LOOKING FOR HELPERS TO GARDEN FROM MID-SEPTEMBER TO END OF OCTOBER

Born in England, brought up in Australia, after working in Southeast Asia and then London, I moved permanently to France five years ago. I live on a small property (1 hectare) in a hamlet in the Lot department in Southwest France. I have worked as a helper (# 731919HA) with HelpX in France and Australia. The area where I live is mostly given over to cattle farming and forests. I have been restoring a 240-year old farmhouse. The major works have been done. The house has been reroofed, rewired, and has hot and cold running water. The bedrooms have been insulated but I need help in laying insulation in the main living area. There is WiFi (which is reasonably fast as I am the only user in the area) and there is mobile phone reception. There is some plastering and painting still to do in the house.

The guest room (for Helpers) is fully insulated with an electric wall heater, double bed and chest of drawers. The... more inside

Especially interested in helpers with experience in tree surgery..

Helper opportunities during September, November and December.

We are very willing to host helpers, but on the basis of no more than two persons for a maximum of two weeks during the Summer.

We are a retired English couple, living in Lower Normandy with a pygmy goat, 2 obnoxious geese, Podge the dog and 5 attention seeking cats. We need help with animal care, gardening, renovations and cleaning in exchange for board and lodging. Some heavy outdoor manual work may be involved. Helpers must be prepared to cuddle up with a cat or dog occasionally! We can share with you animal husbandry skills, local culture and history and can help to improve your French or English language. No shopping malls or clubs - you must be prepared for a very simple but peaceful way of living. Suit helpers looking for an experience away from the rat race.

Originally from the North East of Scotland we moved to Central France and bought the abandoned farm in 2008 after selling up in Scotland in 2006 and down-sizing to a camper-van with our two huge dogs and touring around Europe looking for the right place to put down some roots. We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible-renovating the buildings and developing the land using eco-friendly, sustainable techniques, resources and energy. We have one hectare of land surrounding the house and a further 2 hectares of overstood, abandoned coppiced woodland that we are attempting to regenerate to provide our fuel; building materials; material for basket-making; charcoal-making etc. and just for being a beautiful place to spend time in and have fun!
The hectare of land is divided into pasture for animals and a potager/vegetable garden and orchard for food production. We are joining up these areas to create an all-encompassing "forest garden".
We have recently given up our g... more inside

OUR PROJECT = Rehabilitation of a old stone farmhouse in the forest/ working on our vegetable garden & creating water bassins

As a family we started to change our life style to a more responsible one ( re-use of materials, less waste, vegetarian food). We are learning continuously and like to share experiences and pass a message to our kids.

We are converting a small (abandoned for over 60 yrs) farmhouse into a sustainable living accommodation. We love to share our experience with people who would like to share their experiences with us in return.

Some of our kids are regularly wooffing in other parts of the world.


We live in the South of France between Provence and Ardèche area at the border of the "Cevennes" mountains/natural park area. A beautiful natural environment, but not isolated. We have two little goats, cats and chicken and a friendly dog called 'Noek'. There is lively family atmosphere with kids from 11 to 23 years old. Mixed culture (Dutch, French) a... more inside

Hi travellers!

We are Adrien and Solene, a french couple living in the south of France in the beautiful city of Nice ! We are located in the heart of the city, close to everything and especially the sea (6 minutes walking) nightlife and old town (3 minutes walking). We love travelling and we used helpx in different countries, for us it's the best way to save money and learn more about the culture and habits of local people.

We own a small guesthouse and we are looking for 1 or 2 serious and trusting persons to help us with some tasks like :
- preparing breakfast,
- cleaning the rooms,
- changing the sheets,
- make the landry,
welcoming the new guests, etc.
You will be assisting us at the begginnig and then you will have to work alone so you need to be independent with fluent English and some French basics. Another language is great too!
Minimum lenght of stay : 1 month (more is better)
Important information : for the moment we need one or 2 persons for one mo... more inside
