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.

Who want to be harvest some grappes ?

Hey everyone!

Originally from Belgium, I got into wine through travels and finally settle my luggage to take over a beautifull 9ha vineyard in an excellent terroir of Bordeaux area.

A nice chance for people curious about wine to learn more about it and for those who simply like having some physical excercice in an amazing nature ;-)
For now, we`re looking for enthusiastic winelovers to give us a hand with day to day vine jobs...

For now, we need some help to pick and sort grappes from 22nd september until the 6 of october...

Hope to cross your way in the vine soon !

Julien

Bonjour amis Helper,

Ludovic et Lily (45 et 34 ans), récemment reconvertis dans le domaine de l'horticulture proposent à la clientèle des plants de fleurs et de légumes de saison. En dehors des périodes de vente il y a la mise en culture, la taille et l'entretien des plants ainsi que le rangement, le tri et la réorganisation des matériaux et de la serre. Lors des saisons de vente les serres sont ouvertes au public 5 jours par semaine et nous faisons également entre 1 et 3 marchés par semaine.

Situé dans un petit écrin de verdure, au calme, proche de la rivière La Vienne, ainsi que de lacs de pêche, vous serez comme un poisson dans l'eau si vous appréciez les longues balades à pied, à vélo (que nous mettons à votre disposition) ou en canoë-kayac.
Nous vivons très exactement sur la commune LES ORMES, dans la Vienne (86) à la sortie du village.

Pour votre confort et votre intimité, vous serez logés dans une caravane vintage située à une 30aine de mètres de la maison où tous ... 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

We live in a late 18th century chateau which we are in the process of renovating.

We are looking for help between now and the end of October on various jobs in the grounds of our Chateau. Mainly involves clearing and chopping up fallen timber, clearing over grown areas of weed and low shrubs. Some weeding of beds and taking down Virginia creeper. There are some tiles to move out of an old barn and to stack elsewhere and gravel to move.

If you are up for this and other heavy maintenance work we have a self-catering gite in the grounds but we will provide the food for you to cook as you wish. There is internet and French TV in the gite. The kitchen is fully equipped including dish washer, washing machine and fridge/freezer. We speak both English and French.

We are located in the Aude valley of Languedoc in an area famous for the Cathar crusade. We are just off the Autoroute Des Deux Mers. Toulouse is 50km away and Carcassonne is 30km. La Cite the medeaval walled city and fo... 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
