Area: AndaluciaWe are a Canine and Feline boarding residence in Cordoba, Andalucía. The residence has been running for 5 years where we have 20 kennels and 7 catteries. Our clients are mainly English and Spanish and we are well known in our area for our great care that we take with their animals. The dogs get individually walked twice a day in our 2000m2 fully fenced in run area and also fed twice a day on return from their walks. The cats also get def twice a day and are let out of the cattery in their enclosed area where they can wonder while they cleaned out and fed. We also have a lot of animals ourselves which are 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 African grey parrot, 2 parrotlets, a chipmunk and a large aquarium which all also need to be fed etc.. I am English and I am 37 years old I have been living in Spain for 27 years, My wife Sandra is Colombian and is 35 years old and has been living in Spain for 4 years, we mainly speak Spanish in the house but we both do speak English. We mainly need help taking care of the animals but general help around the house too including cooking as we both do not cook to well!! We are about 1km from town where you can take a walk into town or use our mountain bike. We have a large property but only have 2 rooms, one being ours and the other for a guest. We have satellite tv so you can watch English television also if you like. We also only have one interior bathroom but we do have 2 exterior just in case. We also have a large pool, outside terrace with BBQ and a small kitchen. We will be having a new member to the house towards the end of July, Sandra is pregnant so as of July onwards we would like to have people that like children too, and any experience would be great too. Derren and Sandra
Area:About us, we are a young couple that runs an Eco Tourism Hotel outside of Olmue (Chile), in the ecologically protected zone of Quebrada Alvarado. The hotel nicely combines nature with comfort, being surrounded by mountains and offering the following services for our guests: •Swimming pool •Sauna •Outside Jacuzzi •Tennis •Disco Nights •Restaurant – Bar •Game Nights •Karaoke Nights •Tracking expeditions •Yoga •Horse riding expeditions Olmue is located in the 5 region of Chile, in the center of the country and has a very nice climate (Warm in summer and not to cold in winter). Its located approximately 1 hour from Santiago (Our Capital), 40 minutes from Viña del Mar (Beach city) or 50 minutes from Valparaiso (was declared a World heritage a couple of years ago). We also have our own Beer Brewery, so if you are interested in the brewery process we could show you how it works and we have a lot of beer :) In your free time you can obviously use the installations of the Hotel (Swimming pool, sauna, Disco, etc) The restaurant of the hotel provides the alimentation service for our regular staff and you are welcome to join them and get to know them better. We will also provide a special kitchen for the workawayers where you can prepare your own meal or a snack when the restaurant is closed. You will need to take care of transportation to Chile (Santiago) and of getting an international insurance. Sometimes we can arrange a pick up at the airport, depending on the hour and date of your arrival. If we cannot pick you up, we will provide instructions on how to get to our Hotel by bus (not that hard) We are very flexible about the duration of your stay, since we need people for all the seasons. So if we get along fine, there is no problem with you staying here for a long time and if you just want to stay 1 months, that’s fine with us to. It´s also important that you have an outgoing personality, that you are fun to be with and that you are able to create a good mood, so that if there are only a few customers, they still have a good time at our hotel (There are also going to be other work and travelers… so it´s not just you, but it’s important that you as a team are able to accomplish this) We speak English, German and obviously Spanish (We have had people who don’t speak Spanish, and it’s no problem, but obviously it’s a bit easier to communicate with our regular staff if you do have some basic knowledge of the language).
Area: Provence Alpes AzurWe are a franco-american family living in the Alps, our two children are aged 3 and 9. Lori works from home as a translator, and also travels quite often for her work. Fabien is a SAHD. Our home is located in a beautiful area in the southern Alps at 1000m elevation, near lac de Castillon. Our property borders two rivers, the Verdon and the Ivoire. We have a huge yard and there are many tourism opportunities nearby, although we are somewhat isolated with no neighbors or amenities within a 6km radius. It is easy to get here by train from Nice or Digne les Bains (our home overlooks the tourist train station,). We have two guest rooms in the main house, and an independent studio apartment (not yet suitable for guests, renovation to be completed). Things to do in the immediate area include hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, cycling, archery. There are great opportunities for day/weekend trips to places like Digne les Bains, Annot, Entrevaux, Puget-Theniers, Nice... travelling on the small tourist train that departs from the station right by the house (4 stops/day). The nearest village is 6 km away, population approx 550. The lake is about 8 km away, we are also not far from Castellane. We speak mostly French at home, with a little English here and there. If you want to improve your French, you will definitely have the opportunity to do so! We would also be delighted if guests want to speak English, especially around the children...
