Région: Northern IrelandI live on a small farm at the foot of Slemish Mountain at the top of the Glen's of Antrim. I run a publishing company from home and have no children; only 2 dogs and 4 horses. My main equestrian interest is eventing and I currently have a horse competing at 2 star level and two young horses. The scenery around my house is beautiful and the roads are quite for walks or bike rides. The nearest village is 3 miles away. I run a very sociable house and often have friend's around for dinner and to stay. I love cooking and have had young helpers staying with me before. Some on repeat visits!
Région: MunsterThanks, we are now boked for 2014. We are a family of three living in a beautiful rural location in Co. Tipperary. Oliver and Oisín work full time and I (Tracy) work part time in adult education but am free for three months of the summer. This is when the garden is my priority and we have a large vegetable garden and poly tunnel. We produce our own food to grow and also sell at the weekly farmers market and our honesty stall at the front gate. We live happily with our dog, two cats, two ducks and four hens. Our aim is to become more self sufficient and earn an income from our garden and house. This is where we need your help. We have built a self catering apartment for holiday lets and everything is only half done. Half of the tiling, half of the wooden flooring, half of the painting, half of the kitchen presses, half of the plumbing. We need help to finish this and hope you have some of these skills. Once the tiling/painting/flooring is finished I can start decorating and we can then get a website and market the apartment. Can you help us with any of these tasks? We are now looking for help in August and we will have a French volunteer staying then to help with the garden as well. If this suits please contact me. We do ask that all volunteers have their own insurance before they stay with us.
Région: AuvergneHi, We are a british couple who are renovating a farmhouse in the mountainous Auvergne region of France. Previously a second home we moved down here a few months ago to get the project finished. Ben has been doing these projects in France for many years so it could be a good opportunity to learn a knew skill or two from him. We love cooking and good food and wine. There are many projects on with this renovation, both inside and out... see the 'Volunteer Work section'.... We can also help out with french speaking, you'll need this to chat with the neighbours, who are wonderful, but do not speak a word of English.... But they give us freshly laid eggs every day!! This is a very traditional part of France so far quite undiscovered by the non French. Walking here is fantastic (wild strawberries, blueberries and raspberries can be found on walks around the area..) , cycling quite challenging, But both are a great way to get to know the area (We have a couple of bikes for you to use). We are creating a garden at the moment, using some old stones to make some new features and having a lot of fun. There is also some interior, laying down boards, and some dry lining. We are on a farm with cows, sheep, horses, cats and dogs. The weather is beautiful and the view is all the way across the valley. The famous Puy Mary mountain is in view. The air is clean and the water is We love to get some work done in the day but also put as much importance on a good lunch! Someone with gardening skills would be wonderful. And all round handy people! We will be fitting a kitchen in the next month and doing some dry-lining for that If you are interested we would love to skype or chat so send us a message and we could arrange that.. Thank you.

Région: CanterburyHi, I'm Roelant. A Dad with two young teenage boys. Trying to run a business, be a Dad and sail is all consuming. My boys are bright and bubbly and they'll certainly have some questions for you. I have a landscaping plan which I'd love to see fulfilled this summer. The current project is to install two outdoor baths with some decking and planting around them. Rainwater harvesting for the baths would be a bonus. I live in a large house on a hill in a beautiful part of town close to walking tracks, the beach and the harbour. Although broken after the quakes, my house is clean and tidy and I like to cook basic meals. Honesty, integrity and respect are important to me.
