Hello ! My partner and I used to travel a lot and we miss "traveller stories" We have two beautiful little girls now who are 2 and 3 and a half yrs, we are settled now in Arcachon (and trying to not miss travelling too much as we have a happy life here by the beach). We are looking for a nanny/aupair for our daughters as we both have jobs that take up a lot of our time. The girls go to school and nursery so you will have free time during the day to sightsee or make the most of the beaches. We mainly need help for picking up the girls around 4pm and playing with them until tea
And taking care of them until we get back from work,etc... any everyday household jobs are welcomed with open arms too!!! We are very simple down to earthy people, we enjoy walks, beachdays and cooking homemade food : vegetarian, typical french and morrocan meals are our usual but we love trying new recipes from all over the world. We hope to see you soon. Katy Yass Thalia and Shaïnez

We are a family of 4 living in the Gironde, 20 minutes drive from Saint Emillon in the Bordeaux wine-region and very close to the quaint village of Gensac and the Dordogne river. Fiona is from New Zealand, Niels is from Denmark and we have 2 primary-school aged daughters, who both go to the local village-school. We are in our mid 40'ies and easy-going we believe :-) France has been our home-country for almost 5 years. We live in an old house, which we are currently renovating little by little. We have had great experiences with Helpx and could do with a couple of extra sets of hands for a little while. We are looking at tidying up the garden-area, painting and sorting inside, plastering and fitting some dry-walls and doors, clearing and moving of stone and debris. We are also looking for assistance renovating a bathroom and a bedroom. Enough to do :-) We live about 50 minutes drive from Bordeaux and about equal distance to the beautiful Perigeux in the Dordogne. Our house is 5 mi... more inside

A great opportunity for experienced people who would like the use of land for sustainable, ecological agriculture. We are looking to hand over responsibility of the land for 2-5 years while we renovate the farmhouse.

We have 5 hectares of farmland, 40mins from the Spanish border, 20mins from Bayonne and Biarritz surf beaches. the land currently is covered in new woodland with some old trees, bamboo, tonnes of brambles and ancient vines (not currently in a state for grape production).

The house is uninhabitable, so accommodation will either be in a caravan or a tent.

This is a different situation to normal helpex arrangements as you will be independent, providing your own food and other living arrangements. Because we are renovating, the living conditions on site are pretty basic, although there is electricity, water and a hot shower under a walnut tree. There is the potential for internet (it's not currently activated) and are just finishing the temporary kitchen with mud &... more inside

Hi,

We are Toby (39) from the UK and Ania (30) from Poland, a young couple with an 8 month old baby, Sarah. We have inherited an old french farm which was renovated into a 16 bedroom hotel by my father back in 1990, it is a beautiful house in the countryside of the Dordogne.

The house is based in the centre of the French wine region in between Bergerac and St Emillion. 60km from Bordeaux.

Sadly parts of the house have been neglected for a few years and we don't have the money to get the business running again, so we just want to get the place cleaned up to sell.

Jobs I need help with: cleaning, painting (interior and exterior), gardening, minor stone masonry repairs, some of the exterior woodwork could do with a stain. Mostly cleaning the place up!

We can offer accommodation in our pidgoener which is a very nice and immaculate private room with ensuite bathroom on the side of the main house, we will provide fresh vegetarian food & drink to keep you warm and energised... more inside

Hi, I live in a beautiful manor house that was built in 1825, the house is situated on the grounds of an old monastery, there are two chapels (13th and 15th century) in the courtyard, the house has its own water source. What is needed is a bit of cheering up (harmonising) The work will be, painting the walls, (see photo) shutters and windows, some indoor painting, gardening, making a vegetable garden, tiding up the carp pond, cutting down bamboo, (Making bamboo art?) and some general maintenance....The aim is to make this fun:) It is a lovely enviroment, ideal for creative people. In the past the house was owned by an artist, and a concert pianist.....Now by me, a rock guitarist...Lol..It is peaceful most of the time.

In the house there are two kitchens, 4 Bathrooms with showers, and 5 WC's so one can have privacy if you wish.....

There a table-tennis table in the orangerie, and a swimming pool for use in the summer…Unless you enjoy a cold dip?

I am often asked to play guit... more inside
