Area: Near Malaga, AndaluciaMy name is Gary and myself and my wife Gitika live out in the campo 10 mins from Colmenar in a beautiful, quiet and idyllic spot. We are a British couple, and have spent several years building a house here in Andalucia. We are growing organically and have many olive, pomegranate, fig and almond trees. We eat a mainly vegetarian vegan diet, although I do occasionally eat a little fish, so if you're a vegetarian, it would be great for you here as Gitika is an excellent cook. We have been spending a lot of time in India and South America over the last few years, but now we want to spend more time here in Spain. We need people to help with our land, giving it some TLC and making it a more beautiful environment. Therefore we would welcome someone with a good attitude and positive energy to help us, especially people with experience of permaculture and gardening.
Area: Poitou Charentes, Charente 16250We are a family running a gite business. We have one three bed rental property. A pool and gardens. I'm hoping to develop the property to provide more rental accommodation. I have four children, 3,8,12 and fifteen they are all in French schools and speak French. We have a very small dog and three cats. We live close to a large village in the countryside, it's very picturesque and close to access to major train, air and road links. You will have your own private room and the house and garden is big enough to have private space and time. A great location to explore France.
Area: BrittanyWe are looking for some help on our 10 ha farm/smallholding, where I breed alpacas and sell their wool. Members of the public can visit the farm to learn about alpacas and the different stages involved in the transformation of the fleece into spun yarn, and knitted or felted garments and accessories. Our household consists of my mother and myself. Originally from the Netherlands, Dutch is our native language, but we are fluent in English and we speak reasonably good French. If you want to learn French, we would be happy to speak French with you, although at times we may have some difficulty expressing ourselves fully in French, and will probably end up speaking English. We are very animal orientated and our four dogs and seven cats, all very friendly, live with us as part of the family. Furthermore we have alpacas, horses and chickens. It is therefore imperative that a volunteer who comes here is an animal lover, as well as a non-smoker.
