Area: AndaluciaWe live on a 3-hectare land in the province of Granada (Spain) and have a "big" project : to adapt our life in order to be able to: - satisfy ourselves to a maximum of our needs (mainly those of energy and food); - minimise our impact on the environment; - have time to evolve in a responsible way and help others. We'd love to meet people interested in permaculture and in the idea of living well, while respecting the social and natural environment.
Area: AlentejoIn May 2011 Caroline and I, Richard, moved onto 55 acres , 22 hectares of protected land with a lake, great for cooling off in. The land is a ten minute drive from the town of Ourique and a forty minute drive to the Algarve. With over 300 days of sunshine this why we chose to live here. We are in process of setting up an eco friendly naturist campsite,clothes optional. We will only ever have 10 pitches. As they say small is beautiful! Set in the middle of the countryside. We have a cafe/bar about 250 metres from our front gates. We are looking, for people who are easy going and laid back and like the naturist lifestyle or do not mind working among naturists. Before we go on, we should point out that we do have free roaming horses and very friendly dogs. All our power comes from solar panels, with back up generators. We have a bore hole for water, and a well. We have a number of ruins and a house which we are currently using for storage. Anyone, male or female, can do the jobs we are/will will be doing. As long as you love the outdoors and are reasonably fit you will enjoy the various projects we are undertaking. The best part of it is that you can see how we are progressing as we have a blog on our website. So whatever help you give us you will see the results of your efforts, and of course our thanks. Unless of course you have your own transport, we would offer to pick you up from the train station in Funcheira, or the bus station in Ourique.
Area: Midi PyreneesWe now need volunteers from the start of June. We offer comfortable and spacious accommodation with internet access and three scrumptious meals a day at our farm house in the south of France in exchange for 4 hours work a day, Monday to Saturday. Invitation We have had several working holiday volunteers during 2013, and have found the experience so enriching that we are definitely doing it again this year ! We live deep in the heart of rural Gascony, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, less than 2 hours from the Spanish border, ski slopes and Atlantic ocean. Our 400 year old farm house and its 22 acres is located in the heart of the Cote de Gascogne vineyards. We live here with our dog, 2 cats and 4 horses (at last count). Ours is a very lively region (probably due to the copious amounts of excellent wine produced here) and especially in the summer, with a large choice of festivals, fiestas, fairs and fetes to attend each week-end. Within 10 minutes of our house there is a vibrant town, dating from the 1200's, with all amenities including several bars, restaurants, tabacs, pharmacies, supermarkets, a cinema, a motor racing course and a weekly market. I am French-speaking and my husband is Scottish, so you can learn/improve both English and French here and we are very active in our local community. This will give you lots of opportunities to mix with the locals, a generous, welcoming and gregarious lot. Our volunteers live in the house with us, in single or double rooms, sharing a shower room. Meals are taken with us and with our other guests – we host horse riding and wine tasting holidays in the summer season. Our volunteers work 6 days a week, Mo-Sat for 4 hours, usually in the mornings to avoid the worst heat of the day and have the rest of the day free to explore the region – there is loads to do and discover. We don't usually expect help with the cooking, unless you are particularly passionate about food, but appreciate help with getting plates and cutlery into the dishwasher after meals. We have a very simple policy with regards to our volunteers : We have found that the more we give, the more we receive – so much so that we often have to insist that they STOP working at the end of a shift, they seem forever to be « just finishing this » or « doing just this one thing more ». Our main project this year will be the renovation of the house and the land. We always appreciate help with the horses, although you do not have to know anything about horses or be able to ride. We have had volunteers from all over the world – it literally feels as if the world has come to us – and of all ages. We can only accommodate two volunteers at any one time - either a couple or two singles. Some of our friends also offer working holidays, and whenever we can, we try to get together so that our volunteers can meet each other. The people of our community are also very keen to find out more about our volunteers and their home countries – the fact that most of our volunteers do not speak much French never seems to be a problem, especially not after a glass or two of white or red. If any of the above sounds appealing, please let us know asap. Without wanting to sound presumptuous, I do get swamped with applications and would appreciate an e-mail telling me a bit more about yourself, what you expect from a working holiday and what you can contribute, to help me choose. We are looking forward to hearing from you !
Area: Saint-André-de-Roquepertuis, Gard, Languedoc-RoussillonMy name is Pierre, I'm married to Céline and we have a child Vincent (born in 2008). I build my house of straw, wood frame, technical GREB (walls and roof were finished in February 2014) Actually I'm working inside. I'll become a farmer / organic baker. My life change comes from the birth of my son. On outgoing nature, I love to talk and share what I've learned. I like listening to hard rock, but I'm open to all music ;-) Je m'appelle Pierre, je suis marié à Céline et nous avons un enfant Vincent (né en 2008). Je construis ma maison en paille, ossature bois, technique GREB. (les murs et le toit sont finis depuis février 2014) Je construis l'intérieur de la maison maintenant. Je vais devenir paysan/boulanger bio. Mon changement de vie vient de la naissance de mon fils. D'une nature extravertie, j'aime beaucoup parler, et transmettre ce que j'ai déjà appris. J'aime bien écouté du hard rock, mais je suis ouvert à toutes les musiques ;-)
