Area: United KingdomWe are Richard & Deb Charley and we own and run a Lodge, an eight bedroom guest house in the middle of a Forest in the beautiful English Lake District. Although we have no near neighbours we are only 2 miles from the pretty village of Hawkshead, which has 4 pubs and numerous shops and café's. Our very rural location would best suit people who love the outdoors and enjoy walking, cycling and mountain climbing. During the summer we are now getting so busy we would like some help!
Area: Midi PyreneesHi, We have a 6 hectare vineyard and winery here near Eauze SW of france making red, white and rosé wines. We're in the process of setting up a shop in the old cow shed and will be planting new Pinot Noir vines when the weather allows. I'ts going to be busier than normal, so we would be grateful for any help in the next few months. We also have 5 dogs, cats, horses, chickens, ducks, pigs which all love attention ;). Also our Dutch neighbours are setting up a really big polytunnel and would love to have some help with planting vegetables and selling their products at the local markets.
Area: Attiki****CAN NOT HOST ANYONE THIS YEAR UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO LACK OF CLIENTS!!!:) We only need one person at a time to help us in the hotel since there is not actually that much work. Sorry to couples and friends traveling together!:) Small family run hotel, very relaxed and good atmosphere (we like to think). We have visitors from many different countries but mainly greeks. 'We' in the hotel are a mix of Greek and English. There are many small jobs that we never get round to doing, it would be a great help if someone would be willing to help us out with things here and there. Also, volunteer will be a breath of fresh air to us and will make the hotel more 'exotic':) meaning international and interesting(at least for us). The main activity would be to take care of the garden and water it every morning. other jobs could be things like, serving coffee, cleaning pool, say hi and bye to visitors, food shopping. You will definitely experience the local community and we will help you learn Greek. We will provide breakfast, lunch, access to the pool and coffee or tea all day. We are never sure about dinner so we could not promise anything. In your free time, you can explore the beaches and go for walks round the island.In august, there is a small cultural festival with concerts and theatre. There are many bars, café's and clubs that we could go to together after i finish work each night. Please note that our hotel is closed between October and March because there are no tourists on the island.
Area: MallorcaWe are a friendly, fun loving family of five living in the centre of the island of Mallorca. We live in a finca on the outskirts of the pretty village of Alaro. Our three children are Max age 7, Theo age 4 and Bonnie age 8 months. During the summer holidays my husband will be working away regularly, their for we are looking for help with the children from 20th June to the end of July. The boys are full of energy and love to be kept busy. We spend the days going to beach, socialising with other families and doing various day trips to the water park etc. My eldest son needs to do school work daily over the long summer break so someone with teaching experience would be fantastic. Summers are hot but great fun here on the beautiful island Mallorca.
Area: Landkreis Rostock / Mittleres Mecklenburg / OstseeThis house is a small art project near the Baltic Sea and the Hanseatic town Rostock. You can come from February to October, please look in the calendar if there are bookings. Our place is not so far from Berlin or Hamburg (2h-2,5h) with the railway ore bus (meinfernbus.de) to Rostock and it is on the way from Kopenhavn (or Sweden) to Berlin. In history, this house was a cheese factory, it´s about 120 years old. Inside the house is quite new and moulder. It’s realy in a village, surrounded by nature. Attention: It´s not a farm, it´s an social-art-project, around with a lot of heavy physical activitys (no visitors under 22 years, please). We are teacher, craftsmen, farmer, conservator and artist and we live in close proximity but not directly under one roof (in neighborhood). We’re building some things with eco-materials in landscape like Playgrounds in the village, and special view points in the landscape. And we do practical things with the children of the primary school sometimes. You can help us in all practical matters. But you should also get some alone finished.
