Area: MallorcaOur home is in a semi rural part of Mallorca on the outskirts of a small Spanish village. We have five dogs, a horse, 2 ponies and lots of stable cats and I am a professional horse trainer and riding instructor. A couple or 2 friends needed from September, short or long stay! One person helps in the house and garden The other person helping with the pool and garden and animals... It would be great if one of you was a 'Handy man' (or woman!) to help with painting and bits of DIY. You would need to be animal lovers too to help walk and feed the dogs! If you are light weight and can ride then you will be able to ride when you like! There is an old 4x4 available for local trips for 25's and over and also 2 push bikes to get to the local village or explore the neighbour hood! The public transport is 5 minutes walk away, which takes you directly to the city of Palma (20 minutes) From here you can travel all over the island to discover the many beautiful places Mallorca has to offer. The village has an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops typical of a small Spanish village. For more photos and information Can Dapau

We live in a small town, which is situated between Solo and Jogjakarta (both sites are the center of javanesses culture, 30km from mount Merapi), named Klaten.

It is more on the experiences. Thanks to workaway.info and its foundation, whom creatively makes any language learners meet and interact, each other. This experience is valuable for me especially for my students. My students came from many background mostly are the less-fortunate ones.

Area: Lower SaxonyI´m a social worker, 60, and fosterfather of two brothers, 15 and 16 years old - since eight years. We live in a house with garden 100 km south of Hamburg in the country near two little towns: Lüchow and Dannenberg - Wendland A dog, some hens, rabbits and two goats are the animals in the moment.. Every day the boys get help with there homework by a nice women for few ours and also there is a nice lady who helps in the house. In the past there was no time to do my garden. But now I try a project together with the boys. We just startet: self sufficiency. It´s my dream since a long time and now the children are ready to accept their responsibility and like to be a part of the project . More or less. We are not fanatic, we just try to get more natural foot and dont eat industrial meat , of course we still buy things in the supermarket. We want to respect the nature and try to contribute a bit of our possibilities. We respect each other and every individual. Next year I will take up disabled children for one or two weeks uring school-holliday to relive their parents - and fortunately get the same for me. For this stay it´s good to have a project like ours to involve the Children. But first it must work. Now we are looking forward to meet people who are interested to live with us for a time bringing idears for the garden and the project and like to help us for a wile. Together it´s much easier and makes fun. We are interested in meeting people with different culture and habits and sharing experiences. Meanwhile it´s late summer and the garden overgrows again, it´s too much work and I couldn´t forsee the quantity of work. The boys are teenies now, and so it´s on me...... So I think, I need help to save what I can and don´t give up.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonOur location is in a beautiful sunny and sheltered river canyon - it's a very special place ! - On one side we have access to small local towns and villages (the nearest is about 5 Kms) and on the other the huge wilderness of the Corbieres which extends for 60 kms towards the Mediterranean. The canyon is green wide and has the sun all day ! The famous and slightly wierd village of Rennes le Chateau is nearby (If you have read "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail) and we occasionally take a picnic to the top of our local mountain or explore the area. It's a calm and rural experience but not totally isolated from the "real" world and shopping trips get us out and about from time to time. Bring a project of your own as well writing drawing or bring an instrument - its the ideal place to do this. There are two places to swim - one is a natural rock pool - vital in the summer heat ! Canoeing, White water rafting, Riding and a Ropes Course are all available in the local area. We are a gay friendly venue - not a requirement !! - but just to say if you are gay you can know that you will be very welcome. If you cherish a dream of having "a place in the country" one day then the many and varied activities at the Moulin will give you hands on experience of Estate Management on a modest scale. You will quickly see what is really involved and the multi-tasking it requires !
