Région: Rhone AlpsWe are an energetic British couple who have recently bought an old farmhouse which we are renovating in the beautiful Drome les Collines, situated in the middle of a renowned golf course and 2 klms from the river Rhone in noted vineyard country.We also own a chalet two hours drive away between the ski resort of La Clusaz and Annecy in Haute Savoie and divide our time between the two properties where there is always lots to do in both places for Workaways. We have lived over half our lives in France and have had a very successful property finding business in the French alps for 20 years. We have three children and three grandchildren all of whom live in the area.We are sporty, outgoing and have a couple of horses and two dogs. The situation of both our houses is idylic. In the ideal world you would have your own car. Most of the work is outdoors, clearing up the land, general maintenance, painting...
Région: KarnatakaHi im Eric and my brother & me run a small B & B and a small Restaurant. We are always looking for an extra hand to help us out with the administration, overseeing cleanliness, house-keeping, guest relations, and staff etc at the B&B as well as the Restaurant. Also would be interesting if we can have someone with restaurant cooking experience and skills to help us introduce new dishes and a different taste from time to time at the Restaurant. Would be happy to have you over as our guest while you help us out and would be glad to offer you food and shelter while you're here. We have flexible timings which gives you the flexibility to move around and do whatever you want and at the same time help us out. For the Restaurant we work a 6 day week with a weekly off on Monday's. Looking forward to host you :). We are also in the process of starting construction of an Eco Resort in Sikkim (which is beautiful little place in the North East of India) and thus would be looking at a helping hand there as well soon.
Région: Lake DistrictPLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF COMING AND ARE JUST USING ME AS A BACKSTOP YOU ARE NOT ONLY MAKING IT AWKWARD FOR ME BUT OTHER WORKAWAYS WHO WANT TO COME ARE BEING TOLD THAT I HAVE NO VACANCIES AND ARE MISSING THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. Our cottage is situated in Grasmere the heart of the English Lake District. This stunning location provides superb mountain views and immediate access to the mountains for walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts.

Adjacent to the Coast to Coast path and close to many local mountain bike routes, we cater for all. Family-run, we offer bunk and breakfast accommodation for individuals and groups, with evening meals by arrangement. The accommodation comprises of two 12 bed bunk rooms, a dining room with wood burning stove and television, free WiFi, and a drying room. We are on the main bus route from Windermere Railway Station to Keswick. There is a regular service and the bus stops outside. Car parking is on the adjacent lay-by. Welcoming all, the Cottage is run by Philip Harrison. Philip is a retired police officer, having spent most of his career in the Underwater Search Unit, he would describe himself as competent swimmer. He completed The Two Way Windermere Open Swimming Championship with a time of 11 hours, 18 minutes and 53 seconds – as well as several one way swims in 5 hours. Philip is also a keen cyclist and time trialist. However, his true love is the hills of Lakeland and especially Grasmere, where he cam be found swimming in the tarns at Langdale, Grisedale, Stickle, and his favourite (Butter Crag).
