Area: Barcelona (Catalonia)Please, read all the info and check the calendar before applying for any position! This way, you and us will save time and energy! Thanks in advance and happy travels! In July and August we cannot host you in Vilanova, but my parents could host you in Santa Maria de Besora, a wonderful small town near the Pyrenees, at 1h drive from Barcelona. It's an incredible spot in the mountains, perfect for nature lovers and people that like hiking or cycling in an unspoiled environment. They need help for painting and varnishing doors and windows, as well as doing small repairs in a 200 year old house. If staying with my parents, you would work 4,5 hours a day and you would get accommodation in a private bedroom and delicious meals (my mother cooks really well). My mother likes talking, so you could practice your Spanish, too! September to December: We are looking for a handyman here in Vilanova, or someone with any of these abilities: re-plastering old walls, tiling or building skills. A good painter would be welcome, too. We could also host a native English speaker that could teach Maths at a high school level in English to our eldest son. We could also host native English speaking people willing to work with the boys, teaching them how to create apps for the mobile, editing videos and pictures (or also hockey in line and piano!), and helping us with the home maintenance. From September, we offer you to stay in a lovely place near Barcelona and by the beach, swapping 2 hours of honest work a day for a first class accommodation in a sunny studio with your own kitchenette, bathroom and terrace. No meals included. In a pedestrian street and close to everywhere! We are a family of 4: Vicent (teaches German), Imma (psychologist) Marçal (14 years old avid reader, roller-skater and piano player) and Arnau (12 years old active and smiley boy fond of ski and in-line hockey).We love travelling and enjoy having travellers at home. We do home exchange when travelling, as we like living as locals, and we are fond of languages. We are open minded people that like enrolling in open air activities: going to the beach, hiking, skiing, reading and learning new skills.

Area: Sverige, Värmland, Sunne KommunOur dream: simply good living! Since 2013 we live and work on our farm in beautiful Värmland, in the borderregion between Sweden and Norway. But not only the impressing location on the edge of Finnskogen brought us here, rather our farm is a lifelong self-sustainability-experiment for us! We want to live in and with the nature around us and we want to feel the earth beneath our feet. Here a permaculture-project with animal keeping will be created in the coming few years on approximately 10 acres. The nearby 20-acres forest gives us enough wood for keeping the house warm in winter in a sustainable way and also enough to produce some building material. The Kymsälven flowing over the plot also creates possibilities for the use of renewable energy. Who are we Currently we live as a 3-person-family permanently here on the farm and welcome guests and interested people who want to live and work with us for a few days or for a longer period of time. In addition to our self-sufficiency project we ( Laura 34 , Mark 37) work here as social workers and systemic coaches. Our daughter Nele (3) visits the Swedish kindergarten. We are from Germany and live here since 2013. We speak German , Swedish, English and a little Spanish and French.
