Area:My name's Ahmed ,I own this house community at the closest you could inhabit next to great pyramids of Giza; We sublease rooms within the house either for short or long term basis. Ours is a four apartment house with a breathtaking pyramid view; the best in town! We have it fixed with a barbecue and cushions on the shared rooftop. 2 apartments have four bedrooms. The apartments all have shared living rooms furnished with a sitting area, a table, and cable TV. There is wireless internet access in the whole building. The area is away from downtown, that's how we privileged of getting nice clean breeze and very quiet atmosphere. We also find everything we need nearby. There are supermarkets open 24/7, swimming pools, cafés and restaurants, and even a golf course right at the foot of the pyramids;). If you want to go downtown, the transportation is efficient and very cheap, costing no more than 50 cents!
Area: OsloOur farm is centrally located between Oslo and the main airport in Norway: Gardermoen. It only takes 30 min by train to the central station in Oslo (3. km to the station. Bikes on the farm) Despite its central location the farm is really in the countryside, surrounded by hills, wheat fields and forests with deer and moose. We have just taken over the farm after my father and are in the beginning of everything. We grow wheat and are planning to have vegetables, hens, ducks and some goats. The house was built in 1914. The ground floor is newly renovated in typical style of 1914. We will accomadate you in your own room with wi-fi, and an adjacent bathroom. We can offer your own kitchen facilities if you prefer, or you can share with us. We are a very social couple interessted in people. At the moment we are part time farmers with other jobs. One is a sociologist working with refugees in Oslo, while the other is a communication officer for a government agency in Oslo. We are interested in culture and languages; english, german and spanish understood. We would love to learn your language and culture, and if you are interested we can introduce you to our language and traditions. We are looking for helpers in april/may 2014. We are looking for strong men/couple who have experience and training in carpentry. Special skills in gardening is also interesting since we are restoring the old garden on the farm, but because of the climate in Norway the garden project is starting in may/june.
Area: Midi PyreneesWe live in the french pyrenees and have renovated the house in our small mountain home. We have ongoing building/renovation work, landscaping and gardening projects. Nina is a yoga instructor and Ian (background in architecture and theatre) is a woodturner/builder maker. We have availability most of the year but often slow down in winter. Having moved here two years ago there are some small finishing jobs to be carried out on one building, there are brambles to be strimmed / slashed, trees to be cleared up etc. Its mostly outdoor work and physical, we like to do it as and when we feel like but usually in short bursts, a few hours at a time leaving time to read, snooze and generally enjoy the nature and environment here. We are happy for people to come for about two weeks initially but longer stays are welcome if it flows like that. We generally work with one person at a time or a couple/friends. Ian and Nina.
