Área:We are a small eco-project with accommodations and a restaurant in the hills of sleepy Las Galeras. Our location is famous for its breathtaking location, great food and cliff jumping. We are in the middle of nature, yet the nearest beach is only 15 minutes away on foot and downtown another 15 minutes. At any given day we have tourists from all over the world passing by or staying with us, contributing to the energizing traveler's atmosphere.
Área: Poitou CharentesHi! We are the Bowles family - and have a smallholding in the Charente department of France? We have a 4 bed farmhouse, 14ha (34 acres) of land and a variety of animals from our pet dogs, cats, horses and ponies, to our farm animals - including milking goats, rabbits, chickens and ducks. We are a family of 4 (Dad - Craig, Mum - Sara, Son - Alex 13 and Daughter - Amy 5), and are expats from the United Kingdom. Our ultimate aim is to lead as "Green" and self sufficient a lifestyle as possible. We run a few small business selling Diatomaceous Earth, ex army clothing and equipment, running team building and specialist adventure holidays and I (Sara) am an artist and sell my work. There is a comfortable spare bedroom with a double bed for guests. Current projects we require help with include: * Care and maintenance of the vegetable garden and general gardens * Renovation of old buildings (roofing, wall building, replacing joists, fitting window and doors, etc). * Fencing of land * Building an army style assault course * Building of stone boundary wall * Building a BBQ pit and Pizza Oven * Building cross country fences and show jumps for horses * Clearing of old waste from the land * Tree and hedge planting * Building a children's tree house * Decorating in the house The smallholding in general takes a great deal of looking after, clearing, tidying, organising, strimming, grass cutting, planting, weeding, fencing and so on - in general it is physical manual labour as we do not have large machinery. We are really looking for helpers who have a sense of humour and a good broad set of skills to offer, or people who are professionals in building, plumbing, roofing, electrics etc. so if you enjoy working hard and seeing worth while end results, then this could be the place for you. We don't take on any workawayers during the winter months October to end of March. If you would like to find out more please contact us.
