Area: Midi PyreneesWe are a family of three, including a three year-old little girl, living in a house in the very South of France, 5 minutes from a quaint historical little town in the Pyrenees. The house has a large garden and a couple pastures and is set in a very quiet area (a hamlet surrounded by pasture land) in the foothills of the Pyrenees (40 minutes from ski resorts and 2 hours from the sea). We are francophones and I am an English teacher at the local high school. I've visited 22 countries and lived in the UK and Canada. When I was a child, we used to host foreign students who wanted to learn French and I loved the experience. We are very "Nature"-oriented, eat organic food, and have a vegetable garden as well as some fruit trees.

Area: AndinaWe are a beautiful hostel run by its owners, Charles from Spain and Patricia from Colombia. We have 10 rooms spread over different accommodations, from dormitories to private rooms. There are green areas, gardens, swimming pool, large kitchen, bar, terrace and BBQ. Our idea of opening this place is to help the community attracting national and international tourism and offer the tourist and traveler a beautiful oasis in the middle of the large area of the Colombian Andes in this small and charming village of Chachagui, Southern Colombia, located half and hour from Pasto and two hours to the border with Ecuador. We'd like to offer the volunteer the chance to explore the undiscovered department of Nariño, a beautifull area still away from mass tourism where you will have the change to get to know the rural life and their customs of the south east of Colombia, just five hours bus from the pacific ocean and watch the whales pass by from June to Octover. We offer the voluntary, a studio apartment that includes room, kitchen and shared bathroom. It is nice and comfortable. In exchange, you will have to help with the daily work at the hostel,five hours a day and one day off during the week.

Disponemos de amplias zonas verdes, jardines, piscina, amacas bar, terraza, BBQ y una amplia cocina comunitaria. Nuestra idea de abrir este lugar fue poder ayudar a la comunidad donde nos encontramos atrayendo el turismo nacional e internacional, de igual manera poder ofrecer al turista y viajero un hermoso Oasis en medio de un amplio espacio ubicado en los andes Colombianos. El puelbo de Chachagui, donde nos encontramos, esta en el sur este de Colombia, a media hora de Pasto y a tan solo dos horas con la frontera de Ecuador. Queremos ofrecer al voluntario la oportunidad de explorar el departamento de Nariño que tan poco se conoce y tanto tiene para ofrecer. Un area que por el momento escapa del turismo masivo donde disfrutara de la vida rural, de su gente y sus costumbres. Estamos a tan solo cinco horas de autobus del mar pacifico, donde podra observar a las ballenas en su peregrinaje hacia el norte, entre los meses de Junio y Octubre. Ofrecemos al voluntario un aparta estudio que incluye cocina, el baño es compartido. A cambio, tendras que ayudarnos con el trabajo diario del hostal, cinco horas al dia y un dia libre a la semna.

Area: AndaluciaURGENT. My last workawayer has had to leave suddenly and return home due to a family berevement. I am looking for someone to start immediatley. I only take single work awayers, no couples or friends traveling together please. At the moment there is still some bramble clearance that needs doing, painting inside and outside of the house and mixing of concrete so I can finish rendering the wall. Someone with carpentry skills would be good as I have a door that needs fitting. Horse riding is available for someone who is a very experienced rider. Echo hasn't been ridden since last November and hadn't done much before that. He is very stuborn! Days off would need to be taken mid week so you can cover for me looking after the animals when I am away at weekends compeating with the dogs. I expect you to work 25 hours a week in return for full board and accomadation in my guest appartment. If you have a problem with being told what to do by a woman please don't apply!!! I live on a small holding 2 1/2 km from the traditional Andalucian village of Riogordo, with my 2 dogs, 2 horses, 7 peacocks and 2 chickens. I have 2 1/2 acres of land set at the bottom of the valley with a river running through it and lots of orange trees. I had a bad fall off one of the horses and it has left me struggling with all that needs doing round here. I am English and an artist, writer and dog trainer. I take my inspiration from the animals and the surounding countryside. It is a truly magical and special place here, far from the hustle and bustle of the city I used to live in. A place to be inspired, batteries recharged and some where to get in touch which your spiritual side. The river is full of trout, frogs and turtles and has herons nesting near by that come down to fish. The trees are full of oranges, lemons and pomegranites. Nothing beats picking an orange straight from the tree and eating it!
