Hi I`m Christine, originally from UK, but left when I was a teenager, spent many years in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, twelve years ago bought a small house here in rural France, about an hour away from St.Mont Micheal.

At the moment I am looking for some help with painting work, sanding down a floor, garden, and wood storage, for max, a week at a time can stretch to 2 in exchange for all meals your own room and internet. I am a vegetarian but eat fish and I don`t smoke so no smoking in the house is a must.

I live alone with my two dogs (see photo), in the village there are no buses or trains, but I have cycles, and will take you on trips so you can see the countryside and the sea.
I am looking for any time now until the middle of July, any questions please get in contact. I know it seems strange to be here in France and not speak the lingo, I am trying though!!!! my main language is English and German, maybe I can teach you English you teach me French.?

September 2017

I am looking for a 25yr old + English speaking helper who must be able to drive (stick shift preferred) to help look after 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son.

Need help with shopping, school run and child-minding.

Also plenty to do around the house and garden if that's your thing.

-------

We are a family of three; John (dad), Lucie and Douglas. We have lived in Ceret in the south of France since July 2012.

Mum recently passed away so dad is coping on his own and could use some practical help.

John is British but has a business in Australia and gets back there a once a year to work. Lucie and Douglas were born in Australia.

Lucie is 12 years old and Douglas is 10 years. We are a bilingual family, but we speak more English than French at home.

You can eat and live with the family, but in general, there will be plenty of free time.

We also have a forest that we are converting into an orchard if you are interested in agriculture.

I would like to find people to help me out in four areas. 1. Rebuilding the wooden sluice gates and perhaps even a mill wheel. 2. Rebuilding a 72 square metre area wooden shed which is sloping and needs setting straight. 3. Helping to cut some trees down. 4. Creating an organic garden and cooking (perhaps that is 5?). Males or females with or without children, I have lots of space here for as many as ten people! The rebuilding work is heavy (heavy pieces of timber to be put in place) but the gardening light (is up to yourself) the soil here is absolutely beautiful, rich and loamy.
Really a very beautiful part of France/Europe and a lot to see on your days off: Saturday and Sunday. I prefer non-smokers, no heavy drinkers and no late risers. If you are able to help a lot then of course I can arrange my own schedule to fit your own plan but I prefer to be out of my bed by 9am so that the afternoons are free to enjoy, but wish to find people who are flexible and perhaps don't have an ... more inside

We are an English family consisting of myself, husband and 19 year old daughter. We moved to France ten years ago. Our home is a three hundred year old farmhouse situated on the outskirts of the historic and picturesque town of Villedieu les Poeles in Lower Normandy. The town is a 25 minute stroll or 10 minute cycle away.
We have two acres of garden consisting of outbuildings, orchard and an abundance of trees. We keep goats, chickens and sheep. We share our home with three friendly dogs and three cats.
We host French students during the school holidays. I hold a TEFL qualification to teach English so I'm happy to help foreign helpers to improve their English. I'm a qualified artist.
In exchange for full board including meals we require help with general domestic duties and help with maintenance of the garden. This would include grass cutting, pruning, weeding, maintenance of outdoor buildings plus help with animals and assistance with heavier jobs.
I am an enthusiastic cook ... more inside

We are a busy English family of three living in rural France. We love the outdoor life and have chickens, cats, two naughty Weimeraners, three ponies and two horses. The ideal person we are looking for would be a horse loving person with a good background in general equine care, also a good basic riding ability is needed as you would need to exercise 1 horse & two ponies and take care of their daily needs. They all are ridden by our 11 year old daughter who is in the competition circuit doing Jumping, Dressage and Hunter.
Our daughter attends riding lessons at local equestrian centres twice during the week, Saturdays is training at home in our sand arena and the competitions are most Sundays so you would need to go along to the competitions to help out with the usual chaos. We are happy to provide riding lessons to improve your ability from good to great which could also involve you riding in the competitions if you wish. O.K so that's the fun part !

Help with gardening work. A modern countryside villa with large landscaped garden desperately needing attention.

We are a mature English couple unable to work as hard as we used to and require helpers who are mature-minded IDEALLY couples/partners or two friends. Enthusiasm and energy are more important than gardening experience, but you must be physically fit, strong and competent with tools, both manual and petrol driven. We would like helpers with a willingness to clear and tidy neglected areas as well as weeding, planting, strimming and hedge trimming. Collecting leaves, rubbish and trimmings and taking them to the local waste disposal site. We have an old van for this purpose, so a driving licence would be useful. We also have a lively dog, who will become your best friend once she has overcome her initial wariness.

In return for 4-5 hours work a day we will provide you with comfortable private accommodation (2 bedrooms, shower room, living room/kitchen, heating) and t... more inside

I would greatly appreciate help in the house and garden from 26 June onwards until mid July and then late July to early September.
Our home is 3kms from one of the lovely little medieval Breton towns in the department. There are many lovely countryside walks in the locality and we are just 18kms from the coast or the city of Saint Brieuc. Public transport is available from the next village - a 1km walk or I may be able to offer a lift.
For accommodation I can offer a nice room with private shower and toilet facilities and all meals provided. Wifi is available if you bring your equipment.

Especially welcomed would be someone with decorating experience who would be willing to help freshen up some of the rooms in the house. This includes the ability to hang paper on two walls and repaint existing walls to freshen them up
Your help would be greatly appreciated around the the garden too - light gardening/weed clearance in the palm beds and small flower border. Our garden sh... more inside

Two and a half years ago we bought Bacou, which is a beautiful traditional stone house set in 16 hectares of grazing, wood and shrub land in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It used to be a farm but has not been farmed in many years. The previous owners renovated the house to a beautiful standard. The surrounding land is for the most part untouched nature.
We are a English (Rob) / German (Julia) couple with a 2.5 year old, very lively son Fynn, 1 dog, a cat and 9 chickens. Rob is a marine engineer and Julia a vet.
The house is made up of a main part and a gite connected to one side , with a separate entrance.
It lies in its own valley, boardered on one side by a lovely clear stream and on the other side by cliffs at the top of a hill. On the property there is grazing land, old fruit trees as well as some new fruit trees and lots of wild untouched nature.
We have set ourselves several goals to achieve:
