Área: South West EnglandWe are a cheerful, outgoing couple with a small, friendly, and hard-working team running an eco holiday business in the countryside with self-catering accommodation and glamping (posh camping), plus sustainable activities. Our activities include wild food, bush craft, archery, cookery, crafts, food & drink. For volunteers, there is the opportunity to learn more about wild food, bush craft, etc, as well as spending time in a positive and inspiring environment, with fun, intelligent people. We are interested in sustainability, organic growing, and we love cooking & eating good, fresh food. Our house is set in 10 acres of organically managed land, in a stunning location, with wonderful views, on the edge of a pretty village, it's very peaceful. The area is great for wildlife and walking (with footpaths from our drive onto a stunning nature reserve) as well as mountain biking. We (and our team) are easy to get along with, and everyone in our business is treated with respect, whatever their role.
Área: OlymposThe Bar is a world famous open air bar located at a Tree houses (Olympos, Turkey). It is run by a friendly and hospitable team of Turks. The Bar is open from 11pm to 3am every night. People come from near and far to party hard to the resident DJs' music. The Treehouses, where volunteers will be staying, is a 15-20 minute walk to the beautiful Olympos beach. There is access the beach as people pass through the heritage listed ruins of the ancient Lycian pirate city.
Área: Poitou CharentesWe moved out to France, along with our 2 rescue dogs, in 2007. After spending more money than we had anticipated to renovate our house we decided to open a bed and breakfast in 2010. We are ideally situated just 20 kms from Puy du Fou (with its spectacular night shows 'Cinescenie') and are pleased to receive guests from all over France, with many return customers! We've also had many guests from all over Europe and international guests have come from as far as New Zealand, South Africa and U.S.A. Running a chambres d'hotes (B & B) has been very rewarding, we've met some wonderful people, but it is also hard work. This means that we are unable to do as much general maintenance and gardening as we would like. Our main season is May to September. If someone would like to stay and help out during this period, if all 3 rooms are fully booked, we also have a caravan in the garden, with electric. Of course meals would be taken with us. During quieter periods, there would be a double guest room available. During the main season, the work would involve helping with the running of the B & B, grass cutting (we do have a tractor lawnmower!) painting and general house and garden maintenance. We also have a small pond. During other periods, there's always gardening and maintenance to be done, painting and cleaning and preparing for the next season! (our stables could do with re-roofing too)
