Region: Algarve (Monchique)Our property/house is in the Algarve, in the mountains ,the Serra de Monchique, not near the coast. We are a german couple, I am a veterinarian and animal protector, my husband is an artist, electrician, porcelane painter. We are living in a house in the mountains,we make oecological gardening and composting and we are building a house from clay. Our place is in the middle of the nature, a very quiet place, with wild animals as frogs, birds, foxes and wild pigs around. We live in an oecological way, using only natural products and no chemical stuff. We are living here with 4 dogs, 3 cats, a Kakadoo and 2 chicken. The ocean is not so far away and we can offer a car to go there for relaxing on the beach or to go for activities like surfing. We sometimes go there for fishing. The mountains are good for walking in the middle of nowhere. We have a small and a bigger village about 5-10 km away from our house and some bigger cities around 30 km away. We like to have here people living close together with us as members of the family, as friends. Hakuna Matata

Region: Poitou CharentesI am an British woman running a small restaurant in the Charente, and am in the process of changing to a Jamaican Restaurant . I live with my friendly dog George in a large stone built house and the restaurant is incorporated within it. When not working I enjoy knitting and sewing and getting out and about. In the summer months there are many events in the region...most communes organise their own events such as the Imprevu in Montemboeuf, Marches Nuit(Night markets) are abundant!! Many musical and cultural events are free to attend or for very little money. There is also a Karting circuit 10 minutes away. There's so much to see and try!! I would value any contribution from a Workaway person. What you would receive in return is tasty food, a friendly environment and achievable challenges. Set in the rural countryside there is both tranquillity plus beautiful countryside and for those that like cities Angouleme is 25 mins drive with much to see and experience.
