We are a family of husband and wife with 2 young daughters and among other things we run a cat retreat & rescue - we offer a forever home to cats that are unlikely to be adopted - often rescued from the streets, plus we foster cats in need and rescue.
We've lived in Bulgaria for 7 years and love it.
For work the husband Simon travels from Bulgaria to UK, leaving Michelle the wife to manage alone which is often hard so an extra pair of hands to help out would be so useful
We also have horses which experienced riders could ride in their own time - sorry they are not suitable for beginners or for teaching to ride.
We are a dutch young couple living in Condom in sunny Gascony in the South West of France.
We have 2 young childeren, one boy who is nearly 4 years old and one little girl of nearly 2, we also have 2 dogs.
We run our own business so we work also 6/7 days per week.
We live in the countryside with no direct neighbours, all the wildlife in our garden and we have lovely views towards the pyrenees.
The nearest town is Condom, 5 minutes. TGV & railway station is Agen and Toulouse in the closest international airport.

We are Jo and Nick, we are in our late forties We're from Northampton in England.
We have lived here in the south west of France since 2003, we have two grown-up children who no longer live here with us , We have three dogs, ( 1 German Shephard, 1 Alaskan malamute , 1 Collie Cross), two cats and a few chickens.
We have an ongoing project (like most people!) : renovating our farmhouse and we're looking for a helping hand ! There is always something to do ! A big bonus would be someone who is really handy in woodworking/carpentry as there are lots of small projects ie : doors to make, sanding , painting ,etc (Not essential though) There is also gardening, painting, decorating to do, the list goes on and on... We don't have masses of land here though, just a large garden, which is enough ! we ask for at least 5 hours work a day and also for you to get involved with the cooking in the evening , (either preparation or clearing up afterwards )
We are a new collective consisting of three adults, teenager, and baby living in the beautiful mountains of the Haut Diois. Our place is an estate 15 minute drive to the historic medieaval town of Chatillion-en-Diois or a 20 minute drive to the larger community of Die.
The main projects of 2014 are biodynamic vegetable garden in the summer (and year-round), the on-going renovation and reconstruction of an old existing stone structure into a dance / mult-purpose exercise space, a chicken-coop, a yurt, a pond, and sweat lodge
We are interested in sustainable living, permaculture, and the practice of the performing arts!
We especially welcome volunteers who are musicians/dancers, as well as volunteers whishing to work and learn biodynamic gardening, and permaculture building projects ( masonry, carpentry, pluming etc)! If you can work independantly and take initiative, that is the type of person that thrives here. Our goal is to host artist residencies and worshops of various practices (bodywork, music, dance);once the studio is completed. In the interim there is ample exterior space, and a multi-purpose interior space to practice. we have a piano, trapeze, slack-line, fabric (arial dance) and chance to build a daily practice with Taoist movements, and share in dance, music, singing, yoga ( other forms of practice are welcomed).
Vegetarian, drug and alcohol free community.
