Hi there!
I'm a Belgian, dutch-speaking woman living with my 17 year old daughter and our dog and cat in a big modern house close to the town of Perpignan, near the Spanish border and some 10km from the sea. My other daughter is travelling around the world, doing some woofing and being a helper of Helpx. We have a spare room to host somebody 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 5 to 7 days maximum and you should feel fine by working alone.
Please don't hesitate to contacte me if you want some more information.
Hope to see you soon!

We are a small Llamas farm, located in the Pyrenees mountains. If you are looking for an original French experience, it could be the right place for you!
Here in the high Pyrenees, near to the Andorra & Spanish border, we offer you the possibility to live and work in a calm and isolated place, surrounded by high mountains and nothing but pure nature, and good meals "à la française" after our activities among our lamas (about 15 of them).
We are a retired French couple, but we used to work and live in foreign countries and continents, which made us interested in people and cultures from all over the world.
In the surroundings, there are beautiful places that we would be happy to make you discover, and if you want, we can trek together with Llamas...
For your own, you`d get an entire and cosy apartment, and join us for generous meals that we like to share and appreciate together (so, no vegetarian requirement, please).
If you are fit : slopes make the work pretty physical ... more inside

We are an easy going English family (3 'children', 17,18 and 20yrs at school/university/working in the UK) who have recently purchased a large historic property near Agen. The house is habitable but basic and we will be reconstructing the interior to suit us.

Any assistance with general diy, landscaping, gardening, pruning fruit trees, clearing brambles and walking our crazy dog or specific trades such as roofing, plastering or plumbing would be gratefully received.

A lot of the work we need help with is outside, clearing brambles, gardening, landscaping, rebuilding stone walls and keeping on top of the vegetable garden.


We offer you a bed, good company and delicious meals (we are not vegetarian and would find hosting a vegan very difficult). We have 2 comfortable double bedrooms and one twin bedroom available for our Helpx friends.

I am an experienced, qualified English language teacher and would be happy to help you if you want to learn or practise your English her... more inside

About ourselves…
Previously , my husband used to be English and French teachers but we then moved to the Finance world. After much travelling, 6 years ago, my husband and I decided to settle down in the South of France with our children to run a property with 5 holiday Gites. We were both Exchange Students when we were young and therefore like to host and welcome people. My family is also in the hotel industry.
Further to managing our gites, I also work in the home decoration field and love to give second life to old furniture or objects that we would throw away…
We have 3 children. Our 2 eldest kids are at University and we have a 5 year-old boy. My husband is travelling much for his business, and even though my family is nearby, I would not mind a bit of extra help…

Where we live…
We live in a beautiful area located 5 km from the beaches, full of history, very touristic and very sunny.
To give you a better idea, we are 15 km from Perpignan and 30 km from the Spanish bo... more inside

The good life!
Immerse yourself in history! Come visit the maintenance and renovation of the castle of Bresson, the Renaissance castle built on the remains of a 14th century fortified house. Welcoming and transmission are the pillars of our project: passionate about history but with a resolute look into the future, Hugues wants to reconcile the past and the present by experimenting with self-construction and new farming techniques, by developing self-consumption and self-sufficiency, while preserving the solidarity and the world that underpin his philosophy of life.

Accomodation and food are provided for 4 hours of work per day, five days a week, and participation in the preparation of meals. You will be accommodated in the rooms of pilgrims (we are on the way to Santiago de Compostela) under the roofs and have dinner with Hugues and his children... Hem well... I mean with the Comte de Luzy de Pélissac, direct descendant of builders of this monument listed historical heritage. ... more inside
