lI am 88 yrs old still active enough to live in and maintain a restored water mill 8 km. from Castillon-la-Bataille; about a km down hill from the village of St Philippe d'Aiguilhe.
I was an art-history, archeology, and English teacher until my husband and I bought a small vineyard that we worked on with helpers, Woofers, etc., and always enjoyed them.
When my son and family took over the vineyard, we moved to the mill nearby with 5 hectares of woods and meadows.
Now, on my own, I need help in preparing the vege and flower gardens for winter in November and particularly January-March, bringing in wood for heating and keeping small trees, branches and brambles from invading the meadows. I often need general repairs around an old stone house. A driver's licence is essential so you can drive my car wherever needed.
You would have an independent "studio apt." with double bed, kitchen facilities and bathroom. I can provide meals if need be and for vegetarians though I'm not one. ... more inside

This beautiful, 2.5 hectare garden, set in the heart of Haute-Normandie Pays de Caux near the English Channel and whose light inspired the Impressionist movement, is called the Jardin d'art et d'essais and which can be loosely translated as an Arthouse garden.

This is not a run of the mill Help X destination. There is a real opportunity to learn and have a totally unique experience while staying in the 17th century Priory in the centre of the garden. Cécile Maitrot, the gardening artist or artistic gardener (she conforms to both), welcomes you to join her in this artistic gardening adventure.

Previous experience of gardening and some basic French are welcome but not essential as Cecile can get by in English, Spanish and German and will teach you all you need to know; the work, of course, changes with the seasons and can be a variety of brute force and delicate sensitivity but never forgetting that this is an artistic adventure and is open to the public. Help Xers are invited t... more inside

Renovating a stone farmhouse in the Charente department of France. We need help with many aspects of the build but mainly on the outbuildings. We are trying to renovate as environmentally sympathetically as possible, so projects include restoring lyme walls, new lyme plaster. New straw bales walls, cob and cordwood walls. earth roofs etc the garden is an ongoing project with polytunnel and fruit geodome. We have horses and bees on site.
We would be asking for 4 hours a day for 5 days a week but depending on the project we would ask that people be flexible with that, so maybe 6 hours one day and 2 the next for example.
We are part of a food recup association that saves food from supermarkets and we currently feed over 100 members from 3 distributions a week. As a family we are vegan so meals ( which are provided ) on site will be so, please let us know if you have any other allergies so we can accommodate your needs.
Volunteer accommodation is basic, but then so is ours, you wi... more inside

Description

Hello, I'm traveling by inland river barge through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. The barge is an original Dutch built peniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend.

There is a simple separate -little- room (see photo..)for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitation, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave.

The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking??? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

Kind regards,

William

Seeking one helper to help with running my tourist business here. Really nice opportunity for someone in beautiful part of the French countryside.

The house is a renovated, beautiful 16th Century farmhouse in amongst 10 hectares of wild forest and pasture land in the the middle of the Parc naturel régional du Haut-Languedoc. We are also located next door to a wonderful organic pig farm who sell many produce. There are four gites (holiday homes) in the house which sleep up to 20 people. We also have a large function room/hall.

The gardens are very large with many regional wildflowers and plants. There is a large swimming pool and children's play ground and tree platform lookout. The platform and playground are made from locally felled Chestnut trees.

We have our own drinkable natural mountain water source, a large vegetable garden, many fruit trees and a 3kW hydro electric power station which provides some of the houses electricity via a stream we have diverted here.

We live in a big 16th century isolated house with approximately 4 hectares of land (mainly chestnut trees). The property is situated in the Cévennes area (about 60 kilometers north of Nîmes) near Lasalle. The people living here are Philippe (full time), Julie (part time, as she often works in Paris), quite often friends who stay with us for a few days, even up to a month, customers (we host personal development, yoga and group psychotherapy retreats), and of course wwoofers ; ). We grow organic vegetables that we exclusively for our own use and we like to experiment with alternative and healthy foods like fermented products (making of tempeh, natto and lacto-fermented carrots). We are keen on welcoming mature independent and responsible volunteers for discovering and participating in our different activities, depending on the time of year: clearing brambles, weeding, picking and processing chestnuts, figs and vegetables, cooking and expanding the vegetable garden. We can't receive v... more inside

Hello fellow travellers!


If you want to stay only 1 week, 2, 3, 4 weeks you’re welcome but you may also come for a longer period. We have also one young horse who need to start working so people with some horse experience are welcome!


My goal is to learn English and to share with you the knowledge of the french language.
Most importantly I would like to improve my English so it would be best if you speak only a little french.

My name is Ghislaine and I operate since more than 18 years a Bed & Breakfast in a small and peaceful village in the countryside, named Saint Paul, located in the region of Vosges. The nearest big city is Nancy (1 hour) and Strasbourg (2 hours). There is public transport to Neufchateau (train/bus) and I can pick you up from there by car.

My house features a big garden, green spaces, 3 private rooms, library, guest rooms,… But It is also an original homestead with sheep yards, woolshed and maintenance sheds, paddocks etc.

Lucie and I are both working as teachers, part-time. We are open-minded tolerant people, meat may or may not be in the fridge, no smoking in the house. WiFi/WLAN.
Our old farmhouse has view over the rhine valley to the black forest, located in a little village close to the hills of the vosges.
We can use help in and around the house, just as well as in the garden and orchard. Since we have several remodeling projects, mechanical, remodeling or building skills are welcome, but not required. You can learn by helping me. And it already helps a lot, if someone takes care of the cooking. The last helper made us happy with his piano passion. Any art project, murals, installations, I am open for ideas.
In fall we harvest walnuts and use them for bakery. Fall is also the time to find porcini in the nearby forests. We dry them, just as the apples and pears from the orchard. In winter we cut trees and make firewood. In the summer we harvest berries for jam, plumes and mirabelles are put i... more inside
