We are looking for volunteers who can stay one month or longer.
Area: BrittanyI own a beautiful manoir in rural Brittany that I have been renovating for the last three years. It also has a farmhouse which I have completed, where my mother lives full-time. As well as the remaining painting and finishing in the manor house, there's plenty of landscaping and gardening that needs doing (and fun toys/tools to do it with!) when the weather is good. We are currently (spring 2014) looking for someone with plenty of muscle who enjoys working outside - tractor mowing, strimming, shifting wood, etc. - and who ideally has a way with temperamental machinery. This is a great opportunity to spend some time in an unspoilt, rural area of France. The local town is 5km away, and you can get to the coast in about 40 minutes.
Area: British ColumbiaWe are Matthew, an architect, and Jane a retired newspaper publisher become mini-farmer. We live on a landscaped half acre with an additional leased acre for a horse and chickens and major vegetable garden. We also run a romantic, non-traditional detached B&B. A swimming pool makes for pleasant time off in the summer. It is just heated with the sun. Our eclectic house is always happiest with guests. We live in the Okanagan Valley, a 5 hour drive east of Vancouver. The valley is one of Canada's few wine growing regions, and there is a winery on each side of our property.
Area: Lanquin, Alta VerapazWe are a new hostel in the Lanqin Semuc Champey area with a 28 bed capacity. All our rooms, private and dorm are equipped with private bathrooms and hot showers.
