English couple, living in beautiful, rural France for over 17 years, looking for help with gardening (large, vegetable garden), cutting and clearing of old trees, help with building work and general maintenance of our 50 acre property.

We live in a lovely, restored farmhouse surrounded by approximately 50 acres of fields and woods, a stream and a little lake. We have a large second home on our property, also lovingly restored, which is rented out, fully, during the high season, to guests. There is a stunning, large swimming pool for the guests and our use.

We try to keep the land and gardens looking as beautiful as possible for us and our guests but the upkeep can become extremely time-consuming for just 2 people. We would really like some help with the gardening and outside maintenance in return for being able to spend time in this truly stunning part of South West France.

We are looking for up to 2 people (ideally a couple) to stay with us for a minimum of 6 nights. We ... more inside

We are a lively English/ German family looking for somebody to help us with our guesthouse and animals in the beautiful Midi-Pyrenees area of South-West France. We are looking for helpers from end of March onwards and through the whole of spring and summer. We experienced that helpers stay between 2 - 4 weeks, as most of them are travelling around. But it could also be longer.

We are Kenneth (58), Kathrin (50), Kieran (18 years ), Kristine (16 years ), a German/ English family running a guesthouse in South-West France, 70 km north-west of Toulouse. We are using all three languages in our family, Kenneth speaks English to the children, whereas Kathrin generally speaks German to Kieran and Kristine. Both children also speak French at school or with their friends, so we really are all trilingual. Most of our guests are also French, so basic language skills are useful.
Kenneth is a Jazz musician and works away on cruise ships a lot and this is why we are looking for somebody to he... more inside

The next shared building site will be from July 22 to August 3rd to finish an octogonal wooden structure and cover of the dome (wood, insulation, bottles, torchis, straw...).

The first shared working site (wood, clay, earth...) took place from September 3rd-11th, 2018 with 5 helpers. The second shared eco-building site (chantier participatif) took place in June and July 2018 also with 5 helpers.

Yves and I are working towards a place which will welcome people who love and respect nature, who are non smokers and who are passionate about this kind of place and shared work. We preferably would like to have helpers who are experienced but at least very motivated and ready to sincerely help out. We need to build light accommodation, take care of the garden, the water system, renovation of the existing and building of new ecological structures.

In spring and summer we offer accommodation in tents, a caravan and a little chalet and organic vegetarian meals.

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

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
