I am building up an organic seminar house which should be finished by June 2019. We cooperate with different ecological groups in the region to offer them a place for seminars. Besides young people in France and Germany are the target group for stays of 1-2 weeks. These will combine vacations with ecological learning.

Concerning work to be done: The house needs renovation: insulation of the roof with natural wood fibre, woodwork and bathroom renovation are yet to come. There is a 10.000 m² garden with olive trees, some newly planted fruit trees and a 200 m² vegetable garden. Only about half of the one hectare is maintained, the rest wild. We have constructed a small stable for 2 sheep and some hens we have since March 2019.
In the organic vegetable garden different tasks have to be done like weeding, harvesting, watering, attaching the tomatoes.


Leisure: There are different nice roundwalks around Fayence between 1 and 3 hours. Cannes, Nice, Antibes, Grasse, St. Rapha... more inside

I live a basic self sufficient lifestyle isolated in a forest on the French countryside. I take care of my own food and breed animals for the meat. Not all the way, a supermarket is still part of the foodchain. I started my current lifestyle many years ago with a partner and am continuing the back to nature experience on my own. Living here brings energy and connection to nature and ourself.

I am looking for help in all the things that are part of my daily routine on my place, in my house and around in the forest. If you have a talent for cooking that would be very welcome, please share your knowledge to make me enjoy cooking more. Apart from that your hands and body are welcome for harvesting and preparing vegetables. For chopping firewood together with me (autumn and winter). Clean and maintain to keep everything in good function. To help me with repairs and construct new ideas. To take care of the animals etc. But also you as a person are welcome to communicate and exchange wi... more inside

Looking for one or two happy people who would like to play with my 6 year old son. We enjoy life on a hilltop situated in in among untouched forests, streams, waterfalls, mountains and lots of birds. Our very friendly goats, dog and our cats are all free and part of the family.
You'll find us in a large medieval and very romantic, draughty stone farmhouse with 4 open fireplaces, just like out of a medieval fairy tale. We like to live life fully, deciding every minute of the day what we would like to do next.
Be prepared to use the local hot springs to wash, a hitch hiking distance away, or to heat water on the fire. You have your own kitchen, bedroom and sitting room.
We love creating art, enjoying your visits, exchanging stories and ideas, dreams and experiences.

Current projects: collecting wood for this winter.
Tasting the first dandelion, meeting people, trying to change habits, questioning rules, thinking, loving, improvising, making chapatis and making the fire. We... more inside

No Summer needs ! Only for March to June !
We are now looking for 2 helpers for june (not before the 11th). We would prefer english speakers to improve our english!

We propose a warm friendly family welcome in exchange for help in our garden and around the house. We are both working, and our garden is always in need of cutting, clearing, weeding, pruning, mowing..., and wood sawing. This time the job will be above all wood sawing and clearing to built a henhouse.

We ask for 4 hours work on 5 days a week but work time and times off could be flexible to suit all.

We need people from march to june, we prefer 2 weeks stay and this can be extended if we are all happy :) We prefer also two friends or one couple. It's easier for the job.

You will have your own bedroom with one double bed in our house but you'll have to share the bathroom with our son, Baptiste 25 years old who is living with us (but working so, he is not so often there) and perhaps with Capucine (23 years old)... more inside

We are a couple living in a village with a garden 40 kms north from Paris.
We have discovered helpx through our daughter (age 22) who has been travelling in Ireland for a few months and loved her helper experiences.
She said we could enjoy becoming hosts.

We'd like to welcome helpers as from mid August.
I hope you enjoy staying with us.
We would like help in the garden to weed, prune and plant and do some painting.
The garden is organically maintained and has been for 15 years. It is a garden, not a farm, it is located in the middle of the village.The place is quiet and lovely.
We welcome either one person or a couple. There is a bedroom and a shower room (the shower room is occasionally shared when our granddaughters come for the week-end (age 8 and 9). Wifi included, please bring your devices.

Update Summer 2019: Help needed this summer, mainly in the garden

In late 2013 we bought a property on the banks of the River Aveyron in the gorgeous Tarn region. It's relatively modern (built in the 1970's as a summer holiday home) but was in need of some conversion and improvement for all year occupation and an extension. All of this has now been achieved with the hard work of our wonderful helpers from near and far! Next to do is some tidying of the outside areas. Your help would be required for 25/30 hours per week, please. General handyman skills would be fantastic but strong biceps and a 'can-do' attitude are all we really need. Gardening know-how would be great too.

During your stay with us you will live either with us in our house or in our 3.5metre Yurt pitched at the end of our garden on the riverbank, where you can enjoy complete peace and quiet, apart from regular visits from Tara and Bella our two rescue dogs.

We know what HelpXing is all about. We acted as... more inside

We are a recently retired French/UK couple. In March 2017 we bought a 'small', 'modern' chateau dating from 1800 full of charm. It is in a lovely setting within one kilometre of Noyers sur Serein, a mediaeval walled town rated amongst the most beautiful in France with a small mixed international community including artists and musicians.Transport links are good to Paris (one hour by TGV from Montbard which is 30km away a little longer but more economical from Tonnere).

The chateau is comfortable but was in need of complete refurbishment, much of which we are doing ourselves. We can offer en suite accommodation and the chance to enjoy the superb local food and wine. Our project is to make the house a great home and beautify it to ready it for letting as a whole and hosting events. We need help with the garden especially and for improving the outbuildings and grounds. Jobs can be tailored to match available skills, time and interests. Experience and maturity welcomed.
