We are a busy English family of three living in rural France. We love the outdoor life and have chickens, cats, two naughty Weimeraners, three ponies and two horses. The ideal person we are looking for would be a horse loving person with a good background in general equine care, also a good basic riding ability is needed as you would need to exercise 1 horse & two ponies and take care of their daily needs. They all are ridden by our 11 year old daughter who is in the competition circuit doing Jumping, Dressage and Hunter.
Our daughter attends riding lessons at local equestrian centres twice during the week, Saturdays is training at home in our sand arena and the competitions are most Sundays so you would need to go along to the competitions to help out with the usual chaos. We are happy to provide riding lessons to improve your ability from good to great which could also involve you riding in the competitions if you wish. O.K so that's the fun part !

We are an English family some of who have lived in the area for 10+ years others are more recently arrived. We run a bike hire business from our Mill near Saumur.


We live in a Water Mill that we are renovating. The Mill is located 10 mins from Saumur and the Loire. There has been a Mill here for 300 years. We have lots of exciting ideas that cover lots of different skills and are very enthusiastic to turn them into reality. We have general tasks that anyone can do (cleaning, painting, gardening, assisting in building work) and would specifically love to hear from roofers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and welders.

Thanks for your interest

Hello,

We are Didier and Cecile. Our children grew up so we are currently leaving in a big house in Chemillé near to Angers, no far from Nantes.

Didier is an organic dairy farmer. In the farm, we have a little dog, 4 cats, 30 cows, some heifers and calves. We grow wheat, vicia faba, beetroot . Summer is coming with more work than useful, that’s why a helping hand will be appreciated. You will help to pull out the weed for example. We need help from middle June , for one or two weeks.

The house is big, you will have your own bedroom, unlimited internet and bikes. could

We don't speak a really good english but we manage to exhange with our german friends.

URGENT - Just been let down by a volunteer so space available NOW.
LONG TERM help would be ideal.

If you know how to use, sharpen and maintain chainsaws, that would be truly fabulous.

We moved to France in 2008 from Scotland with the aim of living more ecologically and are passionate about sustainability. We live on the edge of the Perche National Park in a small hamlet and have an old house with barn and outbuildings together with 7 hectares (17 acres) of land. Our nearest village is 2.5 km (1 mile) away and the nearest town, La Ferte Bernard is 5.5 miles to the south with good facilities. From La Ferte Bernard there are easy, direct rail and road links to Le Mans (30 miles) and Paris (105 miles).

Accommodation would be in tents in the Spring/Summer/Autumn and in the house in Winter, and food is sharing our daily repas. We are omnivores but I can cater for vegetarians. Currently I feel unable to provide a balanced diet for vegans so sadly we can not accommodate those w... more inside

Our project, which is already well underway, is the renovation of the former Commandery of the order of the Templars and Maltese Knights and its outhouses, establishing a small size spice and herbs farm according to organic standards.
We are a well-travelled, Anglo/French retired couple (young in spirit and very active) living in a rural area just south of Brittanny and 10kms from the coast and the river Loire, after a life of travel, working and sailing in the Indian and the Pacific oceans.
We receive many helpers wanting to improve their French and provide our help to achieve their objective. We have a horse and use a couple of sheep from neighbours to help keep the grass under control in the spring.
Ideally we would like a couple for a period from a couple of weeks to 4 weeks depending on how it works out for both parties. On the agenda would be tending to plants and garden, working on old walls and installing panelling, plus plenty of inside painting. To vary things when ... more inside

We spend most of the summer in France, from April to November, returning to England periodically. We are renovating a farmhouse in the Pays de Loire region and would appreciate help with various jobs in and around the house and the land, in return for board and food. The accommodation is modest, due to renovation works, but we can keep you clean, warm and well fed.

The work will be varied, from helping to renovate and decorate to cooking and cleaning, from rotovating, cutting grass to chopping fire wood.
We have all types of machinery, sit on mower, log splitter, log saw and various gardening equipment to make working easier.
We have Internet.
Smokers are welcome, but all smoking is undertaken outside of the house.
We will provide basic breakfast and lunch, and an evening "hearty" meal.
We are 8 km from town.
The local village (20min walk) has a convenience store and a tabac.
We have farm cats that like to come and go.

Currently looking for helpers for 2018.

Nick and James (and Luna, the dog) bought a collection of ruined farm buildings on 3 hectares in 2011 and have been steadily restoring since. The location is fairly remote. There is a small village 1km away, there is a tennis court, fishing lake, numerous countryside walks and cycling routes. The nearest town is 6km away and has numerous shops, a weekly traditional French market, a beautiful Château, bars and restaurants. Despite the remoteness there is always something going on. Work has just started on restoring a barn.

Accommodation is within the recently restored main house. You will have a private room with a double bed, WiFi and a lounge with UK and French TV. Or there is a camping field, if you prefer! We will provide all meals including at least one meal out per week. In exchange for about 4-5 hours helping per day, 5 days per week, we invite you for a 2 week stay. Longer stays are possible after a successful first vi... more inside

We have smart gites and a horse breeding farm.We are looking for someone or a couple to help with the garden and general work around the property. Mowing, strimming and other maintenance work maybe! It is not necessary to actually help preparing the gites.
My husband (from New Zealand) and myself (from UK) need help in all kinds of areas! There is a self contained flat available for you to live in. Lunches would be 'en famille'. We are in a beautiful area of the Loire Valley and just 1 hour from Tours with a local bus - lots to do and see! You don't need to help more than 4 hours per day and hours are flexible. We have a horse breeding farm 1 km away so if you are interested in horses you might be able to help there too. We also have a couple of well behaved and kind large dogs. So you would need to like animals! Minimum time required 3 weeks. Longer stays possible. You should preferably be positive, self motivated and active!
We have been living in France for over ten years ... more inside

** Currently looking for helpers for 2018.

I have a bed and breakfast located in Langeais, a town on the banks of the Loire, and am looking for help to run it as my partner works in England. The sort of help I need includes house-sitting and dog-sitting, serving a simple breakfast, some cleaning and laundry duties, and other general household chores and gardening. If you're interested in more practical jobs we would always appreciate those handy with a paintbrush, but above all the top priority is looking after the clients.

If you do not have a car, there is a good train service linking Langeais to Tours, Saumur, Angers and even as far as Nantes. There is so much to see and do in this very beautiful part of France, in particular if you're interested in visiting some of the many historic chateaus in the area.

I like everyone to feel instantly at ease and comfortable. There's always a beer, wine or an ice-cream on offer! We look forward to hearing from you.
