Area: EnglandHi, we live in a beautiful old country house (very typically english) in the North of England close to the Yorkshire Dales. We grow cut flowers and greenery here in our garden and sell them locally at markets, for weddings and as pick your own. Our family consists of us - Barney and Clarey (both mid 30's), our 3yr old twin boys and little girl who is 1. We also share our lives with Laddie the dog, 4 chickens and 1 small gold fish. Live is busy and fun and what we love most is being outside making the most of the beautiful countryside around us.
Area: Vallee baguilllere, Hameau de Garbet, Commune de BENAC, National Park of Ariege PyreneesHi you wonderful people. We have 2 couple or two single vacancies here from mid May 2014 until end of September! Skills, enthusiasm and reliability is key to coming here. We prefer people who want to come for the longer term as our best experiences have been when we really get to know people, and that takes time of course. So now to the Spam !! Hello again, I was previously a world traveler and adventurer. Now settled in the Pyrenees with Virginia my wife, we have a lovely house and farmland (see pix below) We aspire to eco development, the house already is carbon neutral with power supplied by photovoltaic solar panels. We have a lot of land and forest and live at 600metres above sea level. This altitude guarantees 4 seasons, Spring is glorious and begins very early by European standards Summer is guaranteed to be lovely weather without it ever (!) becoming unbearably hot, Autumn is fabulous with all the hardwood leaves of the forests turning the whole area into an artists canvas, Winter we have usually two big dumps of snow between December to late Feb early March there is great skiing (three resorts - approx.one hour away). We have 2 'sheep' dogs (see photo) - Kiltie has her own flock to practice on (at present 5 sheep), super friendly cats. In the recent past we have also kept pigs chickens goats ducks sheep etc etc. We always kill and eat our own livestock personally. Everything here gets a good life (and respectful death). The reason we have downsized the farm is because we have a 45' sailing ketch moored at the moment in Gibraltar and we have been spending long periods on the boat in a large restoration project (she is wooden and an American classic - we sailed her across the Atlantic). So now the boat is practically finished and we have to get the farm running again. I have a tractor (massey 70hp) plough harrow etc etc., a tracked digger and a dumper, two chainsaws etc etc. What we were hoping to accomplish this winter is to clear a piece of forest about 10 acres in size. We want to bring it back to pasture and mill all the wood we take out. In addition, we would like to maintain the veggy garden up and restore a beautiful barn (1840) as the roof has caved in and the stone walls need restoring etc etc. Where we live abounds in wildlife and birdlife, you can walk ride,ski, bike, anywhere you want, as far as Spain if you want, you will never come across a sign that says "Keep Out - Private Property" like in England (Ugh.) Life is good here, and in return for good honest work (see note below *) we can offer convivial company and accommodation, food is included as is wine. We are considered to be a good and creative cooks (and after saying this now we will have to prove it!) and like to share cooking with any-one who is interested in learning or who already has skills. I am very happy to pass along my skills to any-one interested in every facet of the project etc. So, send an e-mail with a description of who you are, what you like and perhaps a photo of yourself. This position is open to all regardless of race, sex, religion,lactose intolerance, age, number of heads etc., Aliens however, need to send me a telepathic response! We are not smokers (dope or baccy) and if we have the choice we always go for non smokers! Cheers Barry PS We speak English and French PPS We are omnivores but are happy to accommodate veggies if they are also tolerant.

Area: Crimea, 30 km from Sebastopol, 50 km from YaltaWelcome to Crimea, Russia. I am a Russian, who lives in the old village house next to Sevastopol. It is a nice area in the lower mountains, in 20 minute drive from the Black sea. We are a family of me and my two daughters, 12 and 13. I'm renovating my house. I also like horticulture, the weather is great for that: sunny and warm until the late fall. In a free time I can take you out hiking - there are many options for that. If you are interested in bee keeping(except for winter) , there is an option to learn about it in the neighboring village.
