We are bringing back to life a 500 year old French house in the foothills of the mountains that has suffered more than 50 years of neglect. It has a fertile garden that is totally, naturally organic but needs clearing and planting with our choice of vegetation rather than what chooses to grow there itself (in great profusion).

The sort of jobs that we would like help with include food preservation, cleaning, re-organising, repairing, rebuilding, decorating in the house, clearing, landscaping, planting, weeding, power and other tool maintenance and repair, etc.

We are looking for people who share our desire to have a simple sustainable lifestyle that is stress free and very much aligned with the principles of nature. We like to meditate, practise yoga, we are vegetarian, we do not smoke or drink alcohol, and we prefer wherever possible to use herbs and natural healing methods over allopathic medicine.

We aim to enjoy working with you in all these exciting projects. During t... more inside

Spring is here now finally! and i need help on my secluded and quiet horse farm in the beautiful Limoges area of central France, at Retabout, soon to be the home of some elephants as my next door neighbours are building an elephant sanctuary!. I have two horses however. The horses live in freedom, yet still need handling and caring for. I have a natural horsemanship approach and know how to do a natural hoof trim, which I can teach you.
I have got MS and that's why I am limited in my energy
There is also work to be done with the fences, clean out the barns, driving a tractor to clear meadows and feed the horses hay, work in the garden and other farm type work. If you are a mechanic you can help with the two antique tractors.

I am looking for people that can help me in the either of following ways:
- all the kinds of work mentioned above. You help me about 4 hours a day, i offer free meals and accomodation
- you help 2 hours a day and I offer accomodation. You organize your... more inside

Geraldine and Richard have owned and run a spiritual centre for health and healing on Mount Tamborine, Queensland Australia for nearly 20 years. We are in the process of building a similar centre in the Languedoc South of France where we need help with light building and gardening. Accommodation is indoors with showers and hot water. All meals are provided.
Where possible we use sustainable and `green` building techniques.
The use of random (uncut) stone and lime mortar has minimal
and even positive effects on the environment.
We ensure that the timber used is either sustainably grown or recycled.
Our aim is to create a space where groups can come to learn a range of creative, experiential and spiritual activities in a safe and peaceful environment.
We will welcome people of all nationalities and spiritual beliefs to share this facility.
Subjects which we hope to encourage will include, yoga,art,dance, astrology, meditation and healing.
We have now finished the building of... more inside

Bonjour,
Je suis une maman avec ses trois enfants de temps en temps, et j'aurai besoin d'un coup de main pour entretenir la maison, couper du bois, cuisiner ou garder les enfants... 2 ou 3 heures par jours..
C'est une maison plutôt écologique avec des toilettes sèches, un grand terrain sur les causses et une vue splendide sur le lever du soleil qui transperce la brume.
La région est superbe mais assez isolée. J'aime la musique, le sport et rencontrer des gens..Je travaille pendant la semaine.
J'ai beaucoup voyagé, et maintenant que je suis prête à me poser je veux continuer à garder des contacts avec l'extérieur...


I will be happy to host a handyman for outdoor help in the garden, light renovation, cooking or baby sitting !

I'm alone with 3 children in a beautiful country. The village is small with 100 inhabitant, and house is very isolated. It's better to have a car because there are no transport, and distance to the first shop is 10 kilometers. I have an internet conn... more inside

Hello we are Esther and Benjamin, im welsh and Ben is french, in our mid 30's.

We have created a small holding in the foothills of the pyrenées with sheep, chickens , mushroom culture, a young and in progress fruit orchard, vegetable garden and eco building projects. We are in the early stages of everything, so lots to do and lots to learn! Our aim is to create a diverse, self sufficient, and interesting place to live.

We live in a yurt which we built and designed ourselves, living accomodation for volunteers will be either in caravan, or bell tent. There is also space to pitch your own tent. We live 95% of our time outside, shared dry compost toilet,and sun heated shower during the sunny months!

There is an outside summer shared kitchen space where we will cook and eat together however it is not obliged for every meal, either for you or for us.

A river borders our land which is our summer swimming pool and we have trees and hammacks for the afternoon siesta.

Big Changes! Last year we wrote...
After the season we expect to sell the holiday accommodation part and retain our house and the Singa studio. From then on we will be needing help in readjustment with a number of substantial projects in the following months.
Well, thats what happened. We have an opportunity for a self sufficient couple to enjoy a Spring break in the beautiful Dordogne countyside. We will not be in France for a while and would like to find someone or two willing to keep a garden in order and...relax. Our garden has gone down from the indictated 2.5 H to a very small area plus a couple of fields to keep mowed. but the new proprietors could well be seeking (paid) assistance in keeping their portion. Call us and talk it through. David and Helen

We're a young (30s) easy going & fun English speaking couple, who have taken on a project to live in a Chateau surrounded by a moat with it's own Chapel and beautiful garden grounds. We have a big loving Husky DOG with us that loves visitors so you'd have to be ok with big dogs like pony size.

Type of help required:
Gardening & General Maintenance

We will need help with restoring the garden back to a manageable size. it's likely to not have been managed well for the last 15-25 years so there're plenty to remove and cut back. Theres always lots to do so we welcome anyone with any skill that we could learn from. We always strive to use all the items we have lying around and recycling them or upcycling them as much as we can. Tell us what you'd like to offer to help us.

We can have a lot of people stay here in rooms or camp outside so enquire for sure.

Nearest train station is 1h away Lavaln or Mayenne TGV. Our village is busy with shops, supermarket and cinema etc only a... more inside

Hello I am looking for people to help start a eco garden for growing food, I have planted various fruit trees and bushes and now looking to grow some lovely vegetables with no impact to the land. I have 6000 square meters to work on but also would like help around the place, maintenance, cleaning etc. I can teach you various skills like carpentry, electrical etc and you can teach me what you have learned. I would provide bed and food for you in return for a few hours work. No work on weekends and there is a lot to do when not working, nice countryside or pop in to the town (10 minutes away) or if you like get the bus to the city of Clermont Ferrand. I will offer a bedroom and food for your help. You can stay for a few days or longer.
