french.
We own an old farmhouse near Marciac in the Gers, that we fully restored already. We need a bit of help for garden tidying and inside painting and old stone pointing maybe.
We're looking forward to having some helping guests who can enjoy our beautiful countryside and our lovely house.
We offer an accommodation area with an ensuite bedroom and a sitting area with a fridge and a simple cooking facility, located at the other end of the house with a separate entrance. We'll provide breakfast and one meal a day in exchange of 4 hours of work a day. Vehicle is required. Help needed after mi may.

Mon mari est australien et je suis française.

We're a family with two daughters (8 and 11 years old). We live in a large house with a large garden.
We live in the east France mountains countryside named " les Vosges ".
Our jobs are optician and speech-therapist...but we're both in the process of retraining.

The full family hope to meet people from everywhere. We would like a viewpoint on the world and other cultures for us and our children. Learn better english by these exchanges is also very nice (but it's easier if you speak few words in french for our daughters). We are not vegetarian.


I like painting, drawing, sewing, books, beer, associative life... and i like spent time with children at home to play, to do DIY...
We enjoy music. My husband plays bass (and we have a few instruments at home)and he practices Krav-Maga

So we look for open-minded people, who like children, a simple way of life, art and countryside... It's better for us if you have a few words in french or at less the desire to learn a bit frenc... more inside

This château was built and rebuilt between 1600 and 1850. The castle was owned by a famous chemist, physicist, botanic and alchemist.
4000sqm castle
1000sqm outbuildings (orangery, horse stables - 4 horses, office shed, gatehouse ...)
Situation: roofs in order, no moisture in basements or walls - only occasionally leaky pipes, so nothing that can not be easily put in order.
Formerly an asylum for lunatics was housed in the castle,
We want to provide a stylish ambience for weddings and overnight guests. We love abandoned châteaus, but they should be habitable.
We do not want a “should look like that" style. We maintain our own style, i.e. we need someone helping us to turn the castle into a magnificent swan - freestanding bathtubs in large rooms with views out French windows into a 26 ha park yet to be cared for.

What we need: Nice people from all over the world, that can do the tasks mentioned above with us - and please as soon as possible!!
What do we offer: everything... more inside

My old farmer house is a peaceful retreat with a true spirit of Alsace. Nestling in a small village: Birlenbach - near the German border.
I`m german and I live in my house and the garden with my two cats.
In summer I rent the house to guests and stay in my summer-rooms, so I have in this time not a separate room for helpers. But I am happy when helpers come in the time betwenn October 2019 to 15 May 2020.
I am a very creativ woman and I enjoy a good cooking for my summerguests, my friends and also for my helpers. I need them for not too hard works 4 hours daily: they help me in the garden and the house, and it`s good if they can do small renovations.

We run a boutique guest house in this beautiful and rural part of South West France. We're looking for hard working, easy going people to assist and contribute to general DIY, gardening and in season (MAY-SEPT) help with breakfast service and cleaning of guest rooms.

Helpers need to have a sunny disposition as you maybe 'front of house' Previous hospitality experience is beneficial :)

The work in the summer would particularly suit two girls travelling together (shared room) or a couple. Outside of the season the work is more DIY and garden focused and we can host solo travellers as well as friends/couples.

We are able to offer stays of two weeks outside of the season and between May-Sept we need people to stay for minimum 8 weeks.

Generous meals/food to cook provided throughout your stay.

Our house is secluded so own transport would be a major bonus , however we are happy once or twice a week to offer lifts to the station and you would be welcome to hop in wi... more inside

Bonjour,
Après avoir été helpeurs dans différents pays lors de nos voyages (Australie, Amérique Nord-Sud), nous sommes rentrés et avons acheté nous-mêmes une maison que nous sommes en train de rénover doucement mais surement. On aimerait, en souvenir de nos fabuleux échanges, retrouver l'esprit aventurier des voyageurs. Vous êtes les bienvenus pour du Help Exchange chez nous!
Toute aide est possible, pour les travaux de la maison, le jardin et les nouvelles idées...
En échange de 3,5h d'aide par jour, nous proposons de faire découvrir un coin du Périgord magnifique, Brantome, la Venise du Périgord, située à 30 min à pied de notre maison au milieu des bois. Il est aussi possible de se ressourcer, profiter de l'environnement préservé, ou bien de visiter les alentours (châteaux, grottes, marchés typiques, jardins etc...). Nous sommes partants pour des balades
L'accueil est possible dès les beaux jours car il est nécessaire de dormir en tente, la vie étant minimaliste le temps des t... more inside

Hi
We're now three families living here, on the land and in our huge barn, part of which has been transformed into living spaces. In order of arrival:
Roland and Lucy with Etienne (13, here part-time)
Eloise and Manu with Livio (3) and Soë (4months)
Elodie and Otmane with Lia (3months)
All French except Lucy who's originally British. We speak French and English and a bit of Spanish.

We have plenty of things to do and share.... ecological building and renovation – for both living and shared spaces; veg garden, orchard, chickens, ducks...

We welcome volunteers from April to October (we lack heated sleeping space for winter guests).

Our homes are already been partly built, with lots of help from friends and volunteers, but there is still plenty to do both within the barn (flooring with underfloor heating, earth plaster on a compressed earth and straw wall, wood finishings...) and on the land (creating a living space in a wooden cabin, building a sauna...). Then there'... more inside

OUR PROJECT = Rehabilitation of a old stone farmhouse in the forest/ working on our vegetable garden & creating water bassins

As a family we started to change our life style to a more responsible one ( re-use of materials, less waste, vegetarian food). We are learning continuously and like to share experiences and pass a message to our kids.

We are converting a small (abandoned for over 60 yrs) farmhouse into a sustainable living accommodation. We love to share our experience with people who would like to share their experiences with us in return.

Some of our kids are regularly wooffing in other parts of the world.


We live in the South of France between Provence and Ardèche area at the border of the "Cevennes" mountains/natural park area. A beautiful natural environment, but not isolated. We have two little goats, cats and chicken and a friendly dog called 'Noek'. There is lively family atmosphere with kids from 11 to 23 years old. Mixed culture (Dutch, French) a... more inside
