We are a small organic olive farm, not yet in production. We practice permaculture and the olives are part of a `forest garden` which also includes 200 cork oaks, carob and other trees and shrubs. We also have a vegetable garden, fruit trees, dogs, cats, a house pig, donkeys and worms!. Living in a Mediterranean climate we practice several different methods of water recycling and have a biological swimming pool. Help is required with all aspects of a compassionate, sustainable lifestyle.
Meals are vegan, wine is served with the evening meal and we are non smoking. Current projects are harvesting, general forestry and garden management,animal care, creating new housing for recently rescued animals plus various indoor projects for bad weather. The olive harvest is late October.
Normally up to 4 helpers are here at a time, living as part of a family style community. We ask a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, with longer stays very much preferred. People usually book a few weeks ahead, b... more inside

We are a British couple who have moved to France to renovate an old building and run a b&b!

We are looking for a mature couple of people who could come and help us. Non-smokers only please and vegetarians would be wonderful! All food provided will be vegetarian ie no meat.

The work:
We are looking for helpers for 1 week at a time. For the start of the summer 2019 we are looking for helpers in the garden. Building some walls, laying some paviers etc. Later in the year we will need help in replacing a window, or installing a ceiling, building in fitted cupboards etc etc.

We are flexible on the work arrangements. It could be done in a block of days, or a few hours a day, or a mixture of the two, allowing you the time to explore the region and its volcanos, chateaux, pretty villages, markets, vide greniers etc.

The area:

We live in the old school of a pretty rural village deep in the 'real' France which has remained pretty untouched . If you want to spend your time wit... more inside

Currently looking for help for the end of September /beginning of October.

I work a lot in the summer so need a little extra help walking our dogs and keeping on top of the house and garden. Must be animal lovers, our dogs are very good - we also have 2 cats and 2 hens. All our animals are rescued. Our house is small, but welcoming. The spare bed is situated on the mezzanine above the living room.

I live near the sea and there is a beautiful lake walking distance from the house where you can also swim. Spain is just 20 minutes by car. We really are very lucky here as we seem to have everything - sun, sea, lakes, mountains....

I am vegan so this is a meat-free household, but i`m happy to share some very tasty recipes.

Pretty easy-going and have a good sense of humor. It`s not the place for people looking to get drunk every night, although moderation is fine.

I try to find a good balance between getting help and giving you enough free time to explore and enjoy yourselve... more inside

Hello, we are looking for 1 helper for 2 weeks or more mid October into the late autumn. We would like help inside and outside and with plenty of gardening and watering. Outdoor work includes maintaining the garden, cutting and trimming of trees and mowing the lawn. I am doing stone mason work which includes repairing a 700 yr old stone wall in the Roman Style. Also the helper must be able to lift and haul fireplace wood and ( ideally) know the use of a chain saw but not necessary. All of this work we do together. Further work includes simple window washing, exterior window and door painting. We are chefs from New York City so we offer great food and comfortable accommodation though we do not do cooking classes. In the summer time when weather permits, you have a deluxe caravan for your home. This helper or helpers must be very neat and punctual for work and not have special dietary requirements. We work Tuesday through Saturday with Sun and Mon off. (these days you can... more inside
