We’re Terence (64) and Kate (57) a friendly Anglophone couple with connections to the UK, New Zealand and Greece. We’ve a hectare of land on the borders of La Mayenne and Orne- a region of gentle hills, orchards, grazing cows and picturesque towns and villages. We have a number of ‘projects’ to interest you

• Livestock fencing and maintenance
• Repairing roofs of outbuildings
• Installing guttering and water butts for rain harvesting
• Rebuilding (in wood) of the goat and chicken houses
• Putting new covers on the poly-tunnels
• Constructing a composting system
• Wood cutting

We have three donkeys, two goats, two dogs and Phoebe the ginger cat! So there’s the daily round of work that supports our animals; letting out, feeding, mucking out, ‘poo picking’ etc. Are your fingers green? There’s digging, preparing, sowing/planting, hoeing, watering, harvesting in the vegetable garden and fruit trees. Grass cutting, strimming and general yard maintenance.

We’re very dilige... more inside

We immigrated a year ago from the center of Amsterdam to the center of France, the Creuse à part of the Limousin. There we bought an old watermill dated from 1710. We live in a comfortable, 80’s, renovated giant barn from around 1850. Beside the watermill and the millers house there is another old house we are renovating to turn into a gite/guesthouse. There is an huge pond which supplied the mill of water and near it is a field (now with cows on it) which we want to turn into a mini camping with safari tents in the future. We are a couple in our late 40's with a 5 year old son, a cat and a dog (who play, eat and sleep together) We live 3 kilometers near Dun-le-Palestel with shops and a weekly market. It’s a 20 minute ride to the nearest train station in La Souterraine were we can pick you up.
We are looking for people who can help us renovating the gite. Tilers, plumbers, carpenters, all-round handyman or handygirls are very very welcome! People who like to work in the garden (whi... more inside

Bonjour!

Living in maritime Brittany, we are the French `guardians` of a 3 hectares (nearly 7 acres) piece of land on the edge of a forest, 6 kilometers from the sea and the gorgeous beaches of the north coast. Its name is `Jardin du Kalon` (Garden of Heart), next to a small village called Lanvellec.

Our land is a beautiful, celtic green place surrounded by woodland, including a meadow, big granit boulders, a small lake with a place to make night fires, a stream and a fairy swamp, a big mandala-shaped vegetable garden, hand-made chalets available as working studios, and plenty of nice and quiet spots for contemplation or artistic expression, or whatever joyful and ecological activities you would enjoy!

For the past 16 years, our on-going project has been to create a retreat/garden/centre for sustaining inner, spiritual resources and creativity, and the project is unfolding nicely, with the help and inspiration of so many excellent visitors over the years.

This summer a... more inside

Hello,
If you want to know life in a place of great tranquility of the countryside, on a moyennageux site, I give you an appointment here.
We are looking for motivated people who want to live an adventure out of time. Here we love nature, ancient architecture, calm; we are good cooks, rather artists and during the spring months we face in the grass and brambles that grow too fast for us! We need valiant arms to manipulate mower and débrouissailleuse on a large lot and the towers of the old castle in ruins!
So if you think you fit this profile, for 2, 3 or 4 weeks, and you speak a little French and want to talk more after, come see us !!! Those who have been there have been bad to leave .....
See you soon!

Salut, je vis dans une maison en autonomie énergétique en essayant d'avoir un impacte le plus positif possible sur notre environnement.
Actuellement je suis en train d'améliorer les systèmes d'autonomie en eau et en énergie, je fais de l'écoconstruction en bois/terre/paille, et je mets en place petit à petit les principes de la permaculture. J'ai besoin d'aide pour avancer dans ce projet.
Mon but à court terme est de pouvoir accueillir des groupes pendant une semaine pour partager sur les thèmes du développement personnel, des émotions, et de la spiritualité.

Hello, i am leaving in a self sufficient house, trying to have the best impact on the nature i can. I am using permacultur principles and ecoconstruction, and i need some help to make this project grow and become a reality as soon as possible. I will receive groups of 10 people soon, in order to share on spirituality, personal development, and emotions.

A great opportunity for experienced people who would like the use of land for sustainable, ecological agriculture. We are looking to hand over responsibility of the land for 2-5 years while we renovate the farmhouse.

We have 5 hectares of farmland, 40mins from the Spanish border, 20mins from Bayonne and Biarritz surf beaches. the land currently is covered in new woodland with some old trees, bamboo, tonnes of brambles and ancient vines (not currently in a state for grape production).

The house is uninhabitable, so accommodation will either be in a caravan or a tent.

This is a different situation to normal helpex arrangements as you will be independent, providing your own food and other living arrangements. Because we are renovating, the living conditions on site are pretty basic, although there is electricity, water and a hot shower under a walnut tree. There is the potential for internet (it's not currently activated) and are just finishing the temporary kitchen with mud &... more inside

Annie and I are renovating our house and log chalet, ready for french students studying english. A lot of work has been done but still a long way to go! At the moment we are about to put back together an acquired conservatory.We are looking for help with general building work, nothing specialised, but another strong pair of hands about the place. We are trying to do up our house for free as a challenge to our selves by recycling, reusing, readapting what we have or can swap, barter or source locally.A lot of our food is grown locally, or at this time of year there is an abundant supply of free food in the fields and hedgerows, so lots of home cooking. Don't eat a lot of meat, some fish, but healthy! Accommodation for our helpx will be in the main house or the log chalet. Whoever is brave enough to come to us will be warmly welcomed as part of the family. All food drinks etc., Included, transport when we go on shopping trips etc., evenings out sometimes, or evenings in with books, ga... more inside
