Área: Auvergne****UPDATE WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2013 SEASON. WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO COME AND HELP WITH OUR PROJECT FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER 2014 PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU WANT TO HELP***** We have had a great year hosting many diverse workawayers with lots of happy memories, and look forward to a great 2014! We have been living and working here for the last 18 years. The property is set in 23 acres (9.25 hectares) and is made up of a hunting lodge, farmhouse and a rundown Porcherie. Jennifer is a catering manager in hospitality for a motor sport team, Malcolm is a working musician. Malcolm also works as a professional antique stove restorer, so there are always interesting architectural antiques about the place. We are both in our 50’s. Jennie has a wide repertoire in the kitchen and is quite happy to teach those that are willing. She can teach the following cuisines: Indian; French; Cordon Bleu and good old fashioned English country cooking. Jennie is also an excellent vegetarian cook. We have three adorable donkeys, three miniature black sheep, a flock of interesting breed chickens, a pond full of Indian runner ducks. We also have five cats. We have a productive veggie plot which helps to feed us throughout the year. We look upon our five acre landscaping project as a working canvas, so anyone interested in bringing fresh ideas would be most welcome. There are always ongoing projects that we need help with. Duties will include: gardening on the veggie plot; general gardening; hedging; wood chopping. Looking after the various animals, building work under supervision. We have a tractor, commercial mower, a digger and a dumper all of which get constant use throughout the summer months! The property is in a rural location, 15 minutes from the nearest town. Situated on a quiet lane the house is within easy reach of Paray Le Monial, Marcigny and Roanne. Situated near two villages, both with thriving bar/restaurants offering local fare, the area is very peaceful. And the locals are very friendly! We have mountain bikes that you can use whilst you are here. If you like fishing, the Loire River is 5 minutes away by bike. We travel quite often looking for stoves, you would be welcome to come with us and see some of France. We are working hard to finish the accommodation for April which will consist of 1 bedrooms and a shared bathroom, or the choice of a caravan, if you want your own space. We’re hoping for a maximum of four people at the peak period in the summer Malcolm is professional rock/blues musicians, so musicians, bring your instruments you are welcome to come and jam! After our last experience with a long term winter workawayer, and after careful consideration, we have decided to close our doors from September through to spring 2014. Long term winter stays here are not for the faint hearted without some degree of fiscal independence and a vehicle.
Área: ConnachtWe are full for 2014 -- thank you to all at work away! Hi, we run a hostel in a very scenic part of Connemara in the west of Ireland. With views of a lake in front and mountains to the rear, we attract guests who enjoy cycling, hill walking, landscape painting, photography and nature. The hostel is 12 KM from the vibrant town of Clifden. All buses to Clifden and Galway will stop at our front gate. We have beds for 40 guests. We would welcome some students to help out a few hours a day in the hostel. You will have a lot of free time to enjoy Connemara and explore. Our spoken language is English. If you can play music then all the better! We have no staff ... the hostel is run by a group of volunteers who love Connemara.
Área: Languedoc RoussillonWe run a guesthouse in the Aude, a beautiful part of France. We have been here for 8 years and we love it, but it is a large house and has a lot of grounds so we could do with some help - general repairs and lots to do in the garden! My partner Alan and I are from Scotland. We love it here it is very picturesque, with the lovely rolling hills and the green countryside. We have five dogs, a cat, a parrot and some chickens all very time consuming and that is before I mention the guests! If you'd like to join us and enjoy this part of France please get in touch
