Late vacancy for a practical person from mid May to mid June in the Midi-Pyrenees, SW France

We are an English couple who have lived in France for 13 years. We live in a partly renovated an old stone cottage in the middle of rolling vineyards in historic Gascony, in the sunny Midi-Pyrenees with our 9+ rescue dogs, chickens and ducks.

We are a high energy household and seek like minded volunteers to help us in our busy lives. Everyday tasks include looking after the dogs -walking, grooming, feeding, kennel cleaning & picking up poo - and the hens and ducks - feeding, cleaning, egg collection etc.

We are keen to progress our house renovation and current projects include pointing walls, plastering / dry lining, painting & decorating, repainting existing kitchen units and installing, making shutters, installing bathrooms, plumbing and general electrics. So anyone with experience in building projects and general DIY (masonry, carpentry, electrics etc) is always welcome!

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

We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare permaculture smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.Helen also runs a local cafe,shop,bar.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property

Learning is a journey into the unknown!

We will always try our best to let people work on the projects that interest them the most-
either at the smallholding or the renovation in the farmhouse or a mixture of the two.

At the smallholding we are currently :
Chopping firewood
Collecting mulch
Making compost
Planting trees
Brushcutting
Clearing streams.

We are also renovating our farmhouse and recycling various dis... more inside
