Area: SkinnskattebergAre you eager and willing to learn new things and enjoy doing practical things? We are looking for motivated volunteers with a great work attitude. Warm welcome to our B&B and conference, starting point for your workaway adventures. Our B&B is located in the middle of a small village overlooking a lake with a lot off outdoor possibilities like hiking, biking, fishing and swimming. In 2009 we converted the old school – originally built in 1880 - into a modern and cosy B&B with 6 rooms. Nature and quietness awaits you in the wonderful surroundings. In our B&B with a warm atmosphere and personal attention we try to work according to ecotourism principles. We serve and use as much as possible locally produced food and products. During the season we have apples and raspberries from our own garden. If you plan to come in the autumn we will guide you to the best mushroom and berrie spots in the ecopark. We help you to have a great time. Joyce & Marnix and Nino (our dog)

Area: Languedoc RoussillonI am an ex-firefighter who studied Fine art and Sculpture at university. I live with my two lovely children ( age 14 and 5) in a very small village in the Aude region. Not far from the border with the Ariege region, 15 minutes from Mirepoix, 1 hour from Toulouse , 35 minutes from Carcassonne. Home is an old stone house with 2 holiday cottages attached, there is a large garden and pool. We share this with our small dog, 2 cats and several hens (and our guests of course!) . It would be lovely to share all this for a few weeks with 2 people travellling together.

Area: BrittanyWe are a Franco-New Zealand-British family living in scenic Brittany. We have 4 children - a 6year old little boy and 3 big ones who are away studying but are often here during weekends and holidays. We are close to the historic towns of St Malo and Dinan and only 40mins from the spectacular Mont St Michel. As we have lived in the area for many years and have children at school we are very much part of the local community. We have our own local beach (and resident seal) only 800metres away and are close to many other great beaches as well. Two years ago we moved into our large old home, known as a 'maison de maitre' which we are busily restoring. We are also creating appartments in the 300 year old barn. Our aim is to restore the buildings in an ecologically-sound manner. We are looking for enthusiastic people who are keen to help us in our restoration project in return for experiencing a little bit of French life. Marc and the children are the French ones so their accents are better than Kate's but we can all help if you want to improve your French. We live within a short walk of the local village with it's boulangerie, creperie, cafes and bars and cider factory. As in most of Brittany, the area is steeped in history and traditions and we can share our knowledge of the area, its customs, cuisine and music. We are a couple who have both travelled widely and lived in several other countries. We love meeting people from elsewhere and delight in sharing our knowledge and experience of life here in France. We love the workaway concept and our experience with workaway over the last 18 months has been fantastic - we have met many wonderful and interesting people and have made life-long friends.
