Small farm with sheep, geese, chickens, ducks and rabbits. We try to be as sustainable and organic as possible. We have 2 lakes and find our property to be a haven of tranquility yet 2 minutes to a town and 1 hour to the coast. Perfect! And we have a pool and jaccuzzi for chill out times. We always need help-, setting up animal shelters and fencing, building and renovating and creating our lovely eco gite business. Experience building is very welcome but energy and enthusiasm is equally welcome! accomodation will be in a caravan or in the house if preferred.
We are a couple with an 18 year old girl. I am an estate agent and Dave does renovation work. WE love the outdoor life, swimming and doing fires and barbecues. We love going kayaking and cycling. We are new to helpx but have had lovely experiences with "Wwoofers" in Ireland and France. We love to meet new people and share experiences and cultures and share our lives and this special place.

We have moved from Turkey where we hosted 70 HelpXs over 5 years. All of the reviews below prior to 2017 are with reference to that listing. We aim to continue our animal rescue and organic permaculture here in France.

We have a copse to restore and gardens to establish so there is plenty to keep us occupied. A lot of hedgerow maintenance.
We are a rescue Centre for donkeys and so there are always on going projects.

We would require our helpers to have a good sense of humour and common sense and to be adaptable as life here is less than predictable. We never know what the day will throw at us and so are wary of making too many plans!

We would also require and trust helpers to keep their more than adequate accommodation clean and tidy and leave it as they found it and respect our home. We are VERY particular about this as we have been left with appalling conditions to clean up on a number of occasions.

We would like help for 6 hours a day for 5 days then 2 days off. We... more inside

Hello,
We need help to develop a self-sufficient food and energy place and a culture and education center.
We are 4 adults and 2 children living in a renovated old sawmill, we produce some of our food and we develop craft to produce the objects we need everyday (dyeing, soap, laundry, sewing, weaving, hydrola ).
We are developing a garden-forest, a permaculture garden.
La Scierie is a place of culture and exchange that houses the association Nipponia, an association that promotes Japanese culture in France
We also take care of a teaching farm that welcomes children throughout the year to help them discover nature.

We are very flexible and open in our lifestyle.
We are counting on you to adapt to the place, we expect you to act as full members of our small community by participating in all the tasks of daily life (cleaning of places in common and your place of life ) and by participating in the fees that the networks (internet, water and electricity) generate if you use them... more inside

*WE NOW HAVE ALL THE HELP WE NEED FOR THIS YEAR - THANK YOU*

This year (2019) we are able to host in APRIL/MAY/JUNE only. Couples are especially welcome, as are mature people. You don't need any particular skills or experience (though in truth, plumbers or electricians are always very welcome!) - but more important is a willingness to muck in and be cheerful!

We are an English couple who gave up teaching in order to run a farmhouse rental business in rural South-West France. We now want to enhance the "French countryside experience" we offer to our clients and so are looking for all kinds of help - extending our organic vegetable garden, beginning to cultivate our meadows, managing our woodland and gardens and possibly even planting a small vineyard.

There is also work still to be done on our buildings, so if the weather is not good enough for gardening, your skills with a paintbrush might get called into play.

We are both very outgoing and sociable, so there are al... more inside

Help with my Bed and Breakfast in the Unesco Heritage town of Albi, in SW France. Hello, I am Pascale and I run a successful five bedroom Bed and Breakfast (chambres d'hôtes) in an old farmhouse in the beautiful and historic small city of Albi (45 minutes by train to Toulouse). I am looking for volunteers who can stay a minimum of 3 weeks, for June until October.

The BnB is located a 10 minute walk into the center of the small city of Albi (50,000 inhabitants) on a quiet street with fields of sheep grazing at the farm next door. I offer a comfortable private room with double bed and private bathroom. A hearty breakfast will be offered every morning. The kitchen will be available for volunteers to store and prepare their other meals.

I manage the business on my own and I am looking for help in the day to day running of the B&B: preparing and cleaning guest rooms; keeping garden and pool area neat; checking-in guests; help with serving breakfast. Help required from volunteers is... more inside

We are a British family who in 2015 bought a rambling old farm in the French Pyrenees at 950m altitude; only 1 hour from the Mediterranean sea. Our aim is to become as self sufficient as possible. We have lovingly built holiday accommodation ourselves using wood from our own forest; felled and crafted here at La Taillede. Aside from the saw yard and workshop, we also have a large vegetable garden which we always need help with, lots of animals (a flock of Cameroon sheep, 2 Pyrenean goats, chickens, a donkey, some pigs, 2 cats and 2 dogs). We always need extra help in the summer and look for an easy going, practical couple who are interested in permaculture/woodworking/animal care and don't mind helping out with entertaining the kids too (aged 5 and 7). We need help this July and August 2019; minimum stay 3 weeks but the full 2 months would be the best!
We can offer a very comfortable and private mobile home with double bed, kitchenette, private South facing terrace with shade, sofa... more inside

CHANGES COMING UP, CAN'T HOST, WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED !

Hey!

I am Marie Lou. A year ago, I started my little farm on the Western Norman seaside.
I work from field to fork, from the seed to the plate focusing (obviously!) on sustainable food systems.

I grow my own veggies (from local seeds), some medicinal, aromatics and some (beloved!) edible flowers.

I'd be happy to share my activity and get some help in the garden (aring of, collecting seeds, etc.)

I speak fluent English and (almost) Spanish, as well as French.
I offer the couch and food for a bunch of days.

Contact me and check out my facebook page!
Looking forward to read you!

QUELQUES CHANGEMENTS A VENIR, JE NE SUIS PAS EN MESURE DE VOUS ACCUEILLIR. JE VOUS TIENS AU JUS!



Bonjour à tous!
