Hi everyone,

We are a friendly English Family running an equestrian centre in France. We have 2 boystrous boys: Joshua who is 14 and Harry who is 12. We also have 30 horses and ponies, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a pig, 2 goats, many chickens and a tortoise! If you like animals then this is the place for you!

We are always looking for extra help. At the moment there is lots of gardening to do. If you like to ride horses this is possible with extra training in return for extra work - only if you want.

Accommodation is in a large house, a main hot meal is provided at lunchtime with breakfast and tea more informal.

We have wireless internet available.

We offer a relaxed and friendly environment for you to enjoy the beautiful French countryside and our wonderful animals.

If you have never been around horses before this is not a problem :-).

To get an idea of what it is like here have a look at 'A Saumort Summer' or 'Saumort Farm' on YouTube.

If you have any questions do get... more inside

I have a traditional small fermette in a beautiful river valley in mid-France. I am English (but my dog is French) and I want to have sheep, chickens, a place to allow people to study (converted barn) and experience the tranquillity and proximity to nature. It is truly the most wonderful place to experience a peaceful way of life. At night there is no light pollution and the only sounds are singing frogs,nightingales, crickets and owls! You will sleep in a charming vintage caravan and have the choice of self-catering or eating with me (or a mixture of both.) I will take you out to eat in a restaurant once a week. I can cater for alternative diets. There is also a lovely covered outdoor area which you can use. I need all sorts of help with gardening, re-creating an old farm pond, building work, tree planting and so on. I speak English and French and understand a little Italian, German and Dutch. I work with a Flemish speaker who can translate if necessary.
Well behaved dogs are welc... more inside

I live on the edge of La Rochefocauld in the Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine. It's a nice little town with a lovely chateau by the river and good transport links into our local city, Angouleme and to Limoges.

Any help will be appreciated with things like gardening, decorating, plastering, carpentry, plumbing - any house and garden stuff really :)

My native language is English so obviously English speakers would be welcome but a French speaker would also be welcome to give me some much needed practice!

The number of helpers I could accommodate is fairly flexible.

Children are welcome - my son is 11 and would be happy to have company.

We are looking for a couple to help tend our organic garden and chickens in the small village of St. Pierre-de-Maille. We would also like help with projects such as improvements,eg some painting (you would be living in what we call the "Hobbit House" due to it's adorable coziness.) Additionally,I am in the process of promoting my book, "Entwined, Sisters and Secrets from the Silent World of Artist Judith Scott;" preference would be given to someone interested in working with me with FB, twitter, arranging speaking engagements,emails and general promotion.

We are an easy-going , semi-retired couple, both of us writers, splitting our time between our French house on the river and the Bay Area of California. We have welcomed a number of wonderful helpx friends into our lives in years past and hope for more.

Bicycles and canoes are available for your use. The village is a great place to practice your French. ( Plus we are working on ours) This is a wonderful area for biking an... more inside

i live in a beautiful 300year old farmhouse which i am slowly renovating. With lovley big old barns. I need help finishing off bits in the house and for next summer I need help with changing beds and cleaning in the mornings as I run a very busy B&B . I have a caravan that can be used for accommodation which is in my garden . I have 1 big dog 3 cats 6 chickens and my neighbors donkey who lives in my field. My house is in the heart of the countryside and is very peaceful. It would be better if you had a car or some sort of transport as the nearest small village is 15 mins walk and the bigger town is 20 mins with a car and I am not sure how often the bus runs. I love cooking and am vegan but will cook meat for who ever stays if needed. It's a beautiful place to come and stay do a bit of work and then enjoy the area. I have an above ground pool that can be used and a jacuzzi. I am very laid back but just need help for this season as bookings are coming in daily .....:)

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.

Hi - we're Martin and Jane, and we own a group of old farm cottages just outside the lovely market town of Civray in South West France. Three of the cottages are rented out as gites and we live in the main farmhouse with our 15 year old daughter Amelie, our beautiful golden retrievers Sophie and Fleur, cats Minou, Thao and Loulou and 11 chickens....

We've been renovating, updating and maintaining the gites and grounds (and our own farmhouse when we get time!) since we moved here nearly 7 years ago, and we'd love some enthusiastic help over the winter months, mostly in the garden as well as some general decorating.

In return we can offer you a beautiful self contained and fully equipped cottage (L'Ecurie - you can see lots of photos on our website) which sleeps 2 (a double bed). We provide breakfast, light lunch and evening meals (lots of good home cooking), a very flexible work schedule, time to yourself and a relaxed, caring and fun family atmosphere (English speaking - al... more inside

*** UPDATE: THANK YOU, ALL, I have found the Helpxers I need from now until March. When I get back from South America in May, I will probably be looking for Helpers to help me with continuing my acquisition of Spanish, so if you are looking for an opportunity in late May/June 2018, please drop me a note. Muchas gracias!


* * *

Welcome to the île d'Oléron! Here in a seaside village, on the north-western shore of this 30 km x 12 km island, I live in a house that I designed and in many respects built myself. Lots of light and space, and a big, somewhat wild garden.

I am looking for solo helpers (sorry, but non-smokers only, please, and no pets or drugs) who would be willing to help me learn beginning Spanish. Stays of two weeks or longer would be ideal, providing everyone feels comfortable. (A good HelpX situation fits the needs of both helper and host!)

About 3 hours of Spanish, plus an hour of upkeep work in the garden (for the fun of getting our hands dirty) per da... more inside
