Área: Surathani / Koh PhanganWe live on Koh Phangan, my 10 year old daughter and me. I produce homemade Products like Jam, and Yoghurt and many more things which I sell to Supermarkets and Restaurants. I rescue Animals and mainly Horses or Ponies which got badly treated of their owners or just left behind somewhere. It cost me lot of Time and Money to get them back in a good Condition. I work together with Phangan Animal Care and rescue dogs/puppies which get dumped and also help the dogs in my Area. We have at the moment about 11 Dogs and 3 Cats.I am planning on setting up an organic Garden but for now I still struggle with the Owner of the Land . My Internet is very slow and sometimes very unpredictable so please be patient for my answer. Sorry we have NO WIFI!!!!!
Área: TuscanyWe are an Italian family living in Bagni di Lucca, in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. We need help in the home and with our English language skills. We live in a village called Guzzano in a typical Tuscan home with 3 children 2 boys, 1 girl and a dog called Dorethea. We are looking for someone who speaks a little Italian and so would be able to teach our children English. We need help in the home with housework and cooking meals and with our childrens English homework and by talking to us in English this will also help the whole families language skills. In addition there may be outside work such as gardening, tidying and sweeping up. We also are really interested in people who have violin or music to help one of the children with their music lessons. Please note all meals are included you will only have to pay for food on your days off and if you choose to eat out.
Área: ScotlandWe are a family of four with teenage sons who are now mostly away. We own a beautiful 40 acre croft on a Scottish Island called Lismore. It is a long, slim island situated at the mouth of the great Glen in loch Linnhe and is easy to get to; (5 min from Appin and 50 min from Oban by boat). This is a lush, fertile island with incredible views of the surrounding mountains and waters. Our vision is to create a beautiful and inspirational nugget of Scotland where we can live self sufficiently and gently on the land, however we have a lot to do to get there and need plenty of help. I am a textile artist and run my business from a studio on the croft. I run textile retreats as well as make products and commissions for sale. My husband is a house builder however he will soon turn his focus to all the things that need attending to on our land. We have 38 Shetland sheep, 3 hens, 3 cats and one dog so if you're allergic to animal hair or dust, best stear clear! We are easy going, sociable and both love and play music. We are non smokers and we do eat meat but lots of salads and vegetables too. The community of Lismore is a vibrant and sociable one with a population of around 180. There are lots of activities including cinema nights, country dancing, house ceilidh's, concerts and more but be warned, there is no pub on the island and only one shop. Sarah runs the community choir so singers are always welcome. Everybody knows each other here and it is a bit like a very large family.

Área: AlmeriaEleven years ago my husband and I decided to leave the U K for Andalucia in Southern Spain. Here we bought eleven thousand square meters of land and had our ideal home built, just outside the small mountain village of Bedar. Since my husband's death, 5 years ago, I have continued to live in Spain as I have many friends here and I love the country, its people and the Winter climate.I often fly back to England and to Switzerland to visit my daughters and grandchildren and they enjoy coming here for their holidays, especially as I have a lovely swimming pool and they can go to the sea. Mojacar, the nearest coastal resort,is 20mins drive away and I have seaviews from my home. I was a secondary school English teacher before I took early retirement and I still do some private tuition when asked. I consider myself to be a young 60ish and I like to keep active by walking, playing golf and boules.I have also taken up new creative hobbies such as painting , pottery and photography. Gardening is one of my favourite pursuits, although with such a large area, I do have some help with this and always need more. Entertaining friends is another enjoyable and regular activity .I have a beautiful garden courtyard which is ideal for get-to-gethers . In the village I have friends from Spain, Germany,and France as well as U K and as I have travelled widely myself, I enjoy the mix of European cultures and languages.
