The site is shut until further notice. Thanks for looking!

We are a four person family, my parents bought this run down old French farmhouse on the edge of a tiny village in Northern France 15 years ago and we're just attempting to renovate it now (finally). Myself (25years) and my brother (23years) are helping alongside two men (24 and 34 years) rebuild the house, but we really need extra hands! In exchange for lending a hand you will be fed and watered very well, be provided with space to pitch a tent, and given the opportunity to spend a few days to a couple of weeks in rural France. The surrounding countryside is lovely for walking and cycling, with restaurants, cafes and patisseries nearby.

We really need people to come and help between the end of July and the end of August 2011.

This would be ideal for someone looking to do some travelling in France/Europe, who could use this as a way to get across the channel for free.

Type of help



Although the work is primarily construction, we welcome anyone with enthusiasm who doesn't mind getting their hands dirty and mucking in where they're needed. Alongside the heavy work there is also plenty of gardening, painting and cleaning to do!
