Area: Gironde. ( Dordogne boarder)Our 37 hectare farm & Vineyard is located on the boarder of three departments (Dordogne, Gironde & Lot et Garonne) We have 11 hectares of vines, Merlot, Cab Sav, Cab Franc, Semillon & Muscadelle which are all in the Bordeaux AOC and we are also in the process of restoring an old Farmhouse and Barn. We are a fully certified Organic Vineyard with EcoCert. We are David & Amanda (mid 40s), Florence 8 & Martha 9. We arrived here in February 2010 and its fair to say that there has never been a dull moment since! The rest of the residents consist of two horses, a few hens, five cats and Buffy the dog. Accommodation is in a five birth caravan or you can bring your own tent. We can offer workers a variety of experiences here ranging from all aspects of vineyard work, land management, restoration projects, building work, painting, organic and Biodynamic veg production, gardening, poly tunnel growing, managing the horses and even the odd spot of child minding. There is always a project on the go! We also welcome tourists here and provide wine tasting, vineyard lunches and tours so good communication skills are essential if you want to get involved with this bit of the business. We welcome workawayers who are non-smokers and who want to get stuck into some hard work. You must also be prepared to do a few household chores at the end of the day too ie help with the dishes ;-] We find that our environment seems to suit couples and people travelling in pairs really well although we may consider individuals if they are happy to share accommodation. In return we will make sure you enjoy yourself, get you involved with whatever is going on locally and share good food & wine and offer you the chance to experience this wonderful place.

Area: EnglandI need help with decorating and DIY in my home overlooking the sea on the south coast of England. I am an artist and teacher. I have a studio space in the house which volunteers are welcome to use. St Leonards on sea is part of Hastings and is a mecca for creative characters. The road I live in is a lovely bohemian mix of antique and craft shops, artists studios and cafes. I am fairly quiet and spend quite a lot of time reading , meditating and painting but I also like enjoying the vast range of cafes, pubs and restaurants on offer locally. This placement would probably suit a slightly older self-reliant person ( over 25) who also enjoys some of the activities I do. Although it might suit a younger person who enjoys a quieter environment.

Avec les beaux jours , nos activites sont essentiellement a l'exterieur : jardin, debroussaillage, travaux d'entretien et renovation de la grange (en eco construction) et autres projets... La riviere est aussi un lieu tres important de ressourcement, de baignade et de petits chantiers pour en nettoyer les rives. j'espere attaquer un de ces 4 une mosaique dans la maison etc... Bienvenue donc aux personnes aimant la nature et ayant le coeur et l'esprit ouverts. PS: la viande n'est pas exclue mais effectivement nous ne chassons pas et nous avons souvent des choix plus alternatifs. Cependant Luigi en est gourmand et parfois nous en trouvons de la bonne !! Aucun sectarisme mais des choix que nous esperons coherents.
