Région: AquitaineWe are a married couple ,British but not living in UK for some twenty five years. We both worked in sport and education as consultants in UK and worldwide. Our business interests included retail, design and service industries. Now living in a delightful location in SW France we run a seasonal letting complex. Still active, outgoing and enthusiastic by nature we enjoy sharing our knowledge of the area with our visitors.
Région: AndalusiaWe are a 50-something couple with four dogs and a small micro hotel near Orgiva in Andalucia, southern Spain. We live 30 minutes from the coast at Motril, 45 minutes from Granada and 1 hour 15 minutes from Sierra Navada's skiing resort. Our village is 4km from the busy town of Orgiva with many bars, shops and a busy market on Thursday mornings. NB There is NOTHING in our village except homes! So you would need to go to Orgiva for the closest bar and shops. We go regularly and would offer a lift when we do or you could borrow our mountain bikes or walk (4km - about one hour). We have renovated our cortijo and it is now three luxury self-catering suites for couples only. We have four dogs so at the very least you will need to be experienced in handling dogs. We are a very relaxed and informal pair who enjoy the Spanish way of life which includes the language, sun, lovely fresh food and wine!
Région: British ColumbiaWe have a 6 acre Organic homestead and my husband is a handyman, we always have many projects on the go. My husband and I are in our late 50's and would like more mature work-a-ways to come and help us. I love to cook and we mostly have our own meat, vegetables & eggs. We take willing volunteers for "up to 2 weeks only" at a time, sometimes willing to take on for longer depending on the projects that need to be done. We are in the country in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island between Victoria and Duncan, B.C., we are near the beautiful Kinsol Tressol, great walking and hiking trails, near a many provincial parks. Shawnigan Lake is great for swimming, canoeing and fishing. Most of our guests will have their own bedroom and on-suite bathroom. Since we are in the country is it advantages to have your own car, but not a necessity
Région: British ColumbiaBorn and raised in the beautiful Robson Valley I haven't found anywhere else in the world I would rather be. Over the last ten years I've rambled around Europe, Africa, Central America and the USA and the road always brings me back home. This special paradise is nestled between the Rocky and Cariboo Mountains with the Fraser River running through. My parents farm is on the banks of the river with views of the mountains in every direction you turn. I live on a piece of the farm - in a beautiful old log house - which is an on going project in itself. I would love to host and share what this valley has to offer, the special people in it (the town is known for it's sense of community and the friendliest people) and the wilderness surrounding us. I'm an artist and a music lover, traveller and soon to be gold miner. I love the outdoors, adventure and learning of new cultures.
