We are a Spanish family installed in French Pyrenees, we bought this farm in 2017. We live 2 adults with our 6 years old son, a dog, a cat, three chickens and five ducks.

I am a puppeteer but at this moment I renovate the house and work in the garden. I have training as a carpenter, and experience in ecoconstruction, I spent some years volunteering in a permaculture project.

We are looking for a person who can help us with the carpentry and the garden, someone who is well surrounded by nature and eager to learn, we value experience and long stay.

The different projects for the near future are: Make apple juice, the construction of an outdoor dry toilet, reinforce some points of the fence, plant fruit trees for the good functioning of phytodepuration, cut some trees. But the most urgent are the interior works, such as finishing the wooden walls, to continue the clay plasters. And the exterior works will be done as time permits, and we have the necessary materials and tools.... more inside

Hi, we are an Italian couple in our 40s, we fell in love with Provence and we bought a house with a big garden in Arles. We have a spare room with private access and private bathroom. We would like to share our love for this region with people who can help us to improve the house and the garden according to their skills. We are always happy to share food, stories, music and ideas.

The house needs a lot of upgrades as well as general maintenance. Masons, carpenters, plumbers, electricians and gardeners are needed!

After having lived in Italy, the US and the UK we decided to settle in Provence because we literarily fell in love with this region. We are more than happy to share our passion with travellers, help them discover the most interesting spots (in our view), itineraries and gastronomy.

We are British friends who own two nearby, traditional Maison de Maitre style properties, in 2 small rural villages in North Deux-Sevres, Nouvelle Aquitaine, France(10 minutes apart). We are a single person and a couple, all of whom live in France permanently. The villages are on the border of two departments, Deux-Sevres and Maine et Loire.
We are twenty minutes from Doue en Anjou (formerly Doue la Fontaine), thirty minutes from Saumur on the River Loire, thirty minutes from Thouars and thirty minutes from Bressuire.
The two properties are 20 minutes bike ride apart. We have bikes which you can use. If the weather is inclement we will transport you between the houses by car if you do not have your own transport.
Lifts to places of interest at weekends can be organised by negotiation with us, dependent upon our other commitments.
The villages are both very small and quiet, with no public transport. We do not, currently, have a spare car we can loan to our helpers. There is a ba... more inside
