Welcoming helpers for Autumn 2019

Our home is located in the quite isolated countryside of La Creuse, the greenest region of France.

We have a very cozy old farm-house that has been renovated and offers simple comfort for all seasons (wood stove heating, heated bathroom, hot water, etc). There are also two large barns in good shape. In our land, we have an expanding biodynamic vegetable garden, a marvellous greenhouse, a beautiful leisure garden, a young oak grove, a chicken coop with 6 hens, green pasture for our 6 sheep.

We practice organic cultivation and care of everything on the land. We bought the property three years ago and have much to do, so if you have the skills and motivation to do some work in good company and a relaxed atmosphere, you are welcome to come and stay for a while!

The work we need help with is varied, such as:

- building: continuous improvements and repairs on various outdoor buildings, fencing
- gardening: our vegetable garden is growi... more inside

Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 25, 23, 21, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris and Angers.
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique

I am 60 years old and I decided some years ago to move from the city (Bordeaux) to the pine forest on the way to the ocean....
i'm renovating an old farm using as possible an ecologic way of doing (lime with hemp for the walls), i'm doing the more i can by myself and my son (27 years) help me when he is not working on his boat, and my daughter (25) when she is not around the world (now she is in Canada).
i began to do a vegetable garden with permaculture, i had a good result last year and it is better and better!
Now, i need an help because i have to save the old beautifull barn that is just in front of the house. The first thing to do is to take off the old tiles and redone some carpentry pieces. With a friend of mine that is a builder we decided to do some happy working days in the 7/8/9 of July, we need some arms and legs...with the heads would be fine !!!!!

We are american, from San Francisco and New Orleans, living in France for over 10 years. We have an old farm property in the Loire Valley, 10 minutes from Chinon, with a main house and two renovated barns. The larger barn is a vacation rental, and the smaller barn is mixed use, rental or friends, workers, etc. We need help with some small projects, with landscaping, and in the vegetable garden. We have a large veggie garden, many fruit and nut trees as well.

Before the season starts in April there is much work to be done cleaning up, tending to the garden, etc. Same at the end of the season. In mid-summer, there`s weeding and landscaping to keep up with, when the smaller barn is not otherwise occupied.

DURING WINTER WE REALLY NEED help in marketing our vacation rental, since the sites we have used for years have switched their format to compete with AirBnb. Anyone who knows WORDPRESS software is a plus. We need help with marketing on social media, our own website, et... more inside

Having now moved on from our bed and breakfast, in which we were lucky enough to host for some wonderful people, we have now started a new project by the river gardon, just upstream from the world famous "Pont du Gard" unesco monument.
We'd very much appreciate help in making this new place into something special, and hope to get to know some new and interesting friends on the way.

If that appeals to you, please get in touch
Update:
Having now spent sometime getting our garden started and water hole installed, we are getting on with various projects in the garden and outbuildings, with the view to eventually becoming autonomous, any gardening experience helpful, or being able to wield a spade.

Hi!
I'm looking for help in my house (mostly cleaning) and small garden, which is in an allotment. I live in a house/apartment in the center of the city, about 400m from the sea. You will have your own room, shared bath with me. Meals will be provided, can be vegetarian. I'm looking for someone who will do easy work 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, either inside or out, depending on the moment. This is a non-smoking house, no drugs at all, no partying. I speak English, French and some German. I am a retired woman, active in social-work volunteer activities, in nature preservation activities, in cultural activities, and gardening.
My home is easily reached by public transportation. The city has all sorts of interesting things to do, be it in sports (water sports mostly!) or cultural activities. You will have plenty of time off to use! And I can show you a few of the more "off the track" things!
Best length of stay would be for one week.

WE ARE COMPLETE UNTIL END OF SEPTEMBER 2019 !!!!

Hello all!

We are a relatively new, open-hearted community in the southwest of France. With joy and pioneering spirit we, a good dozen residents aged between 27 and 73, create our new living space. Our organic farm, a former domain, is located on a beautiful southern slope in the Malpère hills in the Aude region. About two thirds of our land (86 hectares in total) consists of forest, which we use gently. On the other third we run a variety of organic vegetable gardens and on the farmland we have planted fruit and nut trees and prepare our fields for organic crops and pastures. Some donkeys, ponies, sheep and horses have moved in. Chickens and goats are planned. We are also interested in alternative cultivation methods such as permaculture and agroforestry which should be realized here. Also for Landart beats our heart.

You have freedom for individual and creative projects here. Culturally we offer a music-, cinema- and danc... more inside

I need help in constructing a barn/garage, which recently fell into disrepair (the roof collapsed). I need a strong pair of hands, not necessarily skilled labour. I am a retired carpenter and using the old timbers. which are huge oak beams - you would be pleased to know are now in place. I am willing to teach carpentry. The ideal would be to work in the morning with the afternoon completely free for the 'helper' to enjoy life here in rural France.
The room is a double, therefore can accommodate a couple, although a single person would be welcome. Private bathroom. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.
My house is in the countryside, your own transport would be a must. Or pick up can be arranged at an airport or railway station and then a bicycle would be available for use. If you wanted to camp or have a campervan then that would be another option.
Limoges is approx 3/4 hour away. The market towns of Confolens and St. Junien are much closer. The time capsule of Oradour ... more inside

Hi, we are a Belgian/Dutch couple, retired and living in the Charente in France. We live in a farmhouse with our dogs and cats. We also have 5 horses that live out in a herd.
We are looking for help with the general maintenance of our place. As my husband is having hip problems and will need a new hip we are really looking for some help this summer! The work would be keeping the fences clear from weeds and helping with gardening .

We can offer you a gite with a big bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with a shower and toilet. There is also a seperate living room with a small television for English tv.
We have a very relaxed way of living and we would expect you to work 4 hours a day. Sundays and every afternoon is free time to explore the beautifull countryside. We have bycicles that can be used and there are lots of trails for hiking or mountbiking.
