We are a friendly couple running a smallholding where we are still in the process of renovating old barns to residential accommodation.

We require help for 1 week between 9th and 16th September. Also 2 weeks from 21st September to 15th October.

At the moment Anni is recovering very slowly from an operation and we need some help in order to put our gardens and large vegetable garden to rights.

We are looking for an English speaking couple (25 years+) who can help Gary around the grounds and some inside work such as painting and decorating and some general household tasks.

We have a flourishing, very attractive gite where we would accommodate HelpX helpers. This house is self contained and very comfortable and well equipped and with it's own garden. We live next door in converted barns. If the gite is occupied by clients, unlikely out of the summer holidays, then we would accommodate them in our large luxury caravan. The grounds are beautiful and helpers would hav... more inside

Hello !

We are a french couple and we are living in a small town near Paris (direct access to Paris with public transport).

We have a big garden and an old house and we are looking for people who can help us to maintain it.

We prefer to host one person at the time, and for one or two weeks. You'll have your own bedroom where there is a double bed. You'll share meals and bathroom with the family.

Work won't be hard, probably some weeding but there is always plenty of different things to do depending on your skills!

We speak a bit of English and German, so there'll be always a way to understand each other!!

We receive a lot of demands, sorry if we can't answer to all.

Do you like to spend some time in the beautiful hills in the south of France?

We could need you for helpX-jobs or maybe housesitting and taking care of the animals, the garden and the house when we go away for some days.

We have 2 very nice dogs, 6 cats, 4 chickens and about 12 cows and 10 calfs.

We bought an old farm in the Ariège department, we moved in (may 2015) and have been renovating since.
You can find our farm at 60 km's south of Toulouse. We are 59 and 63 years old and we are from Holland and moved to France in 2004. We speak dutch, french, english and can understand german. We are open minded and like to meet people from other countries. When we were students we travelled a lot.

During the housesitting you can stay at our farm of course. When you do just HelpX: mainly painting,gardening,fencing, help with woodcutting. We have a nice holidayhouse (gite) for the helpers where you can stay for free. With a new kitchen in it where you can also cook your own... more inside

This beautiful, 2.5 hectare garden, set in the heart of Haute-Normandie Pays de Caux near the English Channel and whose light inspired the Impressionist movement, is called the Jardin d'art et d'essais and which can be loosely translated as an Arthouse garden.

This is not a run of the mill Help X destination. There is a real opportunity to learn and have a totally unique experience while staying in the 17th century Priory in the centre of the garden. Cécile Maitrot, the gardening artist or artistic gardener (she conforms to both), welcomes you to join her in this artistic gardening adventure.

Previous experience of gardening and some basic French are welcome but not essential as Cecile can get by in English, Spanish and German and will teach you all you need to know; the work, of course, changes with the seasons and can be a variety of brute force and delicate sensitivity but never forgetting that this is an artistic adventure and is open to the public. Help Xers are invited t... more inside

We are Cait (Irish) and Bridget (English), and we have lived in Normandy for 9 years. We mainly speak English with some French.

We are situated on the edge of the Suisse Normande surrounded by nature and with numerous walking and cycling routes (we have bikes to borrow), lake swimming, kayaking, climbing, zip wires, paintballing and horse riding opportunities all nearby.

Our nearest train station is in Briouze 10km away. The three largest towns equidistance are Flers, Falaise and Argentan. Paris is 200km away or 2.15 hours by train.

We have a small, smallholding of just over 1 hectare, broken down into a forest garden (in its infancy-5 years), 2 polytunnels and permaculture garden, an orchard with pear, poiree (perry) trees, a well (feeding the permaculture garden) and a one acre meadow with a small number of fruit trees.

Accommodation is a bedroom and bathroom annexed to our house (although we may from time to time use the bath in there – especially if too cold to use... more inside

Host is a Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher who runs mindfulness retreats. Have just moved house so need help in autumn & spring with gardening.

Vegetarian organic cooking. You will have your own room in our house. Prefer people with experience.

Plans for 2019 is to improve the veggie garden and create a permaculture forest garden. Also to convert stone hut into a summer dwelling with solar shower and compost toilet.

Beautiful location on edge of medieval village with train station. South facing with view over forest - fantastic walks. We have bikes to borrow. Great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding.

What we offer is space for you to reconnect with yourself and nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.
Helpers are welcome to join in weekly yoga classes.

We are renovating a house in France in the Lot department. Our two hectares is being converted into flower garden, vegetable garden, woodland area etc. We have two horses, two cats and lots of chickens. In the summer we are fairly self-sufficient. The weather is glorious and we love the relaxed attitudes here. There is much to do and it's impossible to list exact details so I have described the general projects below.

THE GARDEN

We are completely swamped with renovation work and really need some help with the vegetable garden and creating the flower garden. We are especially interested in connecting with people that have horticultural knowledge so that we can also improve our knowledge.

* help develop the vegetable garden

* general maintenance - mowing, weeding, watering, sowing etc.
* September 2019 - we need to plan winter and spring crops

Hello,

We are a young mixed couple (Elisa is Italian and Alex is French) and we love travelling. During our trips we have been helpers several times and we loved the idea of HelpX that made us meet lovely people and living extraordinary experiences.
