Area: Southern FranceWe are a couple who have swapped the office for the outdoors and are renovating an old stone farmhouse in the beautiful and spectacular mountains of the Cevennes region in the south of France. Our land is in a secluded valley just 5 minutes walk from a small village and 5 minutes drive from a medium sized town which has all the typical Southern French characteristics as well as lots of local idiosyncrasies. So far we live in a caravan in a barn while we work on the farmhouse and cultivate the garden.
Area: EnglandLooking for workers to join us for our second year with Workaway Family of 3, me, husband and daughter (11) 3 dogs, 1 cat, 12+ chickens and a great sense of humour! We would like you to stay with us initially for up to 2 weeks and can consider a longer stay provided we all get along and if we have no other commitments. Ideally we want someone with good English, a sense of humour and to be part of the family. During spring and summer months there is lots of outdoors work to be done, painting, tidying the garden, maintaining the vegetable garden, looking after the chickens; feeding, cleaning and help with walking our three excitable dogs. People who are willing to help with housework, cooking. Some occasional help with our daughter's homework would be appreciated and maybe experiee with selling on EBay could be useful, though not essential! We don't smoke and we are not vegetarians, we do love our meat, and enjoy good traditional home cooked food as well as dishes from around the world, so may be you could cook us your favourite dinner! We live in the Surrey Hills near Leatherhead and Dorking, in a semi-rural location, down a muddy track. We have recently renovated our house and detached cottage but there is still plenty of work to do. We have approximately 1.5 acres of garden and woodland meadow, pond and a few outbuildings and a vintage caravan! We are just a short walk from the village with a few useful shops, supermarket, chemist, chinese and indian take-away and restaurants. In the other direction, at the end of the road you will find yourself on over 500 acres of woodland with rare butterflies and some bird watching if you're interested! There are a variety of historical National Trust properties, an world award winning vineyard, the London Olympics cycle road race course, theme parks and other areas of interest all in this area. We are amongst some very beautiful English countryside to explore but also near some larger towns if you want to explore the shops! We have a main line train station 15/20 mins wals, 1k walk from the house, running to local towns and direct to London, so you can be in central London in under one hour. We are also within one hour's drive to the coast. Gatwick and Heathrow airports are also only 45 minutes drive. So we have it all here!
Area: Tuscany, UmbriaDear guests, The work can be hard, but so is the play. We're a family fixing up a country house, raising two children, cultivating an organic garden, and caring for 50 olive trees. So we're pretty flat out. We're near Chiusi in Central Italy, halfway between Roma and Firenze, Assisi and Siena. The house and grounds are within an old estate ensuring privacy and providing swimming pools, tennis courts, playing fields, and wooded parkland.
Area: Valencian CommunityHola, we are Trixie and Allan Taylor. Just now we need help preparing for guests involving decorating and soft furnishings and gardening/conservation work. Also help renovate a 'Green Tariff' Backpackers / Cyclist Hostel in the La Safor mountains, Valencia, just 30 mins from great blue flag surfing beaches on the Costa del Azahar, Spain. Next autumn and winter we are offering winter sun adventure holidays for all abilities and yoga retreats and painting holidays. Our place is wheelchair friendly and now we are also open as a hostel for backpackers and cyclists (Eco rates/tariffs) We are on the Via Verdi route in El Raco Del Duc, Sierra La Safor Valencia. Sports Climbing and mountain biking are on offer and a vast complex of caves containing Neolithic paintings and artefacts have also recently been discovered nearby. Our house is named after 'the Window', the huge hole at the top of Mt La Safor, one and a half hrs from Valencia and Alicante airports. We're on the disused railway from the port of Gandia (vibrant city, medieval markets, theatre, cinema, concerts, great restaurants and bars, shopping center, train station... half an hour away from us), to Alcoy... a 13km walk of unsurpassed, limestone crags, Moorish terraces, punctuated by five exciting tunnels hugging the Rio Serpis gorge to Lorcha We're in the Cirque de La Safor... a huge crater said to be an 'energy door' like 'Machu Piccu' We can take people to help us in winter or to house/ dog sit in summer. There is a studio flat. It has a separate entrance, courtyard with trees and terraced organic gardens with fruit trees down to the river...great for wild swimming on summer. Occasionally, in the winter, Trixie likes to visit family and go back to UK leaving Allan, two dogs, three cats, a rabbit and a wood-burning stove... to fend for themselves in this beautiful place. Then she needs someone a 'stand-in' for her. We believe in contributionism and you will be joining a community with other workawayers when you come here. Allan is also getting less able and it would be great to know we will be supported all winter by a great team of Workawayers. We want to renovate our under build to make a 'refugio' for walkers, cyclists and of course pilgrims. Any volunteers gratefully welcome. We all share the work of the household and cooking though Trixie can teach you, also the general housework and garden maintenance and lots of paella parties and great walks in the mountains and swims in the pool and river. There will be conservation work keeping paths open on the river bank. We are preparing a place for groups to meditate there. Our house is eco-friendly (solar panels) and our organic terraces and trees could also do with a supporter! In winter you would be upstairs, with us, in the main house (four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two wood stoves. Allan had a heart transplant 28 yrs ago and was a teacher and loved climbing, running, cycling, swimming, sailing and kayaking, theater and, after the transplant, worked as a volunteer with the less able in all of these. He's still a champion swimmer (in the Transplant Games) but he's now in need of support and companionship. Trixie ran a vegetarian whole-food restaurant and has worked with adults with learning and physical disabilities. She taught in a Steiner/Waldorf school. She sings, writes, draws, spins wool, knits (Fair Isle and Arran) and sews. She'd like to share skills and loves cooking, baking and making bread, walking, swimming in the river, meditation and yoga. Come and visit to see if you'd like to spend time with our remarkable family. Bienvenido to our wild river gorge and our home.
Area: South west WalesI am a widow with my daughter helping me out at the moment, along with our much loved Red Setter. Living in a stunning, rural part of south west Wales near the Towy Valley in Carmarthenshire, our smallholding of 10 acres is set in a peaceful and attractive area, with no immediate neighbors. We are needing help tidying up the house, fields and garden. Work needing to be done includes painting inside the house, mowing grass in garden, mending fences and weeding in fields. The smallholding is bordered on one side by woodland and a stream at the bottom of our land so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the copious wildlife. We often watch red kites hovering above our fields. We can see foxes, badgers and sometimes glimpse a deer, sometimes we see hedgehogs, rabbits and polecats, hear geese flying overhead and tawny and barn owls calling through the night. We have kept our fields organic and natural so there is an ever changing abundance of plants and wild flowers. Our 5 ponies graze the fields. The local attractions include national botanical gardens, Aberglasney gardens, a deer park, Dinefwr house national trust property and several castles. 3 miles from the charming country town of Llandeilo and 13 miles from the larger market town of Carmarthen.
