Area: CharenteWe are a young German-Italian couple who now nearly four years ago moved onto an old farm in South-West France. Our dream: we want to be self-sufficient and run a small riding stable for classical dressage. We chose the farm, because it is secluded and sourrounded by 30 hectars of meadows and woods, close to the lovely ancient town of Angouleme (10 min.), a cycle ride to the charente river for canoing, swimming and fishing, 1 hour from the sea and of course it is right next to the Cognac region! It is beautiful, but a lot of work ... (the extent of which we did not realise when setting out): in the 4 years, with the help from many volunteers, family and friends, we have turned most of the main house into a cozy home using natural building materials such as hemp and clay, made our own hay to get our horses through winter, fenced the fields, planted some hedges and trees, cut down a whole invasive bamboo forest, made our own fire wood, did a lot of weeding of toxic plants by hand and tried to integrate as much as possible into the small nearby village... Our stable is now open (we are the first in this region of France to offer this modern stabling concept) and we are gathering forces for the next project stage, which involves renovating the guest house.... Do you see yourself helping with the building? Volunteers will be accomodated in a double room in the main house and food is provided. You would be working 5 hours work per day, 5 days per week. Weekends are off.... (However you are expected to help with cleaning the house and cooking outside those working hours!) If you are interested write us an Email
Area: Sibiu - HermannstadtWe are a young couple that for 3 years traveled the world to find each other and the perfect place for us… But in the end it was the place that found us right back home, in our country. Imagine the surprise when, while visiting our family and friends, during a fun day trip we come across the most magical place. If you ever decide to join us, you will see it, you will feel it as well, we are sure of that. Right that day we decided to make an offer on the place, and after months off work, trying to convince the owner to sell, it was finally ours. The strange feeling about being tied to a place like this is the freedom that it gives you. This place made us discover ourselves, it will do the same for you. We believe in this small propriety of 8.000 square meters, situated in Hosman, 20 km near Sibiu ( Hermannstadt ) - a city ranked by Forbes as the Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live, and a city that was in 2007, the European Capital of Culture – just saying ;)… What we loved most from our trips was meeting new people, making friends all around the world, and this is the reason we decided to share our dream project with all of you. We are young, and what we lack in experience we make up in enthusiasm and determination. It will be our great pleasure to have you here with us, building, exchanging ideas, becoming richer in spirit and having a blast while doing it.

Area: Nueva Loja - Sucumbios - EcuadorWe are a family that lives close to the Ecuadorian Amazon. If you want to join us, there are many things you can do, for example... social work in the city or in a school, organize adventures with teens, or help me in the garden.

We will provide you food and sometimes we will cook together, but you can always use the kitchen. My family just speaks Spanish, so it's your chance to improve your language knowledge. We all are really social and love spending time together, for example watching movies or just chatting.
