Area: Midi PyreneesHi, we are an English / Dutch couple who live the beautiful Dordogne River Valley in Lot, SW France. We have a large gite (holiday home) in the former farmhouse, our own accommodation in the former barn, and grounds, which take up most of our time – together with the management of other gîtes and holiday homes nearby ! We are friendly, and pretty easy to get along with. We are looking for enthusiastic workawayers to help us get the property shipshape for the summer letting season in 2015. We have a stone wall to complete, some patio construction and tiling, a pool area to make good after the installation of a brand new one, gardening and general outside maintenance work to complete. We also need to do some work in the gite including inventory check and some painting. The area in which we live is rural, with the nearest market town (bars and restaurants, plus usual amenities) being around 3kms away. One bicycle!! We are close to many of the Plus Beaux Villages de France which are historic and some medieval in origin. The river Dordogne is just fifteen minutes drive from here and is great for canoeing, swimming and picnicking. We will happily take you to see some of these places as they are not to be missed - or you can take the bike or your own transport!! We are in the midst of a farming community and our neighbours are friendly and welcoming for they love their countryside. We have a mixture of friends - French, English, Dutch, American, German, South African and Australian - and meals can be noisy and fun when people drop by........ We are looking for bright volunteers available for a minimum of a week.
Area: Puerto MonttOur place is a homestay type hostal. We provide service like in your own house for our guest so our main goal is tranquility and a place where travelers or working people can rest during their time in Puerto Montt. We also have a car rental service for our passengers and transfer service to airport and bus station. We believe in small hostels where home-warm can be found, not like big hotels. We provide home made food with local resources and specialities. This project begun 3 years ago in my house and now we bought the house next door, so we have a lot to do to prepare it for the travellers. I study classical guitarr, psychology and french. I have studied german and mandarin chinese as well, but i need to go on with these languages. So you can be here to teach us french as well, we are frour students trying to get higher french level, right now we are in basics... On March 2014 we took part of a recycling program in our city. For that we began a recycling company and we collect all kind of plastic bottles of soda, cola and juice. Then we process them and send to final recycling plant. So we need people interested in contribution to develop this program in schools, universities, organizations, etc, promoving and doing work with people. We would like to receive boys or girls who have a big commitment to help others and who can feel part of us in our house. In resume, we need someone who can teach French, or someone who can do housekeeping in our hostel. P.D.: please read and note that we can receive only one person at a time. I strongly ask for this because of many request we got from couples or more than one people.
