Our farmhouse from 1680 is situated on a hill top next to a forest on 9 Acres. We are setting up the property in a permaculture way; organic, raised beds, a crater-garden and a food forest. We are waiting for the permit to start a permaculture camping with some cabins and tree-houses. We are restoring the house in the traditional/green way, use reclaimed oak and chestnut beams and carved stones from an old ruin and work with lime, stone, clay and insulation from natural materials. We will make a greenhouse, chicken pen, pony stable, swimming pond and a petting zoo. We love our work, vegetarian food, and jamming around the camp-fire. Activities include: green building, organic vegetable garden, and forestry. We are a family with two small children and we enjoy our time with volunteers!
Recreation: Pyrenees mountains, ocean beach, swimming in a river.
We speak French, English, Dutch, German and some Italian.
please come and go during the weekends, but if that`s difficult let ... more inside

Bonjour, kia ora and hi. We are Sara, Jeremy, 15 year old Elijah and dogs, Nyx and Lion and chickens, so far, hope for sheep soon. We are kiwis and British and have found a new home here in the sunny south west of France at the Moulin. It is on 8 acres of land, some woods, a river and pond, there are quite a few fruit trees, and a newly and very fast growing vegetable garden.
We have so much wildlife, frogs, bird, lizards, even salamanders. Our environment is pretty intact so the eco-system on our land is flourishing. It's wonderful and w etry and minimally impact on it.

For the last 3 years we have been tending and taming and renovating. This year we want to focus our fruit and veg.
Being somewhat sustainable is a goal so our chickens are part of that, as well as being lucky enough to have the fruit trees and good soil for our veg..
We will love to have help end of summer, early-autumn for fruit picking and help making jams and chutneys. We hate wasting food. Similarly our w... more inside

HELP WITH GARDENING, TREE SURGERY, ANIMALS, COMMUNITY PROJECT, CARPENTRY, PLUMBING

I would like some help with tree surgery,carpentry, plumbing and as always I need help to keep my garden in order.

Also, some help with our community project. The next stages are maintaining flower beds in the village square and work on our nature trail.

I live in a recently constructed small wooden ecological house in the heart of the small friendly village of Cahuzac. The village has two classed historical monuments, the chateau and the church. Cahuzac also has a historical link with the first French governor of Quebec in the fifteenth century.

I am looking for helpers who will be attracted to this lovely little bit of paradise and who wish to contribute not only to my own garden and house but also to the small village community in which I live.

HELP WITH GARDENING
Some of my trees are in need of some surgery if you have the skills to do this.
I have a beautiful flower and produ... more inside

We are a retired couple who have lived in France for over 14 years and we live in a small village in rural South West France between Poitiers and Niort. As we are not as able to do some of the work as easily as we used to, we could do with help with a couple of projects over the next couple of years. We are an amenable and very relaxed couple who have no prejudices and are slightly left of centre in our views whilst respecting everyone's right to have a viewpoint.
Over the next couple of years we could do with help in general garden maintenance ie cutting trees, trimming hedges etc. Next year we would like to finish our garage and build a verandah money permitting.
We enjoy gardening/growing veg/and generally relaxing with a glass of wine or beer. we are originally from the North West of England and so we like plain, nourishing food and we are pretty plain spoken to boot. Our House is a detached sous sol and we have two bedrooms so any helpers would be living with us. We have co... more inside

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.

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 !
