We are Wilf and Rosi and we moved here to the south Vienne two years ago. We live in an old farm with our dog and cats, in a small hamlet in some delightful countryside about an hour southwest of Poitiers.

Rosi used to be a primary school teacher in England, while Wilf is a psychology graduate and an ex-driving instructor. Rosi is the one who gets on with the work! She has done plastering, tiling, some electrics and plumbing, and has a fair bit of knowledge about roofing and such like, since being here in France.

The house is now habitable - we have already completed a lot of work, including electrics, new bathroom, roof etc - however we want to expand a bit and need help with a bit more roofing and building work on some of the many outbuildings. Also, last summer our beautiful barn collapsed so we have a lot of clearance work to do - and help would be greatly appreciated in the reclamation of some of the timbers, stone and tiles.

Rosi has managed to clear and sort out muc... more inside

I live in Poitiers,a middle size town located on France's west center side ( 180 kms from the Atlantic Ocean ).Paris is 340 kms from Poitiers and can be easily reached by train ( a 2 hours long trip ) and Bordeaux is 250kms away.
Near my house,you will find a bus stop that can bring you to downtown ( frequent stops ).
Poitiers is a city mixing historical interests and a great diversity of fauna and flora interests as seen in the various museums, parks and zoos around the town.We also located on the famous way of St Jacques of Compostelle.
My personnal interests revolve around nature, one's health, natural medecine, relationships, travelling.My own son lives in Melbourne and I get to visit him as often as possible.
I understand English and Spanish.
For those interested in coming to visit me, I'll ask them to help me with some manual work like painting the bathroom and a bedroom that I want to renovate. This is a small room but I'll need also help to move the furniture out.Som... more inside

After having Helpers from all over the world at my old farm in Holland, I just moved to France with my 6 Icelandic horses, 2 dachshunds and 4 cats.
My name is Gerry and I am a Dutch woman of 51 years old, 'retired' veterinary specialist and running saddle fitting courses on academic level in The Netherlands and France. I speak Dutch, English, German and a bit French.

After a year of rebuilding this place, I could move in, but still lots of jobs to do.
So if you have real handyman skills or if you a true gardener (would like to have a small vegetable garden) then you are welcome to stay for 1 or 2 weeks (or longer if we would really get along) at my farm.

The farm is at a magical spot, on the edge of a forest on the border of Deux-Sèvres and Vendée, about 1,5 hour from La Rochelle and Poitiers airport, near the magnificent park Puy du Fou, and historical towns like Vouvant and Parthenay.

You would stay in a double bedroom with private shower in the guesthouse with possibil... more inside

We live in an Old Farmhouse on the edge of a beautiful rural village.

Stunning accomodation internally, work continuing in the landscaped garden and on the exterior of the house - this is what we would like you to help with.

The accommodation we offer is 1st class and is ideal for one - or a couple - or two friends. You would have your own living area consisting of three bedrooms with adjoining lounge - FreeSat, TV, DVD and WiFi. Complete with shower room and toilet.

The work will be varied, interesting and skill-building, and the way we live is open and relaxed.

Working hours and tasks can be altered to suit whoever we accept and would typically be 25 hours per week with great flexibility as to how those hours fit into days. We also expect to share cooking and cleaning duties.

We look forward to having someone come to stay with us and share in our wonderful French lifestyle.

HI !
Who would like to help me to start a little permaculture garden ?
I need help also to do the clearing, and if this inspires you : construction and maintenance work. The season is conducive to spending time outdoors and invite us to be one with Nature.

I love to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures, and share mine.
People are usually pleased to visit my region, in the Limousin , South west of France ; Castles, vineyards, lakes, ocean...

My little farm is near a river and lakes, and there are lots of walking and bike tracks in the area. 3 bikes available for you to borrow if you like that kind of thing.
The main town with all commodities is Confolens at 10 minutes by car, and the village at 4 minutes with a baker, post office, hairdresser and a doctor. Big towns Limoges , Saint Junien (25km), Angoulême are less than one hour drive.

There are 13ha of fields for horses that I have been managing without any chemical molecules for 23 ye... more inside
