    Hi!
    (MAY 2022 UPDATE: LOOKING FOR 1-2 HELPERS KEEN ON HELPING WITH ALL SORTS OF TASKS, THE IDEA BEING THAT YOU STAY AT OUR FARM IN A NICE CABIN AND HELP 1 DAY HERE AT FARM, 1 DAY AT MY MUM's GITE 10 MINUTES FROM HERE, ALTERNATING LIKE THIS.. ECO-CONSTRUCTION, HOUSECLEANING, LANDSCAPING, GARDENING, ANIMALCARE, FENCE MAINTENANCE, FIREWOOD.. 5 HOURS PER DAY and 5.5 DAYS / WEEK, OTHER ARRANGEMENTS POSSIBLE, PLEASE SEE BELOW)

    I have bought a gorgeous 18th century farm in 2016 after it had been abandoned for 10years. I am developing the farm sustainably, renovating the place with recycled and locally sourced, environmentally friendly materials. This life project is still in its beginning phases and we live very close to nature - although there's a luxurious double-bathtub and WIFI, the comfort in the house is still very basic and we are now starting the big works on the building. We are in the heart of one of France's most beautiful and touristic regions and there's many options for you to explore from here.

    I, Miggi, am Swissgerman and have studied sociology&development studies in the UK before coming to settle down here. I have travelled extensively, including through wwoofing. I love animals, horseriding or taking the lamas, pigs and the goat all together for a walk. Although I am not a trained carpenter I like to build things out of wood and I live in my homemade, 10m long wooden cabin-on-wheels on the property. I am looking after a network of 300km of hiking trails in the region (happy to share my knowledge of great spots and trails!).
    My friend Yoann is living here too. He grew up in the Dordogne, he's a carpenter and a mason and in his freetime he likes to go fishing (-:

    We eat organic, local food at most times – there are great weekly streetmarkets close by that we can take you too.
    Apart from restoring the buildings we have various activities on site – tending to the animals (goats, lamas, pigs, horses), organic garden and fruit orchard, beekeeping..
    We'd love some help on all fronts but this year the building works on the house will be prioritised.

    I would like to highlight that I ask for self-motivated and autonomous helpers only - I am looking for people who are happy to work in a small group but also alone, as required.

    Ideally you'd have your own transport so it's easy for you to get around here. We're 20min walk from the touristic town of Les Eyzies, or 3min drive.

    I love sharing my passion for this gorgeous french region which I have chosen as my homeland out of all worldly spots known to me. We are into alternative habitats - treehouses, cabins etc - and are happy to share our knowledge of traditional building techniques and innovative alternative ways of life and animal keeping.
    We take part in a lot of local activities in and around town and are happy to show you around - folk dancing evenings, streetmarkets, jam sessions, street theatres,..

    We are right in the heart of one of France's most touristic and culturally rich regions. It's here in Les Eyzies that the first Cro-magnon man was found and there's 5museums just in this one little town, on top of the original prehistoric caves with the 17'000year old paintings that you can visit.
    The French-English '100years War' happened right here on our doorstep and there's some magnificent medieval castles to explore due to this century of war.
    The nature here is great and has many treasures that we can help you discover - wild stalagtite caves, hiking, abandoned villages, etc.
    You can borrow our bicycle to go explore, or rent a canoe down in the village.
    It is handy to have a car around here.

    2022 UPDATE: PRIORITY ON GETTING THE NEW ROOF FINISHED! (taking old tiles off, insulating with wooden fiber, and put new handmade artisanal tiles back on), but also some landscaping, fence maintenance for the animals, firewood missions, masonry.. as well as caring for the animals and their habitats (lamas, horses, goats, pigs, sheep, cats).
    Ideally speak at least a little bit of french to communicate with Yoann on the building site.

    Although carpenters, joiners and masons would be our dream-helpers, we don't require you to have any prior knowledge in any of these areas to be able to help us - but you do need to be reasonably fit, strong, willing to learn and ready to get your hands dirty !! We would like to highlight that we ask for self-motivated and autonomous helpers only - we are looking for people who are happy to work in a small group but also alone, as required.

    We ask for 5hours of help per day, 5.5days a week.
    Possibility to do only 3hours/day and pay 5euro/day towards food and bills (must be arranged in advance).
    If you have an autonomous home (campervan/tent) then we only ask for 4hours a day, 5.5days a week.

    You will either be housed in a quaint little wooden roulotte (1person or a couple), and otherwise in our attic with doublebed and WIFI but – beware - It is very simple living up there - we're in the process of making the attic into a nice living space, but its still very rustic right now. During hot days it can get hot in the daytime, and cold on cold nights. If there are several helpers at any one time, you will be sharing the attic space together, but each has own bed.

    You are also welcome to bring your campervan along, there are 3 spots for campervans, and you can hook yourself up to electricity - but no electric heaters in campervans!

    All meals are included - breakfasts on a self-service basis, daily shared lunch and shared dinner every SECOND night (but cooking ingredients provided for every night).
    Possibility to do only 3hours/day and pay 5euro/day towards food and bills.
    We use only biodegradable produce in our bathroom and don't want any smoking in the house please, thank you!

    The location is unbeatable : placed amidst magical forests and fields, on top of a limestone plateau riddled with prehistoric caves and clifftop viewpoints – yet within walking distance (2km) of the tourism-hotspot village 'Les Eyzies' and it's lovely canoeable&swimmable river Vézère.
    We are also 20min drive away from 4 of France's 'most beautiful villages' (Sarlat, Beynac, La Roque Gageac, St.Leon sur Vézère), a good dozen medieval castles, prehistoric caves and other cultural sites (check out Chateau Castelnaud, Chateau Milandes, Grotte Font de Gaume, Grotte de Lascaux IV, La Roc St.Christophe, Jardins Marqueyssac, Chateau Commarque..).
    There's great hiking around here, wild caves for the speleology lovers and fabulous street markets for the gourmets. If you're experienced, possible to take the horses out for a ride, or the other animals (lama, pigs, goat) for a walk.
    We have a bicycle to lend to you.

    To get here : cheap ryanair flights from UK to bergerac (1h away), from where you can take a train to saint cyprien, where we can pick you up.
    Direct train from Bordeaux to Sarlat (20min away), where we can pick you up.
