However, please feel free to e-mail us about other times. ************* The bees are buzzing, the birds are singing and the blossom promises a bounty of cherries a few weeks from now. Meanwhile the garden is getting out of control. If you would like to spend a few weeks in our lovely area of France, enjoy exploring the Pyrenees and southern Gascony in between attacking the weeds and various odd jobs, then we would love to hear from you. We are an English speaking family and have lived in the South West France for the past twenty years.

Our daughter (21) lives at home from time to time as does our elderly mother. We have a small dog who is mischievous but very well behaved and loves people and walks.... Our son currently works at a restaurant in London. We love travelling, cooking (ex restauranteurs) and enjoy sport. Cycling, pelote basque (local racquet sport), skiing, surfing etc. We run a local business, work hard, enjoy french life but would welcome a little help!
Area: Poitou CharentesHere we live close to nature for to find a new connection with art. The art of to live and creating beauty in all levels. Here there is a biological farm. And big ateliers for painting, dancing, making music. Even digital art. The food is vegetarian and as much straight out the garden. We live in an dynamique meditative way. We do not like to take alcohol, tabac or any drugs. I am a flemish artist that likes to start all kind of art from the dansyoga presence.
Area: Thire : vendee regionHey there, hard worker! We need easy-going hard-working workawayers to help us with a good sized on taking. Stephanie is from the USA, and Scotty is from England. We found France to the answer to our prayers, and now we need help to keep this dream going. We are renting a small holiday apartment building that needs tons of TLC. It sits on about one acre. Thire is a very quiet and laid back village with a pizza bar that opens only for dinner. There are beaches within an hour's drive. There are always bicycles to pedal around Thire, or up to St Hermine which is only 3-4 KM away.
Area: Southern FranceWe are a couple who have swapped the office for the outdoors and are renovating an old stone farmhouse in the beautiful and spectacular mountains of the Cevennes region in the south of France. Our land is in a secluded valley just 5 minutes walk from a small village and 5 minutes drive from a medium sized town which has all the typical Southern French characteristics as well as lots of local idiosyncrasies. So far we live in a caravan in a barn while we work on the farmhouse and cultivate the garden.
Area:We already have volunteers for the summer/fall of 2014... We are a family of four. I am 37 years old, my husband is 40 yers old and we have two little girls, aged 5 and 7. We live on a farm in northwest Iceland, with about 500 sheep and around 30 horses. We are looking to have someone who is ready to occasionally babysit and participate in the tasks on the farm as well as in the household.
