Area: Pays de la LoireI'm a French and English teacher at a vocational school and the mother of a 14 year old boy. We live in a flat but we have a private garden. Our home is located in the city-center but it's very quiet where we live. Public transport is 100 meters away from the house. I'm very fond of my job and I like to read and listen to music. My son loves to speak English and he can also speak some Chinese.
Area: LeinsterWe operate a small hostel and B&B accommodating about 50 persons in the small seaside town of Wicklow. We provide activities for our guests from hiking in the Wicklow Mountain National Park to horse riding, kayak hire , sea swimming, cycle hire and more... We are open since 2010 and are very enthusiastic about what we do. Our goal is to help our guests enjoy their stay as much as possible.We need help in the running of our hostel including laundry, cleaning, night watch, sometimes painting in fact any job we do ourselves.If you can clean a toilet, iron, hang out washing, wash floors, clean windows and other similarly glamorous jobs then we want to hear from you!There is also a turn to be taken at night time. We provide accommodation and breakfast. Generally, volunteers cook for themselves but on quiet days we cook and we can all eat together. Our helpers do 2 essential things for us. night manager and morning shift for cleaning/laundry for 5.0 hours work for 5 days /week. As the season progresses and we get busier we have another shift helper. We prefer to give the day off on a Tuesday or Wednesday. We prefer a duration of 8 weeks. If volunteers want to travel it might be possible to work up an extra day depending on how busy we are at that time.We run trips to the mountains for our guests and if the work is done and there is a free space then we give the space to our volunteers. We are only one hour from Dublin and 40 buses a day run between Wicklow and Dublin.
Area: Castilla la ManchaHola soy Mar, estoy construyendo con ayuda de amigos y voluntarios mi casa en el campo. Ya está creciendo el huerto, pero aún queda barro por poner en las paredes. Me encantaría recibir a alguien con conocimientos de carpintería ya que la casa necesita un porche, a parte de unos muebles hechos con pallets. La creatividad tiene cabida en todos los rincones, también en los mosaicos de la cocina. Hasta que funcione la ducha hay una habitación con dos camas en la casa del pueblo,(típica manchega) pero yo me quedo a menudo en el campo. La casa es muy agradable y acogedora, pero es un loft con altillo y compartiriamos la estancia. Siempre disfruto mucho de la compañía de la gente agradable que me visita, hacemos salidas al campo en las tablas de Daimiel y las lagunas de Ruidera que podemos recorrer en el kayak. Hay pueblos muy bonitos en los alrededores como Almagro con su festival internacional de teatro en Julio y Campo de Criptana por ejemplo. el trabajo es de 5 horas al día y yo aporto las comidas y alojamiento.
Area: Midi PyreneesWe are a family of three, including a three year-old little girl, living in a house in the very South of France, 5 minutes from a quaint historical little town in the Pyrenees. The house has a large garden and a couple pastures and is set in a very quiet area (a hamlet surrounded by pasture land) in the foothills of the Pyrenees (40 minutes from ski resorts and 2 hours from the sea). We are francophones and I am an English teacher at the local high school. I've visited 22 countries and lived in the UK and Canada. When I was a child, we used to host foreign students who wanted to learn French and I loved the experience. We are very "Nature"-oriented, eat organic food, and have a vegetable garden as well as some fruit trees.
