Beautiful watermill always in the need of a touch up.
We have a great property in the French countryside, 30mins from the beach. Very peaceful and ressourceful.
We run a gite complex with 6 cottages (which sleep between 4 to 15 people each), big garden with trees, games and swimming-pool!
It's best to have a car to get out and about a bit, but there is plenty to do here and we can arrange to collect from train station.
We are looking for help with gardening, painting, clearing/tidying up, putting in little flooring and skirting boards, plasterboarding (joints), website updating, building a composting toilet, building a very big palet lounge...
Must be fit, as we live on the top floor of the mill ! When we are fully booked : we have one spare bedroom. A shared big bathroom (bath, shower and 2 bassins), a separate toilet also to share. Otherwise, we have plenty of rooms to spread out in, no problem !
We have a friendly cat, Atlas and some chickens !
Thanks
Alyssa (27) & Nicola... more inside

Hello,

We are a young Dutch couple and just installed on a small organic farm in beautiful Limousin.
We have a big house and plenty of room to host one or two volunteers at the time for a period of 1 to 2 weeks.

We have several vegetables gardens, chickens (for meat and eggs), a dog and some forest.
Daily activities include gardening (planting, harvesting, weeding, watering, preparing for market) and building/restoring chicken coops, greenhouse,taking care of the animals.

Our farm is situated close to the beautiful lake Lac de St.-Pardoux with several outdoor activities. We have two bikes (VTT) which you can use. There are plenty of walking opportunities around our small village as well (with forest and rivers just around the corner).

We can pick you up at trainstations at Nantiat, Bellac or La Souterraine. Or at the bus/trainstation Limoges-Bénédictins in Limoges.

Dutch, English, French, Fries spoken. Notions of German and Spanish.

EN:

We are a very dynamic French family. It is composed of Sybille and Benjamin, who have two children: Kilyann, 16 years old and the Lylou, 6 years old.

We live in Valoreille, near the French/Swiss border. The nearest town is Belfort-Montbéliard, 45 Km away by car taking approximately 40 min. Our village is situated at 720m above sea level, surrounded by trees and mountains. There are no shops but there is one Fromagerie.

We have a fairly large garden, where we grow some organic tomatoes, pumpkins, courgettes and green beans. Not for mass production but for our own consumption! We have a small cute dog and a very adorable cat.

We would be delighted to welcome people from all backgrounds to enrich our daily lives, sharing each other's culture. Ideally, we want you to feel as being part of the family and not merely a stranger. We take part in many activities and we are very passionate about nature and the environment.

We would appreciate someone who is outgoing, f... more inside

We are an English couple who operate 2 gites in the beautiful French countryside. 1 hour south of Toulouse and 35 mins from Carcassonne. Help is needed with gardening and general maintenance. The 3 properties (we live in 1 of them) are situated in 3 hectares, with a private pool, a lake, spectacular views of the Pyrennees and very rural, we are 15 mins drive away from the closest town, where young night life is very limited. We have a dogs, a Boxer a handful of chickens. Mums an artist and runs the gites and loves her big vegetable garden, (a great cook too), Dads a builder. We are a very easy going household. Looking for a couple to help out in May and then perhaps stay in our mobile home with great views free of charge for the summer in exchange for helping 2 days per week with the change overs.

Germaine & Bernard eat what they produce.
They have a small vineyard, garden and orchard.
Bernard tend a few beehives and is willing to share his passion.
This is your opportunity to experience French rural life.
They ask the helpers to do various odd jobs at the property,
be communicative and not engrossed in " screen-based activities ",
therefore, leaving their " virtual world " behind.
They must be interested in their tasks, the people and things that surround them.
Aids must be used to work manually.
Here, what is interesting is their self-sufficient lifestyle.
Unfortunately, they cannot cater for vegetarians.
The hosts speak French and they get by in English.
If you meet to these conditions, you will be very welcome.

We are part of the couch-surfing network since 2007 and we like it very much !
We are french, good English speakers, poor Spanish speakers.
In 2004, we bought a country house in the Pyrenees. We live and work in Aix-en-Provence, but we spend most of our holiday time in this house, doing usually the following activities :
- repairing the house
- taking care of the garden
- hiking, running, cycling, swimming in the St Pée d'Ardet little lake, cooking, reading, participating to the life of the village ...

The house is situated in a village named Galie, near the banks of the Garonne river (the house was flooded in June 2013, one meter of water + mud for 24 hours no serious damage because we live upstairs). The beautiful Pyrenees are all around, and Sp... more inside

We are an anglo-french couple who have just finished building an ecological (straw bale and earth and straw) house for our family in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We live in an 'eco-hamlet' of five houses. We are looking for help with our permaculture vegetable patch, some finishing touches to the house, and harvesting herbs as part of a cooperative plant project. We expect 5 hours work a day in exchange for meals and accommodation in our house or barn. There a places to put up tents or park vans. Our ideal helpers have some experience or love of gardening, enjoy physical work and like to live simply, close to nature. Work hours can be flexible with whole days off planned for exploring the area. There are lakes, rivers, mountains, all within easy reach, as are small villages with lots going on in terms of concerts and events over the summer. The food is mostly vegetarian but some meat occasionally appears on the table.
