Area: MallorcaWelcome to our small finca in the centre of the beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca. We have approx 4 acres, on which we predominantly grow almonds and figs. We also have a few carob trees, and a variety of citrus trees. Having lived here for 8 years we are still in the midst of reforming and enlarging the original house which is about 100 years old. There is never a shortage of tasks that need to be done, even though we have had professional help with most of the building. We have realised that we need some help around the place if I am to stop going grey! As hubby (Bob) works full time (we have a marine engineering business) and I (Pat) do contract work on events that often takes me abroad to pay the bills, some of the tasks on the ever increasing list are slipping the net. You need to love dogs (we currently have 5 boisterous hounds) and cats (5 at the moment!); plus 2 pigs, chickens and 4 sheep - and we need to fence off more areas and build appropriate shelters for them. Apart from the regular tasks around the finca and house we also have a large number of boats and numerous classic Land Rovers in various stages of being dismantled or as restoration projects. Basically if you have common sense, a mature attitude and a willingness to help then please contact us. We are about 2km from Sineu, which has very easy train access to Palma and occasional buses to other local villages, and has a multitude of bars, shops and restaurants, post office, medical centre, and one the island’s largest markets every Wednesday. We are not listed as organic but do not use any chemicals on the land and endeavour to be as Eco and environmentally friendly as possible in all that we do. Our electricity is by solar power, with generator back up for those occasion times that the sun does not shine. Yes - it does rain here, thankfully, as that helps fill our underground water tank, with tanker top ups in the summer. We do have WiFi, though the signal can sometimes be poor. We can be flexible with days and hours (in the summer ideally work is done early morning and late afternoon/evening to avoid the heat) but do ask that at least one weekend day is worked so that help can be given to us with any of the heavier, multi-handed, or bulkier tasks. We are both English, and Pat speaks some Spanish. Please do not hesitate to contact us for a chat if you would like more information.

Area: Santa FeA small history of my arrival at Alvear ... I lived and grew up in Rosario, a city near Alvear, till i turned 21 years, then travel to Los Angeles resident for 2 years and a half. From there I always had the idea of going to live in the country that could narrow in recent year 2011 ... since then I am renovating the house and the place where I'm living now ... The experience of traveling know that it's the best money invested, so I like to share part of my life with those who embark on this challenge. My personal tastes are enjoy nature, tranquility and watch the sunset from the patio of my house after cutting the grass, making a seat or a table. As I'm usually active working with my hands to share after a chat with one kill. I teach high school in Rosario, so I go to the city 3 times a week. Una pequena historia de mi llegada a Alvear...Viví y creci en Rosario, una ciudad cercana a Alvear, hasta mis 21 anos, luego viaje a Los Angeles residiendo por 2 anos y medio. Desde ahi siempre tuve la idea de ir a vivir al campo que recien pude concretar en el ano 2011... desde entonces estoy recuperando la casa y el lugar donde estoy viviendo ahora... La experiencia de viajar hace saber que es el mejor dinero invertido, por lo que me gusta compartir parte de mi vida con aquellas personas que se embarcaran a ese desafio. Mis gustos personales son disfrutar de la naturaleza, la tranquilidad y ver un atardecer desde el patio de mi casa, luego de haber cortado el pasto, fabricar un asiento o una mesa. Por lo que generalmente estoy en actividad trabajando con mis manos para despues compartir una charla con uno mates. Soy profesor de la escuela secundaria en Rosario, por lo que voy a la ciudad 3 veces a la semana.
Area: EnglandWe are a traditional English country pub in a small village beside the coast in North Devon. We serve real ales, home-made food, and run regular acoustic music nights (with your host on the fiddle), games night and discussion groups (agnostics anonymous with the local vicar), and promote internaional arts events such as Tunde Jgede and Arve Henriksson. We are busy with holiday-makers and residents alike, and the pub is an important part of the community here. Meals are generally provided from the pub kitchen, though we can easily cater for most diets. We are a friendly team here and we welcome new faces. Bill lives at the pub with his three-legged dog, Lucy, and occasionally you may find other family and friends staying with him. We are non-smoking throughout. We have free wi-fi.
