In the beautiful surroundings of the Indre I try to build an existence. My farm and outbuildings are located in a beautiful place and nature is abundant.

I'm looking for enthusiastic people to help me with the renovation of the barn, the building of a swimming pool and upkeep of the garden.

In the barn we need to lay a new floor, install doors, roof windows and electricity.

The swimming pool will be realised at the location of the former pig stall, which is already demolished. The old walls will be reused as the walls of the swimming pool and from here the project needs to be picked up on. Preferably I'm looking for someone with insight and/or experience installing a swimming pool, who can think along with me and come with idea's for the challenges to come.

The total area is one hectare big (inlcuding buildings) and needs upkeep. The trees must be pruned and cut down, the garden needs to be maintained and I also have a vegetable garden where I need help with (I'm lacki... more inside

We are a young couple (30) living in a great village in the Parc du Pilat, not far from Saint Etienne and an hour from Lyon. We have a 3 year old daughter who we are raising bilingually (mom Joanna is a native English speaker from Canada) and dad Alex is French, but learning English. We would like to host people anytime. We need help with English conversation, optional childcare/ entertaining, light cooking and cleaning, gardening...
English speaking help appreciated between 7-8 weekday mornings and 16 to 19 weekday evenings. Cooking a few meals would be helpful, reading books to our daughter, speaking English with us would all be helpful. Families welcome and we would understand as parents that you’d be less able to ‘help’ and you could have lots of free time. Saturday to Tuesday our daughter is at home full time with one of us so more English conversation could be fun then too..we want fun people who will help us with our goal to speak only English at home. Alex and I struggle to... more inside

Hello!
My boyfriend Mathieu and I, Silvia, we found our beautiful spot of nature one year ago in the french countryside. Our project is to build our bioclimatic house, wich will be realised with natural materials like wood and straw. We did a lot of experiences like this in the past, traveling around the word. More Mathieu is wooden constructor and i'm architect!
You are welcome to stay with us if you have some experiences in ecological building or if you are curious about, and you want to learn more about!
We provide to all meals during the week(organic and local food mostly) and you will have a kitchen available during the week end .
We can come and get you to the train station in Gourdon (20 minutes from us) or Cahors (30 minutes from us) or in a carsharing/hitchhiking stop point.

Hi,


the photos on here at the moment are not for the right property! We now rent a flat in Bordeaux, an hour away from our house in the country. We are looking for help with childcare, cooking and house-keeping starting end of August, beginning of September.

The flat is on the riverfront in Bordeaux so it is a beautiful location in a beautiful city! You will have your own room. I will be starting a full-time teaching job in September and the help I will need at the flat will be early morning and late-afternoon/evening only so you will have most of the day to yourself. I think there would be perhaps maximum 4 hours a day requested... 1.5 in the morning and 2.5 in the late-afternoon.

Our 2 children are Hector, who will be 7 in September and Anouk, who is 4 and a half.

I would like help from someone with experience in childcare and I would ask for references.


Thanks! I hope to hear from you soon.


Tim

We have been living in the Languedoc, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, for nearly five years now. With the help of family and volunteers, we`ve been working to transform the property into an organic smallholding with small-scale holiday accommodation, and to move towards a sustainable way of living.

With two-and-a-half hectares of woodland, meadow, orchards and vegetable garden, as well as sheep, chickens, cats and guinea-pigs, there is always plenty to do.

We welcome volunteers from March until October, staying for 2 - 3 weeks. In the summer season we have a small number of paying guests, and really appreciate volunteer help to look after them, and to look after the grounds, the animals and the garden. Out of high season, there is project work to do - small-scale construction, decorating, gardening, woodland management and maintenance.

We welcome people with practical skills and ideas to undertake new projects, but out of season, enthusiasm and commi... more inside
