Área: PiedmontApply for 2015 only From 5 years, me, Alessandro, and Monica, my wife, run a countryside boutique bed and breakfast in the hilly heartland of Piemonte wine country, in northwestern Italy. In the good season we need help, because we have more guest coming to stay at our place. We love laughters, relaxing, nature, good food and wine - but in summer we have little time for that: we focus on providing the best possible service to our guest from Italy, Europe and beyond.
Área: VärmlandPlease make sure you read the profile before you apply. And please do all hosts a favour: write to one place first, wait for their reply and then, if needed, ask another place. Otherwise you waste the time of many host. Thank you! This little farm is in Mid-Sweden, just next to the beautiful river Klarälven. A beaver resides next to us and elks are regular visitors. It is in Northern Värmland, 30km south of the border to Norway and 100 km north of Torsby, which is our “big city”. Please make sure you arrange all you further travels before you come - there is no cybercafe around. We want to revive our little Farm, as simple and ecologically sound as possible. We try to find reasonable ways of combining handwork and modern methods to do our work. We invite people who appreciate a simple, basic lifestyle, who like the calm and beautiful nature and want to do some practical work and who like animals. (No special animal experience needed - but the will to get to know them and care for them.) Please consider that you might meet other volunteers but it is also possible that you are the only one and be "alone" - which is a really good thing here in this nice area -but some people cannot handle that! We have to do a lot of other work too, so helpers have to be able to work on their own in a responsible way! Occasionally you can use a wood-fired sauna or the swedish badtunna - a 40 °C outdoor hotpot. You can enjoy sun bathing, fishing, walks in the beautiful surrounding (several very nice walking pathes invite hikers), take a canoe and paddle along the river, go swimming, maybe try horseback riding and much more as pass-time activities. Please make sure that you are properly insured, e.g. in case you hurt yourself. No smoking / no drugs! We can take up to 3 helpers at one time. Minimum age for helpers is 18. And you should have at least a little experience in doing practical work (e.g. how to hold a brush :) We prefer a stay of 2-3 weeks, longer might be possible. Don’t bring your best clothes. Sturdy shoes and rubber boots are useful, bring also a torch/better is a headlight and a warm sleeping bag + sleeping matress. As usual, helpers work 5 hours/day at 5 days per week - this is an average and this means really hard work. It is not possible to give a time shedule, because work needs to be done when it is time for it: this means flexible times! To give you an easy example: When the hay is dry and rain is coming, everybody has do give everything to get it in before the rain. No matter how many hours or days you have worked before. In other times very small an easy jobs let you think you are on holiday. We provide basic food, accommodation (read below!) and heaps of work mostly outside. We speak english, german and swedish. We love nature, a simple lifestyle and most of all: getting things done.
