We are a couple (Laure and Emmanuel + 3 kids aged 5 to 17) and we have “eco-created” a tourism domain in the heart of Amiens’s natural site of the Hortillonnages (floating gardens). We have obtained the European Ecolabel ! Amiens is ideally situated 1h15 min North from Paris by Train and 1h from the sea side. We have 6 hut-like cottages furnished as self-catering cottages but which can be booked as a bed and breakfast. We are offering an eco-friendly stay, without any cars, and fully respectful of nature: cars are left in front of the domain and bikes and/or boats are provided to guests. The town center is only 15 minutes’ walk away.

For april 2018:
We mainly need help with preparing the cottages for new guests (cleaning, making beds etc..), preparing breakfast baskets and welcoming guests. Occasional help with gardening would be welcomed (lawn mowing, tidying up flower borders).

In return for ca. 4-5 hours of work a day , we offer a "Nature" stay in an independent flat on ... more inside

An anglo/french couple with a 3yr old girl living in a hamlet 2mins from Rabastans (with train links to Toulouse/Albi/Castres). We used to be Couchsurfers in our insoucient student days, now we are the lucky owners of an old farm house with a massive garden which we'd love to have a hand with in maintaining and fencing. We both have very demanding jobs during term-time in the education nationale so might not be able to help in the week but could join in with at weekends.

In order to help avoid any disappointments or misunderstandings once a helper arrives we've simply lifted the basic pointers given on the site in order to be as succint as possible:

1.Type of help required and number of hours expected

Primarily unskilled garden work - trimming, planting, tidying.

Also got LOADS of potential painting projects inside and outside the house - walls, shutters, exterior walls, sheds etc

For those of you who might be a bit more handy, there's some exterior electrical work, f... more inside

We just moved into a new home, with large space that needs to be gardened... Today is almost the jungle here ! So we would welcome motivated people who would like to help us with gardening, woods, and also with some inside working when it rains outside (renovating, paintings, cleaning...).

We live in the country side, apart from town, but the beach is at about 40 minutes drive, by bus if necessary. We live nearby the beautiful town of Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan (30 minutes drive).

We expect 4 to 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week and offer a room (2 persons share one room), not extremely comfortable at the present, but it is OK, and with your help, we will improve the comfort ! We offer breakfast and lunch/or dinner if you wish to share with us, with free time otherwise and of course access to kitchen (sorry, I cook only once a day, which is usually for dinner !).

The family is only 2 persons (plus a cat, but we will welcome other animals in the near future like dog... more inside

We are Jan and Mary, a friendly Dutch couple, who are currently making their dream come true… we recently became the proud owners of our very own authentic 17th century farm in beautiful Dordogne, France. Our next step is to turn the old farm into a vacation rental. Actually the previous owners already did that, but we want to give the place our own personal touch.

The accommodation and property is a combination of both our names. Once we have received the keys to the property, mid February, there lies quite the work that needs to be done ahead of us. Especially when we aim at welcoming our first guests before the summer starts! And this is where we could use an extra pair of hands, in which we offer a very comfortable stay, an inspiring environment and - who knows - a new friendship in return.

To share our enthusiasm and hopefully to welcome you as our 'new friends, we want to inspire you with a brief description of the story behind our property, former farmhouse and what y... more inside

Welcome,

My name is Loïc, I am an entrepreneur working in the field of web and training. My wife, Laëtitia is a manager, she is responsible for a social center. We have 2 daughters (2.5 years and 6 months). We think that it is a good thing for our children to meet foreigners. We don't know if the contrary is true, however they don't cry/scream too much :) We are curious, we love hiking and meet people from all over the world.

As we were hosted when we travelled, we would like to share our culture and show our beautiful place. We are living 300m from the GR34 (sentier des douaniers), 500m from the sea (surf school spot), in a small beautiful village (300m from center). If you like sea and nature, you'll love Perros-Guirec. If you like big party, it is not the best place, however you can still find a nice place to have a drink at evening. We offer a room, with double bed and internet is available.

We want you help us for few small works (gardening, painting, cleaning, diy, c... more inside

Greetings helpers!

I was a helper in 2016 while travelling and I loved the experience. So now that I need some help with odd jobs around my beautiful apartment I would like to try out hosting. I am looking for helpers from time to time for periods between 1 and 3 weeks. CURRENTLY I AM ONLY CONSIDERING HELPERS WITH CARPENTRY SKILLS.

The kinds of jobs I need done include:
- carpentry (eg making built-in shelves, assembling a bookcase, sanding and re-varnishing the kitchen table, sanding/re-varnishing window shutters, and making and/or hanging a wall cabinet for tea/spices)
- switching my spotlights to led lights
- installing a ductless range hood
- installing a water-filter
- helping me clear out and reorganise the cellar and other smaller storage areas in the apartment
- maintaining/extending my window-sill herb garden
- affixing a large splash-back to the kitchen wall
- hanging picture frames, installing wall-hooks
- piano tuning
- cleaning windows

This is a horse stud being started, and as such with a lot of outdoors works. But mostly renovating the buildings, maintaining the fields and fences.
Taking care of the animals all year long: depends on season too.
There is always plenty to do at a farm.
No time and no taste for bad food: so when the seasons allow it, vegetables will be cultivated, in the easiest way.
So I'd be happy to have a helper who will take in charge the things I cannot do because the time for all is always too short. Soon the weather will allow it, we'll have to prepare the garden so we can plant the vegetables. Soon, the first foal will be born. Soon the training will start again for the competitions in the summer., and my days will always be shorter.
If you're looking for something new. Something different and are not afraid to be in the middle of the french country please, do apply!

i live in a beautiful 300year old farmhouse which i am slowly renovating. With lovley big old barns. I need help finishing off bits in the house and for next summer I need help with changing beds and cleaning in the mornings as I run a very busy B&B . I have a caravan that can be used for accommodation which is in my garden . I have 1 big dog 3 cats 6 chickens and my neighbors donkey who lives in my field. My house is in the heart of the countryside and is very peaceful. It would be better if you had a car or some sort of transport as the nearest small village is 15 mins walk and the bigger town is 20 mins with a car and I am not sure how often the bus runs. I love cooking and am vegan but will cook meat for who ever stays if needed. It's a beautiful place to come and stay do a bit of work and then enjoy the area. I have an above ground pool that can be used and a jacuzzi. I am very laid back but just need help for this season as bookings are coming in daily .....:)

This gite in the Ariege Pyrenees is looking for help around the garden and with general renovation work. Set in a stunning mountain valley location, but within easy reach of town with bars and restaurants. The gite has a swimming pool and the area is wonderful for climbing, hill walking/mountaineering, skiing and cycling (also the annual Tour de France cycle race regularly passes close by to here).
