I need a handyman/woman and some to help with my small but rampant garden.

We live in a large property in rural Normandy, in a small village opposite a medieval church. William the Conqueror used to have a chateau here but it has long gone now.

We are Mum, Scarlett 26, Morgan 21 and Oliver 19. The kids are away working or at uni most of the time.

We have a small project teaching English as a foreign language to students which is very rewarding.

Everyone, family and helpers, join in with the cleaning and washing up.

I need people who know how to paint walls and doors, (drip free), and people who are good at giving the place a jolly good deep clean.

We have a small garden that needs constant attention. Everything grows like crazy here. We need people who know the difference between a plant and a weed.

We are fun and easy going and treat our helpers as part of the family.

We are not far from the golden beaches at Granville/Ca... more inside

Si découvrir et participer à la vie d`une ferme paysanne et pédagogique vous tente, alors rejoignez nous.
Ici le travail est, pour grande partie, exécuté manuellement et en traction animale.

Stay in a traditional restored 18th Century granite farmhouse with 20 acres of wooded countryside and farmland. Nestled high up on the side of a gentle valley that slopes down to a brisk tributary, the River Dathee.

Primarily to assist with the household upkeep and some garden maintenance (weather permitting) requirement which is ongoing. An ability to undertake light manual work inside and outside also would be welcomed.

A private double bedroom is provided with shared living room, kitchen and bathroom facilities.
La Vauverdiere is 90 mins drive from the ports of Caen, Cherbourg and St Malo or two hours by train from Paris to Vire (11kms from La Vauverdiere.

There is good internet access here so there is WiFi etc available 24/7. Comfortable living conditions, an informal tranquil lifestyle. Close enough to Vire not to be remote and close enough to the village so as not to be secluded.

Help in Normandy

We are particularly looking for help with outside stuff, and maybe some painting. Minimum stay 2 weeks, and the longer the better in general. We are happy to have people anytime of the year.

We are coming to the end of the major renovation project that is our 14th century home. We moved in in May 2017, and have been working ridiculously hard to try and finish the house, while setting up our small holding, with sheep, horse, ducks, chickens and cats.

We are a bilingual French/English family with 4 kids (13, 12,12, 9). Since 2010 we have had over 50 helpers, with quite a few staying for over a year (and some over 2 years) which has been fabulous.

This stay would really suit a couple or 2 friends, so that you have company as we are out all day and away pretty regularly. Or someone happy with their own company, and good at visiting by themselves. We do our best to insure that if you need a car then there is one available.

The principal reason we are cu... more inside

We are an English family living in France, working parents, with one child at home. We live just outside a small market about 1 hour away from Mont St Michel & Caen, 1.5 hrs from port of Cherbourg, 3 hours from Paris....

I now run an English shop epicerie & make cakes and help is often needed here. When at home we need help mostly with gardening, some decorating and general housework but there's lots of time off. You would be included as another family member, with your own room, or if there's more of you I have a gite which is available occasionally. Use of internet also available(wifi)......

I am becoming very busy with work and events, and most of our previous helpers have enjoyed quite a lot of social time with us and friends. Once the daily jobs are done, some meal prep & now tearoom prep, there's loads of time left for you!!!! The only thing we don't like is people wasting our time, if you are fun, enjoy having a laugh, hardworking, non smoking, interested in people, ... more inside

Hi I`m Christine, originally from UK, but left when I was a teenager, spent many years in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, twelve years ago bought a small house here in rural France, about an hour away from St.Mont Micheal.

At the moment I am looking for some help with painting work, sanding down a floor, garden, and wood storage, for max, a week at a time can stretch to 2 in exchange for all meals your own room and internet. I am a vegetarian but eat fish and I don`t smoke so no smoking in the house is a must.

I live alone with my two dogs (see photo), in the village there are no buses or trains, but I have cycles, and will take you on trips so you can see the countryside and the sea.
I am looking for any time now until the middle of July, any questions please get in contact. I know it seems strange to be here in France and not speak the lingo, I am trying though!!!! my main language is English and German, maybe I can teach you English you teach me French.?

Hello, we are a belgian couple (Kim, 34 and Oliver, 45) who started a sustainable living project 6 years ago on a small old farm with a ciderorchard and a lovely little stream. We also have a daughter Lila (5 years old).

A big permaculture garden is giving us a lot of delicious fruit and veggies, two adorable donkeys are maintaining the grass and the chickens give us eggs.

By now we’ve accumulated a zoo consisting of one dog, two donkeys, three cats, four guinea pigs , lots of chickens and an uncertain amount of goldfish!

While Oliver is a sensitive soul, who loves gardening, the art of tai chi and talking about the world behind the scenes, Kim is a passionate mommy, healer and scientist who also enjoys the beauty of nature and arts, right now she's working long hours at the coast. Lila is a homeschooled little miss, who's enjoying living close to nature, and exploring the world!

RIGHT NOW we are looking for somebody to help us pick and freeze the cherries and berries ... more inside

We are an English family consisting of myself, husband and 19 year old daughter. We moved to France ten years ago. Our home is a three hundred year old farmhouse situated on the outskirts of the historic and picturesque town of Villedieu les Poeles in Lower Normandy. The town is a 25 minute stroll or 10 minute cycle away.
We have two acres of garden consisting of outbuildings, orchard and an abundance of trees. We keep goats, chickens and sheep. We share our home with three friendly dogs and three cats.
We host French students during the school holidays. I hold a TEFL qualification to teach English so I'm happy to help foreign helpers to improve their English. I'm a qualified artist.
In exchange for full board including meals we require help with general domestic duties and help with maintenance of the garden. This would include grass cutting, pruning, weeding, maintenance of outdoor buildings plus help with animals and assistance with heavier jobs.
