Area: Extremadura***** we are looking for a couple or a pair of friends to come and house-sit for us over Christmas. We can promise you peace and quiet, beautiful nature, log fires, adorable dog company and a well stocked fridge (food and booze!) ***** We have a beautiful, rural two hectare organic finca near the Spanish town of La Codosera but bordering the Portuguese nature reserve of the Serra Sâo Mamede, where we, Becky and Martin, are developing a self sufficient lifestyle. We have a small vineyard, 200 olive trees, a flourishing fruit orchard, a large vegetable allotment and various flower gardens as well as a selection of mildly eccentric but adorable pets. We would ask for around 5-6 hours labour per day, 5 days a week, leaving 2 days free for you to explore this beautiful region. The finca is fairly remote but is within easy access of the many amazing sites less than 30 minutes drive away (incl. the world heritage towns of Marvao and Castelo de Vide in Portugal and the many prehistoric sites spread all around the area). We have a comfortable, fully furnished, double room available in the farmhouse or a small caravan on site if you prefer. Tasty and plentiful vegetarian food will be provided. For more information please contact us directly. We speak Spanish, Portuguese, French and German as well as English and look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Area: UmbriaI am an open minded person and I love new experiences. I live in a wonderful villa with swimming pool in the glorious countryside between Umbria and Tuscany, near Perugia. From 2012 I rent apartments and rooms for holiday and I need some help with tourists and the general maintenance of the villa (gardening, swimming pool, house works, etc). To make a "Workawayer experience" here is a good way to see the Italian culture from the inside and to really experience what everyday life is like. I like genuine international culture exchange and may aim is to keep this house full of positive energy.
