Hi, we are Anna, baby Aélïa, Jonathan and his parents Serge & Bernadette, renovating an old stones house. There is also a small organic garden, a little vineyard land with fruit trees, and our sleeping cat.
Help will be warmly welcomed for renovating the house and embellish the garden.

We use to ask about 5h30 of help of work each day, 5 days per week.
The time of cooking is not counted as time of work. We all cook together and/or share the usual household tasks.

French, English, Spanish, Czech, Vegetarian spoken ;) [that means that we are vegetarians and provide vegetarian's food -and yes...it's made with love]

Salut tout le monde ! Nous sommes une petite communauté, Jonathan, avec mes parents Serge & Bernadette, et Anna et notre bébé Aélïa.
Nous restaurons une ancienne maison en pierres en utilisant des méthodes écolo/traditionnelles et/ou le bon vieux système D. Nous cultivons de façon naturelle un petit jardin et un... more inside

Weclcome to a 16 acres parc located within the northern areas of Marseille. Its a place with an incredible view : the sea, the small villages still there, the hills..
Its also the place where you can see the big Marseille, Hollywood style !

For three years we've been working on improving this place, with the inhabitants, to make it more enjoyable and available for people all around the parc. We met, discussed, walked and organized events to learn how to get to know each other and see what was this space all about. Many stories and great biodiversity developed there. One of the most interesting things is that this space is in the middle of the northern areas of Marseille which often have bad press in the medias. But what we learned working here is that its also a fascinating area with so many great stories and landscapes.

Our goal, in inviting help'x to join, is to share what are these areas like, with their deep hospitality, history, and local productions (tiles, honey, soap... more inside

My name is Josie and I have a small holding here in Frances best kept secret, here at La Menantelliere in the Deux Sevres south west France. I am looking for help with a couple of projects, which require help with decorating and gardening. I would like to invite you to my little slice of heaven. In exchange for your services I am a very good cook and happy to introduce you to yoga, meditation and pranayama.

Throughout the year we are constantly working in the garden, woodland and potager, and working in the house and gite. We grow organically and work with permaculture and huglekulture systems. I am a strong advocate of reducing my carbon foot print on the earth through recycling, composting and being self sufficient most of the year from the potager.

I am in the middle of restoring the house which is over 100 years old, the restoration work is being sympathetically done, I would like to have someone to help around the house, I could do with help in carpentry, some plumbing, p... more inside

We are a French English couple.
We grow aromatic and medicinal plants which we have distilled locally into essential oil. These are lavender, lavandin, thyme, savoury and rosemary. We have beehives and collect honey from the bees and make different products with the bees wax and honey.
URGENT! We are hosting a meal in the lavender field for 100 guests as part of my son’s wedding weekend on 30 June and need three or four helpers to work with us to prepare and serve and then clear up after. It will be a beautiful event and lots of fun to be part of.
We also have an orchard of persimmons which we plan to dehydrate using our solar drying room which we are just putting the finishing touches to.
We are looking for help on the land as well as painting and decorating and small carpentry jobs.
We live in a beautiful area near a spectacular river gorge, medieval villages and only a short bus ride from Montpellier beyond which is the coast.
We’re looking for enthusiastic helpers as soon ... more inside

I live in a pretty village at the foot of the Alpilles, with a nice garden and a view of the hills. And cities like Saint Remy de Provence or Salon de Provence are 15/20 km away, the nearest sea is 35 km! And the beach I prefer is 1 hour drive.
There are many walks and nice excursions to do here.

I need help:
- Paint and coatings in my home, walls and ceilings
- Take care of organic permaculture garden, maintain, sow, plant, etc ... also help me to go for straw or manure for example
- Possibly ask tiling if you really have the skills.

I live part-time with my 5 year old daughter, and she will certainly want to play with you, and it can be a help for me when I have some work to do.

So, if you feel like it, I will gladly accept your help.
I also tell you that we eat vegetarian.

See you soon
Marie Hélène

We are an English family living on a former Breton cider farm set in 18 hectares, which is now our home with 5 gites for summer visitors.
We have 2 dogs.
We are surrounded by beautiful countryside and stunning beaches (20 beaches within 30 minutes of our home) as well as being 45 minutes away from the cities of Brest and Quimper.
We aim to offer our guests a slower pace, with time and opportunities to appreciate the simpler things in life.
In the grounds we have a kitchen garden, a swimming pool, a sandpit, various children's hideaways, a fairy glade and a small wood so there's plenty of opportunity for outdoor activity especially in the garde! We also need help with housekeeping and laundry and welcome helpers who are enthusiastic and easy going and enjoy working as part of a team.
At various times of the year we need help preparing the gîtes for our visitors - painting, repairs and cleaning, strimming, brush cutting, gardening and mowing. During the peak season weekends ... more inside

Hi Helpers!

So glad you came across my listing!

Would you like to come and stay in a beautiful French vineyard home?

I am looking for someone with plumbing skills and tiling/decorating skills to refit 4 small shower rooms 2.5m x 2.5m. All the plumbing is in place, so it is a matter of taking out the old and replacing in the same position, tile floor and walls. Any time now until October.


Also, I would love a pizza oven in the garden, maybe someone out there would like to come and make one for me!

There are always odd jobs to be done, so if you have carpentry, painting and decorating or repairing stone walls skills and you would like to stay I can always find you something to do. Just get in touch.

A bit about us:-

We are a family home located in a vineyard surrounded by rolling vines in the most beautiful part of South West France. From time to time we also need help with maintenance in the garden, in the house and when we have guests. We are 30 mins away fr... more inside

Hello :) I'm a mom of two wonderful twin babies...I live alone with them in my little house, 5 minutes from a nice atlantic coast city called La Rochelle. I'm looking for helpers, because life alone with 2 young babies is sometimes hard...I just need someone 2-3 hours per day, mostly between noon and 2pm, and between 6 and 8pm...just to keep an eye on the babies while I take my shower, to cook if I didn't have the time to do it, same thing for dishwashing and house keeping... We will work out the schedule together, it will depend on my needs and your activities during your free time... you can be lodged but not fed, I have a room for you. and you are free to do whatever you like all along your stay, as long as you are not noisy from 8pm as the babies need calm ... I prefer if you stay at least 2 weeks, but you can contact me even if it's just for one week...or several months ;) I speak english, and just a little bit spanish. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want more information ... more inside

Salut,

Nous sommes installés depuis août 2016 dans une magnifique ferme en grès rose dans le Nord de l'Aveyron. Nous y avons déjà accueillis 2 chat,un chien, 2 ânes, 3 chèvres et 10 poules. Nous avons aussi planté un vaste verger et un potager en permaculture.

Mais nous avons encore du pain sur la planche pour mettre en place une ferme permaculturelle et pédagogique: entretenir le potager et le verger, mieux isoler la maison, accueillir d'autres animaux, organiser le système d'eau et d'énergie...

Notre mode de vie est très simple, produisant le moins de déchet possible en utilisant beaucoup de récup' et de recyclage. Nous n'avons pas de TV, frigo (sauf au cœur de l’été) et Internet uniquement par le téléphone mobile. Nous utilisons des toilettes sèches, cuisinons uniquement au bois et utilisons du savon naturel. Il n'y a pas de transport public depuis la ville, nous faisons du stop ou du covoiturage. Il y a une rivière au village (40 min à pied) et une cascade à 7km...

Hello,

We are an Equestrian center in the heart of Corsica, and we are looking for helpers for several tasks around horses and vegetable garden (which is in permaculture): as feeding horses, riding depending on your horse-riding level, in the garden : seeding, picking, watering & maintaining.
The person in charge of the garden could be away for horse trail riding, so you might be independent, but the center is really huge so there is always people around to keep you company and help you in any case.

As a equestrian center with a garden, there are plenty of different task to do, you will be free to choose what you would like to do. It will depend of you : if you prefer to work with horses, or around the garden or both.

You will be fed and housed on the center which is in the middle of nature surrounded by mountains and rivers. The closest town, named Corte, is about 5 min driving, and is very popular and touristic. The area is breathtaking ! There are plenty of activities... more inside
