Hi everyone,

We are a family of 4, Sebastien and Laurence, with our two young children, Louise who is 8, and Morgan who is 5 years old. We also house 2 cats and sometime sheep!
We live on Oleron Island, and our house is a 5 minute bikeride (or 10minute walk) from the coast and nearest village, Saint Denis d'Oleron. From the beach and harbour, you can see the famous Fort Boyard and La Rochelle. We live in the countryside, but have several bikes you can use to make use of the many cyclepaths/trails and beautiful beaches that Oleron has to offer.

Near the house, are the best SURF's spots of the island, you can go by bike. Sebastien is surfer and will come with you surfing. We have some wetsuits and bodyboard for you.

We need some help especially for outside work:

- We have a large garden where we grow lots of organic fruits (raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants..) so we always need help mulching, weeding, watering, mowing, etc.,

- There's always a b... more inside

Hi,
my name is Stephen and I live in a small village in a lovely rural part of France just 30 minutes south of Poitiers.
I am restoring my house which is over 200 years old, the restoration work is being sympathetically done, with that and the garden which needs work there is plenty to do. If you have any skills to help in these areas would be great but if not I'm sure your assistance would be helpful.

I would be pleased to have a French speaker as it would allow me to continue to learn the language, but everyone, no matter your language, is welcome.
I'm a pretty chilled guy and easy to get along with.

Priority work at the moment is my garden including building a stone wall (I've built half of it already)

Your room is the best room in the house (see photo) and apart from the double bed there is a sofa & coffee table.
I was a chef for a while so the food is pretty good, I provide 3 meals a day with a beer or wine with the evening meal, fresh coffee is always on tap or t... more inside

Here we are again ! We are currently looking for one or two helpers wanting to help us with the current jobs (gardening, cooking, cleaning).
We also want to start new jobs: cleaning out a barn and closing it off, taking down an old structure for heating and remodel the spot, moving stones, closing off another barn before winter, building new shutters. There is stonework to do as well and finishing a corridor (woodwork, stucco, painting).
From August 20 on, we could also host a helper who can help us with the cleaning of the gites.

We are a Durch family of 4, who have lived in France since 1992 and live in an old property in the Poitou-Charentes. Jan (1947), Beer (1962), Charlotte (1995) and Norah (2004). Both Jan and Beer work in their home office to prepare the teaching jobs. Beer just wrote a book about "Digital Hospitality" (in French).

Hello, my name is Kim. I came from England 12 years ago in Brettes to start a sustainable living project on an old farm.
I was a farm with animals but now, as I'm getting older, I have changed to just vegtables. I still have few pigs and cats. I Grow wide range of vegtables. Have good knowledge on all herbs, my herb garden continues to expand every year.
There is a lot of different work to do beetween the garden (weed, plant, harvest) the house (electricity, destroy some wall build new one, clean) and the animals (feed).
You can expect to live in a lovely spacious bedroom or mobilehome. I speak English.
So if you want to share my ideas and laughs and have a nice time together, don’t hesitate to contact me.

See you soon!

I live with my 3 children in a nice little wood house in a big green place. "La fosse du loup" has 3 houses with other people. It is a nice place where there is lot of art or energetic therapies.
I give you a big caravan with a little kitchen, tables and 3 individuals beds. In our house, there is a shower for everyone.I swap this and I need someone to look after my 3 children of 3, 6 and 8 years old, some hours or some evening.
We are actually in a wonderful countryside near Royan, the beach side, in Cozes, 10km of the beach.
Hope to get some news about you.
Naturally,
bénédicte

Bonjour,

Nous sommes Lucie et Clément, un couple de 24 et 26 ans. Nous connaissons le helpx puisque nous en avons fait en Nouvelle-Zélande dans plusieurs familles. Nous possédons une petite maison avec un jardin, à côté de Saint-Jean-d`Angély, à moins d`une heure de l`océan atlantique. Le travail que nous demandons n`est pas difficile : environ 2-3 heures par jour de ménage, rangement, jardinage,... Nous serons heureux de vous faire visiter de très beaux endroits autour de chez nous. Nous avons une petite chatte prénommée Bianca. Nous adorons la nature, les animaux, les voyages, le sport, la cuisine, et nous sommes Végans et Végétariens. Nous avons de la place toute l`année pour une personne non fumeur, qui sera hébergée chez nous. Nous parlons un peu Anglais et Lucie a quelques notions d`espagnol.
