Region: NorrbottenWe are a family of five who live approximatley 40 km north of the Artic circle. A couple in our early & middle thirtys plus our three children age 9, 4 and 2. Our oldest son is very active and loves playing football. I do running as exercise and also cause I like it. At the moment we do alot of packing and working on the house as we need to get it all done asap. We value our family time and like both hard work and relaxing during our holiday. Usually I study fulltime and my man works fulltime. Our children go to school and nursery. During summer time you can experience lovely summers nights that never end as the midnight sun stays up all night. You can enjoy bike rides in our tiny village, less than 100 people live here so it is a very quiert place. Take a walk in the beautiful forest and appreciate some quiet time to yourself. Great possibility to meditate and admire the nature. If you’re lucky you might see wild animals of the north, such as moose, reindeer, squirrel, hare and maybe even a bear. Relax and try our old fashion style sauna or indoor sauna. Perhaps take a run or go swimming in the river. Ideal for a person who needs or likes a peaceful and tranquil stay. Celebrate Swedish midsummer with us and maybe even one of the biggest markets in the north (if you are over during those dates). We are looking for volunteers with a great work attitude who can help us to scrape and repaint our house which will be the main priority, we need to get that done as we are selling our home after summer. Carrying and packing stuff for our move, or just normal housework could be other tasks to do once the house is done. It’s very important to us that you are happy with your stay and that we are happy with your work, that’s why we value honesty and an open dialogue to improve both ways. We are hoping to make new friends for life, learn about a new culture and to teach about our country and life in north of Sweden. Ideally you are a volunteering couple who already know each other, i.e friends, partners, lovers, siblings, cousins etc. We would like to have two volunteers so if we can’t find two volunteers who already know one another we will look for two from different places. This means you need to be a friendly and outgoing person who gets on well with others. You will be sharing our cosy caravan with the other volunteer, if we can get hold of two, if not you will be living in the caravan on your own. We would like to have you staying with us for 2 weeks ( a possibility of extending to 3 if you really wish so). We would love to get 2 volunteers to stay with us for 2 weeks. The reason for this date enquiry is that we would like to get house painted as soon as possible! as we want to sell our house. Beginning of June I will have to travel away for a week but will be back weekend before the 9th. We have got a house in Pajala, 35km from Kardis, that we are planning on buying. Looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully also meeting YOU in the north of Sweden.
Region: GentWe live in a house situated in the city of Ghent, Belgium (less than 3 km from the City Historical Center) a really interesting, culturally rich and sparkling city of Belgium. We are group of friends from different countries and we love this multicultural environment where the main keywords are: understanding and respect. The most of us are professionals between 20 and 30 yo (but age is not really an issue for anything). At home there are always things to repair, maintain working and organize, we are looking for someone skilled who can think about it, something like an housekeeper but focused on the maintenance and organization of the house. He will have important responsibilities about the house and the van (car). We are looking for someone who stays at least six months (the longer the better) , starting from now (or within few weeks). We offer a private room, a bicycle and a small bonus on the end of the month (based on the done tasks). The working schedule in average 15 hours a week, you can schedule the works as you want (all on one day or spreaded out) and you will have time for your activities (extra job, studying, chilling out, traveling). If you like self-organization it will be nice for you to live with us because you will get your own room and you will be independent in your works. Of course the first couple of weeks will be a bit more challenging for you cause you have to learn quite many things. We believe that living together is not easy, but each of us has to do some effort in order to make everyday life at home enjoyable for everybody. We are also sensible about ecology and we like to keep our home a place where we waste as less as possible (energy & products), we buy & sell second hand, one of your tasks would be also to keep everybody motivated about it. We appreciate to spend time together but nothing is forced (we try to share at least the sunday dinner together). In case of any issue we are all open to democratic discussions. We are all couchsurfing friendly. IMPORTANT FOR US: Only Non-Smokers (We prefer to have non smokers at home). No Drugs at home. No food is provided, you will get a bonus dependent on the tasks that you do monthly, (it is not a big sum mostly). You have a driving license (from time to time you need to use our Van). You need to have EU citizenship or permission (visum) to be in Europe for at least one year.
Region: OntarioI live in an off-grid straw bale house in the country just outside of the small town of Buckhorn, Ontario. I have 15 acres of mostly wooded land and I run my renewable energy business from my home (primarily solar installations). My son, who is 9 years old, stays with me sometimes (and sometimes with his mom). I am a ovo-lacto vegetarian and a non-smoker. Just to be clear on this, it is important that any workaway volunteers that I host be non-smokers. You don't have to be vegetarian, but all of the food that I prepare will be vegetarian; I do not want to have any meat or fish at my place. I have a large dog (Bouvier de Flandres) named Frankie and a cat named Pumpkin. They are not vegetarian, but they don't smoke either (at least not that I have seen). One final request that I have is for volunteers to avoid strong fragrances (things like cologne, after-shave, perfume, and so on). I am very sensitive to smell and many of these things can give me a headache. Soaps, shampoos, etc with essential oils or mild scents usually are not a problem. Sorry to be picky, but I need to be comfortable in my own house. I am looking for Workaway volunteers who are interested a placement of up to two weeks.
Region: 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...
Region: 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.
