The Manoir de l'Echauguette is an 18th century Manor with beautiful outbuildings and a park closed of walls. It is set-up in the middle of an old North Burgundy village of 750 souls with all commodities.

About me: I am 48, completely international, born abroad, lived abroad as a child and later as an adult in London and Barcelona. I speak English and some Spanish (and French of course). I love meeting people, exchanging, teaming-up on projects.
Hélias the Golden Retriever and Mao the Labrador Retriever share the house with me.

I would welcome help:
- to help keep the courtyard and the garden great, but also better them with flowers.
It is a charming French designed garden with little alleys, with a line of fruit trees, a wall of grape, and some beautiful old trees. Timing: anytime
- For wood work, anything with house renovation. To create one more room in the attic, or help with modernizing a barn, lots of other projects possible. Timing: anytime

I ask for a minimum of ... more inside

Hi helpers !

I'm Anne, I live in an old family's house with a huge garden and orchard. I'm 55 years old and am looking for some helper(s) to help me take care of the garden and the house which need some carpentry ( painting, electricity, moving stuff too heavy for me...). Every one is welcome, I provide a room and board in exchange of the work.

My home is in Charmoy, the nearest train station is Laroche-Migennes ( 1h20 from Paris ) and the nearest city is Auxerre, 30 minutes by car or 20 minutes by train. I can take you to Auxerre if you want to discover it, it's a nice city full of history.
Around Charmoy, we're in the countryside of Bourgogne ( Burgundy ), there are nice walks to do and some hikes and I have a bike you can use !
Bourgogne is the land for best wine, cheese, snails ! You'll have a real french experience here.

I speak english and some german and of course french.

Hello travellers and helpers !

We are a family of 7, with 5 teens (12 to 18, the eldest studying in an other city). We live on a little hamlet on the countryside, 10' far from Dijon.

There are many different things to do like : wood fences, painting, gardening, house renovation, animal care, ... Or anything else you would master and usefull for us (website creation / management).

We are a young couple of vegetable farmers, on a small farm in Burgundy near Chalon-sur-Saône. We grow with family (our baby is 1 year old!) all kinds of vegetables depending on the season, and sell our products directly on the farm.
We want to keep a method as culture respectful of the environment as possible: we weed by hand, we use natural fertilizers ...
We also have chickens and quail, raised outdoors.

We hope increase this year our culture surface, and increase our number of chickens. So, we will set up new greenhouses, and a new chicken coop.
We will also start making the transformation of canned vegetables: ratatouille, eggplant Provencal, peeled tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, etc.

In parallel, we are transforming our house a little, and do the construction of a family kitchen, and more!

We have an old farmhouse from 1854 near a small village in beautiful Burgundy. There are some shops, cafés and restaurants in the village.
We are a dutch couple, we have always traveled and worked a lot (backpacking mostly) but have decided to settle here for 8 out of twelve months. In the winter we hope to travel. We speak dutch, english, french, german, some spanish and italian.
This region is terrific for hiking and biking. Archeological digs from celtic and Roman times are nearby, so are some great lakes for boating and swimming.
We have a swimmingpool.
We do practically all the work ourselves, we have just finished fixing the roof. You would be able to help with painting, whitewashing, mowing the grass and some carpentry and lots more.
Skills and experience are terrific but two right hands and a pleasant personality are as important to us.
We have a pretty room for you on the attic or a caravan among the trees.

Jean-Paul and I live in a stone house and have, in the backyard, a small comfortable house for helpers with a bathroom and a bedroom on the ground floor and a bedroom upstairs. We have a vegetable garden and a few fruit trees.
Jean-Paul is a musician and my job was to teach adults. I'm now retired. We are 62 years old.
We need help in the garden to gather fallen branchs, cut the grass, build a henhouse and a shelter for the wood.
Around our place you can find a lot of historic places, castles, churchs. There is a lot of artists living around : comedians, musicians, craftsmen, etc. We have bicycles for helpers to go around in the countryside.
We propose you to share our meals, mostly organic fresh food from the garden.
When you arrive, we can fetch you in Cluny where you can get with the bus : http://www.saoneetloire71.fr/se-deplacer/transport-en-commun/reseau-buscephale/#.Vo1t2VKn5hs
