Hello,

We are Jonathan and Josefa. We look after a 250 year old farm house in SW France. We are looking for 1 or 2 helpers during July 2019 to help us with:
- Painting
- Plastering
- Tiling
- Gardening
- Design of rooms and garden

This offers an opportunity to apply existing skills as well as to learn new skills.

There is no better way to learn or improve your French and understand the culture than to be spending time with the locals. There are many evening events in the local village which will give you the opportunity to do this and are always great fun.

We can offer food and accommodation in return. The house is situated about 40mins from Bordeaux and is in the heart of wine country for those who enjoy wine.

If you are interested please do get in touch.

Hi, we are Tim & Margreeth an Anglo/Dutch couple now living in France. We own a chateau that we run as a BnB with gites and group accommodation. We live in a small village in a beautiful rural area, near some lovely seaside villages and old woods. We need help with cleaning, looking after guests, cooking, gardening and sometimes decorating. You'll be helping us for 4 or 5 hours a day for 5 days a week. So you'll have two days off every week to explore the area, we have some bikes that you can use. Or you can just stay and relax in our own park or swimming pool. You'll be staying in a room in the chateau. Some days we'll cook and eat together in the evenings other days you can cook your own meals. Vegetarian is not a problem. It's also very important that you like children since we have an eleven-year old son. We are looking for friendly, hardworking, non-smoking helpers without pets.

Our project aims at developping a self-resilient place in the middle of the Pyrenees mountain chain (South France) and practicing Ecology on a daily basis.

Here we learn, share, aware, respect, accompany, shape and communicate on a very simple basis : "Minimize your impact on this planet and maximise general happiness". This is one of the reason the place is vegan.

If you want to share (or already share) this vision, you are more than welcome!

Our work consist in :

1/ Restauring an old house, partly troglodyte (carpentery, alternative way of energy production...) to create a "workshop area", where we could finaly host events, classes, debates to approach the world differently than the main-capitalistic-stream...;

2/ Regenerating the soil together with providing food to the residents : we base our work on permanent agro-forestry cycles (I am not talking of permaculture but it is); Oïkos land is only 0.15ha, thereby we are "experimenting" in order to feed max 5 people.... more inside

Helpers needed from April onwards. We'd really welcome a couple or friends to come and help us out with the ongoing renovations and garden clearance and creation.

All our volunteers have made a truly memorable difference to our lives - making raised beds for the veggies, constructing huge wooden steps in our sloping garden, painting furniture and walls, shifting rocks, weeding, and everyone has cooked us a fantastic meal (even those who have always survived on McDos or Subs!!). For that we can't thank them enough, so please consider us when choosing your next trip. We live in the beautiful and very rural Charente-Limousin region of France...40 minutes west of Limoges. Come for a week or so and help us make a difference...

We are Helen and Phil (middle aged but very active). We live in a fabulous peaceful and very rural part of France near a huge lake with swimming, canoeing, fishing, cycle and walking routes along the lanes close by, and medieval towns and villages. A region... more inside

We are a Spanish family installed in French Pyrenees, we bought this farm in 2017. We live 2 adults with our 6 years old son, a dog, a cat, three chickens and five ducks.

I am a puppeteer but at this moment I renovate the house and work in the garden. I have training as a carpenter, and experience in ecoconstruction, I spent some years volunteering in a permaculture project.

We are looking for a person who can help us with the carpentry and the garden, someone who is well surrounded by nature and eager to learn, we value experience and long stay.

The different projects for the near future are: Make apple juice, the construction of an outdoor dry toilet, reinforce some points of the fence, plant fruit trees for the good functioning of phytodepuration, cut some trees. But the most urgent are the interior works, such as finishing the wooden walls, to continue the clay plasters. And the exterior works will be done as time permits, and we have the necessary materials and tools.... more inside

I live on a farm, alone or with my girlfriend, who lives in Angers.
There's many different activities. The cheesery : I make goat cheese, that's my business. I sell it in Paris, in restaurants. You're not allowed to help in the cheesery for sanitary reasons, but you can eat cheese !
I still have 12 horses (I had 30 when I ran a horse school). They live on the 40 ha of the farm. You can ride with people once a week, only if you have skills.
Besides the horses I have many chicken, a car Marius, two dogs Lily and Balou. My dogs need attention when I leave.
There's the garden too, a lot smaller as it was, but there's still a lot to do.
My house is big. You'll have a room and a bathroom.
Internet is only in a leaving room, quite slow. No coverage for mobile phone.
I prefer one month minimum , to have the time to know more the persons and also to be independant to do the things.
I need help in the garden, with the fences, to chop wood for the fire, to feed the animals.
I like co... more inside

I run two gites in the lot and garonne and during the start and finish of the season I also run art and pilates/wellbeing courses. I am looking for help primarily with the hospitality side of these courses, running end of April to end of May (happy for someone to come for one week, two or more) and again in September. The work would involve assisting me in the preparing and serving of meals primarily and there would also be opportunities to enjoy an art or yoga class or two!

You would live in my converted barn - ideally suited to two people travelling together so that you can make the most of your down time - I have a great salt water pool with lovely terrace perfectly placed to take in the views - there are bikes to borrow and lots of walking and cycling routes nearby.

We are 4k from a small village with a friendly golf club, shop, boulangerie, etc

Possibility of also visiting in July - work then would be more maintenance/gardening.

WE OFFER: We live close to the ocean, in a nice and huge forest and close to Bordeaux (50km), a world heritage Unesco city. We have a swimming pool and there is a big one in our village. Here you can practice all the aquatic sports and a lot of others in the nature.
For an average of 4 hours helping per day, you'll stay in a private room and share our family life and homemade meals. We are flexitarian and eat very little meat, not even once a week, but a lot of different organics vegetables, cheeses and fruits.I cook a lot.
We live in a village where you can find almost whatever you need (we don't need so much). We have bikes and I can lend you my car sometimes (often) if you have a driving licence available in France.
I'm a kundalini yoga teacher and you are invited to practice with my students. My husband works downtown. He is a good guitar player and we have a music room with many musical instruments.We both speak english, a little of spanish and I speak portuguese.

I live on the edge of a small mountain village- a large garden, bound by a small fast flowing with the forest all around- very pretty here and elemental. Looking for some help in April 2-4 weeks with the garden, just making a new veg garden, also some household repair jobs- the roof needs a bit of sorting out and I want to paint the outside of the house- actually the list goes on. Would really suit someone who wants a break from the city to enjoy the wonders of spring here and some peace
