Area: Rhone AlpsHello thanks to all helpers for this year. We'll be looking for helpers again from spring 2014........We need independent, energetic people who enjoy variety and who like kids. We are a family of four, two children 9 and 6yrs, Leon a British wine specialist with a wine shop here in Tarentaise and Jo a qualified secondary school and EFL teacher with nearly 20 years experience. We live in a tiny hamlet with a couple of all year round neighbours within one km and the nearest town is 5mins away by car. Our aim is to enjoy our beautiful natural environment to the max and make and produce as much of what we consume as possible. When lunch or supper comes entirely from our garden and our effort it tastes even more delicious!! Our garden ( fruit and veg) is organic and at present we are establishing irrigation systems from local springs. We are hard workers, enjoy having all sorts of projects and adventures, we love music, chatting and sharing a glass of wine over good food and meeting new people. PLEASE NOTE We only host from May to October and we are only taking 1 to 2 month stay. If you contact us please be ready to make a decision and commit firmly as tending to a long list of enquiries with lots of follow up then no more news is not conducive to getting our projects underway. We welcome committed enquiries tho'!
Area: ScotlandWe live on a small-holding of 38 acres in Scotland just on the edge of a small town in Perthshire. We have two self-catering holiday cottages and a small livery yard for local horse owners. We have two dogs, three cats and three rescue ponies. We're looking for help to tidy up the garden, do general maintenance, painting and decorating, field work and occasional help with the animals. Some help with cottage change-over days (Saturday) which can be hectic if guests leave late/arrive early! I prefer Workawayers over the age of 21 and who are well used to fending for themselves, I'm too busy to be someone's mum! A good command of the English language is also necessary.

Area: MarcheWe are husband and wife, young couple, looking for someone who can teach us SINGING: modern, jazz, or opera. In exchange we offer conversation in Italian and a pleasant stay in Italy. We consider people from Italy and from other countries, as we speak - besides Italian - English, a little German and a little Spanish. Having someone from abroad would also entail more cultural exchange and language practice and we are always looking forward to it. We love music, cinema, theatre, literature, philosophy... anything cultural. We also love nature, especially hiking in the mountains or spending time by the sea.
