Hello,

Within the natural reserve of Pyrénées ariégeoises, you’ll be welcomed by us in a large stone country house rebuilt after the French Revolution. Between the villages of Capoulet and Junac, the house is surrounded by two rivers, fields and woods.

Come and see a small corner of paradise and help us restore this future home and place dedicated to artist-in residence programs.

We are Mike and Sarah from Ireland and we are bringing back to life a very old abandoned olive farm in the South of France.

It's 20 minutes from Nice and Monaco in the foothills, with very easy transport links with a local train and occasional buses.

We have had the property for a while and have completed some basic but comfy living accommodation and cleared some of the land.
There is a lot remaining to do and the work is split between 3 main things; Land clearing with strimmers etc., renovation (in a very original style) of the very large farmhouse and its buildings, catering and cleaning in the kitchen from the point of view of looking after the helpers and visitors.

We would particularly welcome strong and eager helpers who are interested in either the 17th century buildings and their renovation or those interested in working on the land among the olives.

The property is enormous and we live on a private mountain with private access, there is a lot to see and do.... more inside

We are a family of 4 about to be 5. With the birth of a new being in our household, we would be happy to welcome a single person or a couple to help us around the house and the garden.

We are renovating an old stone house on the beautiful mesa of the Larzac in the South of France, near Millau. We are surrounded by gorgeous river valleys and typical little French villages. The area is perfect for people who wish to retreat in the wilderness, go for hikes, take a swim in cold rivers, or climb.

Most of our free time is dedicated to creating art, circus shows, music, teaching and cinema, which is why we are looking for help to free time for our creative process.

We live in a tiny hamlet of 8 houses so we strongly advise that helpers have a driver's license to make most of the beauty of the place.

We will need helpers for the following missions :
- gardening
- house cleaning
- preparing meals
- looking after the kids (1 month and 2 years old)
- odd jobs around the hou... more inside

I live in a house in the Beaujolais with cherry orchards, vines, horses in the field opposite - it's very peaceful here.

I'm English, speak fluent French, and a bit of Spanish and Italian. A mother of three and a grandmother, I’m lucky in that I’m still ‘with-it’, keeping up with the way life evolves...

I’ve travelled the world, meeting and staying with local people, learning their way of life and the culture.
I'm 'international', and enjoy meeting people wherever they're from, and have friends from 18 to 90.

The ideas and ideals of HelpX are great, and can help build relationships across and around the world, if everyone contributes in that same light...And I do my bit as best I can!

There are buses every half hour south to Lyon 25km, and north to Villefranche-sur-Saône 13km. The area is very beautiful, and I can show you around, meet some local people and see what you might not see otherwise.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch, I really would appreciate (your) ... more inside

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]

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

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
