Area: Prangli islandMy name is Tiina, my husbands name is Iivar. We are a 51 years old couple, daughter Siiri is 26 and Son Lauri is 20. We have a grandson Hannes 5. We are a recreational farm on the island of Prangli, in Estonia. Prangli is a beautiful small island! Our beautiful sandy beaches are only 500 m away.Distances from Tallinn 25 km. We are a very busy b&b hosting various events nearly every weekend during summer months and we could really use help from hard working, fun loving volunteers who would appreciate the beauty of our place and love interacting with customers and locals. Volunteering help always needed ! In return, we would offer 3 meals a day a cozy bed to sleep and just a great experience. It is also possible to order the local boat "Helge" and its transportation service to carry out visits to other small island around the area.

Area: Vallee baguilllere, Hameau de Garbet, Commune de BENAC, National Park of Ariege PyreneesHi you wonderful people. We have 2 couple or two single vacancies here from mid May 2014 until end of September! Skills, enthusiasm and reliability is key to coming here. We prefer people who want to come for the longer term as our best experiences have been when we really get to know people, and that takes time of course. So now to the Spam !! Hello again, I was previously a world traveler and adventurer. Now settled in the Pyrenees with Virginia my wife, we have a lovely house and farmland (see pix below) We aspire to eco development, the house already is carbon neutral with power supplied by photovoltaic solar panels. We have a lot of land and forest and live at 600metres above sea level. This altitude guarantees 4 seasons, Spring is glorious and begins very early by European standards Summer is guaranteed to be lovely weather without it ever (!) becoming unbearably hot, Autumn is fabulous with all the hardwood leaves of the forests turning the whole area into an artists canvas, Winter we have usually two big dumps of snow between December to late Feb early March there is great skiing (three resorts - approx.one hour away). We have 2 'sheep' dogs (see photo) - Kiltie has her own flock to practice on (at present 5 sheep), super friendly cats. In the recent past we have also kept pigs chickens goats ducks sheep etc etc. We always kill and eat our own livestock personally. Everything here gets a good life (and respectful death). The reason we have downsized the farm is because we have a 45' sailing ketch moored at the moment in Gibraltar and we have been spending long periods on the boat in a large restoration project (she is wooden and an American classic - we sailed her across the Atlantic). So now the boat is practically finished and we have to get the farm running again. I have a tractor (massey 70hp) plough harrow etc etc., a tracked digger and a dumper, two chainsaws etc etc. What we were hoping to accomplish this winter is to clear a piece of forest about 10 acres in size. We want to bring it back to pasture and mill all the wood we take out. In addition, we would like to maintain the veggy garden up and restore a beautiful barn (1840) as the roof has caved in and the stone walls need restoring etc etc. Where we live abounds in wildlife and birdlife, you can walk ride,ski, bike, anywhere you want, as far as Spain if you want, you will never come across a sign that says "Keep Out - Private Property" like in England (Ugh.) Life is good here, and in return for good honest work (see note below *) we can offer convivial company and accommodation, food is included as is wine. We are considered to be a good and creative cooks (and after saying this now we will have to prove it!) and like to share cooking with any-one who is interested in learning or who already has skills. I am very happy to pass along my skills to any-one interested in every facet of the project etc. So, send an e-mail with a description of who you are, what you like and perhaps a photo of yourself. This position is open to all regardless of race, sex, religion,lactose intolerance, age, number of heads etc., Aliens however, need to send me a telepathic response! We are not smokers (dope or baccy) and if we have the choice we always go for non smokers! Cheers Barry PS We speak English and French PPS We are omnivores but are happy to accommodate veggies if they are also tolerant.

Area: OhioMy husband and I run a pet care facility for dogs and cats. We are in our 50's. We take the dogs out for trail walks on our 4 acres, provide daily care, cleaning up after the pets, and bathing/grooming. They say if you love what you do that you never have to work a day in your life....so we are very happy. While our beautiful spot in the hills is wooded and feels like the country, we are within two miles of major shopping areas. One of the largest parks in the Eastern U.S. with hiking and canoeing begins less than a mile away. Also at the park is a vintage train-if you pay two dollars, you can ride with your bike and then bike back (or ride both ways!) If you like the arts, we have many museums and two famous symphonies within a one hour drive. We are in Akron, 45 minutes drive from Cleveland and Lake Erie and the islands. We have a nice mountain bike to lend and can provide some transportation depending on the business hours too. If you are improving your English speaking, I have a Masters from the Dept. of English from Bowling Green State University in 2001 and as a graduate student have taught Freshman Composition with many students in the ESL program (English as a Second Language). So I won't teach you bad English!
