Area: TuscanyWe are a bi-lingual and bi-cultural British/Italian family made up of Charlotte, Claudio and our two children (aged 8 and 6). Our family lives in the small village of Montefegatesi in the Appenine mountains in northern Tuscany. We run our own construction and property management company, and would appreciate help with a wide variety of activities both within the business, and in our own home and with the children. In return we can offer an amazing experience in a medieval Tuscan hill town filled with friendly outgoing locals who will love to welcome you to their world and teach you the language. Over the summer, my sister-in-law and I are looking for individuals interested in establishing a type of summer activities curriculum for our four children (mine, and two girls aged 2 and a half and 6). This would run as a sort of summer school/camp. We would prefer people to stay for at least a month, but we're willing to consider shorter stays so please feel free to get in touch if you think we might be able to help each other out.
Area: Midi PyreneesWe're a French-English family, we have three fun bilingual kids who are 14, 11 and 8. We live in a very nice town in the south west of France, one hour away of Toulouse and Carcassonne. David is English and works with people with learning difficulties. I'm French and work part time as an English trainer. We live in a big house with a nice garden, very near the town centre. I tend to speak French to the kids and English to David, who only speaks English to them. The kids all go to a different school and driving them to their different activities can be hectic at times. We don't smoke and couldn't host a smoker.
Area: BerlinThe Park of Study and Reflection is located in the High Fläming Nature Park, an hour's drive southwest of Berlin, in the small idyllic village of Schlamau. Here one encounters a vast forest and meadows, inviting for a nature hike. The Schlamau Park of Study and Reflection is one of 30 such parks that exist in all over the world. They are a place for lingering and meeting, and radiate a new spirituality that rejects all forms of violence and discrimination, appealing to the sacred dimension of the human spirit, seeking to discover freedom and meaning. www.parkschlamau.org We are 30 friends from different countries, who bought this piece of land and this farmhouse. We are financing it from our own pockets and with the help of our friends. There is no any institution, organisation or company sponsoring us. The transformation into a real Park of Study and Reflection goes step by step and all the work we do ourselves is voluntary work. Nobody lives there permanently and the project does not include agriculture or animal husbandry
