Region: 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

Region: Engadin/SwitzerlandWe are a couple, Leah (30) and Michel (39), with two small babys running a bed and breakfast in Scuol (Engadin) in the mountains. The hostel includes 4 rooms, shower and toilet on the landing. The b&b is located in an old house, typical of the area. The b&b is situated in the heart of Scuol with small shops nearby and only a few minutes away from the thermal and wellness baths. The guests enjoy their breakfast in a cosy living room. In the evening they can benefit from the free use of the kitchen. Scuol is a lovely but quite small village in the Engadin in the middle of the mountains. It’s an ideal location for winter- and summer sport.

The 3 properties (we live in 1 of them) are situated in 3 hectares, with a private pool, a lake, spectacular views of the Pyrennees and very rural, we are 15 mins drive away from the closest town, where young night life is very limited. We have 2 dogs, a Boxer and a Terrier, a handful of chickens. Mums an artist and runs the gites and loves her big vegetable garden, (a great cook too), Dads a builder who is very busy. 1 daughter travelling and a son the at Uni. We are a very easy going household. We are looking for help in May to tidy up the terraces and gardens and general maintenance. We are also looking for help in the summer of 2014 with the gites changeovers and gardening in exchange for free accomodation in a mobile home.
