I am a 51 years old French woman who have been working in local development in developping countries where I still do some short term missions.
I have bought and moved in a lovely Farm in the South West of France, in Gers, next to where D'Artagnan was born, and the Region of Armagnac (and foie gras). The property is very nice, there is 5 hectares in a wonderful countryside surrending, in a very small village.
There are 2 horses (a black frison and a white Spanish, and 2 shetlands ponies. I host people at home for weekly or week-end stay in separate mansion where they are autonomous (no service). There is a large games room with pool, baby foot darts and so on and a nice 10x4.5m swimming pool. The place is very popular.
I am looking for someone to help me keep the place nice and clean, mainly gardening and basic house maintenance and cleaning before guest arrive, I would say 3 hours a day 5 days a week. You will be able to enjoy all the activities including horse riding together ... more inside

I'm german, I lived for more than 20y in France now. Our family have been moving a lot through France and travelling in Africa, India.. We settled down in the region for 15 years and love the area. My husband and I separate and I live half of the time with my children. I have two daughters, one of them is still living with me half of the month, she's 17. My older one has been overseas for a while and she's studying in Clermont Ferrand.

I studied Art in Germany. I am an autodidact in Ceramics, Pottery, Wool working and so on.
I choose to live in a authentic wild nature. At the moment my project is to renovate an old ruin, that I bought 5 years ago. We moved in, september 2017. This is a huge work that I did mostly by myself, with the precious help of friends and travellers.

My approach in a few words is to : recycle, ecologically, selfmade, artistic, preserve the beauty of the old traditional place..
So the project is also an artistic expression for every solution I have to ... more inside

We discovered HelpX a while ago & we thought what a great idea to help us make progress with our renovation of stone buildings which make up a hamlet here in the middle of France.
We have lived here for 18 years with our 2 sons ( 18 & 22) having met in Amsterdam. They are bilingual in French & English & one of us speaks good Dutch but has little practice.
Three of the buildings are finished (our home & 2 holiday rentals) plus a wagon we rent out. We have 5 hectares of woodland & pastures, that surround the buildings, that need to be maintained. (This is where joining helpX comes in). To give you a better idea of what we are trying to achieve please look at our website.
We all enjoy meeting new people. We have travelled quite a bit & are happy to share our experiences & knowledge with others.
We're looking for help in developing & maintaining our extensive grounds & woodland. Helpers could stay in our wagon- depending on bookings. We have free wifi & cooking facilities.

Hello, we are Elsa (24) and Eric (51). We are living in a small village “le Mont Dol” with a really nice view to the “Baie du Mont Saint Michel” in north Britany and are renovating our home build in 1729 as well as an old farm bilding with a stone oven. Both sides are at 1,2km each.

Our home is only 6 km from Dol de Bretagne were you find the next train station.
Dol de Bretagne is 25 km far from Saint-Malo or Cancale.
We speak french, english and german (Elsa is german) and Eric is french and was a teacher for 19 years. We can help you to improve your french.
We propose one of our bicycles to move from Dol de Bretagne to le Mont Dol, so it gives you the possibility to move independently.
