Area: QueenslandWe are a non-smoking family of 5 - Mum, Dad, 8yr old twins & 7yr old boys. We also have three dogs, one cat, two guinea pigs, chooks and free ranging wildlife. We have a 6,500acre cropping property in the Goondiwindi area and have a need for some hard working, fun loving travellers. We are an hour from our local town so own transport would be an advantage but not a necessity as we will be happy to collect from Goondiwindi bus depot. We are happy to have couples, singles and mates. We recommend a minimum of 2 weeks and welcome anything over. Work will vary depending on season & weather.
Area: MaineWe are a warm, friendly family that loves to spend time together. We are very playful, but we are also hardworking. We enjoy God's beautiful creation and do our best to take care of the earth and His creatures. It's important to us that every person who stays with us is happy here.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonWe have this old house with stone walls in a charming hamlet in Languedoc- Roussillon, declared Historical Heritage. This village is actually a port, bordering the Canal du Midi built in the late seventeenth century by Pierre- Paul Riquet. This canal lined with greenery and old towpaths is classed as an remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site. We fell in love with this romantic spot along the water where live ducks, geese and raccoons ... Life is sweet here ! For us the point is to renovate this old vineyard house to make guestrooms. That's why someone to help us would be very welcome ! We are living in another house not far, surrounded by vineyards. There is a nice shady garden where we enjoy a rest home after work. Jean Paul is an educator for children in difficulty and I am in press editor and author in Paris (of travel guides). We have left everything to a new life, healthier and much quieter! We are now voluntarily "unemployed" in order to focus on the restoration of the house. Jean Paul is passionate about cycling and me with yoga. We eat organic food, we buy our vegetables from local producers and bread to our baker friend. We would love to have someone from a foreign country to share, having myself traveled a lot in the world (in Europe, Austalia, Tasmania, United States, India, malasia, Népal, Hong Kong, Thaïland, Indonésia...).
Area: AndaluciaI live with my 11 year old son in an old converted mill in the countryside south of Colmenar; our neighbours are kindly Spanish people plus of course goats and bees! My partner spends some of the time in the UK. We are on a steep hillside with three terrace plots dug out to accommodate vegetable areas and fruit trees, but writing three books in the past four years has limited my time and they were looking sad and somewhat neglected until helpers arrived! We have a constant battle with the chumba plants (prickly pear) and the not infrequent visits of the jabali (wild boar) who help turn over the soil.... Help with all of the above plus painting walls white on a regular basis makes up just some of the list! It sometimes seems that all we need help with it catching up as a result of the wiles of the weather: stuff blown all over the place, branches down, paint looking a bit sorry for itself. Plus not being the world's keenest 'housekeeper'.............. !!!
