Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 25, 23, 21, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris and Angers.
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique

Hi!
I'm looking for help in my house (mostly cleaning) and small garden, which is in an allotment. I live in a house/apartment in the center of the city, about 400m from the sea. You will have your own room, shared bath with me. Meals will be provided, can be vegetarian. I'm looking for someone who will do easy work 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, either inside or out, depending on the moment. This is a non-smoking house, no drugs at all, no partying. I speak English, French and some German. I am a retired woman, active in social-work volunteer activities, in nature preservation activities, in cultural activities, and gardening.
My home is easily reached by public transportation. The city has all sorts of interesting things to do, be it in sports (water sports mostly!) or cultural activities. You will have plenty of time off to use! And I can show you a few of the more "off the track" things!
Best length of stay would be for one week.

I need help in constructing a barn/garage, which recently fell into disrepair (the roof collapsed). I need a strong pair of hands, not necessarily skilled labour. I am a retired carpenter and using the old timbers. which are huge oak beams - you would be pleased to know are now in place. I am willing to teach carpentry. The ideal would be to work in the morning with the afternoon completely free for the 'helper' to enjoy life here in rural France.
The room is a double, therefore can accommodate a couple, although a single person would be welcome. Private bathroom. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.
My house is in the countryside, your own transport would be a must. Or pick up can be arranged at an airport or railway station and then a bicycle would be available for use. If you wanted to camp or have a campervan then that would be another option.
Limoges is approx 3/4 hour away. The market towns of Confolens and St. Junien are much closer. The time capsule of Oradour ... more inside

We are a young couple (33 and 35). We are IT and civil engineer. We like playing and listening music, sciences, being outside and having fun. We are easy going, no special food diet (tolerant vegetarian welcome). We traveled a year in Australia and 6 months around the world, and we were helpers too! We like to speak English.

Hi, Danielle and I (Gilles) are currently building a straw bale house on a charming little hill surrounded by oak trees near Albi (Tarn, 80 km east of Toulouse).
We have recently completed inserting straw bales inside the timberwork and we are now tackling the plastering of the walls.

We need help to plaster the interior walls with clay, before we can work on the interior of the house (electricity, floor, etc.).
Every bit of help is welcome and no particular skills are required, just curiosity, the desire to be part of a construction with natural materials and learn some techniques along the way. Besides, clay is very pleasant and “sensual” to handle!
Both of us being teachers and passionate about our project, we are eager to communicate about it, the choices we made… and issues we had to deal with! So of course, anyone with an eco-construction project will definitely acquire some theoretical knowledge and practical skills by spending some time working with us on our house! ... more inside
