Hi there
If you love Animals, Art, Food, Wellbeing and meeting interesting people...and are not scared of hard work, then Le Peyrail is your perfect Help X venue for this Winter/spring.
Right now, I am looking for someone or a couple who love animals, nature and the outdoors who would be able to help me in the garden and around the house/studio’s.
One big project for this spring is sanding down and repainting the shutters , I have a great barn space to carry out the work and with two people it should take around a week in total .
The garden is a series of terraces leading to a large orchard and a field beyond where the horses and geese live. The work required here is cutting back some of this years greenery, clearing terraces of leaves and maintaining the ponds.
The other exciting project for spring for those of you with green fingers is establishing the herb beds and kitchen garden.
A little about myself ‘-
I am an Artist/Picture restorer and I run an Arts Centre and C... more inside

After 5 years on the road across 5 different continents, Julien and I have finally settled some roots on the frontier between Brittany and Normandy. Julien is a carpenter, sound engineer and musician from Normandy. I am a nurse, naturopath, massage therapist, dancer and hula-hoop artist from Australia.

Together we are embarking on an epic barn restoration, in the hopes of creating a community living and creative space. The barnhouse was built in the late 1800's and has been uninhabited for the last 30 years. There are a variety of construction and renovation works to be done. We are restoring the barn using traditional artisanal techniques with natural or recycled materials. Looking for handymen or handywomen to help out with construction and renovation all year. Skills in stonemasonry, carpentry and roofing highly sought. We are also hoping to convert an old stable into an artistic studio, for musicians, dancers, circus performers to come and be inspired by nature in their creat... more inside

HELPEEEEEEERS!!!!!


After 3 years of nomadic family life on the roads of the world and fifteen experiences as HelpX volunteers in several countries, we will welcome you with great pleasure to share our experiences on autonomy, away from the hustle and bustle of modern life!

Back in our pretty farm dauphinoise nineteenth, we undertook to best grant our life with nature. First of all, we want to establish a self-sufficient and energetically autonomous micro-farm based on ideas, principles and experiments based on the observation of natural mechanisms. Our second goal is to move towards zero waste, to prioritize the upgrading and recycling of materials. Third step of our project: to create, support and encourage synergy in a solidarity and resilient community open to the world. Although we still have a lot to learn, we will be happy to share our experiences with you.

As a volunteer, you integrate our family with all the mutual benevolence that this implies. We provide you ac... 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

Hi there!
I'm a Belgian, dutch-speaking woman living with my fast-growing puppy in a big modern house close to the town of Perpignan, near the Spanish border and some 10km from the sea. Both my daughters will leave home for studying this september so I can need some company.
There's a spare room to host 1 or 2 people who can help with gardening, some painting and house- and pool maintenance. In exchange of 4 hours of work a day I offer you a room and 3 meals. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome but should help me with the cooking because I'm not used to cook vegetarian/vegan. But I would love to learn some good recipes.
Although I love the contact with people from all over the world, I also like to be on myself. That's why I prefer a short stay of maximum 8 days maximum and you should feel fine by working alone most of the time.
Please don't hesitate to contacte me if you want some more information.
Hope to see you soon!

We are a couple of 30 years, living in a house on the banks of the Loire on a plot of 1.4 ha. Recently installed, we have many different and varied sites to lead. market gardening, masonry, small and large wooden constructions, land planning, planting and tree care, material recovery, alternative technologies.

You are welcome to share a bit of our daily life; you will be housed in the house, in a private room. We have little electricity but we can recharge the phones on a daily basis.

We eat everything, alcohol and cigarettes allowed in the house. Vegan is welcome if you take charge of the menus.

The organization of work is done by daily meeting at the end of the day, we use a table to list all the actions to take; some actions have higher priority, but it is possible to carry out secondary actions in quasi autonomy. Weekends are free, work is done on the spot; we do not ask for specific skills, but personal investment and the desire to learn are paramount.

Bonjour and Hello,

We are a family of 5 (plus a very friendly dog, 2 cats, 11 assorted hens and a cockerel!) We have 3 sons (18,15,12) who moved from the UK in 2007 to this amazing spot in the Aude . We live in a former bergerie situated amidst beautiful wooded hills 3km from the small village of Arques on the edge of the Corbieres hills.

We grow a lot of our own vegetables and herbs and some of our own fruit all naturally. We are experimenting with different natural cultivation techniques to find ones that work best here and working with a variety of mulching materials.
We have a small organic market garden the produce of which we sell in the village and to the local primary school. We also exchange produce with friends.
Much of our land is marginal and needs help to become capable of providing good healthy crops. After years of growing here the improvements are showing themselves through some yummie-tasting veggies.
We have a polytunnel which in winter is full of ... more inside

Located near Evian, north of the French Alps, we live in a peaceful village, ten minutes drive from a ski resort, which offers many hiking tours.
I am renovating the farm. There is a lot of things to do and need a hand for: painting, cleaning, gardening, digging, concrete laying chopping wood, building, moving ....usually 4 hours during the working days.
If you like an easy going live, in a rural area you will be close to nature. You will have your own accommodation. We share the meals after working together, food will be provided and you will be free to cook for your own for the other meals, and enjoy all your spare time to discover our mountains,
Bikes, internet access.
2 weeks stay is a minimum, we hope longer if the feeling is good.
Be sure you have a full travel insurance, just in case.

Hello hello my friends !!!

I am looking for people who are looking for a land to live on and do their projects...

There is a wonderful land waiting for you !! At the moment it is not occupied but it is open for any kind of project (construction, gardening, art, or whatever you have in mind). I have been living there 4 years and hosting people like a big international community... I recently had the opportunity to start another project in an old farm in the same village so i don't have time to continue the land project, but i would like to offer the possibility for people to stay, people who are looking for a place where they can live and experiment... So it is not a helpx, you won't help me on my project (or just like a neighbour), but i offer you a land in nature in order to do your own project...

It is in a valley, with a prairie surrounded by forest and crossed by a fresh and clean river. There is no tap water and no electricity. Lots of wildness and beauty. There is no ... more inside
