Area: Lazio, Rome, UmbriaWe are a French/German couple with our two baby girls living in a beautiful medieval village in Lazio on the border to Umbria (rolling hills with olive groves and vineyards) just one hour away from the eternal city of Rome (60km, easy access by public transport). We live in a beautifully to modern standards restored old, spacious stone house with a large garden with many olive and fruit trees. We are looking for a research assistant who could enter all books in our library in a database. It's an easy job, just recording all book titles and authors' names so we have an easier time finding the books we have. We are sure you will love the area, the people and our house. Ideally, you are between 20-70 years old and enjoy Italian country life, good and healthy food, and are culturally and historically interested in the region of Rome and Lazio (no precondition, of course, you would just enjoy the experience even more). You will easily find friends among the very open and friendly locals and especially among the many expats of Swiss, French, English, German, or American origin. We are looking for a healthy, energetic individual who would like to stay with us for about 2 weeks. We have enough space to accommodate you. You will have your own independent bedroom and bathroom, and, of course, high speed internet. You will share the kitchen, the living room, the large garden and several terraces with us. We will provide all meals (homemade French and Italian cooking).

Area: Siem Reap City.My name is Sokhom Khit and I live with my wife and child in a small village just outside of Siem Reap City, the city of the Ancient Empire.I have lived here for all of my life and have a thorough understanding of the people and more importantly the children within the city. I run a free local school with my wife that teaches both English and Japanese to any local children that wish to attend, we rely largely on volunteers who wish to help us teach as it is full time work for just my wife and I. The English lessons run from 8.30a.m to 10.00a.m.then 2.30p.m to 4.p.m and 5p.m to 6.00p.m We also have a Japanese class from 10a.m to 11a.m and 4p.m to 5p.m All classes from Monday to Friday all year round. The classes are basic English spelling, grammar and punctuation. We require volunteers who speak either English or Japanese. We only require 3 hours of teaching per day, there may be other activities you can volunteer your time in between this, but mostly you are free to explore the city or temples, we are located roughly half way between both so are at a perfect location. I am happy to help you out with any local knowledge you may need and you are free to come with us to the local market and any other local festivities that may be on. If you need anymore information do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to answer any inquires. Other than that I look forward to meeting you.
Area: baixa alentejo/west-algarveWe are 2 life long best friends of 38 years old, who´ve started this project to create a self sustainable oasis along side the river: "Ribeira de Odeceixe", both for private as well as business purposes. We are developing an eco retreat & inspiration center that will be used for many things, but it's all about connecting with nature, ecology and self sustainability. We're situated 7 km from the beach and 4 km from Odeceixe. We are going to start our 6th season in March (we´re closed till february 2014 for winter break) and now have very specific things to do and we will request the help for longer periods and for specific tasks. This season we need help on our farm activities, this involves: bio-dynamic gardening, keeping the farm tidy and clean (both inside and outside), cooking for the crew and making home made products. Animal care is also a daily activity. We work four days a week, of 6.5 hours plus 1.5 hours of breaks. People who take care of f.e the chickens and veggie garden will be asked to do this on a daily basis and these hours will be compensated. We've just started receiving clientes in our accomodations, so we also need help in maintaining the ornamental gardens and cleaning inside and ouside areas. Besides that, we are looking for people who can help us in landscaping, making pathways, tiling, fencing,etc. So a bit of carpentry, masonry and gardening skills are preferable. This year we'll be working with a slightly smaller group in comparison to what we have done the last years with 25 pax and more. So expect to come into a group of more or less 10 persons. We'd love to hear from you! Vida Pura Portugal
