Area: UmbriaA small country resort (B&B, pool, solarium and a small gym) set in the middle of a natural park overlooking lake Trasimeno and the surrounding hills. From March to November guests (max 22) from allover the world are welcomed in a casual and informal atmosphere. Beautiful historical towns such as Cortona, Castiglione, Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Gubbio, ecc. are only 20 to 40 minutes away by car. Florence is 1 hour by train and Rome 1 hour and 40 minutes also by train. I run the resort all by myself with just a cleaning lady and an occasional help by a gardener. Help needed mainly at breakfast and cleaning indoor/outdoor.

Area: Auvergne - Puy de DômeWe are Peter & Lya and we have been living for 6 years in the Auvergne - Puy de Dome, a beautiful area in Central France. The name of the village is Besse et Saint Anastaise. This is a very popular tourist area and in summer everything is in full color with plenty to see and do, while in winter the ski resort of SuperBesse is just around the corner. We have a Chambre d'hôte with 5 bedrooms and a 2-room apartment. After a year of rebuilding are the proud owners of a fully restored property and we have been running a successful business for the past 5 years. For me, every guest is important, and must have the feeling that he / she is the first guest to stay in one of our rooms. Peter's hobby is property rebuilding, renovation and renewal.
Area: RajasthanWe would love your help booking and traveling with our camel safari. On our trips you can expect to sleep under the stars in a beautiful non-touristic location and see the Thar Desert dunes on camel back! It is possible to visit many villages and cool spots along the way too! Our hotel/house is in a prime location within the fort. The rooms are decorated with beautiful tiny murals of flowers and quotes reminding us to "trust life." Currently we are working on making the rooftop into a cafe, and so we hope to finish that soon... maybe with your help! We are also interested in finding someone to help us with reception and waiting tables, if you are interested in that sort of work. Room and board will be free if you are willing to help us out! We also have an organic farm that has been in the family for hundreds of years. We would love to see you at our farm so we can learn about your culture and your country, as well as teach you our culture and work.

At the farm there are 380 people all from our family working, with opportunities for all kinds of different work - from helping with the farm to teaching the kids. We hope to see you here!
